Discrepant a dystopic mystery sci-fi adventure game set in the strange town of New Haven. From awaking to the rumblings of a distant explosions, to the shocking screams of a man falling to his death right outside your house, you are thrust into the middle of a world where things are just not quite right. Weaving your way through the disconcerting situations and uncomfortable environments, you seek answers. The anxious and confused wireless voice of Margaret, claiming to be your wife and seemingly just as lost, is your only link to sanity, your only guide to unraveling why the world is falling apart.
Ever hour of every day the Fixers roam the streets, cleaning up things that don't belong. And it seems you don't belong. You have but one hour to find the safety of the Transition Room, otherwise it all starts over and you are back at square one. And just how many times have you been trying this?
Discrepant is set in the genre of movies like Dark City, Donnie Darko and Thirteenth Floor.
The big news is that we have decided to complete the game in full prior to early access. That means Part 1 and Part 2 are being combined. This will add a few months to the development schedule but after much debate this what we think is best for the game and the players. The plot is interesting enough that we really feel it needs to be told in one story to get the full effect. Breaking it up was always a compromise to the story telling and driven by logistics and schedule. In the end the story telling has prevailed! We don't want to leave players hanging waiting for part 2, and feel the extra investment of time and resources is worth it. It only took a few months to combine chapter 1 and 2 earlier this year, and we think only a few more to complete the story, So to heck with it.. let's do it! :-)
Just means some new and possibly unexpected teasers and screenshots may emerge in the July newsletter - so look out for that :-) Also means our final delivery is now end FY17 for early access.

Not too much to show this month other than some clips from a space scene. Not going to say much more on this at this point, and so no commentary will be attached to them.. but hopefully they are interesting and may answer a question or two?
