Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning

Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning Badge
Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning is a realistic, action/adventure RPG that delivers a true-to-life, stealthy gaming experience set in multiple open worlds.






If you are looking for a realistic, action/adventure RPG, then look no further. We took a slightly different approach to some of the game play elements to make the game have more realistic situations to encounter. For example, there are stun guns on the island that were placed as a means of a quick small defense by Alfred when he was structuring the Island layout. These were never intended to be used as strong weapons but they can help to achieve your goals. There are also ATV's that can be used but can also be wrecked and unable to recover, leaving you to be on foot or find another one to use. Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning delivers a true-to-life, stealthy gaming experience set in multiple open worlds. As you experience our true cause and effect system while on the path to achieving your goals, the strategy you use will have consequences and those decisions will ultimately determine your success or failure.

Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning will give you a unique gaming experience to enjoy. We intended for this game to be a game that the player goes into and has options, as well as objectives in an environment with an AI that is defending the area.


Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning includes Chapters I and II, with Chapter III coming February 2015. This chapter comes with no additional charge. Chapters II and III continue the story, giving more to encounter and discover. These three chapters together will conclude this first game.


Lorna learns she has inherited the estate of Alfred Cypress, her grandfather that she did not even know about. While this is a lot for her to take in, she also learns of that which is most important. Alfred Cypress, an eccentric and brilliant man who developed and programmed Artificial Intelligence into his living and working environments, located around the world, has disappeared. With Alfred's disappearance, the A.I. programs have become more self-aware, protective, and possessive of the items they protect.

As your journey begins on a mysterious island where (with the technology and assets provided) you must locate and secure important items placed strategically throughout the environment by Alfred. These are crucial to find as others also may be trying to steal them. There are also clues to your past and what may have happened to Alfred. Initially you only have 72 hours to complete the tasks that are before you. With this all in mind, you must use strategy, patience, stay strong and be careful to accomplish your objectives. As you progress forward trying to achieve your goals, you will find that the situation you are in continues to unfold and as you find answers you also have more questions.

  1. Unplayable, totally waste of money
    by niksu, Finland - Sep 26th 2014

    Cypress Inheritance sounds for a very good game - I bought it mainly cause realistic action/adventure RPG was exactly what I was looking for.

    Unfortunately, gameplay shatters and sound crackles the whole time - game is completely unplayable. Lowering quality doesn't help at all.

    My mac meets clearly minimum system requirements. There is something in this game why it did not work - regardless of the hardware. Many users have said this same thing in Steam too. My iMac Late 2012 runs many much heavier games without any issues, but playing this is a full disaster.

    The game itself has a lot of potential, but it does not matter if you can not even play it.

    In my case, purchase was full waste of money. Some have told this to work brilliantly. It would be nice to know where this large difference may be due to

  2. Does not run
    by Bernhard Pollner, Austria - May 11th 2014

    Unfortunately, the game does NOT run on my Mac. (Which is a less than two year old top-equiped MacBookPro).
    Well, it starts but it does nothing but „stutter". Completely un-controllable.
    Even with the graphics turned down all to the lowest specs. — does NOT run.
    Shame :-(
