Publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer Chaosmonger Studio have invited us all behind the scenes of the upcoming point-and-click adventure game, ENCODYA, with Chief Developer Nicola Piovesan. ENCODYA brings players to the dystopian near-future of Neo-Berlin, where a young orphan girl named Tina teams up with a hulking mass of metal and wiring named SAM-53 to bring light and happiness back to the hellish cyberpunk landscape of 2062.
In this new featurette, Piovesan takes players behind the scenes and dives into the little details that truly bring the world of Neo-Berlin to life. A point-and-click adventure game succeeds when it offers a believable fantasy world for players to explore and discover, and as Piovesan explains in the video, ensuring each element of the game lends itself to the experience is key to doing so.
From the creation of completely original billboards and advertising jingles to simple things like the dialogue between NPCs on the street, Piovesan takes viewers through the creation process, providing developer insight into how creating an authentic world is possible with a strong narrative and plenty of subtle background detail.
Key Features of ENCODYA:
- Entirely Original Soundtrack and Audio: Not only will players enjoy a unique, custom soundtrack, but everything from the character dialogue to the advertising jingles are self-produced audio tracks, not simply sound bites from an audio-library
- A Robust Script: To really bring the world of ENCODYA to life, more than 4,000 lines of dialogue provide an engaging and immersive cinematic experience
- This Puzzle Was Different Last Time…: Puzzle randomization adds replay value and a fresh challenge for players looking to enjoy multiple trips to Neo-Berlin
- A Full Cast of Characters: With 34 distinct NPCs, the dystopian world of Neo-Berlin is brought to life with a whole host of fully-realized individuals
ENCODYA will be available on Windows PC, Mac, and Linux platforms via Steam, GOG and ENCODYA.com on the 26th of January. Keep up to date with ENCODYA by following the game on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
