About a year ago, Felix and Clemens of Broken Rules approached us about funding for a prototype he and the team have been working on. It had rudimentary programmer art and not much in the way of content, but the core interaction felt juicy and because of their history of making gorgeous games, we believed they can execute on their vision for the visuals of the game. So we helped fund the game.
A year later and the Old Man’s Journey‘s visuals have earned it a nomination for Excellence in Visual Art in the 2017 Independent Games Festival. You can get a sense for the game’s look with the screenshot and teaser video in this post, but it also does magical things with visual story telling and that’s something you will just have to wait and experience for yourself.
