Thanks for your time and attention throughout the development of this game! It's been a labor of love for over two years as I've worked on this all in my spare time. As you explore the worlds in The Search I hope you are able to take away something positive from the experience, whether it is intrigue, inspiration, or just a sense of wonder. I believe that art has the power to speak profound truths and change people's lives for the better.

Greetings to all! A couple of big announcements to make today. First of all, the release date:
The Search will be released on April 14th!
It will initially be released through Steam and Itch.io. To accompany this there is a new trailer showing off new sights and sounds from the game. The trailer can be viewed below:
I'm also very pleased to announce that The Search will feature voice acting by Cissy Jones! She is well known for her performance in Firewatch as the voice of Delilah. I was so impressed with her performance I approached her soon after that game was released. Cissy has also contributed her voice acting talents to other games such as The Walking Dead and Life is Strange among many others.
Stay tuned for more updates in the coming week!
The Search has now been Greenlit on Steam! Thanks to all who voted!
The Search will be getting an option to display clues while you are playing the game. It will be similar to The Room where every so often an option will pop up giving you the chance to sneak a peek at a clue for wherever you might get stuck. This feature wasn’t originally planned, but after a few rounds of playtesting it seems like the game would benefit from having it. Again, this will be an optional feature and can be turned off for those who want a challenge.
The Search has been written about on AdventureGamers.com revealing a little more about the game and it’s inspirations.

I am pleased to announce that The Search is now on Steam Greenlight!
There’s still more work to do, such as adding music, polishing the user experience, more playtesting, and optimization, but much of the content is now complete. Please check out the Steam Greenlight page and vote if you would like to see the game on Steam!
Along with the Greenlight announcement, I’m pleased to present the first trailer for The Search:
