Father's Island combines elements of open world exploring, adventure and ingame visual / audio / FMV storytelling into a unique game experience with more action and interaction than usual "walking simulators", but in a calm pace that builds up a stage of psychological horrors with it's storytelling elements.
Version 2.0 introduces DirectX 11, PBR, new videos and new storylines.
Let`s start off with some basic news.
While my 10th novel will launch on Tuesday (sorry folks, still German only), some work has been done on "Into the Ice".

In a nutshell, it makes your game credible. Even if the rest sucks or the game doesn`t become what you have envisioned (which happened to us, too, several times), you still have a redeeming factor there. And if your game is great, it becomes even better.
your friendly crazy Australian Austrian developers.
