COLUMNAE: A Past Under Construction Is A Post Apocalyptic Steampunk World That Needs Your Vote On The Square Enix Collective

Moonburnt Studio has just launched a Square Enix collective campaign for their truly beautiful non-linear point & click adventure game, that features silhouette graphics, “COLUMNAE: A Past Under Construction.”

The game is set in a post-apocalyptic steampunk world, ruined by a gradual environmental catastrophe that left the air on the surface unbreathable about 140 years ago. To escape the catastrophe, the rich built a haven for themselves high in the skies and those who could not afford it had to hide within its pillars. The story is focused on a society descended from people who couldn’t afford to inhabit Deus – the “city in the clouds”, in the moment when the ecological disaster was imminent. Deus is a closed town surrounded by a mechanical steel shell, and built upon 127 gigantic (over 600m/2000ft high) metal pillars – Columnae. Beneath them, a huge underground machinery, called Machina, was built with the purpose of automatically extracting and processing resources and sending them via pipes through Columnae and into Deus. This way, Machina was constructed to provide all the necessary resources to the people living in Deus indefinitely, so they would never have to leave it again – and to this day, they never did.

As a player, you are one of those unlucky many who survive in Columnae, the pillars of Deus. During the game, you’ll explore the Columnae filled with intrigue, the underground Machina holding secrets from the past, the anarcho-tribal society of The Cliffs, and the industrious Greenhouse Dome owned by The Baroness, all in order to find your way into the heaven on Earth – Deus.
