The developers are planning to expand the amount of stores in the near future to improve availability.
Check out the Psychokinesis trailer of Lethe – Episode One, featuring one of the main mechanics of the game:
“An OS X version is planned for later this year. “Lethe – Episode One” was built with the Unreal Development Kit and although we’d love to see a Linux versiontoo, without access to the engine’s source code it is technically impossible right now. Although that could maybe change depending on how well the game will be received.
Many of you asked why it took so long. KoukouStudios has its origins in the modding scene of the early 00’s. It wasn’t before 2012 when we decided to make our passion a profession. We started from nothing and financially supported Lethe’s development completely on our own. Many times by doing one or two other jobs. We had no publishers, investors or paid promotion campaaigns either, yet we managed to create a quality experience that meets our expectations.
Thank you for supporting us during all this time and we hope that you’ll enjoy “Lethe”.
