8 (cancelled) Tale of Tales 2009

While Beauty sleeps... A young girl gets trapped in a luxurious palace surrounded by a thick forest. Everyone in the palace is asleep. They should have woken up by now. The Prince should have come by now. But the Princess is in no condition to meet him. Assisted by a Wicked Fairy out for revenge, eight unworthy princes have penetrated the forest and disrupted the magic that once protected the sleeping court. The power of the spell is fading. The forest branches are growing. The palace walls are crumbling. “8” is a poetic entertainment title that offers peaceful and playful non-linear interaction with a continuously evolving immersive environment and a mysterious and charming autonomous character. Together with a mysterious magical girl, you discover what happened in a sleeping palace lost in time and find a way to revive its splendor. This was the first project (started in 2002 and abandoned in 2009) of the developer that later made odd idiosyncratic games such as Fatale, The Path, The Graveyard and Sunset. The story was inspired by various retellings of the classic tale, Sleeping Beauty. It was to be a part of a series of games, each based on a classic fairy tale and with a number as its title. Plans for a survival-horror game based on Little Red Riding Hood was to be called 144 but it later became The Path. Though the game remains unfinished, a demo exists of The Formal Dining Room area.
