Description
Release date: Early 2017
Gray Skies, Dark Waters drops you into a world of secrets, unanswered questions, and - just maybe - the supernatural. Search to reveal the truth - or, at least, your version of it.

What does it mean to truly disappear without a trace? In this modern interpretation of centuries-old folktales from Scotland, Japan, and Finland, that’s the question that seventeen-year-old Lina Garrett has to consider after her mother vanished from the Chesapeake Bay town where the Garretts live. Take Lina on a thought-provoking journey through the town of Avett’s Landing to unravel the mystery of her mother’s disappearance and explore what it means to be part of a family - even a troubled one.

Fans of story-based games like The Path, Life is Strange, and To the Moon will love this story-driven adventure game in which your continuous choices decide the future of the Garrett family. The world of Avett's Landing comes alive with an original score, full voice-acting, hand-drawn paintings inspired by children’s book illustrations, and a series of short stories to round out the characters. It features 3D models interacting in 2D settings, similar to classics like Grim Fandango, The Longest Journey, and Resident Evil 2. Gray Skies, Dark Waters takes literary inspiration from the writings of Edgar Allan Poe, Flannery O’Connor, Jorge Luis Borges, and Shirley Jackson. The commentary mode presents both developers explaining their process as well as experts discussing the swan maiden tale, the relationship between games and books, and other topics that make their way into Gray Skies, Dark Waters.

Cannot wait to see all this hard work become an experience on the screen. Brilliant concept, beautiful art style, moving script. We need more of this kind of narrative video game.
