Dark Fun Adventure Game A NEAR DAWN (Prologue) is out on Android and Steam!



The Prologue to our dark humorous psychological thriller A Near Dawn is has been released on Steam and Google Play (that's right, there is now an Android version)! You can download A Near Dawn: Prologue on Windows, Mac, Linux, or Android on these websites, or all of them on Itch.io!

If you haven't checked it out yet, perhaps you should - one particularly clever reviewer said that it was "A funny, charming and creepy adventure with a great sense of style" in his review.

We are so proud of how this project has come together, and there is still so much we would like to do with it. That is why we are going to be launching a KickStarter campaign on October 24th to help get support to produce the full game. You can take a peek at our campaign proposal, we are still working on it a bit, but it mostly feels right.

As we mentioned earlier, A Near Dawn is inspired by traditional Point & Click Adventure games such as the Broken Sword, Blackwell, and Ace Attorney series, as well as darker stories like Steins;Gate and even Twin Peaks. It proudly inherits some of their charm, wit and humor.

The Prologue introduces some of our key characters and certain things you can expect from this story. If you give A Near Dawn a try, do reach out to us (Twitter | Instagram) and let us know what you think. And we would love to hear your feedback about our upcoming campaign!

Dark humorous psychological thriller A NEAR DAWN (Prologue) is out!


The Prologue to our dark humorous psychological thriller A Near Dawn is finally out! You can Download and Play it on Itch.io now!

It has been quite an adventure wrapping things up and getting ready for this release. Now that it's out in the world, we have been very happy with the response we've been getting - for instance, Alpha Beta Gamer wrote an astounding review for it, and everyone that has gotten in touch with us had some positive things to say. We are pretty ambitious with this project, and are hoping to gear up our KickStarter on October 24th to help get support for it! If you have a chance, take a look at our proposed campaign and let us know if we missed anything or if there is something we could improve on.



A Near Dawn is greatly inspired by traditional Point & Click Adventure games such as the Broken Sword, Blackwell, and Ace Attorney series, as well as darker stories like Steins;Gate and even Twin Peaks. It proudly inherits some of their charm, wit and humor.

You find yourself in the shoes of a Seattle attorney who is trying to do the right thing for his friends, despite having an inexplicable darkness inside of him - you will decide whether to unleash this darkness with the choices you make, which will greatly affect your relationships with other characters in the story. What begins seemingly as a slam dunk case for your boss's struggling firm spirals into a dark web of conspiracy that will pit you against some of the vilest human beings imaginable. You can read some more input from the creator (Leonid Pilchin) on his blog here.

The Prologue introduces some of our key characters and certain things to expect. If you give A Near Dawn a try, do reach out to us (Twitter | Instagram) and let us know what you think. Also, have a peek at our upcoming campaign! We would love to hear your feedback!

A NEAR DAWN ~ Announcement Trailer!



Without further ado, we are excited to present the A Near Dawn announcement trailer:


A Near Dawn is a multi faceted psychological adventure that aims to capture different sides to your world as you investigate the darkness that lies beneath its surface. There are mysteries to be solved and the things you do and say will affect how others look at you, even how you look at yourself. We are making great progress in putting together the Prologue to the first installment, which will be available for free download. And we hope to eventually bring this project to KickStarter to help fund the production. Wish us luck!

A Near Dawn is an adventure game inside a visual novel interface - it features puzzles, dynamic decisions, and multiple endings. You will be in control of your character’s actions at every turn. You will explore the environment and speak to other characters to learn about what needs to be done.
