Knock Knock is the name of the new game by Icepick Lodge, of Pathologic, The Void and Cargo fame.

Today they bring us a Kickstarter to help finish the development of their new game, Knock-Knock.

According to the CEO of Icepick Lodge they were asked to develop this game and I now quote from Nikolay Dybowski:

In late November, 2011, a strange and troubling event has happened to our studio. We have received an anonymous e-mail which suggested that we should produce some "unconventional" game based upon the materials attached to the letter. Such offers are a dime a dozen and most of the time they barely deserve any attention at all, however, this one seemed quite different.

The attachment contained a set of 19 files added to an archive titled "lestplay". The files (snippets of text, scraps of audio recording, video footage fragments) as well as the style and wording of the message itself appeared to be rather disturbing. The surface examination did not reveal anything straightforwardly terrifying, yet we could not escape the feeling that something truly sinister was lurking underneath.

The stranger was begging us to complete the project he has started, yet he also made us well aware of the risk we took as the proposed ludic situation would potentially explain what calamity befell whoever has compiled the ominous archive, thus urging ourselves to meet the same fate.

Help them to fulfil this stranger dream and project. Help Icepick Lodge finishing what they started before they loose the last remaining sanity they have.

It looks great! Sounds like it will be easy to play but difficult to survive.

I love how you're always there to post something by Ice Pick Lodge (you've got the most wiki points for the void afaik)

it seems a little silly, I never did like cargo and was hoping they'd do something more similar to void or pathologic. oh well!

Yeah, I'm a big fan of their work and I love to see their vision come to fruition so whenever I can help spread the word on the projects I will. :)

I have 4 copies of The Void :D

Just wanted to point out that it means that the game will cost $10 when it is released. With backing it at Kickstarter you can get it at half price which is $5. :P

Backed it, I love the developer even though I still haven't finished and am so nervous when playing The Void.

Knock-Knock has been funded!

There is still time to reach other goals if people keep donating, spread the word.

#12 Posted by AssInAss (2749 posts) -

Oh wow, that's good they've attained independence.

Let's just hope it's not as buggy as The Void. Oh what am I talking about, it's a Russian game! Drew + Dave + Vinny QL, yes please.

Knock-Knock has been officialy funded and the Kickstarter is over.
