If you like pizza, jazz, an avant-garde vision of New York, and surrealism in an adventure game, Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1 is a game that will take you to a weird and wonderful new state of mind.

Tales From Off-Peak City is a first-person adventure game series, all set on, around, and under a single street corner.

Set in the same universe as the critically-acclaimed The Norwood Suite and Off-Peak, Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1 will bring players to the unforgettable street corner of July Avenue and Yam Street, as they plot to obtain a saxophone from longtime pizza-maker (and former saxophonist) Caetano Grosso. This instrumental pursuit will set off a chain of events across the neighborhood, taking players deep into the hidden worlds and private lives of the people living there.

Filled with memorable characters and the spaces they inhabit, the game provides an open-ended world full of secrets and hidden agendas. Players will explore the streets and its surroundings, make pizzas, take photos, push buttons, open drawers they’re not supposed to, and lose themselves inside the atmospheric musical score that integrates itself directly into the game world.

An acclaimed cellist, Cosmo D composed the unique soundtrack for Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1, which will also be available at launch, either separately, priced $6.99 or as a Deluxe Bundle (Game + Soundtrack) for $12.99.

Volume 1: Caetano’s Slice is the first game of many in the anthology of Tales. While each ‘Volume’ is its own self-contained story and experience, taken together, they build towards the larger overarching narrative of what’s really going on at the corner of July Avenue and Yam Street and what role you ultimately play in its fate.

Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1, is headed to PC (Steam) on May 15, priced $9.99 – with a 10% discount available at launch.
