A Kickstarter has just launched for a new game called Niten which is being developed by the brilliantly named Scottish developer Donald MacDonald.
Niten is a game that’s been inspired by popular titles such as Dear Esther and Gone Home, and is a story-driven exploration game powered by Unreal Engine 4. Players will be invited to explore the island and uncover its history and previous inhabitants, specifically a Samurai Master and his orphan child student.
The game had been designed to be a tranquil experience of exploration with gorgeous looking Japanese landscapes accompanied by “a fully immersive audio experience”. At the conclusion of a playthrough story fragments can also be downloaded as pages to complete a graphic novel.
Donald is looking to raise a very reasonable £15,000 and is hoping to also release a VR version. Take a look at the trailer below, the visuals are quite stunning.
