Former Cranberry designers honing indie adventure to Reperfection

While the future may look bleak for dtp's financially struggling Cranberry Production, a few former Cranberry designers have struck out on their own with an original new adventure called Reperfection.
Reperfection tells the tale of Ben Freeman, whose happy suburban life with his wife Sarah and son Danny comes to a tragic end when Sarah dies in a car accident. But perhaps it isn't the end after all, as Ben discovers he has the ability to alter the past by "jumping to the time Sarah wanted to leave the house and drive into that terrible accident. But the price for saving his beloved is higher than he could imagine..."
As seen in the game's introductory trailers, Reperfection is designed "in the style of an interactive graphic novel" using hand-drawn black-and-white comic panels, with sparse use of colour to denote key objects. Gameplay is classic point-and-click, and players must solve puzzles to "influence the events in the past and change the future reality."
Created at Tinnitus Games by Oliver Specht, Michael Holzapfel, and Anne von Vaszary, who collaborated previously on Black Mirror II and III and The Lost Chronicles of Zerzura, Reperfection is a planned five-episode series. Ben Freeman will be the protagonist throughout, and each installment will be self-contained with a small cliffhanger ending. The developers anticipate launching a new episode every 5-6 months.
Production on Volume 1 is well underway, with a targeted release for PC, iOS, and Android later this year. The PC version should appear on various portals, including Steam if enough people vote on the game as part of the Greenlight program.
