'For Each Our Roads of Winter' is an episodic exploration game in which you will uncover the secrets of a past that never was. Played from a first-person perspective and tuned for Oculus Rift VR Headsets.

From the developer of 'Hunting Anubis', 'Xaxi ' and the Ludum Dare winning 'Lumiere'; inspired by the disparate worlds of Cyan Worlds ('Myst', 'Riven'), Ice Pick Lodge ('Pathologic', 'The Void'), Piranesi, Étienne-Louis Boullée, Borges, and featuring a unique real-time photorealistic visual style powered by Unreal Engine 4, combining elements from both modern photography and the works of antiquity.

> To be available for PC, Mac and Linux.
> Price and Release Date to be announced when ready!
> Currently at a Pre-Alpha stage of development.

Looks great. I would play that even without proper gameplay, if it will support Oculus Rift. It's on UE4, so I hope. It also reminds me MIND: Path to Thalamus. I'm looking for more.

Amazing work, everything is so crisp and detailed and physically *real* looking.  I took the easy way out and "smeared vaseline on the lens" to mask the rudimentary visuals in my UE4 game ;)

I saw your project here a few days ago and I was glad to see it here so I could comment: my appetite is officially whetted - can't wait to see more!

Also: "why not instead of puzzles: riddles?"  Yes please ;)

Been chugging along with this, modelled a ton of architectural elements. Started using C4D for this, and it was a really good choice as the parametric tools make modelling 100x easier and more fluid (Both to make, and in visual style). In addition, I've set up a proper page with more info.

Got a couple of big announcements on their way, stay tuned.

New graphic design work by http://cargocollective.com/threeWiseMen, btw.

Being able to "throw away" all your work, even if it is the smartest decision, is pretty impressive! Definitely looking forward to how this game comes together.

I adored the visual style of hunting anubis and some of these images are giving me so many of those vibes. This is going to be incredible. Thank you for sharing the images.

Very nicely done. 

Are you using Photogrammetry?  I could add it to my list if so

Wasn't surprised at all when I saw "orihaus" attached to the trailer that's been going around. It's been great to see you develop and own a your own calling card visual style over the years. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit jealous.  Wink

The concept looks super interesting. I like the idea of riddles vs puzzles. The likes of Myst and Riven had some incredibly brutal puzzles that I feel were actually quite disrespectful to the player. I doubt either of them would sell in today's saturated market.

You could do well by focusing instead on the mystery of exploring this strange world. That distills the essence of what was magical about Myst - besides the puzzles they had a concrete and interesting narrative.

Latest graphic design stuff has come through, so I put together a couple of posters for the sake of it:







Here's a little game, guess the geographical location of each of these factions and win yourself a 1x1 pixel unique snowflake ingame, in the snow patch of your choice! Guessing the art used will net you a double sized snowflake.
