Wadjet Eye Games, an indie publisher of retro-styled adventure games, announced today that Resonance will release for PC on June 19, 2012. A labor of love five years in the making, this impressive commercial debut from independent developer Vince Twelve can be preordered now from Wadjet Eye Games and GOG.
When a brilliant particle physicist dies unexpectedly, the race is on to secure his terrible new technology before it falls into the wrong hands. The lives of four playable characters become entangled as they fight against the clock to find the dead scientist’s secret vault. The suspicions they harbor, the memories they guard, the connections they share – all will converge as these four ordinary people work together to prevent a potentially cataclysmic disaster.
Its 2D pixel-art graphics and intuitive point-and-click interface may be reminiscent of the “good old days,” but Resonance puts a new twist on classic adventure gameplay with its unique long-term and short-term memory systems. In addition to the more traditional inventory, dialogue, and exploration-based gameplay typical in adventure games, Resonance allows players to “collect” memories within the game.
Each of the four playable characters can use these memories to solve puzzles or start conversations with any of the game’s other characters, providing a wealth of interactive possibilities. Resonance also includes an original soundtrack and professional voice cast, with fan-favorite Logan Cunningham (Bastion) in one of the leading roles.
