The developers of the upcoming game Schein have released a short dev-demo for the game through their site. This dev-demo is to show off the basic gameplay and techniques used in the Schein and to give you a taste of the game before its Q1 2013 release. Everything shown in this demo is subject to change however as this is not the finished product.
The life of a young man changes drastically when the dead body of his only son is found at the edge of a forest. Remembering an old legend about a magical place in the bordering swamp, and driven by the wish to revive his son, he begins his long and perilous journey.
At the brink of madness and narrowly evading death, a small glimmer of hope appears in the form of the “Irrlicht”. This ghostly light offers its help in the search for a way through the natural labyrinth. Entrusting his life to the mystical being, the man follows the “Irrlicht” and discovers its hidden powers: The radiating light of the fiery ghost unveils new paths through the deadly marshland where none could be seen before. Bathing their surroundings in colorful illusions, ghost and man advance further toward the deepest, darkest secrets of the swamp.
Schein is expected to release in Quarter 1 2013 and the final product will feature 12 levels guarded by 4 monsters. The game will be releasing for Windows only and is planned to be optimized for the Xbox 360 controller. The student team behind the game appear ready to bring a quality first title.
