Meet one of the most unusual looking games from a small indie duo, which invites you to a great virtual adventure.
Little is known about Totem Teller. According to the official description, it’s a game about ‘discovering things alone’. The player is tasked with exploring a beautiful world, which is filled with stories and gorgeous environments. The whole project started as an idea for onegameamonth.com (#1GAM). The game is being developed by a small company Grinning Pickle, which has just 3 people on payroll: Ben Kerslake, Jerry Verhoeven, Kian How. The company is based in China. We’ve seen a number of great indie teams coming from China recently, so we’re really looking forward to hearing more about the game.
Totem Teller has started as a stand-alone game almost 2 years ago in November of 2015. While it’s far from being finished, the game does promise a lot of interesting things. There will be a big world, which doesn’t hold any prompts or golden paths. We believe it’s going to be so much closer to Hyper Light Drifter. Your main task is to restore and retell various stories.
The whole visuals of Totem Teller are inspired by ‘a picture storybook’. To achieve this interesting effects developers used a lot of post-processing effects, which change the look of the whole world. The game uses isometric perspective and it designed with the help of Unity 5.
The release date hasn’t been announced yet.
