Seems to be going for a decent look and the features list has a few interesting items, however disinclined I am toward anything 2.5D these days or that describes itself as a "typical point click adventure game". One to keep an eye half-open towards.

They have a typo in the title.

I, as well, might keep one eye half open for this one.

That's not a typo, it's a different language. I wonder if they thought it just sounded cool or if there's a reason for it.

I must say: nice website and great concept art. Is anything more known about this project? I'm really curious to see ingame screenshots as this seems promising.

I agree, looks promising, but agree with Junkface, I tend to want to see 3D+ these days after seeing some of the recent 2D+ games like Keepsake,

but it does look nice and promising. Hope they keep going.

Hello everybody! I guess some people are sleeping here instead of collecting information. According to this: http://www.centauriproduction.com/alternativa.php
Alternativa will be published IN ENGLISH, in the course of october (yes, this month) through STEAM. There are also more screenshots in there. There are false information on adventure gamers concerning the developer and publisher. Also I found 2 trailers:

Yeah, that's us, all we do is sleep around here.

Glad to see the game didn't disappear after all.

Followed this link. In the third text passage on this page it says:
Quote
And it's these goals that the heroes of Alternativa try to achieve in the sequel which develops directly from the first part without forcing the player to know all the previously revealed facts.
End Quote

I don´t understand what they mean with sequel. Is this game a sequal or do they plan to do a sequal?

Wow I guess I overlooked that part before. But it seems to me that immediately after releasing Alternativa they will start working on a sequel. Maybe they already did because I think Alternativa is already out in Czech Republic. I'm not sure though.

This looks really interesting!
The woman's voice is annoying though, unless it's supposed to be a tiny girl or a woman who's got a mental illness.

*shrug*

Really looking forward to it!

Been following this game for ages now, good to see its finally getting a release but for some reason I don't see it coming out this month. I hope I'm proven wrong.

It could refer to the fact that the game is played in multiple parts. The site says this:
Quote:
Alternativa won't come across to players as one long story, but rather as a number of shorter, miscellaneous stories that present people's lives and problems in situations which completely differ from what we can imagine today.
Just a guess though. The text seems translated as well, sequel might not have been what they really meant.
