Gaming Corps. has released the first trailer for their new narrative-driven game The Descendant.
Featuring puzzles and exploration, The Descendant is about a group of people who have been cryogenically stored in an underground Ark, known as Ark-01, after climate change has began destroying Earth. The game takes place in two separate time periods. In the past, players take control of Mia, “a janitor tasked with keeping the precious descendants housed within Ark-01 alive while the facility continually fails around her.” In the present, Donnie is an investigator “trying to rescue any surviving descendants trapped within, all while discovering a far greater conspiracy buried within the underground Ark complex.” As with similar games, a heavy emphasis has been placed on player choice.
The first episode will be released on PC on March 24th, and those who pre-order will be granted 48 hour early access. Subsequent episodes will release over 2016.
