City From Naught Inc. is a Toronto based studio working on 3D contents creation. Previous projects include 2D plan to 3D model auto generation and 3D educational software. The studio is now working in full speed on their first indie game Keyword. The studio wants to create something truly immersive, like a real detective, sitting down in front of his desk trying to unravel a mystery. There is no quest marker telling where you should look at next, yet there is always some intrigue, some pieces of information hidden in plain sight. The studio works hard to eliminate pixel hunting and arbitrary puzzles. We do this by incorporating as much real-life intuition as possible and players never need to try random combinations till it works unlike many old point and click adventure games.
