About

Victor - Untold Reveries is a different take on your classic noir investigative game, twisting it with dark supernatural elements.

The game, set in 1990's Detroit, tells the tale of Victor Gooms, a 58 years old private eye, investigating an average missing person case, until he finds himself forced to witness a reality as much strange as it is terrifying: Victor will have to fight to keep a grasp on his sanity and reason, in order to resolve a situation that defies every logic.

Victor - Untold Reveries will be available for PC (Windows / Linux / Mac), and hopefully, given the right circumstances, Nintendo Switch.

In an ordinary day in the summer of 1990, Victor Gooms receives a call from police assistant chief Fred Cooper, asking his unofficial help on a missing person case. However, such a seemingly normal investigation will set Victor on a path to a distorted, dark reality where impossibility triumphs over common sense. How long will Victor be able to resist before losing himself in the Night? Will he be able to put all the pieces together and understand what's really going on before it's too late? Will he ever awake from that nightmare?

Victor - Untold Reveries is, at its core, an investigative game, inspired by masterpieces of the genre like the Ace Attorney series.
In this first part of the game you can walk around freely in the different areas of the map, exploring and working on your case by finding clues, interrogating persons of interest, and solving mysteries.

The other equally important side of the game sees Victor dealing with what he finds beyond the veil, thanks to his newfound sixth sense that allows him to catch glimpses of the Realm of Night. What lies hidden behind everyday reality will catch both him and you, the player, unprepared: now survival is of vital importance, and Victor will need to understand and learn to avoid the terrifying creatures that roam that plane of reality.

The player will have to learn how to handle both this realities, as Victor walks the tight line that divides them.

Making a game is always an exciting experience. It takes time, sweat, blood, all things that every human being usually has at her disposal. However, making a game also takes money.
We wish to stay true to ourselves and our ideal. We need crowdfunding to avoid having to compromise and selling out and to remain fully independent.
If you like what we make, in this way we can keep creating.
We are not asking only for your contribution, we want you, our players, to leave your mark onto our game, to take part in the creative process.

As you can see, excluding taxes and fees, most of the raised money will be used towards the graphic artists' vital job of producing visual assets for the game. Unfortunately, our concept artist and character designer cannot take on the whole effort of the game alone, so most of the funds will be dedicated to making sure that the game has high quality graphics and animations.

 So, we set a goal. Here is what happens after.

  

Voidward Pyramid Studios is an independent videogame development studio. It emerged from the mists of Time in 2018, by the will and passion of its founders. It exists with one purpose: to bring to light our stories and our ideas.

Risks and challenges

The project, once funded, will be carried to its end.
Due to strict budget, if the project barely passes the minimum funds, and considering eventual problems that may arise, the game may be released early or later, but for sure it will be released.
We guarantee the release of the game in any circumstance, provided we reach the goal, and we'll keep in touch, especially in case of problems, in order to keep you all updated.
A delay may occur, but we guarantee no more than two months over the estimated date.

The more funds we'll recive, the smoother the realization of the game will be, and the more the content that we'll release for it, at higher quality.
Over 20.000€ we guarantee that the possibility of delays, problems and such is reduced to almost none and that the game will be released on schedule.
