Verne: The Shape of Fantasy is a pixel art narrative experience based on the life and works of Jules Verne, which merges exploration, puzzles and interactive dialogues with the imagery of one of the most famous science fiction and adventure writers.
In an alternative 1888, the war against the dreadful Nation is devastating the world of Hemera. Aboard the mighty Nautilus, Jules Verne, Captain Nemo and his courageous crew struggle, chased by a relentless enemy, to get hold of a mysterious formidable energy, capable of changing the course of history: the Flame of Hephaestus, source of the power of Atlantis and also, of her fateful destruction.
In his journey, Verne will not only discover wonders and mysteries, but also face a dark and powerful force that is trying to eradicate imagination across Hemera… and inside his own mind.
About the company: Gametopia
We are Gametopia, a game development studio of 4 persons located in Spain and Colombia. For more than ten years, we have been passionately imagining and creating educational and awareness-raising projects, with games such as The Journey of Elisa, which helps to understand better the needs and characteristics of people with Asperger's Syndrome, Marrow Transplant, focused on children who are about to undergo a marrow transplant, and Allan Poe's Nightmare, a frantic arcade that allows people to get closer to literature and to discover or re-discover the works of a great author like Edgar Allan Poe.
We have generated and improved a nimble networking remote structure that has allowed us to create the games we want with the talents we love, spread through different countries and cultures. Currently, we are working on our most exciting and ambitious project as a studio: Verne: The Shape of Fantasy, a pixel art adventure game based on the life and works of Jules Verne, which merges gameplay inspired by old-school graphic adventures that we love, with the imagery of one of the most famous science fiction and adventure writers. This game is our tribute to him, who made us enjoy his works so much when we were kids.
