Lethe Episode One Teasers and ScreensMarch 25, 2014

You are an ordinary journalist investigating an isolated island where some sort of disaster has occurred.

You discover an unknown substance that renders you psychokinetic. But there is a price.

This ability saps your life-energy. Ironically, you must ingest more of the substance in order to survive, even though it’s poisoning you.

But you have another problem: you find that you’re not alone on the island. Whoever or whatever is there is likely not friendly. Some days, you just can’t win…

Lethe will be episodic, but each episode will stand on its own. A release date for Episode One is TBD.

~Creative physics-based supernatural gameplay
~Dynamic interaction mechanics. Move, smash, explode or even set things on fire and alter gravity in real time
~Run, hide, use your powers and the environment in order to survive
~Explore experience and be immersed while you unveil the secrets of a unique ’20s style steam-punk world

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.
