    Knee Deep: Stage play meets computer game

    I'm Wes Platt, writer/designer for Prologue Games. We've launched two of three acts of a swamp noir theater play inside a computer game - called Knee Deep - on Steam. The third act is expected to release in Q1 2016.


    Knee Deep isn't a traditional adventure game with inventory management, random wandering, and pixel hunting. It's dialogue-driven and all about the choices you make as our troubled protagonists - a quirky blogger, a cynical private investigator, and a print reporter with potential rage issues. You're part director, part writer, part star of the show! Everything takes place in the strange little Florida tourist trap of Cypress Knee that's suddenly in the media spotlight because of the curious death of a Hollywood has-been.





    Features include:


    • Varied dialogue options
    • Unique art style and sound design
    • Original bluesy music from SkewSound
    • Voice acting
    • Puzzles
    • News reporting mini-games

    Knee Deep: http://store.steampowered.com/app/371300/

    It’s almost time for the final curtain call of Knee Deep. The third act of this theatrical swamp noir adventure takes the stage on Steam for PC/Mac/Linux on March 8.

    During the first two acts, our players have guided blogger Romana Teague, newspaper reporter Jack Bellet, and private investigator K.C. Gaddis through a murky maze of conspiracy, betrayal, and murder in the backwater Florida town of Cypress Knee.


    In Act 3: Boomtown, it’s time for our unlikely heroes to get to the truth deep in the wilds of Cypress Swamp, with help from the few friends they’ve got left. You’ll help them get to the bottom of the mystery that’s been building since a janitor found a dead man dangling from the tower at Chief Roadside’s. Everything comes down to these final hours.


    Maybe you’re just finding out about Knee Deep. Maybe you’ve heard of it, but wanted to wait until all three acts launched before taking the plunge. Either way, now’s a great time to grab the game.


    Pick up Knee Deep now at the $14.99 price on Steam to get the Acts 1 and 2 (Wonderland and Festival) and Boomtown’s yours free as an update on launch day. That early adopter price climbs to $19.99 after the story’s conclusion in Act 3 is released on March 8.


    Delve into a choice-driven narrative adventure that’s heavy on the noir, a cross between “Twin Peaks” and “True Detective,” with flawed central characters, theatrical presentation, and distinctive art style.


    Game features:


    * Dialogue-driven choices
    * Story-centric puzzles
    * Moody soundtrack by SkewSound
    * Voice acting coordinated by Krash Creative, starring Arielle DeLisle, George Washington III, and Dan Osborne.


    Prologue Games is a small indie game development company based in Durham, N.C. We launched the first act of Knee Deep in July 2015. Act 2 launched in November. We’ve taken the first two acts to trade shows such as EGX Rezzed and EGX 2015, with strong positive critical response.

    Our Knee Deep heroes are taking a road trip to San Antonio at the end of the month.

    We’re taking a demo of Act 3: Boomtown to PAX South from Jan. 29-31. We can’t wait to give fans a glimpse at the unexpected directions the game’s going before this final installment sees release on March 8.

    If you get a chance, join Romana Teague, Jack Bellet, K.C. Gaddis, and friends as they mess with Texas! Stop by our booth and say hello.

    Connect with producer/director Colin Dwan on Twitter at @colindwan, lead writer/designer Wes Platt at @DougPiranha, and our official company account, @PrologueGames.

    Thanks for the feedback! We definitely set out to make it look and feel distinctive (while keeping some of the familiar trappings of a point-and-click adventure).

    Before SkewSound developed the signature sound of Knee Deep, these songs helped inspire the swamp noir game's narrative: http://steamcommunity.com/gid/103582...44751369043942
