The Dispersio saga launches on the App Store
All of you who follow TMA know I’m a sucker for a good point-and-click adventure game and have a special place in my heart for any dev team that creates an original title for the iDevice. Well, my heart just got a little more crowded thanks to the Italian indie team Footprint, who recently releasedÂ Dispersio: Start ENG and Dispersio Alone Lite ENG. Dispersio is a dark graphical novel/ adventure made in an original comic style. Your aunt is dying and you travel to visit her in the hospital. Once there, however, you are dragged into a mysterious event and wake almost 20 years later, only to find the world around you barren of life.
This is the story that is told in the Dispersio: Start ENG chapter of the saga (available for $0.99), with the game being essentially an interactive comic book with a few choices that do not influence the outcome, but allow you to witness several different sides of the story. Dispersio Alone Lite ENG is a free teaser of the second chapter of the series, where the story starts to pick up a bit and you actually get to wander around and Â do some adventuring. The developers promise to release the full version of chapter two soon and update the prologue one with new gameplay and additional content.
I can tell you this is a series I will definitely keep my eyes on. The artstyle is great and the story is definitely off to a nice start.
