The small German studio Duangle has launched a crowdfunding campaign for their first-person exploration game NOWHERE. Unlike most other studios, Duangle is forgoing IndieGoGo or Kickstarter to instead try their hands at their own crowdfunding initiative. Through this campaign they are hoping to raise €120,000 (roughly $162,000), and the time of this article they already have roughly €9,700. Considering the campaign is only 3 days in, the results have been fairly decent, but there is still a ways to go should the game be fully funded.
NOWHERE seems to be rather unique experience where players can explore the human condition. Throughout the game you will explore various topics such as family, politics, science, religion, and culture. Games in general serve as great learning experiences and often provide new perspectives on various subjects. If this game sounds interesting, you can pre-order it now and enter alpha for an exclusive price of $21.
Still in early alpha stage, NOWHERE aims to be a holistic first person experience set within a mystic cosmos, focusing on emergent player-driven storytelling, strong social AI and high replayability through the use of procedural content, combining gameplay elements of exploration, survival, strategy, communication and adventure.
Our story arc aims to explore human topics such as family, science, religion, politics, culture and history as well as shed light on existential themes such as fate, choice and free will, seen through the unfamiliar lens of individuals in a post humanist, post singularian alien society.
NOWHERE was born out of a personal desire to make sense of the human condition through the pursuit of new experiences. We believe that games can relate wisdom; we are convinced that playing games can lead to new perspectives and better life decisions in a fun way. With NOWHERE we aim to contribute to this line of thought.
