Development of The Electric Adventures of Watt (TEAoW) has been announced by Called Shot LLC, creators of the open source game engine Ymir. It will be the flagship title for the indie studio, which is committed to openly-licensed game development.

TEAoW takes place on a dark, jagged planet where a war is in progress. Players must side with either light or darkness. Either way, the path will be rife with peril.

The planet has no atmosphere. Strange vining plants called Power Plants that live on radiation are the planet’s only organic life. They produce buds that store energy.

The city of Watt is full of light and innovation. Its citizens dwell in Illuminaria. They live peaceful lives under The Core, which hangs overhead and provides the Illuminarians with life-giving light.

Conversely, the Creep inhabit the planet’s darkest areas. These creatures hate the light and will stop at nothing to snuff it out.

TEAoW features challenging tactical team play; open license art/engine; fully moddable gaming; and a distributed game engine written in Erlang. You will take part in PvP combat, deal with environmental hazards and solve physics-enabled puzzles.

TEAoW is in the early stages of development. Called Shot is currently seeking funding to develop a multi-player demo. The game will be released for Windows, Mac and Linux under a Creative Commons license.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
