Ithaka Update #2

The time we spent in Greece was great for Ithaka of the Clouds. Verena did a lot of drawing every day and, after some stylistic experiments, finished most of the images for the first part of the game. Yes, the game is divided into parts… but I really don’t want to spoil this stuff for […]

Serious, Not Solemn

This is one of main principles behind the Lands of Dream games.

Clearer Stretch Goals

I’ve been asked to clarify our stretch goals for Ithaka of the Clouds, so I’ve made a list. With numbers and stuff. $13,500 – remake The Strange and Somewhat Sinister Tale of the House at Desert Bridge $14,000 – update The Book of Living Magic, add minor improvements to The Fabulous Screech $15,000 – remake […]

This Is Actually Happening

Enough people have gotten together and contributed money that a game about gay trolls based on the poetry of Kavafis is actually happening. Seriously. Wow. I don’t know how many people are out there who want interactive storytelling rooted in literature and poetry and philosophy, with political undertones and bad puns… but there are enough. […]

(Because nothing says “thoughtful, intelligent art” like a lolcat. Right?)

Stretch Goals

So, what would happen if our Indiegogo campaign got more money than we asked for? Our life would generally be easier, since we asked for the bare minimum required to make Ithaka of the Clouds, but that’s not all: we’d also use the money to go back and remake/update The Strange and Somewhat Sinister Tale […]

The Music of the Lands of Dream – Part I

Here’s an update from Chris Christodoulou, the amazingly talented composer of The Sea Will Claim Everything and now Ithaka of the Clouds: Hi, I don’t believe we have met before. Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Chris and I’m your travel age— sorry, I mean I’m the composer of Ithaka of the Clouds. Some of […]

A Q&A with Joseph Kyranzes

Check out this wonderful video with our intelligent, kind, erudite and entirely real producer, Joseph Kyranzes. Who is not fake. At all. Really.

Ithaka of the Clouds – An Update

The first few days of the campaign have been amazing. We freaked out a little when Paypal suddenly stopped processing contributions for almost a day (just our luck), but once everything was fixed we saw that quite a few people were actually supporting us. It’s slowed down now, but we’ve already reached more than $7000! […]
