Wheezing. Spluttering. Gasping for air.
You are suddenly wrenched from your unconscious state, sweating in the thick, black darkness. An intense odour of charred flesh penetrates your nostrils. It reminds you of the time you were burning feathers off the bird for the Second-Winter feast. How deliciously tasty it had been once spatchcocked and spit-roasted! Your mind wanders to the satisfying smell of roast chicken and you salivate.
But no birds fly here now. For they, to your knowledge, have long since been doomed. In fact, no animals were evacuated to this part of the Omniverse, you recall.
The scalding air dries your mouth at once and you jolt back to the here, to the now, and to the choking heat of the obscurity.
You draw yourself into a sitting position, lean back against the wall momentarily, then decide to hunch over so as to breathe easier. But you cannot. It is only now, as you scan your surroundings with half-drunk eyes that you notice a light in the distance and a PIECE OF PAPER on the ground beide you.
Now the sound of crackling. Or is it dripping? Or both?
That stench of scorched meat again…
YOU SHOULD MOVE.
Omniverse: Book 1 - Prologue is the first book in a dystopian interactive open-world puzzle adventure gamebook saga.
The story is set after The Great Cull in which 90% of the human population was wiped out, and almost all of the rest enslaved.
A first-person perspective adventure, Omniverse is a new and unique type of gamebook with a strong emphasis on narrative and plot, and in which there is no beginning, only a vast middle and one end (if you can find your way to it!).
Your adventures begin anywhere you choose - so just pick a page and start moving!
As you go on, the Omniverse will reveal its secrets and you will have to piece together the puzzle to figure out who you are, where you are, what you need to do and why!
Venture deep into the Omniverse and you will see that this is not an adventure you can lose, only get lost in! This is not a book of fights, keys and passages – it is a complex world of more than 100 scenes to explore in 360° over 400+ pages - so a notebook and pencil are useful!
In this fully open-world book, only you decide where to move. You will of course need to interact with objects in order to solve the puzzles and complete tasks as they arise.
Keep your wits about you as you encounter different characters and places as some scenes will contain puzzles, hints, cryptic clues or references to new information that may prove vital to your success - or send you on a wild goose chase!
This is a unique open-world video game in book format that will test your skill, perception and perseverance.
There is a SPECIAL BONUS REWARD for ALL the early-bird backers who get on board before we hit 50% funding!
100% is vital to get the book to you before the end of the year, but additional funds would be useful! Here are the plans -
+50% funded : ADDITIONAL ILLUSTRATIONS
Additional illustrations will be commissioned adding more depth and puzzles to your adventures.
+150% funded : SOUNDTRACK
A soundtrack will be produced to accompany your adventure
The funds will be, for the most part, spent on the production, manufacture and promotion of the physical book - it's a thick book and it costs a lot to make and send out!
There are as ever other costs to cover such as Kickstarter’s fee, etc... But every penny will go into producing Omniverse : Book 1 - Prologue, I can assure you of that!
Risks and challenges
This book doesn't seem to fit into any pigeon-hole and I have a very specific vision that I would like to fulfill with you guys onboard.
I'm also very weary of the fact that I don't have an online tribe that'll push my project forward! Guys, that's where you come in! I hope you'll all help in spreading the word about Omniverse on social media and anywhere else!
Offline I have a reputation of being honest, upfront and punctual. I will conduct my online projects in the same way!
Your investment is really appreciated and I have done my utmost to make sure that Omniverse: Book 1 - Prologue lives up to your expectations!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
