Colorfiction Releases Moody New Trailer for Ode to a Moon



Ode to a Moon, Colorfiction

Colorfiction, the experimental one-man studio behind titles such as 0°N 0°W, has released a trailer for its upcoming project Ode to a Moon.

Unlike the genre-defying efforts of its previous releases, Ode to a Moon looks to have a little more narrative focus. The studio is attempting to blend its talents for left-field visuals with horror, along with a more lucid story. The project was officially announced on the studio’s Twitter back in August, but now has a full trailer to enjoy.

Players assume the role of a journalist who is tasked with covering a historic rural fall festival. Whilst covering the town’s festival, the quiet hamlet turns into madness. Instead of the genre’s usual reliance on jump scares, Ode to a Moon will rely on mood and atmosphere (the game will be more Silent Hill than, say, Outlast).

The game will feature narration and voice memos for plot points, as opposed to Colorfiction’s previous reliance on visual cues. Taking inspiration from its previous title Nightline, Colorfiction appears to be finally ready to embrace a little bit of lucidity.

The trailer, embedded below, still has the hypnagogic qualities the studio is known for, albeit with more recognisable architectural features. The cosmic horror will launch sometime in 2019. Before then, be sure to bookmark Ode to a Moon‘s website for updates, and check out OnlySP on FacebookTwitter, and YouTube for the best in single-player.


LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Technology Will Deliver a ‘Brand New Way to Explore the Entire Saga’

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will benefit from modern technological capabilities leading to a whole new project rather than just remastering older episodes.

In an interview with, James McCloughlin game director at TT Games discussed the studio’s technological progress regarding game design compared to 15 years ago. McCloughlin confirmed that instead of remastering episodes one to six, the studio is developing a whole new experience to align with current player standards.

“We wanted to create a new Star Wars game which was designed without the technical restrictions of the older games—mainly episodes one to six—and since then we have learned so much as a studio.” He continued, “The older Star Wars games were great for that generation of gamers, but now players expect and need a lot more freedom in their play. With this game we hope to give players a brand new way to explore and enjoy the entire saga.”

One of the main features expected to dramatically change will be the size and scope of episodes one to six. McLoughlin highlights that player freedom is one of the biggest expectations of gamers and cited his experience working on Shadow of Mordor, Shadow of War, and the Batman Arkham series.

“Freedom is a massive part of modern games—since the days of the cantina [in the early Lego Star Wars games], we have designed and developed over-world spaces from Middle Earth to Gotham City all with different challenges and hurdles to overcome. This game should be an amalgamation of all of what we have learned so far as a studio.”

Furthermore McLoughlin explained that TT Games monitors consumer reception to its games, so after The Skywalker Saga is released the studio will consistently evaluate players’ reactions (both good and bad): “We now have a greater toolset to evaluate play through analytics and user testing that just wasn’t as readily available 15 years ago,” he explained. “We can now very easily target sectors of play and enhance the areas we know get the most traffic, to help make the entire experience great from start to finish.”

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is set to release in 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. OnlySP’s Mike Cripe got to see the game in action at E3, finding that it may yet be as good as the highly anticipated Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
