As one of the founders of Lyorah Studios, a micro entertainment studio, I would like to introduce "The Girl Who Sold the World" to you.
"The Girl Who Sold the World" is an audio adventure game that aims to provide a complete gaming experience with almost any visuals.
Just an exciting story, amplified by pure and fascinating sound, that allows your imagination to run wild.
Your goal is to help the main protagonist Frances, a 16-year old girl, survive the strange world she inhabits and discover the truth about who she really is.
Basically, you plug in your head phones, connect with the messenger called Skyler and there you are — right in the middle of Frances Reeds’ journey.
She wakes up in a strange world she doesn’t understand — yet.
She lost her memory, she lost her family — she lost everything.
And you have the opportunity to accompany her in real-time, give her advice and make important decisions which are going to lead onto different paths.
You’ll have to be courageous to take away her fears.
You’ll have to share your intellect to help her overcome obstacles and solve puzzles.
You’ll have to show empathy to let your friendship grow.
And then, somewhere and sometime, you and Frances are going to reveal the truth behind all the things that happened but didn’t make sense at all.
"The Girl Who Sold the World" will be told in seven chapters, split into 20 sub chapters of similar length, plus three shorter flashbacks (approximately 1/3 of the regular length), which are kind of prequels, telling the back story. The first chapter titled "The Loss" already hit the stores.

Launch Promo ends on August 18th - so don't hesitate!
Since we have been working on this project for almost one and a half years now, developing it from scratch, we were extremely curious how a bigger crowd will respond to this new form of adventure gaming.
This is some of the feedback we would like to share with you:
"I think this game will soon be very popular. It's probably the first audio game which is so immersive with such a quality! You have to give it a try! Frances (the teenager that you help during the game) is very charming, you won't regret the meeting!" - Florent M.
Also, a lot of visually impaired and blind people reached out to us, requesting to make this adventure accessible also to their community.
We are very sorry that we couldn't achieve this at launch, as the development of chapter one ate up all of our budgets (micro by any means).
We made this our goal for the future.
But, as we set our standards high, we decided that it wouldn't be enough to just have a voice over superimposed.
We want something more. Something equal in regards to immersion and game experience.
We call that game play experience EAR-MODE because regardless of whether you have no sight or just don't feel like looking on the screen, you'll be able to focus on your very own "mental cinema" and immerse in the story completely.
We already started a discussion on this topic (https://applevis.com/forum/ios-gaming/g … d-ear-mode), as we want to involve those who should benefit the most of it in the process of developing it. You are welcome to join.
If you want to know more about us and this project, please visit our website www.thegirlwhosoldtheworld.com or FB page (@LyorahStudios) for further information, or follow our Twitter @LyorahStudios.
Of course, I would be happy hearing from you personally, too.
Should you have any questions feel free to drop me a line.
I'd be glad to help.
All the best,
