Hello everyone, it’s been a while since we wrote about our development progress.
In October, we developed new characters and implemented significant mechanics for Project UNSEEK. We also have news about the events we participate in and what we plan in the near future.
Let’s get into it!

Other than the updates above, we’re also making some changes to the game’s overall experience
We’re revamping the overall art style with a new style, combining 2D and 3D assets to create a stylish and functional visual.
Inspired by mystery movie visuals and old computers, we’re creating a new UI to create more immersive experiences.
As the game is in development, there are still a lot of bugs found in the build, and we’re trying to fix them on every new version.
Besides development, Project UNSEEK is also attending and featured in various offline and online events.
Level Up Kuala Lumpur
Thanks to support from Asosiasi Game Indonesia, Project UNSEEK can attend and open a booth at Level UP KLM. At the event, we met incredible people from the games industry and received feedback and insight from them.
Our first time attending an international event independently was a great experience. Even though the event is B2B only, we have so many visitors at our booth, from students, game dev, publisher, and the legendary Shuhei Yoshida of Playstation, that give us much valuable feedback and appreciation.
This event also has events on Steam and Project UNSEEK featured on the event page.

Our first-time event on Steam (Not including the Gamescom Asia one), a Halloween event featuring a lot of horror games Steam has to offer. At the event, we’re doing a Livestream on steam, talking about the development of Project UNSEEK and playing the game with the development team. We’re also doing a playtest session on our discord that we will explain next.
