Game Pitch

Our goal is to create a game that will live in players' hearts as they experience it in the present and carry it with them in the future. In doing so, we hope to redefine games as a whole, much like the works of Michael Ende (Neverending Story, Momo) that inspired it.

Description

The place is U-chronia, a dream-like world that recalls hazy memories of the distant past. OU, a young boy, wakes up in a dried-up riverbed without any memories of his own. He meets Zarry, a flame-tailed opossum, who guides him on a journey to discover his past.

Throughout his quest, OU will meet many denizens of U-chronia:
The Saudage Specter, who haunts the boy;
The Gemini, who looks just like him;
And The Weeping Woman "La Llorona," who may lead him to tragedy.

Each of them will profoundly affect OU and how his story will end.

The world of “OU” is a beautiful, hand-drawn setting reminiscent of the illustrations in children's literature, accompanied by rustic guitars and folksy themes that evoke the nostalgia of simpler times.

Against this backdrop, the story of OU unfolds like an old picture book read before bedtime. What unfolds is "a story for someone."

Like Michael Ende's works, an OU is a challenge to the genre; an adventure game that calls forth the “something" that transports the player to a particular place of fantasy and reality.
