In 2013, Daniel Benmergui published a video showing some alpha gameplay from their Storyteller puzzle project. In 2018 he really bet on it, advertiser an association with Annapurna Interactive which meant, among other things, that "we * must * finish it." And now, in 2021, we are finally looking at the degree of arrival of a new trailer unveiled today during the Annapurna online showcase.
In Storyteller, you’re given a setting, a selection of characters, and a title, and you have to put them all together in a story that unfolds through a short storyboard. You can tell your story the way you want, remake classics from the past, or learn something completely new, as long as it ends properly: as a tragedy, a love story, or something more specific.
The gameplay of the new trailer looks essentially the same as in 2013, and even earlier – Storyteller's first video on the Benmergui channel dates back to 2012 – but the level of Polish has come a long way, and I hope that the variety and flexibility of storytelling options have also expanded considerably. I think it sounds like a lot of fun and I’m really looking forward to trying it out.
Unfortunately, despite the passage of time and the obvious progress that has been made, there is still no indication of the completion that Benmergui promised. However, there is a demo you can do to take a tour that is now available Steam.
