Richard & Alice is coming to Steam, following a successful initial release and approval on Greenlight. A new trailer has been released to mark the occasion.
The title comes from Starbound scribe Ashton Raze and indie PR Lewis Denby. It follows Richard and Alice as they talk in prison, and through their tales players will start to see the post-apocalyptic world outside. and come to understand the measures people are taking to survive. The Steam release will feature achievements, trading cards, badges and emotes.
Lewis Denby from developer Owl Cave said of the Steam release, “It’s a great thing to see Richard & Alice heading for Steam. This is a game we decided to make because we wanted to explore character stories in video games, and the original plan was for a small free game we could bash out and move on from. That we’re here now, writing quotes for the Steam release PR campaign, is quite something!”
Starbound writer Ashton Raze added, “I am very excited to see Richard & Alice on Steam, because it meant I got to design trading cards and emotes. This was a lifelong dream of mine, and finally that dream became a reality. The game being on Steam in itself is exciting but TRADING CARDS! Seriously. The achievements were right fun too. You’ll not find things like this in a novel.”
A release date has yet to be confirmed, but we’ll update you once it drops.
