Lucas Pope (who released the excellent Papers, Please back in 2013) just tweeted that his new game, Return of the Obra Dinn, is finished after four and a half years of development.
Return of the Obra Dinn is a pixelated monochrome-adventure made in Unity and its creator writes: "After four and a half long years, "Return of the Obra Dinn" is finally done enough to call. October 18th, PC+Mac, $19.99".
Check out the description of the game below, and after that we've got our own interview with Pope, which should give you even more insight into the game and what it's all about.
"In 1802, the merchant ship "Obra Dinn" set out from London for the Orient with over 200 tons of trade goods. Six months later it hadn't met its rendezvous point at the Cape of Good Hope and was declared lost at sea. Early this morning of October 14th, 1807, the Obra Dinn drifted into port with sails damaged and no visible crew. As insurance adjustor for the East India Company's London Office, find means to board the ship and recover the Crew Muster Roll book for assessment."
