Ars Fabulae is a reflection on power of creative expression, told through a mixture of video game genres. Exploring an old theatre, you will be able to enter performances, replaying events of the past seen through the eye of an artist. Unveil the story hidden in the spectacles, where no detail is incidental.
When they were young, the Actress and the Director were full of dreams and ambitions. Decades later, the Actress returns to the threatre, to once more become the performer, the audience and the muse.
The spectacles, the letters, radio interviews - they are all meaningful, but will the Actress find what she's looking for? Attend the last show of a famous artist reflecting on his defining moments and your role in his life.
With each spectacle you will explore a new, incredible scenography fully painted in VR. Each performance tells the story of different characters, with individual gameplay mechanics and a unique conclusion. Be it a robot escaping a factory or a little, conceited musketeer - every role you assume is an outlet for a specific message. Press on, as seemingly unrelated plots start to come together, creating a bigger picture.
To separate the performances from the real world and stress their artistic nature, we decided to reach for new, creative methods of graphic design. The spectacle segments of the game are painted using virtual reality technology: exchanging traditional 3D modeling for painterly strokes and splatters granted us more expressive freedom in shaping the artistic vision of the Director.
Hello, indiedb! We're Punk Notion , a small team of developers and artists from Poland. We'd like to introduce Ars Fabulae, which marks the beginning of our long game development journey. But that's, perhaps, a story for another time...
Ars Fabulae is a nostalgic journey to the past, showing the power of creative expression, told through a mixture of video game genres. While exploring the desolate theatre as the Actress, you'll be able to put on masks and relive performances, replaying events of the past as seen by an artist. No detail here is put in by accident - everything comes together to form a whole, cohesive story.
While in the world of the performances, you'll explore unique and new scenographies, fully hand-painted in VR technology. This is what makes the distinction between the real world and the spectacles so clear - the theatre is made with traditional 3D models, while the performances are painted, making them much more expressive.
Each of the performances tells a story about different characters, with unique gameplay mechanics and a distinct conclusion. Whether you're exploring an abandoned factory as a small robot ready to escape or a little conceited musketeer, you'll receive pieces of a puzzle for you to put together into a cohesive story.
We are currently in development with Ars Fabulae and are expecting to release it in Q1/Q2 2020. You can follow our progress on facebook or instagram. You can also wishlist our game on steam.
Thanks for reading. Hope to see you again soon!
