„During times of universal conformity, differing from others become a revolutionary act.“
Patternopolis needs YOU
Patternopolis is terrorised by Ministry of Well-being which forces everybody to think, speak and look the same. Be the hero bringing change by destroying the propaganda symbols and hide among the crowds from spies and policemen that are chasing you!
At the beginning we wanted to develop a game with story resembling 1984 by George Orwell, but set in alternative history resembling Victorian Era. Soon after we simplify a bit our game mechanics due to limited time that we have for finishing the prototype. We have kept our stealth and run core and the story about Citizen A who rose against the system and the Minister of Well-being is still there. Because we know he will be a legend among the uprising movement one day...
Who are we
WitchCat is not a common gamedev studio. We are a bunch of university outlaws, gang of rebel programmers, screenwriters and artists. We have special abilities. Yes. Martin is an Aikido master, Michal is an untrackable lonely ranger, Kaťa is promising costume designer, Adolfo is a flamengo legend from Malaga and Dave is an old-school woodstock rocker.
We just fit wit each other.
