Austrian indie developer Zeppelin Studio has announced that its award-winning PC game Schein will be launched DRM-free on July 14, 2014.

Schein is a challenging puzzle platformer that tells the story of a desperate man who ventures forth into the mystical swamp in search of his missing son. As he gets lost in the darkness, a wisp named Irrlicht appears and offers him help, guidance, and its magical power: a light that changes the world.

Light is the key to everything: you’ll use it to defeat deadly beasts, solve tricky puzzles and uncover hidden paths through the murky swamp.

You will use this mighty power and your wits to unveil new dimensions, defeat deadly beasts, solve tricky puzzles and uncover hidden paths through the murky swamp.

What began as a student project in early 2011 has since evolved into a promising startup’s first effort. Schein has been compared to Limbo and Braid.

A Greenlight campaign is in progress. A demo of the game can be downloaded here.

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.
