We here are at Pokey Toad are excited to announce our latest project, a collaboration with the author Obert Skye to creating an exciting new app that tells a brand new story direct to you! Obert Skye is best known for his Leven Thumps and Pillage series, which are definitely worth the read on a drowsy afternoon (or any time really).
The World of Obert Skye takes players to the island of Skye, where they must explore the mysterious Empulse Orphanage as they delve into its past for clues and hints about the whereabouts of several missing orphans, all of whom vanished many years prior to the players arrival. The orphanage itself is bettered and abandoned, but there’s something more at work as Obert explores his old home.
One of the highlights of this project is Obert’s Journal. From this journal, players will be able to get hints about the game and learn more about the world around them as it’s updated regularly by Obert Skye himself. The World of Obert Skye is a living, breathing story that players will be able to participate in as they help to solve the mysteries around them.
The game is episodic in nature, with each new room unlocking new puzzles and secrets to uncover. World of Obert Skye will be available both on iOS and Android, as well as online via the Unity web player.
Stay tuned for more, and be sure to follow us for more updates on this, and other exciting projects!
