We are very excited to officially announce Havencall, our first game using the VIDE animation toolkit! Havencall will be a short (2-4 hour) point and click adventure game which tells the story of a strange girl named Aura, and her journey between worlds to find the haven of her dreams. The original idea for this game dates back to 2009, but it wasn't until recently that everything came together: the technology, the story, and the design for what is in many ways our dream game - both to play and create.

My hope is for the game to be a stunning audio/visual experience that brings the strange and varied worlds of Aura's universe to life, with unusual puzzles and challenges along the way. I don't want to reveal too much of the story, so I will only say that it will be a mystical, magical and even philosophical journey.

Stay tuned for more updates on Havencall, but they may be sparse as I don't want to spoil the story! I have also set up a website for the game here: http://havencall.com/, which we will update with more content as development progresses.
