Once a Tale is literally a handmade game, using photogrammetry techniques (3D reconstruction from photos). We create an experience that blurs the line between video game and stop motion animated film. With a beautiful story and stunning visuals, our goal is to create a truly magical experience.
Once a Tale uses the contemporary medium of video games to showcase other arts, such as the literature and folklore of classic tales. It is a multi-tale universe where characters from other tales live together within a magical forest.
Once a Tale reinvents the classic tale of Hansel and Gretel, with an added twist: the latter symbolically represent two real-world children trying to survive a context of child abuse. The symbolic aspect feeds the narrative structure.
Developed in partnership with our friends at Triple Boris under the collective "2 Igloos".
