Secrets of Raetikon Spread Wings, Launches Alpha Funding

By Graham Smith on October 28th, 2013 at 8:00 pm.

Owls are the best.

Secrets of Rætikon is set in the alps and is a game about being a bird, flying, exploration, and pretty triangles. If I was to name this game, I’d have named it A Game About A Bird That Flies In The Triangular Alps. This is why I’m not an indie game designer.

The guys wot are indie game designers have launched an IndieGoGo campaign to help fund Secrets of Rætikon through to its finish line. The trailer below details the alpha you get instant access to if you choose to fund it.

Cor, it looks a bit lovely, doesn’t it?

As the trailer explains, the Raeti were a group of Alpine tribes, and the game is about discovering their secrets by manipulating strange contraptions. I’m personally more interested in the glimpses of editing tools seen towards the end though, but that’s because editing tools really dunk my biscuits.

    There aren’t enough awesome games just about flying about…in 3d.

    No mention of the dev, even in the tag? On account of that paper-rotatey-jumpey game, I’m a fan.

    EDIT: Hrm, indiegogo calls me a bot when I try to “follow” the campaign instead of greedily collecting my email address like every other site on the web. I’m not *such* a huge fan that I’ll find another system to remind myself with, so… no funding from me, likely. Oh well.

      That is unfortunate because we need every follower we can get. You can even get a reward without backing the project yourself. Please try again.

        I tried again with no success, but found out that rememberthemilk understands when I tell it to remind me “in 20 days”, so done and done. I’ll be checking in later. Best of luck with the campaign!

    This looks like a hippie game.

    That is pretty. The art style reminds me a bit of Brian Wildsmith.

    Games from Austria!

    I immediately liked these guys from their pitch and like the art style. Good luck gents!

      Thanks a lot! Doing our best, here. If you want to support us, please spread the word about our game. We’re still very much unknown.

    I’m wary of games that go for flexible funding on Indiegogo. Looks interesting though.

    • brokenrules says:

      Flexible funding means you get instant access to the alpha of the game. You shouldn’t be wary because there is no risk at all. You immediately get a game when you back. Just like on Steam Early Access.

    Google is paying 80$ per hour! Just work for few hours & spend more time with friends and family. Yesterday I bought a top of the range Lancia after having made $9458 this month. Its the most-financialy rewarding I’ve had. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it out http://goo.gl/w7ceUX

    I want my cheap social affiliation options, damnit!

    I’m still sore about Chasing Aurora never making it to PC. That trailer was so beautiful.

    Backed with a 10er. Good luck. Really like the artstyle and premise.

    to see how shy, withdrawn designers and programmers are dragged out in to the daylight to speak stilted pr-talk always breaks my heart

    THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FLY A STRANGE BIRD IN THE ALPS, LARRY.
