Father´s Island is a mystical, surreal crime-solving visual novel in a 3D open world, where the player has to solve the mistery of his own wrongful conviction 5 years earlier. In the player character´s words: I am John Richards, and I am innocent. I spent the last years in the Providence state prison for a crime I hadn´t comitted. Armed robbery and assault, christmas eve 2009, a seven eleven just outside the town where I used to live. Hell, I was a highschool teacher then, and yeah, I didn´t earn much, but robbery? No fucking way. I spent the night 80 miles away in my cabin, my private retreat for holidays, working on exams and exercices for my pupils. Alone. A pretty bad Alibi, especially as they had me on tape. Not only my face, clearly visible, hard to mistake for another ones, they had also my DNA all over the place...

Post news Report RSS Breaking: Week-long Sale on Steam!

No, this one is not for grabbing your attention and begging you to vote for us in this years IOTY. We believe that, if you like our game, you already did or you are doing it right now (hit the button!).

Let's start with an overview what has happened in the last three patches:

  • Reduced memory footprint by 340MB total
  • Replaced the entire post-process shader pipeline
  • Introduced lens flare, virtual global illumination, adaptive bloom and grading
  • Improved performance by up to 250% depending on system
  • added 3 puzzles
  • added 2 new encounters
  • added 5 new messages
  • added 1 new piece of soudntrack
  • fixed 98 minor issues
  • Fixes the Save / Load system

So, today it looks like that:

and runs with double the frame rate you had when we released it. Fraps and OBS still drain performance, but an average gaming rig should run it with solid 30+ FPS and 50 - 60 in most non-critical areas. Users with high-end machines report 90+ on 4k, which is quite cool.

So, there is no reason left why you shouldn't get the game - except you hate the genre, then I am just wondering why you are still reading here.

For all others, we have prepared a week long deal that allows you to get Father's Island dirt-cheap:
