After getting lost in the Iranian Desert you wonder upon a strange compound. Exhausted and dying of thrust this is a welcome site. It seems you are All Alone and all you find is a Dictaphone, Water and a strange book titled the "Word of Cyrus" No combat just exploration with a gripping story and atmosphere to give you a chill even in the heat.

OK Some people might get confused but I have made some bullet points about the project

Mainly All Alone is a Love letter to Chinese room for making Dear Esther which I Loved and I want more games like it but since a lot of companies aren’t willing to take the risks that Dear Esther experimented with I want to give it a shot while improving my skills as a game designer.

  • An experiment in minimalism in
    video games- Only with 3 colours and simple geometric shapes are players
    able to understand the environment around them and are able to navigate in
    a minimal environment
  • Power of imagination- it is
    easier to scare yourself can I create a tense environment in a less
    graphical game or have audiences demand for greater quality graphics
    dulled Peoples imagination?
  • No fighting- is there an
    audience for experience only games? No real game play mechanics just the
    exploration of an environment and a story to go with it.
  • Writing- Dear Esther had
    brilliant writing and a varying story so I want to see if it is possible
    to use a more structured story without giving away the secret.

I'm still looking for people to help out in any way they can especially
musicians.

The color and art is nice, but it the lack of action and excitement does not appeal to me. However, I think the whole scare thing with only back story like Dear Esther and Portal is really cool and more games should use it. This would be awesome if it only had some killing.

I think you really have something here. I would up the color count to 5 and see how that works out, but more accented colors like tan or gray. I really like how things just appear. Your sound design is solid, too.

How about a different color for sand, red is a little too Deep. though it makes sense in your context

Awesome style. It hurts my eyes a bit at some points, but I'm sure you can fix that.

Thanks for the feedback I appreciate it. I don't want to be responsible for causing mass seizers or do I? Thanks for everyone following so early on. I hope to realise this in time for Halloween but no promise as I am in my final year of Uni.
