The Choral Cube, crossover ASAxCoralCave

Following a discussion (in french) on the forums of Planète Aventure, Icehouse Member Simon Says Play! (yes, it's me) and our Friends Atelier Sentô are proud to announce an exceptional cooperation with the development of their next indie game project The Choral Cube, a revolutionary project of J-RPG born of their very different worlds, mixing both The Black Cube series (ASA, Catyph) and The Coral Cave game. We’re excited to reveal the first exclusive screenshot and artworks.


The Choral Cube will be developed in Japan by Ts1 Lirpa Studios with the well-known RPG Maker engine, and will be fully funded thanks to the incredibly high sales of ASA: Remastered Edition.
“The Choral Cube tells the story of Mizuka, the little girl created by Atelier Sentô. While she walks in her village, she discovers a black cube in the sand. This cube has a mysterious power and sings an unknown song from another world. 
Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant tide
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine

Mizuka will have to understand the meaning of these words, which will open a path for her only. She will then travel through the Cube and through Space, and reach an unbelievable place made of starfishes and pink planet-candies.“

Atelier Sentô will draw and animate the 5 hours of cutscenes, in a new and expressive manga style. They have already started working on this new graphic style and are training themselves very hard thanks to this wonderful blog.

We are also very happy to announce that Simon Mesnard will give his own voice to the Cube, and will record a special remastered version of Pink Floyd - Echoes, especially for the game.

We can’t wait to reveal more about this crazy project, and we will let you know as soon as possible! Stay tuned on!
