It has been mere hours since my last post, but as soon as I saw this project on Kickstarter I knew I just had to rush this new post out. This time the spotlight’s on a PC game by a team lead by developer Zak Ayles, an unique looking title by the name of Lioness.
When I came across this project I was instantly grabbed by the game’s intriguing tag line of “What does it feel like to not exist?”
Ayles have said to be employing unique new ways of approaching games as a storytelling medium, and have promised an organic narrative experience that will feel personal and unique to everyone who plays it.
Featuring non-linear gameplay that focuses on social interactions, life, and narrative, the player takes control of a freelance journalist, as he conducts research on a series of seven mysteriously missing people in this experimental adventure about human connection.
Looking at its distinctive art style, and taking in the atmospheric melodies of its trip-hoppy soundtrack, it is hard not to get excited for this ambitious little project.
Not sold yet? Well, did I mention that it also features a plot that involves a nicotine addicted cat, time-travel, yakuza, and interdimensional coffee?
As of right now, the funding pledge drive has just under 50 hours left to go – time is quickly running out, so while you still can, do yourself a favour and pop on over to http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/967459848/lioness!
