Brooklyn, NYC, United States — July 20, 2020 — Cosmo D Studios announce that the critically-acclaimed Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1 has today received a free content update that deepens the narrative and greatly intensifies the vibes of the first-person adventure title. The update is now live and available at no extra cost to all current and future owners of the game.

 

Update 1.1 of Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1 gives players a chance to further immerse themself in the unique, off-kilter locales of July Avenue and Yam Street as they embark on a brand new pizza delivery, that will take them to an as-of-yet unexplored apartment positively dripping with trademark Cosmo D atmospherics.

About Cosmo D

Cosmo D is a game designer based in New York City with a background in cello performance and music composition. One rainy night in June 2013, he was struck by a car while crossing the street and found himself unable to play or make music for several months. While convalescing, he took it upon himself to learn the Unity Engine. The result was Off-Peak, released in 2015. A homage to Cosmo D's home city of New York, as well as a commentary on the commodification of art and music in the urban space, Off-Peak gained a cult following, with hordes of press nods, let’s plays on YouTube, and a fanbase eagerly awaiting the follow-up. With assistance from NYU Game Center's Incubator program, publisher Alliance Digital Media, as well as the New York game development scene at large, Cosmo D released a sequel, The Norwood Suite, in October 2017.

Building on the momentum from developing and releasing The Norwood Suite, Cosmo D started work on Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1 in Spring of 2018.
