San Francisco-based Swedish photographer Gabriel Isak

  • “He uses photography as a metaphor for experiences of the soul by creating photographs that are simple in form, but rich in ideas and emotions. His imagery entails surreal and melancholic scenes inspired by the inner world of dreams and psychology, where he invites the viewer to interact with the internal world of solitary figures that symbolize our own unconscious states. The objective of Isak’s art is to reflect human experiences  that will allow the spectator to reflect on their own journey.”

For centuries humans have indulged themselves with tales of Light:
A hero slays a monster to save a princess, a mermaid who sacrificed her voice to be with her beloved,
a beast who turned into a human when he learned the meaning of love, and many more we’ve inherited from our ancestors.
But they have forgotten that there were also times of Darkness and despair; times where evil was rampant and good went unrewarded.

This is a story of how Light and Darkness entwine deeply with one another.

Synopsis:
In 20XX, an enormous earthquake shook the world and caused a triangular crater to suddenly appear in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle.

The world was aghast with this discovery; even more so when scout teams could not approach it due to an ‘invisible wall’ surrounding it.

After a while, spiritual events increased. It started small with things like; sightings of fairies and children with animal characteristics popped up one after another.
Parents credited it to their children’s active imagination while playing pretend.
However, it quickly escalated into a Ghost Festival around Monas Tower, followed by sudden disappearances of sheep in England; leaving only horrid splashes of red blood and huge claw marks on their pastures.

For Maya this was a dream come true! Her fantasies were now a reality: a reality she could see and touch.
But then her world crumbled when a Goddess came and announced that her family would die in a car accident in the near future.

The Goddess offered Maya a deal: She would change her family’s fate in exchange for aiding Her in closing the Triangle Crater. She wouldn’t be doing this alone of course; the Goddess is not that cruel.

Game Info:
Hi guys! My new project is finally here! :D
Now before you ask; “Nusantara: Bermuda Triangle” is not a sequel of “Nusantara: Legend of The Winged Ones”.
This is an entirely new story but set on the same universe. It covers a wider horizon of Nusantara’s archipelago.
Bermuda’s story will be much longer, packed with content, and has lots more visual assets than Winged Ones… I dunno whether to be happy or cry about that :’)) Because of this, I decided to make this project a commercial one.
I’m still thinking about the price, but I will open a kickstarter on IndieGoGo next year so you’ll have a chance to get an ‘Early-bird’ pack!

Features:
- 4 Love interests (The last bachelor will be unlocked once you finished with all 3 main bachelors routes)
- 9 Endings
- 1 Constant Minigame
- Casual Status Raising
- MIni Encyclopedia
- CG Gallery
- lots of CGs & BGs (I haven’t calculate the exact number yet)
- Depending on IndieGoGo’s success, the bachelors & MC may have partial voice acting.

Amazing show of Mark Ryden’s latest work. Amazing amount of detail to his process from painting on a lift with rollers to manufacturing the frames overseas to exacting specifications. There is no other world like his. Even the Fan Mom and Daughter dressed up and brought their favorite Mark Ryden dolls. It’s a macabre world where innocence and the gruesome comingal in an ethereal world. Check it out through January 23, 2016.
