The Isle Tide Hotel resurrects a dead genre, showing that now is the best time for an FMV game.
You can view the announcement and trailer below:
The Isle Tide Hotel is a live-action, interactive mystery movie about an absent father who must rescue his teenage daughter from an eclectic cult before their final night at the Isle Tide Hotel. Think a British Twin Peaks with a Wes Anderson aesthetic! Or, if that doesn’t convince you, how about a grittier Knives Out? There’s so much to explore and discover about The Isle Tide Hotel that one playthrough won’t get close to telling the whole story.
Why is your daughter estranged in the first place? Will you join the cult to save her? How will you interact with the bizarre people you meet? Each playthrough of The Isle Tide Hotel’s branching narrative will be completely different, with seven main endings in your mission to rescue the daughter you’ve never met. Just remember… don’t break the Etiquettes.
Created by brother-sister director-producer combo Harry and Grace Chadwick of Interflix Media, the themes of The Isle Tide Hotel draw on the transformational journey of parenthood and the unique paths that can be taken when dealing with family dynamics.
If you enjoy The Isle Tide Hotel, we’d be delighted to organise an interview with Harry and Grace to delve deeper into the creation of the game, the challenge and excitement of working with great UK actors from shows like Game of Thrones and Call the Midwife, and any other topic inspired by The Isle Tide Hotel. No spoilers here!
It’s Wales Interactive’s biggest project yet. Every decision affects the story and you’ll have to keep an eye out for clues – it’s on you if you miss something important.
