Immerse yourself in a surreal vision of Colonial India in Under a Porcelain Sun.

Press release:
London, 6th March 2018 – Today The Irregular Corporation announced that it is publishing Studio Oleomingus’ next title, Under a Porcelain Sun. Inspired by, postmodern and magical realist literature, Under a Porcelain Sun is an exploration game that immerses you in a surreal vision of India under British rule, in early Nineteenth century.

Travel through a country caught amidst the flux of Colonial expansion, in this text driven first person adventure game, as you get embroiled in the search for Kayamgadh, a city that does not exist. Encounter, brass astronomers and tribes of wax giants, secretive langoors and indolent magistrates, wandering cities and invisible cantonments, in a story told through ever shifting frames of narration. A story that you piece together with every shift and warp in reality, and every surreal, beautifully realised environment that you wander through.

Originally called ‘Somewhere’, Under a Porcelain Sun was incubated at a residency program at Khoj (International Artists association, Delhi, India). And was supported by an arts practice grant from the India Foundation for the Arts, prior to this partnership with The Irregular Corporation. Under a Porcelain Sun is planned for release in Summer 2018.

The Irregular Corporation is also releasing Studio Oleomingus’ beautiful pay-what-you-want Itch.io game, A Museum of Dubious Splendors, on Steam for free.

A peculiar collection of stories from the world of Somewhere, A Museum of Dubious Splendors has you explore the translated works of the Gujarati poet Mir UmarHassan, and the chronicles tales from the strange collection of artifacts at the Sangrahalaya (Museum) at Matsyapur.
