Comic books or visual novels never go out of style, and with the resurgence in cinema and TV, it’s no surprise to see more and more in videogame form, some even breaking the fourth wall by putting the player inside the pages. Set in a near-future dystopia when the government has taken control for safety reasons in a society that is more interested in being always online instead of free, one becomes part of the group “Liberated” to shake things up.
Being part action-adventure with puzzle solving, platforming and shooting action, and part graphic novel that uses its panels as levels (not something particularly new, considering Sega’s Comix Zone already did this in the 90ies), one is involved in all sorts of ways. As the story is told via different points of views, it’s kept fresh, while the black-and-white comics aesthetics make it look as cool and realistic as possible.
The game was already released on Nintendo Switch on June 2, 2020, and is out now on PC, including various free DLC chapters, with a 20% launch discount that lasts until August 6, 2020, at 1 PM UTC.
