Herald, a Two-Part Interactive Period Drama, Sails into Kickstarter – April 23, 2015

Herald is set during an alternate 19th Century in which the West is united as a colonial superpower: the Protectorate. Its choice-driven narrative tells the story of Devan Rensburg, a man of mixed heritage who becomes steward onboard the HLV Herald, a merchant ship sailing for his country of birth. Set in a time of widespread inequality and injustice, the game challenges you, as Devan, to uncover a great mystery surrounding the Herald’s perilous voyage.

The current release of Herald covers Books I and II, available for Windows, Mac and Linux on Steam, GOG and the Humble Store. Books III and IV are in pre-production and will be released at a later date.

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.
