We are Playful Robot, a tiny games development studio in Vitoria, Spain. Pleased to meet you!
What type of game is True Josephine?
True Josephine is basically an adventure game: 2D, point&click, 3rd person... Just as 90s adventure games such as Monkey Island and many others.
It also includes puzzles and minigames, in the style of hidden object games such as New York Mysteries or House of 1000 Doors...
But True Josephine's concept is sooo different, that its gameplay doubtlessly comes with a twist!
What's special about True Josephine?
Josephine is a researcher in Philology, focused on European 19th Century Poetry. That sounds so serious, uh? No way! And here comes the fun part: her skills exceed strictly scientific methods.
Just as Goethe's Faust, Josephine knows that all the scientific instrumental and dogmas won't do the job. So she must keep her mind open to poetic sensibility, as well as boost her soul's ability for magic, in order to go beyond the limits of poetry and really achieve her knowledge goals.
We are planning True Josephine as our first indie game, so we'll probably need some crowdfunding to get started.
We'd like to launch a Kickstarter campaign at some point during 2018, once our work plan allows us to get focused on this project exclusively.
Thanks and see you soon!
Keep your mind open to poetic sensibility, go beyond the limits of poetry and really achieve your knowledge goals!
