Subsequence – A darkly humorous puzzle adventure game from a solo dev

Subsequence is a linear, single-player adventure game from Prague-based developer Zoemi Games. Solo developer Jakub Pilař tells us more.

Hi! This is Jakub Pilař from Prague, a passionate solo developer by night, regular job employee by day, and father of two kids. I’m working on Subsequence – a linear single player story driven 3D adventure game – and after almost seven years of development, I’m really happy to finally and officially announce my game!

Subsequence is like if Half-Life and Syberia had a baby. But with slightly lower sales. I don’t have false hopes and I don’t expect a hit that will break the internet, but I believe that the game will find its audience. I believe that players will forget about the world around them for a while and will enjoy every moment of playing. I see this as my mission.

I first installed Unity and Blender seven years ago, which was just the beginning of Subsequence’s development. A lot has changed since then. I’ve restarted the whole development twice, dropping everything and starting again from scratch. I also bought a new keyboard and mouse.

Subsequence is set in an underground research facility, a burning elevator shaft, a flooded supply tunnel, a toilet, and space. It is in the underground laboratories that, thanks to coincidence, the main heroine Vicky gets stuck. Things go bad and Vicky will have to fight for her life.

Her journey to safety will be lined with difficult obstacles, and she will be solving logical puzzles, exploring the environment, and collecting and using objects These form the main mechanics of the game. Players will experience moments of tension, but at the same time everything will be spiced with a careful dose of humor.

And most importantly, it will always be fun!

Subsequence is not finished yet, but I see a light at the end of the tunnel now, and the release is scheduled for the end of this year.
