Heaven’s Vault, a narrative adventure game first announced for Switch in September 2019, now has a release date. The game will arrive on Nintendo’s console on January 28, 2021.
Here’s an overview of Heaven’s Vault, along with a trailer:
Aliya Elasra is an archaeologist, exploring a strange region of space called the Nebula with her robot sidekick Six, hoping to uncover the secrets of the long-forgotten past. When a roboticist from the University of Iox goes missing, Aliya begins a trail of discoveries that will lead to the very edge of her world – and the ancient secret of Heaven’s Vault.
Heaven’s Vault is not your usual linear adventure game. Progress through the game in any order you choose – the game’s fully adaptive narrative remembers every choice you make, every discovery and every action you take, influencing what happens next. Meet a diverse cast of characters who remember everything you say, and who’s attitude to you will change with how you act. Some are friendly, some are cautious, and some are out to trick you.
Who will you trust? What will you find? What will you learn? What will you risk? What will you lose?
– Explore ancient sites, discover lost ruins
– Find artefacts and translate their strange hieroglyphics
– Sail an open-world of fast flowing space-rivers
– Piece together the history of the world and an entire ancient language
– Diverse cast of characters that remember everything you say
Translate Ancient Hieroglyphs
An entire ancient hieroglyphic language awaits to be deciphered. A puzzle mechanic with a twist: solutions are narratively significant and further the story – but the wrong translation might send you down the wrong track!
Industry leading narrative engine
Powered by the ink engine, the narrative technology behind 80 Days, Sorcery!, NeoCab, Sable, Where the Water Tastes Like Wine and many more, Heaven’s Vault is a dynamically constructed adventure game that responds to every move you make.
Heaven’s Vault will be sold digitally for Switch via the eShop. It will cost $17.99 / £14.99 / €15.99.
