Newsletter #28 — May 2023

Hello everyone!

It’s official, after three years in the making, we’re finally ready to release our next interactive graphic novel, End of Lines.

Continue reading for an abundance of details.

Coming Thursday, May 25th

Mark your calendars: End of Lines will be available worldwide on PC/Mac/Linux and Nintendo Switch via Steam, the Nintendo eshop, and a selection of trustworthy online retailers across the Internet on Thursday, May 25th.

In this new interactive graphic novel, you’ll be following a family trying to survive in a post climate meltdown Europe. To achieve that, you’ll have to manage their resources and the people who travel alongside them, while, of course, making choices that will shape their journey across the continent.

In other words, we decided to explore one of the possible outcomes of an important contemporary issue in this game. Perhaps the greatest challenge of our time.

We really hope it will resonate with you.

The game will be available for pre-order with a discount on the Nintendo eshop, starting May 8th. we have also scheduled a release discount over on the Steam Store (If you haven’t done so already, please be kind enough to add End of Lines to your wishlist — it really helps with discovery algorithms and will let you know when the game is out).

Here are some links to the stores:
Nintendo Switch eshop (Europe),
Nintendo Switch eshop (Americas),
Steam Store.

And for those who are wondering, well yes: the original soundtrack, which consists of nearly 2 hours of instrumental music and ambient sounds from the game, masterfully crafted by our friends Julien and Camille from Illustrason will be available as a DLC on Steam, as a downloadable album on Bandcamp, and on streaming platforms such as Spotify or Deezer.

Release party at la Librairie du Basilic in Bordeaux

The team will be at the Librairie du Basilic on Saturday, June 3rd from 2PM to 4PM (and possibly later). You’ll be able to test the game, and meet and greet us. We’re also planning a couple of surprises for the afternoon.

The Librarie du Basilic is a very nice place, specialized in speculative fiction and fantasy literature, with a great selection of books and lovely people who will happily point you towards your next favorite author.

And if you are itching to pay them a visit before the party, note that they’ve set up a demo of Seers Isle in the store. They also have some Steam keys for this game to sell from a limited run of beautiful ex libris we made back in 2018.

The address: Librairie du Basilic — 20 rue du Mirail, 33000 Bordeaux

What have we been up to?

Once again, I have to apologize for the lack of news these last few months, but as you may imagine, finishing the game has been quite a hectic endeavor for everyone involved, to say the least.

Still a lot to do before we cross the finishing line, but we’re definitely seeing the light at the end of the tunnel at last.

As always, let’s conclude with this month’s new illustration, the last you’ll get for End of Lines. Soon, we’ll be switching gears and we can’t wait to tease you about our upcoming interactive graphic novels.

That’s all for now, and we hope we’ll see you on release day!

Please consider adding End of Lines to your wishlist on Steam! (it helps make the game more visible at release).

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