Urged on by concerned citizens living in the nearby areas, several police units take in resolving the case. With no breaks in the case, days go by, and more people go missing–not only students, but policemen and professors at the institution vanish without a trace. Within days, the authorities and the director decide to shut down the university indefinitely. So the case is closed, never to be spoken of again.

Year: 1966
A young man wakes, confused, in Crowswood University, and discovers he’s now here as part of an experiment. He intends to escape from that dirty and gloomy place full of enigmas, puzzles and obstacles, which he will have to solve and overcome in order to achieve his goal. Nevertheless, his curiosity, coupled with the manipulation of a macabre scientist, will make him feel the need to discover the truth behind the disappearances and the role that he plays in this whole experiment.

Unreal Engine 4 sci-fi mystery Breached launches tomorrow on Steam

breached-mystery-exploration-coming-to-linux-mac-windows-pc

One more day until Breached launches! The #scifi #mystery from Drama Drifters and our Nkidu Games label is not your typical game: it has you scouring your journal to try and piece together the events preceding your awakening from cryogenic slumber; you’ll pilot a drone to #scavenge the land and avoid anomalies; you’ll combine materials to try and give yourself more oxygen to survive.

It’s quite interesting to see some of the initial coverage we’ve seen. Impressions have been mixed, and we did expect that; this blend of play isn’t going to be for everyone, and may not appeal to those looking for some intense shooter or expansive world to explore. The team has really put together an intriguing experience, and I think there’s a lot to like. Each playthrough of Breached will take you between one and two hours, and subsequent runs will help shed a bit more light on what’s happened.

Unknown circumstances. The land and settlements around you have crumbled to ruin, broken buildings and jagged shards all that remains. Confused and isolated, you’re compelled to repair the shelter, explore the ruins and scavenge your surroundings, in hopes of uncovering – or perhaps avoiding – the uncomfortable truth of what has transpired.

Breached blends a range of genres and gameplay elements, including:

Data Mining

  • Guide Corus through his journal and pilot his mind. Explore previous entries by linking tags, helping Corus decipher his thoughts.

Drone Expeditions

  • The environment has many stories to tell. Pilot drones to scavenge deserted locations, but beware of anomalies.

Puzzle Solving

  • Combine materials you’ve scavenged to repair your shelter and maximize fuel generation to aid in your survival.

Energy Management

  • You have enough oxygen to last 8 days. Choose your actions carefully or risk suffocation.

Features:

  • Experience an offbeat blend of genres
  • Dive into a complex sci-fi story with a wealth of mysteries to solve
  • Enjoy Unreal Engine 4-powered visuals with sci-fi and glitch aesthetics

The Linux release:

According to Drama Drifter, “we approached severe Unreal Engine bugs. So right now we had to delay Linux release for a week at least.”

The game is scheduled for release on Steam and other digital distributors on June 22 at just $6.99. For more information, visit Breached-game.com.
