Luca Redwood of EightyEight Games fame, maker of the phenomenal 10000000 [$2.99] and its follow-up You Must Build A Boat [$2.99], revealed his newest project called Photographs back in February of last year with an extremely vague teaser video. All we really knew about the new game at that time was that it was a "puzzle game that tells five tragic stories" and that it would feature pixel art from one of the fantastic artists behind Thimbleweed Park [$9.99], Octavi Navarro. Well, that initial reveal was close to a year ago now, but just a few weeks back Redwood revealed the first actual trailer for Photographs which showed a bit more of the game itself. I mean, I still had no clue what you actually DID in Photographs, but it sure looked lovely regardless. Here's that trailer again.

So, given the recent trailer I was kind of hoping that meant that Photographs was getting closer to completion, and with a couple of new teasers that Redwood has posted to his Twitter account today I'm really hoping that's the case. These teases are looking awesome. In this first tweet, Redwood explains how the team is experimenting with a really cool camera viewfinder aesthetic for the game, complete with a really neat focus blur effect.

Then this next tweet shows a short clip of an aquatics type of arena as various characters pop in and out of the scene, and then we can see an overlay of a Polaroid style photograph that focuses in on a specific couple.

These latest teases at least give a glimpse as to what Photographs is actually like, although I still couldn't tell you specifically what you do in the game. Hey, I like it that way! I was intrigued by the original announcement, and these little teases make me even more curious what Photographs will be all about. It should be arriving at some point in 2018 but if you're interested like I am you should definitely be following Luca Redwood on Twitter to hopefully catch more bits of Photographs as development continues.
