Developer Atomic Wolf, in collaboration with L.inc and publisher Walkabout Games, today announced the tech-noir graphic novel Liberated. The project is in development for Switch and other platforms.
Here’s an official overview:
Players will experience a story about a world where government authorities use advanced technology to manipulate the population. Civil rights are a thing of the past, with the government engaging in complete surveillance of every citizen in the world. Social media activity, online payments, and GPS location tracking from mobile devices are just some of the ways every single person is being monitored. In this world, there are insurgents resisting this oppression, fighting for their freedom, while government agents try to maintain order and control. In Liberated, players will experience both sides of this conflict, with every choice they make changing the course of the story.
Told over the course of four chapters, with each issue focusing on a different character, Liberated is an interactive graphic novel that combines the experience of a motion comic with a videogame. Liberated transitions seamlessly from choice-based branching story sequences to fully playable action sequences as the action moves from panel to panel. By combining a motion comic with 2.5D platforming, stealth mechanics, and shootouts, and quick-time events, Liberated brings the story to life like nothing else.
And a trailer:
Liberated will launch on Switch later this year.
