Bill Tiller's Two Part Perils of Man Will Be Free 14 Sep, 2013 / 2 comments

Perils of Man, the two part adventure game that Bill Tiller is working on in conjunction with Swiss animation studio Boutiq's recently opened game studio IF Games, will be available for free when it is released later this year.

The reason both parts will be released completely for free is that the game serves as an advertisement for the 150-year anniversary of the insurance company Swiss Re. The game will not be cluttered with ads for the insurance company, however, as the only branding in the game is said to be the Swiss Re logo in the game's credits.

The exploration of risk throughout the gameplay itself and the game's storyline serve as the advertisement. The game is said to contain a "special gameplay mechanic that reveals a hidden matrix of cause and effect". And you will "command the fates of thousands by mastering a hidden technology that gives the player the ability to foresee risk."

Both parts will contain between 2 to 3 hours of gameplay, and both parts will be released for iPad before the end of the year. The first part is scheduled for release this October, and second part is expected to be released some time before the end of this year.

    Well, that makes me somewhat less excited for this release, I must say. But oh, well, I'll remain hopeful, and I certainly won't cynically write it off completely. But yeah, like Shmargin said, it'll definitely be in the back of my mind.

    I feel like me knowing there's an advertising aspect though, I'm going to be constantly feeling like it's there.

    Or any time I see something that's the same color as their logo I would point and say out loud "I see what you're doing there!".
