Go against all odds with Lev, the handicapped boy, in this twistedly beautiful puzzle adventure game.

Have you ever felt that humans are so mundane because we have no magic? Have you envied the magical creatures and their abilities to control the elements of nature? We believe you do, and that is how Lev feels about himself, too. Being the only Human living in a society of magical creatures, Lev, lives his life as an outcast and has no friend but Raina. When Raina disappeared, Lev wasted no time to find her… into the forbidden forest.

We aim to tell a heartwarming story and reveal a magical world through our game, a medium to deliver a powerful narrative. How would a boy react through the loss of his loved one and eventually gain confidence with his new power? Could he embrace the truth behind the catastrophe that changes his life? You will find it on Winterflame.

Winterflame is a side-scrolling puzzle adventure game with at least 50 puzzles in 5 different areas and more than 20 magic combinations to overcome them. As you go further in the adventure, you will develop your magic skills to fight stronger enemies and solve more complicated puzzles.

We are excited to show people the magical environment that exist in the world of Vandaria through puzzles. The wonders of finding a bizarre yet beautiful environment and how those objects react to you and your abilities.

The puzzles that you will get in your way are extraordinary. The ever-increasing complexity of the puzzles will not let you down in the fun department, because we will have at least four kinds of puzzles: physics-based puzzles, color-based puzzles, music-based puzzles, and math puzzles.

Magic is available to you once you have acquired a special gauntlet at the beginning of the game. It will grant you the abilities to use magical abilities. But you cannot take them for granted; you will have to earn it by solving certain puzzles.

The full release of Winterflame: The Other Side will be available for download on Windows &Mac platform (PC)

Four completely different game mechanics that bend logic and nature laws.

——————————————————————————————–

Five chapters in five different areas that tell Lev’s journey in distinct themes and dramatic sequences.

Dramatic character changes, through special animated features of the character on each chapter, that will immerse you in the story. Staven, our concept artist have created different environments in Lev’s journey. Visually unique and rich in symbolism, environment design in Winterflame project is a very vital component; it plays a significant role in Lev’s character development as the story goes.

Two mini-games, parts of the adventure, that provide unique user experience in the journey.

A magical landscape that will change our perspective of the world by offering you a way to see life in god’s perspective.

The demo available for Windows and Mac.

You are playing as Lev, a Human boy who was taught that people like Raina are evil magical race. This precept among Humans seemed to be confirmed when the their army invaded your city, inflicting on you two dire losses at once: your family and your left hand. Yet the ones who helped you and took you under their wings were a family of their kind. Raina, the daughter in the family, had never been but patient with your recovery and adaptation in your new life. It never mattered to you that you never fit in, that somehow other magical people still gave you goosebumps and reminded you of the dreadful invasion, as long as Raina was by your side. But Raina has gone, swallowed by the growing darkness inside the Forbidden Forest. Her people decided to wait and consult the silent gods, whereas you know you might lose her forever if you do not act NOW.

You have to venture into the Forest, the Ruins, the Heights, the Waterarc, and the Cradle of Life–all of which have intricate puzzles to hold off anyone who dares to enter. In this journey, you will find magic in the most unlikely place; You will find gods’ hand in the least expected form.

Now that all hope is in your hand, will you be strong enough to bring Raina back against all odds?

A forbidden forest. Strange occurrences are likely to happen, trees disappear and reappear seemingly at will, and strange floras disguise themselves as something else. Still, the forest has a lot of useful herbs and plants, so some brave herbalists still visit the place from time to time. And there’s an untold secret beyond the giant trees.

The Mysterious Place

 will unlock when we are reaching 500 backers

The word “Artoncode” comes from 3 words: “Art”, “On”, and “Code”. As the name goes, we believe that video game is a product where Art is imprinted on the top of coding line. Hence, here we are Artoncode Indonesia, an innovative Indonesian-based game studio that focuses on the creation of high quality games. We see Winterflame as an exciting challenge to make the game of the year.

Risks and challenges

Thank you for reading through our presentation up to this point. It is time for us to show you the risks and challenges that this project has.

Designing the puzzles is definitely our biggest challenge. Every puzzle is designed and tested through extensive design changes and days of testing before even the art assets are properly produced. This leads to a massive amount of works in each milestone for the artists and programmers to bring everything into polish state.

However, Winterflame has gone through numerous prototyping in the last 6 months to make sure that we have covered most of our challenges on the level design stage. We’ll always keep you updated.
