Epanalepsis Will Travel Through Time to PC, Mac and Linux on May 21st

The narrative-driven point-and-click adventure from indie developer Cameron Kunzelman takes place in three different time-frames and illustrates the unyielding progression of life and technology

Developer Cameron Kunzelman creates games that intersect with art and philosophy.

Epanalepsis explores 60 years of urban life through three characters: one in the 1990s, one in the 2010s and one in the 2030s. Each will face problems unique to his/her individual time period, and each will encounter something extremely strange.

The game has been influenced by such sci-fi authors as Joanna Russ and Philip K. Dick, and games such as The Shiva. Kunzelman has described Epanalepsis as “weird and endearing, warm and nihilistic, funny and somber.”

For a fascinating philosophical piece from Kunzelman concerning the nature of such concepts as reality and choice — using the film No Country for Old Men as an example and applying the belief system of bad guy Anton Chigurh (a very scary dude) to videogames — have a look at his blog.

The plan is to launch Epanalepsis on Steam for PC, Mac and Linux on May 21, 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.
