Description

Albert+Zoe is an electro-fantasy narrative rhythm game about relationship building, emotions, and the tragedy of choice.

Lore

The player guides Albert and Zoe in their travels through a world where magic stems from the knowledge and the mastery of emotions. This power, violently repressed by the Empire and practiced in secret by the witches, is the source of a conflict which threatens to consume the island.

Gameplay

The player is to alternate between two gameplay phases. Rhythmical combats where he chooses which parts of the music Albert and Zoe act on. Dialogues during which he appoints emotions for the characters to respond with. His choices shape both Albert and Zoe’s relationship and the world around them.

Appeau Studio

Appeau Studio is the result of the gathering of three freelance artists, a name born for Albert+Zoe, and which will outlive it for later projects. Originally, we are three friends and have been sharing our passion for video game development during game jams. As our skills revealed themselves to be complementary, we decided to start developing our own, more ambitious, concepts. We spend a lot of time discussing together the decisions we make in each of these domains. The advice of others allows us to rethink ideas or validate them.
