Cosmo D Studios has announced that its IGF-nominated first-person adventure title, Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1, is headed to Steam (Windows, Mac & Linux) on May 15th, priced $9.99 – with a 10% discount available at launch.
Set in the same universe as the critically-acclaimed The Norwood Suite and Off-Peak, Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1 will see players visit the unforgettable street corner of July Avenue and Yam Street, as they plot to obtain a saxophone from longtime pizza-maker (and former saxophonist) Caetano Grosso. This instrumental pursuit will set off a chain of events across the neighbourhood, taking players deep into the hidden worlds and private lives of the people living there.
Filled with memorable characters, secrets and hidden agendas, this open-ended locale is rife for exploration – players will make pizzas, take photos, push buttons, open drawers they’re not supposed to – all while losing themselves in an atmospheric score that’s directly integrated into the game world.
An acclaimed cellist, Cosmo D composed the unique soundtrack for Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1, which will also be available at launch, either separately, priced $6.99 or as a Deluxe Bundle (Game + Soundtrack) for $12.99.
Volume 1: Caetano’s Slice is the first game of many in the anthology of Tales. While each ‘Volume’ is its own self-contained story and experience, taken together, they build towards the larger overarching narrative of what’s really going on at the corner of July Avenue and Yam Street and what role you ultimately play in its fate.
Head over to the Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1 Steam store page to get the low down, before the game releases on May 15th.
