About

When we talk about adventure, we talk about an all-round experience. Waking the Glares is a journey for all those players who love games that tell great stories. The main character is Dawnfall, a wanderer that follows a mysterious voice that will bring him to fabulous places, meeting challenges that he ver thought he could face and that will allow him to find the way back home.

Please, try out our demo and let us bring you in the universe we are creating!

The game is made of seven chapters, all included in the game and not split in different releases, and each one will have a different atmosphere, different challenges and, therefore, a different gameplay in every stage of the game.

What we mean is that each place visited by Dawnfall will put him in front of new situations that exist because of that place. The gameplay of each chapter has been thought coherently with the environment and the story that the chapter tells, in order to create the higher level of immersivity: what has allowed the player to pass through a chapter could be not that useful in the next. We are confident that we will deliver a game that never gets boring but that never stops being a first person adventure.

This will imply the alternation of intense research phases (find the right object, or the right person, or the right place, or all the three of them) and moments where the player is called for fast thinking and crucial decision taking within a very short time span (catch the opportunity the destiny has brought to you!). Waking the Glares will be an experience made of several moments that have an impact on the player, as all the great journeys do.

Waking the Glares soundtrack will be 100% original. We are working hard to make it an important part of the game that goes along the player during and over the game experience.

The story of Waking the Glares revolves around the writing of a book. All the things that will happen to Dawnfall will happen because this book has been written, and only through the full understanding of its story our hero will find his way back home.

We want the player to live a journey to be remembered. Ordering your copy of Waking the Glares (digital or physical) here on Kickstarter you will have the opportunity to read the actual book that has changed the life of Dawnfall (sent as eBook). It will be a Kickstarter-only offer, since the eBook will be sold separately when Waking the Glares will come out. This is how we want to thank you for supporting us, giving you something that makes the experience deeper.

The idea to create a visionary and fascinating adventure comes from the great experience we had with the Oculus Rift. Since its first days of development Waking the Glares has been planned to be Oculus Rift compatible.

Moreover, the new born Virtual Reality has given us an ambitious objective: to create a game that is pleasing without the using of new devices and that the VR could enhance in its immersivity side. Do not worry, we are creating Waking the Glares keeping in mind a classical computer station so that everyone can enjoy what we are doing.

Where can I find more info and contacts?

Please, visit our website www.wisefoolstudio.com to get more information and all the contacts you will need!

When is your release date?

We have scheduled September 2015 as a reasonable date of launch.

Which languages will the game have?

Voice acting will be in English. Menus and subs will be in English, Italian and Spanish, for now. But thanks to a little stretch goal they could be translated in German, French and Russian!

Which platforms are you on?

Waking the Glares is being created for Windows and Mac. If we have enough support we will create the Xbox One and Playstation 4 versions. So if you want to play it on one of these consoles or if you have friends that could be interested, support and spread the word!

How long does it take to finish Waking the Glares?

The average experience will be around 5-6 hours.

So the game is made of seven chapters. Does it mean there will be seven releases through the years?

Waking the Glares is a single game and it will have all the seven chapters that make the story in it. It is structured by chapters because of the concept itself, but it is a single complete release that leaves no unanswered questions.

Do I need the Oculus Rift to play Waking the Glares?

No, you don't. We see Oculus Rift as a wonderful extension of the experience but our main challenge is to create a game to be remembered for his contents and for the quality of the narration by all the people that will play it, whether they have the Oculus Rift or not.

Will Waking the Glares have DRM?

Waking the Glares will be DRM-free. Anyway we will do what we can to bring Waking the Glares on Steam, so that we can give a Steam code to all those backers who prefer to play it through the Valve system.

Risks and challenges

We have already invested everything on Waking the Glares, dropping part-time jobs and refusing new job offers in order to focus on the game creation with our own funds.
A successful Kickstarter will allow us to work only on Waking the Glares without the need of looking for part-time jobs again. This would mean an overall better quality and a faster release.

Of course, there are always things that cannot be predicted. But this is how we intend your support. We see what we will get from this campaign as a tool to help us in the creation of the game, may it be buying dev kit for consoles, paying professional testers and so on.

We promise you we will invest everything on this and that we will keep updating our Dev Diary throughout the creation of the game and over!
