Peace Island is an open-world, story-driven adventure game, currently under development
for the PC, Mac, and Oculus VR system.
A mix of science fiction, alternative history, and mystery – the game’s story unfolds from the perspective of the nine cats who call the island home, when they wake up to find their human companions gone.
“Peace Island” will be (as the name might imply,) a non-violent interactive story which will focus on discovery, atmosphere, and exploration, rather than combat. The player will have the opportunity to experience multiple divergent storylines, as they approach the ultimate decision:
“Are the humans worth bringing back?”
At the start of the game, you will have free access to the entirety of the game world, and from a cat’s point of view, things very well might be idyllic…
Perhaps you want nothing more than to lie in the sun, hunt a few bugs, and maybe sneak through the window of the seafood shop down on the waterfront for a quick bite.
Perhaps you’ll want to explore the island- you never know who you might meet, or what you’ll find.
Perhaps you will assist another island cat in their search for what happened to the humans, or befriend another cat who hopes they never return.
Every step you take will determine the fate of humanity, and the future of life on earth.
Some of the other animals you meet on the island might not be as welcoming as you would like- gain their confidence to unlock new side quests, and ensure safe passage through their lands.
FORGET ABOUT CHASING MICE!
There’s an invasive, destructive species on the island that needs to be contained, but also just might be the key to everyone’s survival…
Gain entrance to dozens of buildings, to uncover the secrets of Peace Island. Some buildings are easier to get into, than others… There are scores of unique, hand-crafted interiors, loaded with detail, side quests, and clues that might help you along the way.
The game world of Peace Island is HUGE – containing no less than four major settlements, along with dozens of other locations. The majority of the island’s structures will be accessible, as well – these will include homes, shops, abandoned ruins, museums, and some that I don’t even want to disclose here (SPOILERS…)
The secrets of the humans, through the documents and artifacts left behind. A unique, alternate-history timeline covering over 200 years.
Gain the confidence of the other animals on Peace Island – it’s good to have friends, in tough times.
All nine cats must work together to secure a future for themselves, and their world.
Peace Island is also a personal homage to the beauty of Maine Islands, and to the cats who I have been lucky enough to meet and share my life with.
