-----END PATCH NOTES-----
The PC version of Isolation Story has been developed side-by-side, with a console version. The console version of Isolation Story will look similar to the PC version and also run at 60FPS.
Please stay tuned for more announcements and updates on that very soon...
It's been a tough year for everyone. I started developing this game around March when Australia was entering various states of Lockdown due to the virus. This game, although it's dealing with a relatively serious matter, is intended to serve as a small dose of some dark-humor during these dark-times.
Thank you for the support and let's get through this mess together.
Good luck in Lockdown City, everyone!
Get Isolation Story
