Anyone have any good new about ?

(Sorry, I'm blaming the poster above for reminding me FMV games are a thing...)
Sadly, no. :(

The last update I read was in mid-last year. I believe they were trying to get it done for late 2019, but that came and went, and they haven't updated anything in some time.
Hopefully, it's just to avoid further delays.

Their twitter page (which is the platform that they more frequently updated) is:

And, the websites:

Wales Interactive have a trailer for an interesting take on an FMV game.


At first i thought oh dear where is this going but by the end i could see how it could go places. I'm curious to hear more.

edit: looks like they put it up too early and have now pulled it down. It'll surface again soon, i'm sure.

The Dark Side of the Moon released on the 12th March and has positive reviews, seems a bit short at 2-3 hours but that's fine for an FMV game. Low budget but with some good acting, worth keeping an eye on i think.


Giant Bomb did a Quick Look the other day.

Bumpage! Erica ( listed above ) is out and has a 10% discount at the moment on it's already cheap price.

I Saw Black Clouds is looking a bit disappointing for an FMV. It's a really well made film apparently but the choices are a bit flimsy and there's no mid-saves or chapter select so you have to replay for the different endings. Those that do like it have said the negative reviews are a bit harsh so I might still pick it up next month anyway.

Just logged in to Steam after a few weeks an i'd missed this. It has mixed reviews but that seems to be because it,s short and people aren't finding it that scary. I'll probably get it anyway because Wales Interactive are really helping to keep the genre alive and i like to support them.


Produced during all the lockdowns too which is great effort for a small and improving dev/publisher.
