Melbourne, Australia – March 24, 2020 — Fellow Traveller and Jump Over the Age are thrilled to announce that In Other Waters will launch for PC, Mac, and Nintendo Switch on April 3rd, 2020. Preorders for the Nintendo Switch version of In Other Waters start today, March 24, 2020. In Other Waters costs $14.99 USD. There is a 10% discount for pre-orders that runs now through launch week until April 10.

In Other Waters is a unique narrative adventure that puts players in the role of an AI assistant revealing the mysteries of the turquoise depths of an alien ocean. Xenobiologist Ellery Vas is searching for her missing partner on the planet Gliese 677Cc. Equipped with a malfunctioning dive suit possessed by a strange AI unit, Ellery discovers extraterrestrial life and an ocean full of secrets.

In Other Waters, the 2019 IndieCade Europe Jury Prix award winner, is sci-fi without soldiers and violence focusing instead on wonder and exploration, fear and vulnerability, and the relationship between a long-dormant AI and its human pilot. The relationship between the AI and the operator unfolds over an impactful narrative uniquely interpreted by the player. The depths of Gliese 677Cc contain many secrets. For life to continue, it must change. What will you discover as you track, sample and learn about life inside this alien ocean?

Welcome to the Warm Embrace of The Church in the Darkness on Nintendo Switch!

Melbourne, Australia, August 2, 2019 — Fellow Traveller and Paranoid Productions are thrilled to announce their game of infiltrating cults, The Church in the Darkness, is now available for PC, Mac, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch! Your nephew has run away to South America and joined the Collective Justice Mission. It is up to you to infiltrate their compound, learn the truth and save him before he is lost to the cult forever!

“With The Church in the Darkness, we wanted to make a game you could replay both for gameplay but also for story, so we use procedural generation to change up the story every time you play. The game’s cult leaders may have good intentions or may be all the way apocalyptic, it’s up to you to figure it out. This leads to multiple endings depending on the players gameplay choices and narrative choices.” – Richard Rouse III, Paranoid Productions Creative Director.

At launch, people investigating the cult will receive a 20% discount for one week to help find the truth behind the Collective Justice Mission. The discount is available for both the Standard and True Believer Special Editions; the former gets you a copy of The Church in the Darkness, while True Believers will receive the game, the Official Soundtrack and a set of special behind-the-scenes videos about the making of the game. The Standard Edition retails for $19.95 USD and the True Believer Special Edition retails for $29.95 USD. The True Believer Special Edition is only available for PC and can be purchased via Steam, Humble, GOG, and Itch.

Players are challenged to step into the shoes of ex-cop Vic as they infiltrate the South American compound of Freedom Town in a search of their nephew. Run by Rebecca and Isaac Walker, it’s up to the player to unearth their motivations, their plans, with the cult experience changing with every playthrough. Is the commune simply idealists looking to live in a socialist utopia, or is there something more sinister at hand?

It’s up to the player to sneak into the compound undetected, uncover the truth by finding and chatting with cult members, search cabins to unearth literature about the group, and finally locate Alex, the nephew.

The Church in the Darkness highlights the mystery surrounding cults, and how they are not always what they seem. There are multiple endings for each scenario and what ending you get will be influenced by the player’s stealthy or aggressive gameplay.
