Vancouver solo independent developer Dark Acre Jack releases first commercial project.


'The Apartment', a first-person 'experience' that explores abandonment and decrepitude through the senses of a care home resident, had been released as part of Breakdance Mcfunkypant's #1GAM initiative.

Made over the course of the 4 weeks of January, 2013, 'The Apartment' is an experimental game built in Unity 3D for play via web browsers. The player takes on the role of a care home resident and is given reign to explore a small apartment, discovering clues and seeking resolution.

'The Apartment' utilizes Allegorithmic's Substance technology, enabling a high level of graphical fidelity at low overhead. The project is the culmination of over 27 months of full-time solo development by Jack and is also the first project to be offered for sale via patronage of Dark Acre.
