Welcome to a story about a man weary of world and tired of its broken promises. A bitter young columnist learns from his doctor that he’s less than a day to live. But back home, he finds a capsule and a note: “This will keep you alive 24 extra hours. Come to Paris for more. We’ll find you.”
The hero takes Ambrose Bierce as his model, and “The Devil’s Dictionary” as his bible – the world, like his body, is rotting more each day. Now he gets to see what really matters. Sometimes you need a few clouds in order to see something in the proper light.
Day One is the second title announced through the unique crowdfunding-meets-distribution-meets-everything-in-between platform, Gamesplanet Lab where anyone can contribute towards the development’s funding. From the tongue-in-cheek trailer below it’s looking brilliant, and for an early trailer about a very early game it’s impressive just how intriguing it is. Day One is a “dark comedy about corruption, easy money, immorality, politics, death, DRM and other curses of our time”!
Keep an eye out here for more on this, we’ll be keeping a close eye on it over the coming weeks. If you want to get involved and help these guys out head to their Gamesplanet Lab page and drop a few quid their way.
