Song of Seven successfully Kickstarted, coming to Wii U

Earlier today the Song of Seven Kickstarter was successfully funded so that the team at Enlighted Games can create the first chapter. If you’re unfamiliar with the project, it’s a story-driven character game similar to some of Double Fine’s productions like Grim Fandango and Broken Age. The game follows the protagonist through a story that can develop in several different ways thanks to conversation trees that result in different outcomes.

As for the gameplay, there will be puzles and riddles, all set along a unique path. According to the game’s developers, Song of Seven is designed to be played like the game version of a short-story, in which each chapter is self-contained, but it also links together through an overarching story. The description sounds very similar to what Telltale Games does with its series of video games, releasing them across five episodes for a full “season” of a game.

The first chapter of Song of Seven begins in an isolated village, where the main character meets Emma, a young inventor. The two venture off together and stumble into ancient ruins of a forgotten temple. Once inside, the doors shut behind them, so it’s up to the player to guide the duo through several puzzles and challenges in order to help them escape.

Current estimates put the game as being ready by February 2016, but if we know anything from past Kickstarter projects its that there will always be some unforseen delay. Either way, we’re happy to see something so creative get the backing it deserves and I’ll personally be watching this project closely as it matures.
