Faulty Apprentice One-Month before Release!
8 months ago – Mon, Oct 14, 2019 at 01:20:25 PM

  New LOCKDOWN DATE for backer surveys: October 31st, 2019

Greeting Apprentices! We have some good news and bad news to share... The Faulty Apprentice release is only four weeks away!

The bad news though, is Faulty Apprentice release is four weeks away XD But don't worry, we've got some ideas to help that four-week wait go by as quick as possible!

  1.  Tell your favorite Streamer/YouTuber to make a playthrough of Faulty Apprentice! If they can contact us, we may even be able to give them an early copy of the game!
     
  2.  Show Faulty Apprentice to a friend! Chatting with your friends is a fun way to pass time, but more importantly, you need to let them know which FA girl is your waifu so they don't get any ideas!
     
  3.  Get creative by drawing some fan art or writing a short poem for the Goth Guard! If you share it with us, you just might see it featured in-game! (=
     
  4.  Join the adventure... AGAIN! We will be sharing the Map to Adventure quest from the final days of our Kickstarter Campaign with the public. Follow us on Twitter to join the fun and help make decisions on where to go and what to do!

As soon as the game officially launches you will be notified and given instructions on how to obtain your copies! After release, our next priority will be distributing digital rewards. Then after all digital content has been completed, we will proceed to physical rewards! So be sure to keep an eye on your email even after release for more updates (=

Paramedium coming to Kickstarter!
8 months ago – Tue, Oct 01, 2019 at 01:32:17 AM

While Faulty Apprentice is being play-tested for release November 12, 2019, we want to take advantage of the Halloween season and reveal our next project, Paramedium! Coming October 1st!

  • EDT 3pm
  • CDT 2pm
  • PDT 12pm
  • CET 8pm
  • JST 4am

Here is the preview of the Kickstarter page: *We will be having special Early Bird deals so hit that "Remind me" button so you don't miss the launch! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dinmoney/1949809528?ref=4z6fp0&token=169f1a39 

Paramedium is a cyberpunk horror game where you take on the role of a Paramedium Cleric and dispense justice to otherworldly outlaws. Explore locations, investigate crimes, solve puzzles, and defend yourself against things that go bump in the night. However, you may find that the living can be just as dangerous as the dead...

Gameplay will be broken up into several categories: story, exploration, upgrading, and combat. Dialogue and character interactions will be presented in the character sprite and text box format of the original Paramedium demos. However, we want the full game to have a more interactive storytelling style by adding and in-depth exploration feature to each assignment. So now you will be freely walking from room to room, finding clues and solving mysteries.

While you may be forced to defend yourself often during your investigation of a location, you can expect a much larger threat (boss fight) at the end of each assignment. However, before that boss fight, if you have been diligently investigating, you will have a chance to upgrade an aspect of your Cleric and weapon.

Like the original Paramedium demos, combat will be high paced and vary depending on the nature of the assignment. However, you can still expect a face-to-face confrontation with your greatest fears!

In this dystopian future, not only are ghosts real, but they are a real problem. In order to combat the increasing threats of the paranormal, a mysterious and powerful organization was formed called the Paramedium Guild. While the Guild's invention and control of phantom technology make it a strong political and militarily power, the Guild has an even greater weapon, the Paramedium Cleric.

The Paramedium Cleric is an enforcement officer of the Guild, highly trained in weapon arts, close-quarters combat, and psycho defense. Their job is to asses and resolve paranormal threats peacefully if possible, but if necessary, by force.

Depending on a Cleric's skill and experience, they are Ranked C, B, A or S, with S being the highest rank and authorized to take on the highest threat level assignments. Assignments are given by the Paramedium Guild and ranked in threat levels from 1-99 depending on the predicted danger of the offending target(s).

Will you have what it takes to be a Paramedium Cleric? Play our game demo's here:

Paramedium 1: A noise in the Attic and Paramedium 2: Girl in the Road, features the initial concept of the world and introduction of the main characters. These small previews will give an idea of the art style, music, and storytelling that will be present in the completed game.
