Wreck Tangle Games Releases a Pre-Alpha Teaser for ALASKA – March 6, 2017 

It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood  

Wreck Tangle Games (WTG) is a one-man development studio founded by Orion Moon (aka Adam Reed). With a background in music, directing, and writing, Mr. Moon decided to use his talents to develop story- driven games. His first game, GiAnt, was released in 2016 and presents the world through the eyes of an ant. With Alaska, WTG has moved on to human interactions with the goal of involving the player emotionally through narrative and character development.

You play Alaska from the first-person perspective of Blake, a young man who has come to Alaska to redefine himself. The first half the game focuses on your integration into a small town. You get to know the residents and participate in activities such as ice skating, fishing, hunting (don’t worry, adventurers – wildlife does not normally shoot back!), and chopping wood. These activities are presented as “mini-games” to keep the player engaged in the Alaskan community.

Darkness Comes  

Eventually, a murder is committed and the tranquility of small-town life is shattered. After a body is discovered on the town’s airstrip, your focus shifts to solving the murder and figuring out if your neighbors are friends or foes.

WTG describes Alaska as “a dark and twisted tale” which will keep the player “gripped from start to finish.” Mr. Moon promises to capture the beauty of Alaska in the graphics and set the tone with original music. Excerpts from the game’s soundtrack can be listened to on SoundCloud  .

For additional information on Alaska visit the  game’s website. The game is is currently available on GameJolt and will hit Steam on February 22nd.

Cindy’s love affair with gaming began when she opened a mailbox in front of a white house and took the first step in a long series of adventures. ‘Back in the day,’ Cindy was a regular contributor to JA and an active member of the online gaming community. She has attended several E3s and has had the pleasure of spending time in person with both Ray and Randy. Her all- time favorite adventures include the Tex Murphy series, the Gabriel Knight series, and The Longest Journey. She also enjoys RPGs and her list of ‘best ever’ includes Fallout, Asheron’s Call, and Planescape Torment. Â Frustrated with the cost of rising PC system requirements, Cindy decided to switch to console and tablet gaming. Although you can teach some old dogs new tricks, she discovered that console controller dexterity is a skill set that she is lacking. Her results with tablet gaming were not much better. With the exception of a few gems such as The Room and Forever Lost, there is a limit to how much one can play Candy Crush and Hidden Object Adventures. Having proved that pure escapism is worth the investment, she has a new gaming laptop and is back to her search for the perfect adventure. Â After spending most of her life in Los Angeles and Atlanta, Cindy escaped the stress of urban life and moved to rural Arkansas. To show that she has become a true Arkansan, she has taken up deer hunting, wears pink camo, and put a chicken coop in her backyard. On a stressful day, she can be heard yelling ‘Woo Pig Sooie’ when all else fails.
