The first title of the Dead Synchronicity series from Fictorama Studios features a 2D point and click adventure / puzzle game. The game play features not only dystopian overtones but pays homage to classic adventure games like Day of the Tentacle or Broken Sword with a more mature theme along the lines of Sanitarium. The developers are also keeping to the "open-world" experience and HD cutscenes which, for now, will have text in English and Spanish. Other languages as well as a Linux version and more are listed on their Kickstarter Stretch Goals.
The storyline for DS is a terrible pandemic that is turning all of humanity into the Dissolved - the sick whose deliria provide them with supernatural cognitive powers but also steers them towards a gruesome death. The root of this illness seems to be the Great Wave, an inexplicable chain of natural disasters that destroyed all energy sources and communications and plunged the world into a chaos ruthlessly controlled by both the authorities and the army alike. The player will have to help Michael, a man with no past, recover his identity and decode the events that brought the world to the edge of collapse. Because, if Michael doesn’t hurry, he won’t be able to avoid the impending moment of dead synchronicity… when Time itself dissolves.
I caught up with Producer, PR Manager and barista extroidinaire Luis Olivan earlier this week:
Break The Skyline won this month's Johnny Cutt Promotion's Featured Artist of the Month. Out of Wilmington, N.C. Break the Skyline is comprised of musicians from other bands that had fallen apart. In the seven months they have been together they've been heating up the North Carolina Indie scene enough to win the 2nd JCP artist contest.
Although not signed yet they will be releasing their music thru ITunes and at their shows. In fact they will be tearing up Bullard's in Burgaw North Carolina tonite then moving onto Tremont Music Hall in Charlotte North Carolina on April 12th.
Be sure to hit up their Facebook & Reverbnation & let them know who sent you!
Today bought us probably the biggest piece of gaming news for the year as Grand Theft Auto 6 has been announced.
Instead of going down the route of GTA 4's DLC packs The Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost And The Damned. Rockstar have not only announced that they'll be bringing us a whole new game in the lead up to next year's holiday period, but they'll also be doing it from their brand new studio.
This weeks hard hitter Drill comes at you from Raleigh, N.C. Their acclaimed 2003 album "The Faceless Majority" under the name Drill 187 launched a 23 state tour winning rave reviews. In 2005 the band took a 6 year break reforming in 2011 for some reunion shows which re-ignited the drive to share their craft and I for one am ecstatic they are back! Between Jason's powerful vocals and the sick beats these guys should be back on top in no time. I had a chance to catch up with Jason this week:
