To Azimuth is a mystery adventure game that takes place in 1970's Alabama and is now on KickstarterCrowdfunding projects are starting to wind down as we enter the last few months of the year, but some awesome ones are still cropping up. Case in point, To Azimuth by Bracket Games just debuted and looks like an intriguing new narratively-focused title set in the 70s. The storyline follows a trio of siblings who grew up in Alabama. Brothers Nate and Eli took to the Vietnam War and served for three tours of duty before returning home. Nate, sick of Alabama, moved out. Eli remained as sister Susannah attempted to help reorient Eli into a normal, healthy life after returning home. As far as anyone could tell, it appeared that Eli was on his way to recovery when one day he disappears. With no clues, or help, it seems the source of his disappearance may be extraterrestrial in nature.

To Azimuth is a mystery adventure game that takes place in 1970's Alabama and is now on KickstarterPlayers must engage in the storyline to find Eli by playing as either Susannah or Nate. Gameplay works out where you effectively shape each sibling’s personality by the dialogue decisions you make. An interesting feature is that you can even export your playthrough with one character into that of the other. This effectively brings your presentation of a character in to play off against. You can even share your versions of the two protagonists with other players.

Beyond these intriguing aspects you’ve got a bit more expected adventure game puzzle design. You will search locations, find objects, and resolve problems with real-world logic. To Azimuth is set to release on Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. The Kickstarter campaign requires $20,000 to succeed. If you aren’t able to contribute you can still upvote the game on Steam Greenlight.

Glad to see the BL visual novel Sentimental Trickster was funded. How about those #Kickstarter stretch goals? https://t.co/AEU8LaeD6M - 4 years ago
