My name is Mike and I’m creator and worker of one-man team called Spikeprojects. I love to create graphics, animations and games.

I would like to announce my new project called Singular Matter. This is a short visual novel about the fate of three scientists experiencing very disturbing phenomena after an accident in the Alternative Energy Research Institute. You play as one of them. As the story unravels you dive into the dark recesses of the human psyche, post-apocalyptic world, and the horrible truth about the universe.

Here are some screenshots:

Thank you for appreciating my artwork. It took me a lot of time to achieve the desired effect.

Singular Matter is a science-fiction visual novel made with Tyranobuilder engine: https://tyranobuilder.com/

Throughout the game, you can see the surroundings through the protagonist's eyes, who suffers from derealization, which causes the objects you see to be flattened, without depth (this also affected the visual style of the game).

In 1920 Albert Einstein discovered the General Theory of Relativity, which was to be the first step to the theory of everything. After some time of admiration for the simplicity, elegance and beauty of this theory, clouds began to gather. A little later quantum physics was discovered, which absolutely did not match the general theory of relativity.

Around 2040 In Alternative Energy Research Institute was discovered another state of mater called Singular Exotic Matter. This kind of matter was in the stage of testing. From a theoretical point of view, it was a matter that could connect traditional (baryonic) matter to the quantum realm and then create the theory of everything.
Our protagonist along with his friends went to retrieve Singular Matter from the accelerator - it was a simple and routine procedure. Unfortunately, this time several key factors failed at the same time causing disaster.

Dude.

This handrawn art style is FIRE!

It looks so good!

I know you are a one man team, but do you have need of a composer?

I would love to write a track for your game to show you what I can do for you!

Let me know!

Hi,

I sent you a private message, but I don't know if you received it.
I would be very glad if you wrote a track for the project.
The best one would be something scary (horror-like). Smiley

Singular matter's grim world

World of the singular matter is post-apocalyptic, uninviting, and grim place to live. This is caused by multiple factors. The greatest problem was the eruption of Yellowstone volcano in USA. Though it was not so devastating as scientists predicted, it caused a lot of deaths, and the death toll is climbing. Many places in California are now unhabitable. This caused a lot of dwellers to moved to the east coast or leave the country for good.

It disrupted weather patterns around the globe, making one place freezing and other extremely hot.

As it was not enough global warming effect also took its toll. Melting permafrost caps of Antarctica released substantial amounts of ammonia, which also further speeds up racing global warming.

Predicting the impending doom NWO of united Europe decided to implement far-reaching steps.
Benefiting very hard rock deposits Under Alternative Energy Research Institute (AERI) they decided to built self sustaining enormous cavity where thousands of residents could take shelter.
It is a miracle of modern technology. Other cavities are being constructed in other parts of Europe.
The cavity has enough of sunshine provided by cleverly constructed mirrors and systems that strengthen the light which enables an appropriate day /night cycle.

I love the artwork! Tell us more about your project.

Hello,

Creating artwork was no simple task. The basis of almost every picture was a photograph taken mainly by me. Then different colleges were made. All pictures used as backgrounds which wasn't they found by google labeled “free to use with modification”. After collecting enough pictures to tell the story, I gave it a certain style. The world we see is the world which protagonist (Jim) would see through his own eyes. Because he suffers from derealization which causes constant impression that everything around is like 2D drawing and it’s fake which well corresponds with the player point of view.

Then I decided to go through a long process of trial and error to receive the desired visual effect.
Almost all pictures went through colored chalk (Paint Shop Pro script), then I fiddled with different sliders to give each picture accurate mood, and then I used AKVIS Sketch, to give it well sketchy look. Then I worked in Infinite Painter on a tablet to sharpen the edges. If you have more question feel free to ask  Smiley

Singular Matter is influenced by both genres of science fiction, Hard Science Fiction, and Soft Science fiction.
Hard science fiction is a category of science fiction characterized by concern for scientific accuracy and logic
while Soft Science fiction explores the "soft" sciences, and especially the social sciences (for example, anthropology, sociology, or psychology), rather than engineering or the "hard" sciences (for example, physics, astronomy, or chemistry).

Hard Science Fiction

Since a long time ago physicists were in pursuit of discovering so-called EXOTIC MATTER. They are hypothetical particles and states of matter that have "exotic" physical properties that would violate known laws of physics, for example, a particle having a negative mass and a lot, a lot more. This leads to obtaining obscure singular exotic matter.

Soft Science fiction

This is a breakthrough made by three outstanding scientists. The problem with Singular Matter is mainly for the government of the United States of Europe. The government is feeling pressure from activists to build new kind safe nuclear reactors. But haste is not a good idea, especially if you don't know what you are doing and what kind of nightmare you can bring to the world. The singular matter has unforeseen body and brain affecting effects. What is more baffling, everyone exposed to this kind of matter reacts differently.

Your visual style is very good. I think the overall effect of the game will enhance further if you chose some special font for the text. Maybe comic book style fonts or some serif fonts. Looking forward to the release. All the best!
