Ithaka of the Clouds

This landscape does not have a description.

When setting out upon your way to Ithaka,
wish always that your course be long,
full of adventure, full of lore.

Ithaka of the Clouds is the story of two Trolls and their journey across the Lands of Dream, inspired by the poetry of Cavafy. It was successfully crowdfunded in 2013 and is set to be released in 2014.

My favourite piece of concept art.

  1. I’ve played both of the other Lands of Dream games (and put them up as Let’s Plays a.k.a gameplay with commentary… see my website), and I’m very much looking forward to this new one! Any idea when this might come out? Keep up the great work!

  2. Thanks – I’d love to watch those, but can’t do so before December when I get my regular internet connection back. Limited bandwidth sucks.

    As to when it might come out, I don’t know. It’s going to be massive, and creating hundreds rather than just dozens of images (and at an increased level of detail) will take Verena several months. It’s really hard to predict, but you can trust me when I say that the result will be quite unlike any other game.
