Hunedoara is a horror investigation project, born from a team of students of Accademia Italiana Videogiochi (AIV, Italian Academy of Videogames). In the heart of the unsettling Transylvanian forest, a mystery unfolds in the region of Hunedoara, in Romania, around the ominous Corvin Castle. The main character is set to solve a series of misteries regarding his own dark past and an uncurable disease that originates from the very roots of this evil region. It is here, amidst the folklore and the sinister urban legends of Romania, that disturbing presences stalk the unwary visitors, and the shadow of Cthulhu, the Ancient One from the Lovecraftian Horror is cast to hunt the fragile human minds. Hunedoara is a terrifying, dreadful first person experience, to live in a constant state of anxiety, on the verge of insanity; unravel the mistery of Hunedoara, if you dare.

The game is inspired by horror classics such as Resident Evil / Biohazard and Silent Hill and will lead the player to deal with a very interesting story full of twists. The two characters – with different traits and abilities – will face a real hell on earth, in a modern environment. The action-style combat system will offer dangerous and fast fightings, but brute force will not go far … Fleshforward will feature an action system focused on firearms: no turn-based combat, but pure action. Having a “shooter” approach is sometimes a mistake: there are many enemies and you will find yourself outnumbered. A stealth approach is the best choice sometimes.

Milky Way Prince is first-person Interactive visual novel about an abusive relationship with a partner who suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder. It’s a Love/Erotic story, between a guy and a shooting star, that follows players’ decisions. The main themes are idealization and self-annihilation/ sacrifice for the beloved one. During my experience with a Borderline partner, I thought that falling in love with a person with this disorder is like falling in love with a star. You feel like it’s the most precious thing in the universe and the more the love grows the more unstable they become.I think that using this metaphor could be an effective way to indirectly talk about this tough topic. My idea was to create an immersive experience where the player is asked to try to understand the dynamics of this unusual relationship. The character you interact with morphs his behavior/reactions on the player “strategy”. He could set up “rage tests”,“love bombing sessions” or ways to move compassion or make you feel guilty. The plot storylines are regulated by global variables such as “your submission” or “your interest in him”.
