Aranyus: A Journey Begins is primarily the work of one person: indie developer Marius Popa. It’s the first of three games planned for Windows, Mac and Linux.


Another boring day at the office. On the road, headed back home. His watch reads 11:14 PM. Looks like he’ll arrive home earlier tonight. But something strange fills the air around him, he feels a cold shiver, and his newly repaired headlight seems to be malfunctioning. Out of nowhere a thick fog appears. He can no longer see his bike. He knows he must stop, but… Suddenly he hits something, and his body is thrown from the bike. The next thing he feels is the rough kiss of the hard ground. His eyes open again, but the sun seems too bright. He struggles and manages to stand up. Beside him lies his bike, rusting and half-buried in the sand. Around him, the ocean and the beach make him wonder if he’s still alive. Where is he? What is this place?!

A Kickstarter campaign is in progress until December 4, 2014. Please consider giving Aranyus: A Journey Begins your support!

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.
