INTERPOINT is our first project, the universe of which we came up with back in 2016
At first, we were inspired by various indie games and decided to create our horror game. We tried many options, scenarios, settings for our future game; however, we came to something concrete only a year later. At that time, only two people were involved in the development. The first is the creator of custom maps for Portal 2 and CS:GO, and the second - is a scriptwriter who came up with the INTERPOINT universe.
Serious work on the project began at the end of 2017 when we finally decided on the general conceptual and gameplay elements, and "puzzle" has already become the primary genre. At the same time, we came up with the Photon Gun. A little later, a 3D artist came to our team. The three of us wanted to finish INTERPOINT by the end of 2019 and launch the Alpha in the spring to raise funds for further development. We had no money, and the fate of the project depended on this Alpha. However, the Alpha version of the game turned out to be worse than we had planned. Despite this, we decided to show it to people.
Everything needs to be changed
Continuing to work on Alpha, which we liked less and less, we concluded that everything needs to be changed. Our approach to development did not give the results we expected, and the only right decision was to rethink the project and our approach to its development altogether.
Over the past 1.5 years, our three-person team has reimagined every part of the game and re-created it. We redesigned all levels, many aspects of the gameplay, puzzles, change the visual style and effects, and most of the plot to make INTERPOINT better and more interesting.
We are very inspired by the story and universe that we have come up with around this game, and we will do our best to realize it in the best possible way. Thank you for believing in us.
We are currently working on a major story update (Episodes 1-3) due in January 2021. Add the game to your wishlist, so you don't miss it!
This story update will be the last one in Early Access, and by the end of 2021, we plan to release the full version of the game, which will include six episodes. You can purchase the game right now if you want to support the development of INTERPOINT.
