What a creepy-looking little boy...
Kickstarter-funded Calm Waters is a 2D point-and-click thriller-mystery-horror-adventure from one-person developer Tayanna Studios. It's been created with Unity and Chris Burton's Adventure Creator over the course of six years.
The game features intriguing characters, an immersive story full of twists and turns, an atmospheric soundtrack and professional voice actors.
Having lost his wife three years earlier, Pete Taylor decides to go abroad on a holiday. After arriving at a coastal town, he notices that locals are disappearing. These disappearances seem tied to a mysterious island from which blood-curdling screams can be heard.
Pete decides to investigate. With Michelle, a local journalist; and Glenn, a waiter who's frightened but up for an adventure, he goes about trying to discover what's happening and solve the mystery.
Are the local residents hiding something? Does the island hold some kind of dreadful secret? You'll just have to play the game to find out.
Calm Waters is to be released April 13, 2017, on Windows, Mac and Linux, followed by Android and hopefully iOS.
