The Watchlist: Tala

Title: Tala
Developer: Matthew Petrak
Platforms: PC
In development
---
A hand crafted adventure game set in a tiny world.
Tala is an atmospheric point-and-click adventure game. You play as the titular Tala, who runs a nursery in this tiny landscape. Winter is approaching and you must venture out and gather food to survive the cold.

Tala immediately stands outs due its unique aesthetic. The developer takes pictures of places in his area and in natural parks, then enhances these real-life backdrops with objects and characters depicted in a hand-animated art style. Interactive elements will bring the world to life as you explore, find items, and solve puzzles. The environment, actions, and symbols will convey the narrative rather than text, building upon the game's whimsical atmosphere.
The developer plans to finish a short introduction to Tala's world and characters, then, based on the reception, expand on that through crowdfunding or other means. You can follow Tala's progress on the game's Tumblr and Twitter pages.
