NEW YORK – Nov. 02, 2017 – Alliance Digital Media and indie developer Cosmo D, the mind behind Off-Peak, have released a free demo for The Norwood Suite on Windows PC. The demo lets players experience the game’s introductory scenes, explore the grounds and lobby of the secluded Hotel Norwood, and interact with its guests and staff. Players’ progress from the demo will carry over to the full version of the game when purchased, which is available now on Steam, the Humble Store, and itch.io for £5.79.
Recently featured as Kotaku’s “Indie Pick of the Week,” The Norwood Suite is an atmospheric adventure like few others, inspired by classics like Gone Home and Twin Peaks, as well as the works of Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar-wai and the New York music scene. What begins as a simple errand run for a mysterious new friend at the old Hotel Norwood quickly evolves into a bizarre journey featuring strange characters, secret passageways and lost memories. Behind the doors of The Norwood Suite is a unique game world teeming with surreal art design, clever surprises and an original atmospheric score composed by Cosmo D.

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.
