Imagine a procedurally-generated world that grows around you. Imagine the joy of intentionally getting lost and being found. Imagine yourself in a world in which your presence drives an evolving environment.

Without your presence, would the forest still come alive?

Shape of the World offers a unique unfolding experience for those seeking an alternative to quest-driven adventures. It’s being developed by indie studio Hollow Tree Games in Unreal Engine 4, and offers procedural dynamic effects and a custom responsive soundtrack.

A Kickstarter campaign with a base goal of  $75,000 CAD will run until July 1, 2015. Your backing would be appreciated.

The game will be released in Summer 2016 for PC and Xbox One.

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.
