Julia - reannounced: trailer added
« on: July 28, 2010, 07:08:09 AM »

Hi folks,

Couple of years(!) back we here at CBE presented our new SCI-FI game called Julia (working title). Since then we were silent to the extent of people asking about well-being of the project. We haven't slept but we've decided to totally redesign already almost finished game. Unfortunately this also led to the problem of size-growth so form originally small game we have now game with quite some gameplay to it. This also means we will not do an episodic format, but we'll finish this game as a self-contained product.

Now what actually IS Julia?

Julia is a Science fiction game set onboard of spaceprobe, designed to examine alien life-forms. After many years of search, humankind finally found a solar system which appeared supportive to life-existance and sent a probe towards that place. The game starts a few decades after this expedition in solar system far away from ours, when the last surviving member of the expedition gets awaken from cryo-slumber by ship's artificial intelligence. The probe has been hit by passing meteorites and need fast repair.

  • Step into spacesuit of Rachel Manners, the last member of the exploration crew and find out, why you were singled out of the whole expedition.
  • Use ingenious MOBOT - mobile robot suited for planetary exploration while you discover secrets and mysteries of the solar system
  • Travel to at 6 different planets to uncover their secrets and track down the ill-fated expedition
  • Solve puzzles, gather clues and communicate with overly emotional ship's artificial intelligence Julia


Julia is scheduled for release Spring 2011. Distribution model is still TBA.

If this game piqued your interest, here are some WIP screenshots showing various aspects of the game exploration mode:






Enjoy!

using a girls voice for a computer AI is a rip off of "mother" in alien.
