ZED – Official Trailer (Linux, Windows PC)
The games rather trippy puzzle. But as you explore the environment. You are immersed into the mindset of the artist. Working tirelessly to figure what to do and where to go next. I even asked developer Eagre Games. Give me a heads up on what I should be doing? Lol Nope. You’re on your own.
“We hope that ZED, with its graphically mesmerizing narrative. Will resonate with our fans and audiences worldwide.”
ZED is the vision of Chuck Carter. Also developed in association with Skymap Games. And co-written by Joe Fielder (Bioshock Infinite, The Flame and the Flood). Including David Chen (Metal Gear Solid series, Narcosis). The game also features compelling voice over work. Bringing with it an outstanding cast. Including a riveting performance from a veteran voice actor. None other than Stephen Russell (the Thief, Skyrim and Fallout series).
ZED first person adventure releases support on Steam. Priced at $17.99 USD. Playable on both Linux and Windows PC. The game also works well using Proton. Although not owning a VR headset leaves that stone unturned. Welcome to a unique adventure.
