Our difficult "second album" kind of project is out. Today! All art was done by me, as usual. You can check the free demo on our website, watch the trailer, see screenshots.. read about all the extra stuff. And there's tons of it! This time we offer Collector's Edition and super-special Physical Limited Edition as well. Learn more at MoaCube :heart:

Solstice is a fantasy mystery thriller about small personal disasters that can turn into great catastrophes. Set in the middle of an icy desert, it features a varied (in many ways) cast of colourful characters. And a hidden mystery for you to solve. Also - lots of great humour and deep emotions, written by our awesome writing duo. Remember that if you decide to buy the game - all the money go directly to us. We're a small indie studio, just 4-5 people. So basically thanks to you, since 2011, we can still make games. What I mean by that - you're awesome!


Here's our poster!

And visit some locations:

The game is an interactive crime fiction with visual novel gameplay (meaning your decisions matter and shape the story, a LOT!). Can't say much more at this point without spoiling the story, but we think it's a pretty exciting experience.

What makes the game different from other titles, I think, are our characters. We went for variety and interesting backstories. So, no general cliches. We actually have older, mature people in game and some relationships are pretty complex. Influencing them shapes the story as well, sometimes to a pretty big extent - check the screenshots above and in the link below.

More info at MoaCube :heart:


Cheers, guys!

Guys, we finally decided to try get Cinders, our first game (with my art) on Steam. As some of you know, we are not a big studio, but rather a bunch of friends who make indie games and we would really, really appreciate your vote if you have a Steam account. The game has already been published in 2012, so it's not one of those early-access titles that never get to be finished. You can also try a free demo on our website. It's available for Pc & Mac.



Here's the Greenlight link (or just click on the picture above): Cinders on Steam!

Thanks!
:heart:

As for other news: Solstice pre-orders (our next, upcoming game) are still open! It's a fantasy mystery game, and it is, of course, going to be awesome ;) All art was done by me, as usual. The preview build, which you can access instantly after supporting us, features around 2-3 hours of the game's beginning.

The whole game takes place in a city in the middle of an icy desert, pretty much cut off from the world. The city itself is surprisingly warm and seems to have its own micro-climate.

Basically the game is an interactive crime fiction with visual novel gameplay (meaning your decisions matter and shape the story). Can't say much more at this point without spoiling the story, but we think it's turning out to be pretty exciting.

We're working with Tom on a new game. It's still pretty early in development, but I wanted to show you some bits from it.

As for some other news.. I'm always behind most gadgets / social networks. But pretty recently I got a phone with Android and Instagram (yeah, I know, better late then never, even if it's not as "hip" now, as it used to be), and I started posting some random, everyday stuff. Including some sketches, cat, food etc. Since I'm really crap at posting more personal stuff on the web (I keep forgetting), this is probably one place where you can have some sneak peek into it. Even if it's lame.

Bookmark it especially if you're into seeing some more art wips from me, as I tend to forget to post any of those, and it takes me ages to find time to finish them. Here's the link to my profile: instagram.com/vinegaria/

Do you use it as well? If so, let me know what your profile is. And feel free to add me there, it'll make me happy! :heart:

Cheers, guys. Also all the best in the New Year (told you I'm behind with everything)!

Our first game as MoaCube is finally out!

It's our fairytale-inspired visual novel, ditching the passive protagonist and banal morals of the original story in sake of a more serious approach. You get to actually re-write the story of Cinderella and shape it in any way you want! We're really happy how it turned out and I hope you'll give it a try and like it too :heart:

On my blog there's some more info: screenshots and thoughts about it: vinegaria.com/cinders-is-out/

I'd also like to add I'm really grateful that two of Cinders' graphics you see above got Daily Deviations. Thanks, guys! :hug:

Here is the game's website and download links for those looking for a quick shortcut: moacube.com/games/cinders/

Free demo is available for both PC & Mac. :salute:
