GAME IS OUT NOW!
Steam
GoG


"Given rise to a sleepless slumber, something stirs in the back of our minds. A relentless feel we are alone.

The decimation of what could be called sanity comes at the cost of a reality that shivers on the boundries of the unseen. Nested somewere deep something lies, dormant and yet ever present with an intent that may provoke de definition of malicious. It lies in way that our concious fears cannot reach it, waiting and seeing the unatural development that sanity spiral downwards."


Yeah, I'm here :)

So here it is, IPL new game. Knock-Knock.

The game is currently on kickstarter with a target $30k in 46 days and is currently sitting at +- 3k with 109 backers and 46 days still to go.

We can use this as an unofficial thread to keep track of anything related to Knock-Knock (KK for short).

Final count of the pledges

Since IPL also have a Paypal system setup I'm not sure if these are counted on the KS stats, anyway:
Total received amount: 1234.00 USD ( transactions: 59 )

/me runs off to dust his credit card.

Supported. Might not have been the first... :oops:

But I was the third! :D

Just please, a drm free version would be lovely. Perhaps a release on gog.com along with Pathologic, The Void and Cargo?

I've made a topic on gamefaqs, listed it on facebook and mentioned it on the TES forums.

This needs to be supported. Ice-Pick <3

:edit: Can add a topic on Bioware Social as well as gog.com as well.

:edit 2: Forwarded the Kickstarter to Indiegames.com as a story suggestion.

I would also love to see then on GoG, after all I could use my fifth copy of The Void :D

The biggest impediment however is that the publisher probably hold all the rights.

If this is a successes however perhaps we could see Pathologic with a new translation (and my dream in The Void engine).

Best avoid going to other game companies sites, less confusion and problems that way.

Are there any arts and media sites that would be worth contacting to see if they'd cover the story?

Trying to make sure there's the possibility of some discussion as opposed to just leaving a link and ignoring it.

Waiting on approval for a topic on CVG as well. :)

I've possible, could I get permission from IPL to reupload both KK videos into my account? I have a few subscription that might help raise awareness.

Now if only Halfgild would grace us in the English Forums with his presence... :cry:

Almost half way! :D

Can add a topic on tigsource also. :)

http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=27603.0

How do you go about submitting requests/tips for a story with tigsource?

Any Russian outlets that can be sent a tip on the story also? I'm guessing that there'll be Russian localisation for Knock Knock?

Do you think it would be worth trying to get some discussion started on arts or retro forums regarding Knock Knock?

Backed! ...Of course.

You guys can probably count on me writing a guide for this one too. Assuming it gets funded and released.

Just got the Kickstarter update mailed and it made me smile.

If you haven't gotten it yet:

First of all we would like to thank you very much, both for your support, and for all those wonderful responses our project is getting. We have already raised about two thirds of our funding goal - and there is still a lot of time left! Frankly speaking, we have never expected the result to be that good. Nevertheless, now it seems that we might as well get a bit more than we hoped for, so we would like to let you know what happens if we raise more!

We will be able to release the game for iOs and Android devices.

Most likely we will be able to release the Linux version of the game as well. It is hard to guarantee it now, as it fully depends on whether it would be possible to flawlessly port a Unity 3D game to Linux, and judging by their recent statement (see unity3d.com/linux), the possibility is very high.

The mysterious archive allows us to presume that there is a pet in the house. We only know the name of the creature but for some reason we think that it is a cat. This cat might be able to assist the hero in certain cases, though cats tend to act in a very independent manner - so the player is in for a surprise. We will be able to add the pet to the game if we raise more.


We will be able to add a female playable character... To be perfectly honest, we are not that much allowed to add any arbitrary element to the game - as we already informed you we do not invent this game from scratch - we rather conduct a research, an investigation of what has really happened. However, we consider this decision justified, if not essential, due to the fact that the archive does not definitely state that the hero is male. In this case, an additional, alternative interpretation of events would be of a great benefit to the project.

If we raise more, we will also be able to allow you to explore the Forest outside! We have all reasons to believe that the Forest is a crucial part of the puzzle, moreover, it might be the case that the Forest is the main character and a major vehicle of the whole story. Something really odd was happening in the thicket, something so weird that we are very reluctant to investigate the Forest any further. Nevertheless - we are positive that the key to the mystery is hidden somewhere among the trees - so you are welcome to search for it in the dark.


Ice-Pick <3
