“Is there any other reality than the existing one? Is there any other independent world from our world?…Yes there is. And if this world is as cold and unbearable as the winter’s wind, what happens if we get in there…get in the Alter World…” – Abelix
Alter World was inspired by “The Dark Tower” by Stephen King. Abelix says his inspiration came from a quote in the first chapter of King’s book: “Go then, there are other worlds than these…”
The game opens with a scene about a boy and his dog both playing a fun game of catch. After a few throws and catches, a mysterious door fades into existence in front of his dog. The dog grabs the stick and curiously wonders into the unknown. As the protagonist of the story, you are tasked with entering this door, the Alter World, and rescuing man’s best friend.
Currently Alter World is set to be released roughly two months after it is Greenlit by Steam. For updates and more on Alter World, head on over to their Steam Greenlight page.
