Here we are, it’s the big day: Chronotopia is now officially live on Kickstarter!
Chronotopia is a dark rewriting of the fairytale Donkeyskin : the young princess lives a peaceful existence in her castle, enjoying her days with her best friend and confidant, Nahima. That is until her father, gone mad since the death of his beloved, decides he should wed the princess instead. Donkeyskin has to find a way to escape from this fate, but how? She doesn’t know it yet, but it’s the beginning of a long nightmare that will take her to the edge of madness.
Inspired by a wide range of influences (literature, anime, videogames), Chronotopia is a unique and more mature take on a forgotten fairytale that includes many twists and choices that affect the ending: Donkeyskin can either escape with her servant, become a fairy, or die a horrible death. Multiple times. It’s up to you to save…or doom her.
In a way, Chronotopia is an unlikely mix of all the projects Träumendes Mädchen had released up until now: the game goes back to the theme of the fairytale that doesn’t go as expected (Being Beauteous), with a young girl who has been conditioned and trapped in a vicious cycle (Ambre), gameplay and a world between life and death (Garden of Oblivion), as well as a diversified cast and nightmarish visions and scenes that are not recommended to claustrophobic people (Wounded by Words). Fortunately, I didn’t go as far as to put cows and aliens into the story XD. Anyway, I think there’s enough to satisfy our fans and the future of the team depends on you!
Chronotopia’s demo is available in English on itchio (PC/Mac/Linux). Don’t hesitate to tell us what you think and give a little bit of money to the campaign if you liked it :3.
