Triptych brings players through a Lovecraftian inspired tale of two brothers, and their history in the occult and esoteric; of cosmic horror, and an Elder God worshiped by a sect of vicious Necromancers. A lost civilization of Sarcon cursed since time immemorial, and themes such as predestination, fatalism and nihilism are touched upon in a story that caters to fans of "Weird Fiction".
Triptych is developed and lead by C-zom, and written by Dark Craft Studios. Excruciating detail through multiple years of development is being poured into the level design, games design, and writing department in order to establish a story of utmost maturity and thematic accuracy.
Triptych was conceived by Glenn Winkelmann Jr (C-zom), author of The Worry of Newport. He was the Lead Writer behind the penning of Triptych, with Ian Wiese (Dr. Doozer, primarily of VA fame) brought on board about midway through as Secondary/Assistant Writer to help further conceptualize and assist in growing the story, as well as to assist rewriting countless drafts. The protracted writing cycle took over a year, with numerous minor and major revisions credited to Seaglass and Maarten Basjes as well, resulting in a finished product numbering over 30 pages of written and spoken material.
Every square inch of the level design is done entirely by Glenn Winkelmann Jr. (C-zom), as well as games design and programming. In this vein it is, technically, a solo project, but it is being 'published' by his group at Dark Craft Studios for cataloging purposes.
Triptych's protracted writing cycle was lead by C-zom in conception and actual writing, storyboard assistance and construction, creative think tanking, and varied contributions by Ian Wiese. Seaglass and Maarten Basjes have contributed immense revisions and redrafts of whole or minor portions of the script as dual editors, resulting in a finished product numbering over 50 pages of written and spoken word.
Despite being 'published' by Dark Craft Studios, it is actually a solo project by C-zom.
