We are pleased to introduce the 3rd project from Simon Mesnard : ‘Catyph: The Kunci Experiment’. It's a 1st person adventure game to be released in Summer 2014, and similar to our previous game ASA: A Space Adventure. In Catyph:TKE, a sci-fi oriented point & click, you start on a moon called Tytaah divided into several regions, where you'll face challenging puzzles in various environments.

It is not a direct sequel to ASA and doesn't require to know it already.

Catyph:TKE has once again been thought like an interactive story and exploration : it will feature prerendered graphics and CG cutscenes, to follow our initial short film 'Catyph'. Like in ASA, the storyline of the game will be developed for an immersive experience.
“You play in 2062 as an astronaut sent by Terra to explore the solar system in search for signs of intelligent life. After going through strange events, you finally land on Tytaah, a moon of planet Catyph. You quickly realise that a mechanism called the Kunci is the reason for your presence here, and a man of unknown identity asks you to make it work for him. You'll have to explore the moon and other places to gather more informations and understand the situation.”


Gameplay:
Catyph has a traditionnal point & click gameplay similar to the Myst series. It is created with the Visionaire Studio engine used by the Daedalic teams (Deponia). With the help of all data you collect, and the support of your AI, you will visit Tytaah and try to access all the regions of this moon. Your main mission : understanding what the Kunci is. All the game relies on exploration and discovery.
