Innovative Sci-Fi Narrative Exploration Game, Event[0], Launching on PC and Mac in September

July 14, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Stranded in Space with Only an Unstable AI Computer for Company, Players Must Build a Relationship through Text Conversations to Survive and Return to Earth

Unknown

PARIS – July 13, 2016 – IN SPACE, NO ONE CAN HEAR YOU TYPE… Event[0], the award-winning sci-fi narrative exploration game in which players must build a relationship with a lonely spaceship computer to get home, is coming to Windows PC and Mac this September via Steam and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle. A new teaser trailer for the game that poses the question, “What would you say to a computer if your life depended on it?” can be viewed at event0game.com.

The indie game first drew attention as a concept demo that won multiple indie gaming awards, including Innovation at BIG 2015 and Student Award winner at EIGD 2014. The first-person narrative exploration game transports players to the desolated spacecraft, Nautilus. As a player, your only companion is an insecure AI entity named Kaizen with whom you interact by typing messages on computer terminals throughout the ship. The game’s multi-layered story emerges organically as players communicate with Kaizen, freely explore 3D environments, gather information and solve hacking puzzles.

Set in a retrofuture inspired by 2001: A Space Odyssey, Solaris and Brave New World, Event[0] is a game about building a personal relationship with a machine using natural language. Kaizen can procedurally generate over two million lines of dialog and the AI entity has a strong personality influenced by human input. Players communicate by typing messages into a computer, and Kaizen responds. As in any relationship, there can be gratitude, disappointment or jealousy, and Kaizen reacts differently depending on its mood. By working through the fears and anxieties of your virtual companion you can ultimately find your way back to Earth—while unraveling the cryptic history of the ship and the 1980s society from which it emerged.

Event[0] began as a six-month student project before evolving into a full title under the auspices of Ocelot Society, which was founded by key members of the team. The game is backed by France’s CNC public arts organization and by the Indie Fund, a funding source for independent developers launched as an alternative to traditional publisher models.

“Event[0] takes me back to the kind of magic I felt playing Zork as a kid,” said Ron Carmel, Co-Founder of Indie Fund and Co-Creator of World of Goo. “There are moments where I can suspend disbelief and feel like I’m actually having a conversation with an advanced AI, probing its inner workings with words.”

The game is created using Unity Engine 5 and utilizes physics-based rendering and advanced lighting techniques to create richly detailed environments inside and outside the ship (players can leave the ship for breathtakingly scary spacewalks). Eschewing a traditional game score, all sound, including incidental music, comes from items in the environment. The ship is essentially the AI computer’s body, and reacts to Kaizen’s mood by making different sounds—which can give the player valuable clues.

“Event[0] is like our AI child: over the past two years it has grown from a vibrant but limited concept into a fully realized narrative exploration game,” said Léonard Carpentier, Co-founder and CEO of Ocelot Society. “Our team has created an evocative world for players to explore and Kaizen can’t wait to find new humans to become best friends with!”

More information on Event[0] will be released in the coming weeks if Kaizen can be convinced to cooperate.

About Ocelot Society
Founded in 2015 by a group of young indie developers, Ocelot Society is a Paris-based game creation studio seeking new ways to play. The studio’s first game, the award-winning AI relationship-based narrative exploration game, Event[0], will be released in September 2016 for PC and Mac.

About Indie Fund
Indie Fund is a funding source for independent developers, created by a group of successful indies looking to encourage the next wave of game developers. It was established as a serious alternative to the traditional publisher funding model. Our aim is to support the growth of games as a medium by helping indie developers get (and stay) financially independent. For more information, visit indie-fund.com.

KOEI TECMO AMERICA REVEALS ACTION-PACKED ONLINE FEATURES FOR ATTACK ON TITAN

Allowing for Up to Four Players, Scout Mode Summons the Scout Regiment to Unleash Humanity’s Wrath

Burlingame, Calif. — July 6, 2016 — KOEI TECMO America today revealed the multiplayer Scout Mode as well as additional gameplay mechanics available in Attack on Titan, the titanic action game based on the worldwide anime hit by the same name, alongside three new character trailers and a new gameplay video highlighting the game’s Decisive Battle Signal system. Attack on Titan will release on August 30 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and digitally for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®Vita handheld system and Windows PC via Steam®.

