Toren will lead the player on an introspective and captivating journey of transformation and a struggle against time and mortality. It will feature dark fantasy storytelling in a world of symbolism.

You are Moonchild. Your destiny is to climb a tower called Toren, and in doing so, find your purpose.

As the story progresses, Moonchild will grow from infant to adult. As you ascend the tower, a Tree of Life encased within will grow with you, opening new areas to explore and offering learning experiences for each stage of life.

It won’t be an easy climb. You’ll encounter puzzles that are progressively difficult and be confronted by increasingly dangerous creatures. Will you be up to the challenge?

Toren is to be released for PC sometime in 2015.

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.
