Kickstarter-funded Wanda: A Beautiful Apocalypse, while being a post-apocalyptic game, won’t be ghastly or full of gore. Indie developer Kodots Studio is approaching this kind of scenario from a completely different perspective.

Wanda is about two childlike robots who somehow manage to sleep through the end of the world as they know it. Upon waking each is alone, without any memories, in a scary, devastated world.

Although they’re afraid, they find each other and come together to form a strong bond. Their story will unfold through mini-puzzles as the two robots explore their ruined surroundings, seeking a meaning to their existence. Theirs will be a journey of extraordinarily gripping moments, both bittersweet and heartwarming.

Wanda‘s story will unfold wordlessly.  Everything will be presented in a “show but don’t tell” style, without comprehensible dialog.

The game will have an absolutely beautiful symphonic soundtrack by Seattle-based composer David Lister. Have a listen:

Look for Wanda: A Beautiful Apocalypse this February/March for Windows. The game can be pre-ordered hereAlthough the Kickstarter campaign is over, all funds raised will be applied to stretch goals.

“We aim to make Wanda a simple, pleasant and a very personal experience for you.” – Kodots Games

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.
