Aedo Episodes - Can you hear that distant voice?

UPDATE:
the game is in open beta: Request Access!!

Hello, I'm trying to ship my first game!



Aedo Episodes is an adventure game with logic and puzzle elements
www.nonostante.io
Facebook page
Twitter: @AedoEpisodes



The game will feature non-original art as I'm just a coder and in this first attempt, I want to focus on gameplay and storytelling.
Hoping to get some good advice and maybe a future partner(s).
I'm a coder, I can't do art, so I focused on experimental concepts I can handle.

Concept
The game is a story, a story already happened. You will follow the hero life through the eyes of the Aedo (means storyteller) as he's writing down the events. Because the story already happened, you have no choices. For example, the hero moves automatically following a predefined path, that is the real path he took during the adventure. You cannot die, but you just mismatch the story progress.

Gameplay
The game features a mix of adventure action and logic with puzzles and enigma. You have to interact with the environment. The hero stands steady at the beginning of each level. You have to touch the hero to start, this means, you are ready to live what the Aedo is telling about how the level happened.

Screenshots/Gifs



Development
The game is developed in javascript using cocos2d-js framework for the rendering and apache cordova to target multiple platforms. The game will be available for iOS, Android, WindowsPhone.

The game is in open beta: Request Access!
(warning: with the toucharchade ios app, the link doesn't work, you cant select your country, you should use the browser!)

You can follow the development on Twitter or Facebook

Questions/Feedbacks
What you think about the game?
Do you like the concept/gameplay? Ask me, if I put it not clearly.

You can watch the Video Trailer.

Thanks

I like what this seems to be. Environmental puzzles threaded together in a JRPG world. I think it's quite a clever concept that hasn't been done like this before, will be following this thread!

Many thanks! Glad you like the idea.
Now the game is in alpha, a bit rough, but if you want I can give you a super secret access to try it a little bit.
Let me know.

Some updates about the game mechanics.

During the game the hero will met some people and interact with them.
Usually there are some puzzle/enigma to solve.

Looks sweet! Seems like there are a nice variety of puzzles (even if I can't tell from the screenshots how those ones work).
I'd definitely love the super secret access if it's possible, and would be glad to give feedback

I'm packaging all and publishing to my server.
Because weekend started, I'll give you access next week.

Just a little gif of a sidequest interaction
Watch carefully... : )

I'm sorry, only the country? The OS choice works?
What device/browser are you using?

Edit:
The toucharchade ios app has a bug on list selection! So you should use the browser! Thanks!
