This week, video game studio Team Gotham launched a crowdfunding campaign on Fig to raise $64,000 for its latest gaming project, Solo, which is described as an exploration game in which a sailor is traveling through a vast archipelago, solving puzzles, and wondering about love.
“Solo is a game about love. About love as fuel, the force that drive us. It is a universal feeling, but each of us experiences it in a different way. Individually, it holds different meanings depending on a variety of factors such as: culture, gender, sexuality or traumas. That’s why Solo will explore this theme in an introspective way, to have the players identify and reflect on their own experiences.”
Team Gotham noted the game starts when the sailor embarks on a journey to find love. The game’s adventure begins by setting the sailor’s gender, and the gender they wish to love in the game. It was also noted:
“As the players gets in to the adventure, the sailor will travel through different archipelagos, trying to fix them along the way. Each island on the archipelago will present unique puzzles with different questions. The Sleeping Totems will guide the player through important introspective thoughts. Those questions change depending on the player’s state. Besides questions, Solo includes letters from the sailor’s lover or ideas about love. Those letters adapt to the player’s feelings, based on answers to the Sleeping Totems’ questions. If the player is in the Solo state, the letters will come from a partner. Those in the In-Couple state, will get letters from their actual partner. Those in the Heartbroken state, will get letters from ex-partners.”
Those who back the campaign will receive various perks including, a digital copy of Solo, your name in the ending credit, digital soundtrack, and digital art book. So far, the campaign has raised nearly $25,000 and it is set to close at the end of February.
