Whispering Willows Gameplay Trailer and Screens – March 27, 2014

In Whispering Willows, players step into the shoes of young Elena Elkhorn as she searches for her missing father against challenging odds, working through unconventional puzzles and bypassing otherworldly obstacles.

She must harness the powers of her heritage and utilize astral projection and other ethereal abilities to find her father before he, too, becomes lost to the hopeless morass of the Willows estate. She will fly through the air, squeeze through cracks no mortal could fit through, manipulate time to her will, freeze objects and harness the power of light to ward off evil spirits in the mansion.

The game has already gained the following accolades and achievements:

  • SIGC (Seattle Indie Gaming Competition) – Winner 2014
  • OUYA CREATE Game Jam – Winner 2013 for “Most Immersive,” finalist for “Grand Prize,” and finalist for “Best Visuals”
  • Captivate Conference Game Design Competition – Finalist 2013
  • Successful Kickstarter – Earned over $20,000 with 750 backers
  • Cerebral Indie Developer Grant – Winner 2013

Whispering Willows will be released in Q2 2014 for OUYA, PC, Mac and Linux.

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.
