Newsletter #21 — October 2020

Hello everyone!

This month, we released not one, but two games on the Nintendo Switch!
We also have a couple of nice announcements coming up, so please, read on.

Along the Edge + Seers Isle: Double feature!

Along the Edge and Seers Isle joined Across the Grooves on the Nintendo eshop on October 15th!

The team is really thrilled to finally have our older games available on the Nintendo Switch, which, we believe, is a great medium to enjoy them. You can now immerse yourself in our stories on the go or from the comfort of your favorite reading nook.

We received a fresh round of great critiques for the occasion. Here comes a selection of noteworthy quotes and evaluations:

A visual novel that stands shoulder to shoulder with the giants of the genre, Along the Edge is a fantastic and fantastical story that’s delivered eloquently and masterfully. 9/10.” Sean Davies, Along the Edge Review – A Beautiful, Mature & Engrossing Tale, Finger Guns.

“I could recommend Seers Isle to any lover of story and European myths and legends. If you enjoyed Across the Grooves or other visual novels such as Cinders and Doki Doki Literature Club, I would recommend giving Seers Isle a chance. 9/10″, Lainey Penzer, Seers Isle Review, Bonus Stage.

An online version is also available here for subscribers: “Nova-box, le français qui plie le game des jeux vidéo narratifs” (in French).


Paris Games Week / Games “Made in France”

What have we been up to?

Well, as you can see, we’ve kept ourselves quite busy. We’ve also started working on our next title, currently in the pre-production phase, which means lots of designing and budget–crunching, but also some new visual art. It’s way too early to talk in detail about this new project, but let us share one of the first concept arts with you, hoping it will catch your eyes and your curiosity.

Also, we welcomed our new art intern, Julie Vidal, earlier this month. You can check out her impressive portfolio on ArtStation.

Please note that our communications might be a bit more infrequent for a while, until we’re ready to properly unveil the ins and outs of our next endeavor.


That’s all for now, see you next time!

Seers Isle, Along the Edge, and Across the Grooves are available on Steam and (among other select digital resellers).
