Cape Town based developer THE BROTHERHOOD launched the crowd funding campaign for their isometric, post-apocalyptic adventure game, BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION yesterday (24 Jan) and are seeking $120,000 on Kickstarter to complete the project.
Different from the dystopian environments of their previous releases – STASIS and CAYNE – the studio embarks on a fresh but evocative African environment to whet any adventure gamers’ appetite. BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION aims to be a dramatic sci-fi story inspired by the 80s – with a futuristic twist!
The never before seen, African, post-apocalyptic setting opens up a menagerie of bizarre creatures and vibrant characters, alongside a new world inspired by Sub-Saharan flora and fauna.
By using photogrammetry and scale model elements, THE BROTHERHOOD hopes to deliver the unique tribal punk aesthetic they have in mind for this point-and-click game.
As a demonstration of the type of experience THE BROTHERHOOD wants to create (as if, after Stasis they have anything to prove!) they have released CAYNE – a free, point-and-click, isometric adventure game set in the STASIS universe.
