Belgian duo Tale of Tales has released a new game called Bientôt l’été. The low-key science fiction affair has players walking on a beach, speaking French and playing chess, and has caused a worldwide shortage on accent marks.

Unusual MMO experience The Endless Forest has lost its museum backing and is in danger of closing down for good.

Tale of Tale’s award-winning interactive experience The Graveyard has been ported to Android. A free demo is available, but you’ll need to shell out $2 for the full experience, which is virtually identical but brings a random chance of seeing an alternate ending; the possibility of the second ending is kind of the point of the thing, so.
Tale of Tale’s oeuvre of atmospheric interactive experiences includes The Path, The Endless Forest, and most recently, Fatale.

Something new. We had a meeting this week and it was suggested there’s a better way of getting up all the little stories quickly. Could be better for everyone. Let’s see if it works.

If previous effort The Path was anything to go by, you’ll need to be the sort of person that at least believes they’re the sort of person that should be wearing a smoking jacket and propping up a large mantelpiece to enjoy it, but don’t let us stop you.
The Path was great, by the way. Where’s that blasted pipe?

Tentatively titled Fatale, to be published by Tale of Tales, has been announced for a October 5 release.
Because of this, ToT has decided to unveil Salome – the gal who wanted John the Baptist’s head on a plate. The character was designed, modeled and textured for the project by game artist Takayoshi Sato, of Silent Hill fame.
According to the press mailer:
“The character of Salome is complex because “Fatale” is designed to evoke all possible interpretations of her legend simultaneously. Salome is at once the mighty princess who mercilessly seduces men to their downfall and an innocent child on the brink of womanhood who is manipulated by the grown-ups that surround her. But she is also just a girl, a teenager who falls in love with the wrong man at the wrong time. She gets a first taste of the sweetness and the bitterness that we all know so well.
“And then there’s the Salome created by Oscar Wilde: a mad woman, lurking in the shadows of our souls, a selfish, passionate, willful creature who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.”
Full thing past the break.

Path developer Tale of Tales has announced its next project as Fatale, a games that threatens to be even more emo than its predecessor.
“Fatale is based on the legend of Salomé, who, 2000 years ago, demanded the head of John the Baptist as a reward for dancing for her stepfather, King Herod. Oscar Wilde’s 1891 interpretation of Salomé as a young woman in love with the prophet is the main inspiration for the project,” said a statement from Tale of Tales Auriea Harvey and Michael Samyn.
It’s out on October 5, the 78th anniversary of the first public performance of Salomé in English.
Be sure to have your smoking jacket freshly quilted. There’s more on IndieGames.

A playable demo of The Path, a modern retelling of the Little Red Riding Hood, has landed on FileFront.
In the full game, the player controls six sisters who are sent out, one by one, to bring their sickly grandmother a loaf of bread and a bottle of wine. The path to her house is straight and short and no obstacles prevent you from swiftly completing your mission.
But the forest is a whole other story. Creepy.
There has been a demo for quite some time up on Steam as well, but if you don’t have Steam, hit the link above.
