Brummwiesel is about to get lost in a place that combines reality and dream.

 

What is this world and how did he get there? Can you help him?

 

Nothing's unusual. Nothing's spectacular. You could say that Brummwiesel stagnates. He lives a life that he doesn't desire but can't escape, either.

Everyday life makes him a container for emotions that he needs to hold back. Just when he realizes that he can't go on like this any longer,

he finds himself in a strange world that is not too far from reality. But is this still reality? Brummwiesel will need to find out soon, because

his stay here seems to be limited. In this foreign world, Brummwiesel travels everyday. He's on the journey of his life.

Lastly, everything's unusual. Everything's spectacular. Nothing's right!

I love the concept of the game, and the aesthetics are very creepy, cryptic, and yet somehow playful at the same time.  I feel like a lot of creative things can be done with it.  Best of luck to you!

Really dig the graphics!  Screenshots and teaser are quite intriguing, and the music sets the mood quite well.

Looking forward to future updates!

Thank you :)

 

 

I wanted to post more actively about the project, but as all you creative people might know... there are those ups and downs with the creativity thing ^_^ However, the game is currently progressing well and finally, I can show you a short demo version that introduces you to the game's story, feeling and gameplay.

 

You can take a look at (full version's) ingame story and gameplay scenes by watching a new trailer on YouTube:

In the demo version, you can play 2 different levels, the office and the construction site.

Playing time should be up to 1 hour if all the content is being played.

Have fun! Let me know your comments on the game. Any thoughts are much appreciated, since I'm already working hard on the full version and ready to implement changes and improvements :)

Played the first stage and half of the second stage. The concept is amazing and easy to pick up, but a deeper tutorial might come in handy in the future for those familiarized with certain terms. For example, what purpose does LK and EN serve and what does the item LK and EN sitting on the ground do?

 

Even as a Non-German speaker, I found the music and scenery fitting for the game. I could almost feel the dread of coming into morning office of work.

There's an update again, and it's quite a big one about my plans for the future :o

 

Dark and Bright is almost finished! The thing I still need to work on a lot is the translation of the game so that it will be available in German and English, which will still take a while. Nevertheless, I submitted the game to Steam Greenlight to reach a wider audience in the future (and to use this last chance to make it onto Greenlight before it will be replaced).

 

If you like to support the project, please consider voting YES for it on Steam Greenlight. I appreciate any vote and support and it really means a lot to me! thumbsup.png
