About

A modern take on a timeless system
A modern take on a timeless system

Supporting our kickstarter is supporting an idea decades in the making. PRE:Cursor is step one of a multi-game, multi-genre project aimed to rekindle your love for fantasy after Game of Thrones Season 8 destroyed it. 

We have spent the last 20 years crafting an expansive universe for our stories to take place in. It has been our dream to be able to express our ideas and realize our characters, environments and narratives in an interactive medium and we hope to finally be able to dedicate all our effort into delivering an intricate and well-designed gaming experience.

The story we want to tell in our inaugural outing as game developers is one of mystery and adventure, set in a fantastical world. You will venture your way through our story-driven, Point & Click style game, solving puzzles and learning about the history and lore of the mysterious location you find yourself in. We want to pay homage to the classic games that spawned the Point & Click genre, whilst delivering a unique and enjoyable experience for both game veterans and those uninitiated in this particular play-style. We have been inspired by amazing retro games that were an integral part of our childhood.

We believe we can give you, the player, a complete experience that will have you experiencing a full range of emotions. Expect to be excited, sad, hysterical, afraid - and wanting more.

The story begins as you are introduced to three of the main characters: Ashleigh, Arya and Linky. What begins as an ordinary day for young siblings, turns into a life-changing, mind-bending trip into an unknown world.

After sneaking into their father's office, the trio soon find themselves dropping off to sleep. When they come to, they discover they are no longer in the same room. While they seem to still be in an office, this one feels much older and the atmosphere is vastly more foreboding. 

On closer inspection of this mysterious room, they are able to make out a faint glow outlining a door on the far side of the room. However, they are abruptly interrupted by the terrified whimpers of a young boy who appears to be in his early teens. Curiosity wins out over fear as they speak to the young man. Their interaction leaves them even more confused as he is has no memory of who he is or how he came to be in this situation. The only memory he is able to recall is a name; an unusual name to match his unusual clothing. He is also unable to say how long he has spent in this room.

Who is this boy?

Where on Earth have the kids found themselves?

The further you proceed through the many layers of the story, collaborating and switching between your party members, the more you will begin to unravel your true purpose within this exciting fantasy world. A world where beings of amazing and terrific power reside. Beings that could not possibly exist in the world you know - the world of normalcy and reason.

The path you take may very well set in motion events that will effect the future and survival of the cosmos. You will be sent hurtling towards a conflict that will not only require you to hold the fate of all in your hands, but will also begin your journey into a much larger saga through an expansive universe, full of intrigue and adventure.

  •  Four playable characters with unique skill sets - exploit each character's strengths to overcome obstacles, and collaborate between them to make up for their weaknesses.
  •  Puzzles - test your mind as you make your way through an unknown labyrinth of locations, using what you have on hand and the environment around you to gain pivotal information.
  •  Multiple difficulties - made it through the game? Why not try again - but do things a little differently this time. Maybe don't bring one of the characters along with you. You might find things don't turn out quite as expected...
  •  Streamlined UI - Easy to use interaction system, designed to make your experience smoother to navigate.

- Funding - what it will afford us...

  • Pay studio expenses while in development
  • Licensing for tools needed to produce the game
  • Get the game to the highest possible quality fitting in with our vision of the game 
  • Animating the cut scenes for pivotal points in the games story
  • Outsourcing where necessary to allow us to deliver polished characters and environments

On behalf of the Sentral Arts team we would like to thank you for taking the time to view our campaign and an extra special thanks if you pledged to us. We appreciate it more than you can imagine.

Risks and challenges

With all endeavors like these there are certain risks involved. We are small team, with only two members that will be working on the game full-time . This means time management can become an issue when it comes to meeting timeline expectations. Despite this, we are determined to see the game through to its completion and deliver a pleasurable experience to our backers. We will do everything within our power to see this happen!
