Invisible Apartment - a cyberpunk ballad [girl hacker]

#1 Post by bunny.jessican » Fri May 09, 2014 2:51 pm

The Invisible Apartment is a cyberpunk visual novel by Milan Kazarka, illustrated by Camila Gormaz

UPDATE: the production was successful and we're now in the App Store :) I'll post to the finished works from now on.

You can find teasers, posters and all sorts of additional information on http://www.invisibleapartment.com

I have been writing down stories for a long time now, actually for as long as I can remember, but I never published anything. With the advancement of tablets and the fact that we can now collaborate with anyone all around the World I've set up a small production and got everything going.

The first release will be for free for the foreseeable future.

At the beginning the supported platform will be iPad, afterwards I'll add support for more devices.

If you like short visual novels including hacking, surveillance, AIs, discussions about where we're heading in today's society and you enjoy great illustrations, than you'll love the Invisible Apartment.

Sounds pretty interesting... And the art is really nice, too! I really like the main character design.

I love the atmosphere in the videos you've posted! Very suspenseful. I like that main character's design, too.

So far it seems to have a haunting, isolated vibe - the videos too make it seem like there will be a big focus on the environments themselves. Is there a big exploration element?

If you're releasing in June, I suppose I'll know soon enough. :)

It will offer a more personal look on cyberpunk themes and it does have a more 'deep' vibe. Unlike a lot of cyberpunk novels where the main focus is on what all the modern technology is and how cool it is I'm exploring how it affects one's life, relations and position in society.

It will be a short story - a short visual novel. I tried to do my first VN release short, compact, but make it a complete story :)
I guess I'm a perfectionist, so I rather do a short, but strong piece.

If people will like it than I'll continue with the production. The story and characters fit into a larger universe.

I'll be adding platforms on the go. In the long run I'd like to add some 3D, a lot of effects and possibly networking, so there is a lot of development. There are sharing features - you can mail the screen you're in directly from within the app & there is Facebook integration.

Thanks! Well I guess you just need to have passionate & motivated illustrators whom you give some space :D
If everyone working on a piece is aligned with the story and the characters, than the result has a soul.

I'm glad that there is interest in the iPad version. I believe that it's the best platform for reading.

Here's an actual photo of the novel running on an iPad mini.
