Description

Quench is a story-driven puzzle game set in a colourful, lo-fi world. You play as Shepherd, an avatar of nature, and you have the power to control the weather to guide herds of animals on a perilous journey. You must protect your flock, tend the land, and unravel the mystery of the strange smokebeasts that have invaded the world. Quench is inspired by uplifting and joyful classics such as The Lion King and Avatar: The Last Airbender and games like Journey and Okami. Quench is an illustrated fable about overcoming differences to restore the world. Explore ways in which kindness, compassion, and forgiveness are powers unto themselves as you protect and care for your animal companions through their challenging pilgrimage.

History

Quench was first born at TOJam: The Sevening, inspired by the theme “The World Is Not Ending”. From a Flash prototype, Jeff and James refined the concept several times as various student projects. In mid-2014, the Axon team made a playable Unity demo that was shown at the Level Up Showcase and Gamercamp. Quench is a recipient of the Ontario Media Development Corporation's Interactive Digital Media Fund. This opportunity will allow Axon Interactive to complete the game with an expected release in 2018. Quench is currently planned for release on Steam and itch.io.
