Le Cartographe

Videogame / Visual Novel & Puzzle Game

An interactive fiction mixing puzzles and investigations around the drawing of a map…

A young cartographer is sent out by his hierarchy into the rural land of his childhood to redraw a frontier: he will gradually discover that this place, which for him was just a set of inky territories, is actually steeped in stories, inhabited by people who have no idea what's going on around them and whose relationship to space is radically different...

The player embodies a land surveyor who explores a rural territory and must make choices that will have an impact on diplomacy, but also on the local population. The game combines visual novel phases and observational puzzles — the two aspects nourishing each other to modify the plot of an interactive story.
