Weird weather and windmills in strange Tiger Style teaser site

After the slice of sci-fi excellence that was Waking Mars, and the anrachnid-themed addictiveness of Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor, we at AppSpy were always going to be excited to see what developer Tiger Style would come up with next.

The answer, if the URL of this recently launched teaser site is to be believed, is a project called Blackbird Estate.

After agreeing to give the site your location details, you are presented with an image of rural landscape featuring a windmill in the background and a tower in foreground.

In the window of the tower, a silhouette of a man can be seen. At the bottom right of the screen are the words "Three things cannot be long hidden: The Sun, The Moon, and The Truth."

Spooky, right?

What's even weirder is that the image appears differently to different viewers. While we saw the tower bathed in afternoon light, sister site Pocket Gamer saw the same scene, but drenched in torrential rain. Check it out:

We're guessing Tiger Style is using location-based hocus-pocus to track time and weather conditions, and tweak the image to match your environment. However, apart some pleasant rural surroundings and chance of sudden downpour, we've no idea what to expect from the game itself.

Needless to say, we're intrigued by this turn-up, and promise to keep you abreast of any future developments in the world of Blackbird Estate.
