A project to save a devastated world, turned into a disaster of its own. A decade later, four people return to the desert that used to be the Aral Sea, each for his or her own reasons. In the form of a platform adventure game switching between characters with very different abilities, Residue tells the story of the people who tried to change everything, and how it ended up changing them. Residue is also a ghost from our past; the project around which we formed as a group, long before we started calling ourselves The Working Parts. After some years of development and a host of other projects (our entire catalog, really) coming in between, this is the year when we get to take you with us on our journey into the Aral Sea.

Residue is done


Residue is done

After years of development, Residue will finally be released on Desura on Monday, May 6! We invite everyone to take part in this pivotal point for The Working Parts.

I saw that the game made it on Steam. Congratulations for that!
Would it be possible to get Steam keys for owners of Desura copies?
Thanks in advance!

Chapter 8 where is bird to unlock art bonus? I replay this chapter 3 times and don't see bird, most of chapter is underwater so search for bird with Nikolai.
Any little hint?

Looks neat! You guys should port this to MonoGame and take advantage of the multiplatform support.

Thanks! We've actually been looking into that just recently, now that development is done. Look forward to (hopefully, fingers crossed!) seeing either Residue, They Breathe or both on some new places!

Does anyone know of a walkthrough for this game? I'm having difficulty with the controls of Emile. I'm stuck in a place that's mostly dark, jumping and grabboing, but can't get anywhere - not even back to where I came from. Quite frustrating.

Residue was featured on my Indie Showcase! Really enjoying what I've played so far. The story seems intriguing, well-presented, and unique! - Youtube.com

You have a weak spot for water ;) And strange settings and characters. I love what you do.
