Turkish indie game developer company Nowhere Studios announced today the new release date of Monochroma, a dystopian cinematic puzzle platformer. The downloadable title will make its debut on Windows PC, Mac and Linux via game distribution service Steam in April 2014, after a couple of delays.
Monochroma takes place in the 1950s, and follows the story of two brothers who become witnesses of a horrible crime done by members of an evil corporation. After the start of the game, the younger boy gets injured due to an accident and must get help from his older sibling. To solve the puzzles, they must separate in some occasions. The older brother must temporarily look for safe places for his younger brother to be at while completing the puzzles.
“Monochroma mixes the paranoia and dreading forbode of the 1950’s with the recent geopolitical landscape of protest, upheavals and revolutions, and builds an alternate universe that places gameplay, atmosphere and narrative above everything else,” said Burak Tezateşer, Executive Producer of the game. “We’ve been inspired by a mix of influences, from classic video games from our childhood including Abe’s Oddysee and Heart of Darkness, to classic tales such as Red Riding Hood and the Wizard of Oz and the urban architecture of the 20th century”.
The childhood memories of the game developers after moving to urban Istanbul served as inspiration for the story of this game.
