Solo Shows Up on Fig and Greenlight – January 19, 2017 

Team Gotham is a Madrid-based development team. The group was founded in 2011 by five friends who had connected while at university. They have remained busy “crafting detailed experiences to express themselves through the game media.” In March of 2016, they released their first game, The Guest. It was an exploratory escape puzzler that was fairly well received, as evidenced by Steam reviews.


In early 2017, they launched a Fig campaign and raised almost $70,000 to fund the completion of Solo. It is due out at the end of April and represents a significant departure from their previous game. With a focus on love and relationships, the game environment is a surreal island landscape with interactive puzzles and player activities such as feeding the animals, playing the guitar, and taking pictures.

As part of the Solo development process, Team Gotham collaborated with narrative designer Jordi de Paco. Mr. de Paco served as the creative director for The Red Strings Club and Gods Will Be Watching.

In the words of creative director Juan De La Torre, “Solo offers players a safe space they can comfortably wrap themselves in while providing the option to reflect on love’s place in their life.” He adds that “The welcoming world, metaphoric story, creative puzzle solving mechanics and other small details bring the kindness of the isles to life so the player is free to think about what matters most.”

Additional information about Team Gotham can be found on their web site. Solo is currently available on Steam as a game to add to your wish list.

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.
