[Update: Greenlit] Stuck In Greenlight Limbo: ‘Calm Waters’

calm waters

This time the spotlight will be shining on Calm Waters, the tale of a mysterious island on which nothing is quite as it seems, and people have a tendency to… disappear! Let’s help it escape the cold emptiness of Greenlight limbo!

You play the role of Peter Taylor, a man who lost his wife 3 years ago. To move on with his life, Peter decides to take a vacation abroad. He arrives at a small, quiet coastal town where tourists are sparse and everybody knows each other. It’s only when he notices people are going missing and all the signs point to a dark, mysterious island out to sea that he decides to team up with local journalist Michelle and terrified-yet-adventure-seeking waiter Glenn to go and investigate.

A man on vacation, a local journalist and a waiter attempting to solve the mystery of a spooky island – what could possibly go wrong? Aside from everything that is. Everything! Let’s hope for their sake that it doesn’t though, or this uncanny pointy and clicky tale would likely be over much too soon, and… well, we obviously can’t have that. That said, chances are someone will end up dead sooner rather than later, given the setting and such. I mean, if history is any indication, even protagonists aren’t safe in stories such as this. But we’ll see. Could be wrong. Maybe everyone makes it out in one piece – maybe they ALL end up dead or ‘missing’? Maybe.

So riddle me this, dear reader: why is Calm Waters still struggling to get through Greenlight? Ain’t out just yet, save for a demo. Even so, how about visiting its Greenlight page and handing over a ‘yes’ if you like what you see? Remember: your vote could make all the difference!