The high-octane Scout Mode allows players to recruit up to three companions online to venture outside the wall and face the eerily human-like Titans together. Starting at the camp, team members are able to upgrade their gear, change their costumes and prepare resources for an upcoming onslaught. The leader of the group is able to choose from a wide selection of missions taking place across a variety of different stages, including the Forest of Giant Trees, the Ruined Town, a Farm Village and even the Stohess District. These missions, separate from the main campaign, offer further action-packed events to face as a team.

Throughout Attack on Titan players will have the opportunity to upgrade their titan-slaying gear. The Omni-Directional Mobility Gear, blades, and scabbard can be enhanced at the camp with materials found from slaying Titans on single player and multiplayer missions. Enhancements to the Omni-Directional Mobility Gear include improved anchors, allowing them to attach on to Titans from a greater distance and at faster speeds. Blades can be sharpened, as well as improved to become longer and more durable, with scabbard upgrades allowing additional blades and gas canisters to be carried. It is important for players to enhance their equipment to perform more effectively on the battlefield.

KOEI TECMO America released a new gameplay video highlighting the Decisive Battle Signal. Rescuing regiment members in danger and slaying Titans will fill up the Decisive Battle Meter which, once used, calls everyone in the player’s vicinity to their side to deal a great amount of damage. When activated their attack damage will be heightened, with the blunting of blades and depletion of gas momentarily stopped.

Beloved and Multi-Million Selling Adventure Series Returns in Eagerly Awaited New Game for PS4, Xbox One, PC & Mac

Unknown

PARIS – MAY 23, 2016 – Today, game publisher Microïds announced that it plans to release Syberia 3, the latest installment of the cult adventure game saga from Benoit Sokal, for Playstation®4, Xbox One, PC and Mac worldwide on December 1, 2016. With over three million copies sold and a Metacritic rating of 80+, Syberia is one of the most revered adventure series of all time. For the long-awaited third iteration of the fabled franchise, author and artistic director Benoit Sokal has created an exciting new adventure for heroine Kate Walker and her companions.

The game can be glimpsed in new screens released today by Microïds and Benoit Sokal, and in the game’s new introductory video entitled “Kate Walker’s New Journey”:

In the video, Benoit Sokal and members of the development team unveil new aspects of the Syberia saga’s return. The short documentary takes viewers behind the scenes of the game’s production and shows several sequences of the actual game itself. Though some of the visual, audio and voice rendering are still works in progress that may yet be altered, the team wanted to share with the community a first glimpse of the title’s cinematic scope. Another video, to be released soon, will focus on important aspects of the world of Syberia, with particular emphasis on Kate Walker’s new journey.

Syberia 3 begins with Kate Walker adrift on a makeshift craft. Fortunately, a caravan of the Youkol people, whom she encountered in Syberia 2, finds her before her life slips away. Determined to evade their common enemies, Kate decides to help the nomads fulfill the oddest of their ancestral traditions: accompanying the transhumance of the snow ostriches to the holy steppes where they can reproduce. The journey unfolds through scenery that is by turn enchanting and laid to waste, where the young woman will experience her most dangerous and wonderful adventures, with her pursuers always right behind her…

With cinematic scope, unforgettable characters, and sweeping story, Syberia 3 is the most technically advanced and visually spectacular Syberia game to date. The game’s rich and interactive score is created by award-winning composer Inon Zur. Rendered in full 3D for the first time ever, Syberia 3 has been developed for the PS4 and Xbox One consoles as well as PC and Mac from its inception.

Managed by its creator Elliot Grassiano, Microïds keeps getting stronger and widens its large game catalogue with genres as varied as adventure, management, simulation and action.

Besides its heroes and heroines from original creations (Kate Walker from “Syberia”, Victoria Mc Pherson from “Still Life”…), Microïds also creates new titles including other characters or authors from other media (comic books, cinema, literature…) such as Garfield or Agatha Christie. Microïds is currently developing Syberia 3 scheduled for 2016, responding to many fans of this cult adventure game series (more than three million sold) who have been waiting for more than ten years.
