Based in Bayreuth, Germany
Kindred Souls is a cooperative adventure game that has a special focus on the connection between the two playable characters. You slip into the role of the fox siblings Haru and Mei on their journey through a dream-like world of the afterlife. The characters have strong 'soul connection' to each other, which distributes all kinds of effects among them. Thus progress can only be achieved by skillfully combining character-specific skills and capabilities. If one character is about to get lost in the dark, the other one probably can provide some light. If one fox is about to burn its paws, the other one can maybe bestow the necessary cooling. The link can be used to master all kind of unusual situations or to solve complex puzzles in the mysterious afterworld.
The initial idea of the concept was developed on the second version of the official Franken Game Jam in June 2019. By that time the game was called Eremic. It was exhibited at several events, including the Nuremberg Digital Festival and Devcom 2019, where it could bring in a lot of positive feedback. This game would become the first full-length project of Sleeprunner Studios later on.
