For my cash, in order for you a narrative a few society set inside a pc, look to ReBoot. However I suppose Tron would possibly fulfill, too. A brand new visible novel set within the neon universe known as Tron: Id was introduced throughout this night’s Disney & Marvel video games showcase, and it is being developed by Bithell Video games. There is a very temporary teaser trailer beneath.
That trailer does not actually present something, however there’s extra to learn on the Steam web page. Tron: Id is a visible novel set on a brand new Grid – the world’s explored within the Tron motion pictures – during which “an unprecedented crime has been dedicated.” You are investing that crime by speaking and asking questions, and through “Id Disc puzzles”.
Should you do not bear in mind your Tron deep lore, identification discs are the back-mounted frisbees which include the personalities, code, and every thing else of applications. They’re like backup DVDs in your soul, but additionally they are often flung like Xena’s chakram for some motive. I do not know what type puzzles involving these discs will take.
Though the Steam web page does not give a lot away as to Tron: Id’s story, Mike Bithell spoke to IGN after the Disney livestream and talked about that the sport wouldn’t function characters from the flicks, Tron or Tron: Legacy. As a substitute, you would be working in a world the place these characters had been legends, and both revered or hated by the characters you meet.
This is not Bithell Video games’ first swing at a visible novel. Though nonetheless greatest identified for maudlin platformer Thomas Was Alone, they’ve extra just lately launched purely narrative video games corresponding to Subsurface Round.
Tron: Id is at present aiming for launch in 2023. It was one among a number of video games proven on the Disney showcase, which additionally introduced a brand new launch date for Marvel’s Midnight Suns.
