Publisher Deck 13’s Spotlight label has announced that art-deco-inspired first person puzzler Faraday Protocol launches on August 12.
The game puts you in the shoes of an alien archaeologist named Raug from the planet Cunor. You’ve been sent on a mission to investigate a mysterious signal coming from the space station OPIS. Once there, you’ll have to solve various puzzles using an implement known as the Bia-Tool that allows you to absorb and redistribute certain forms of energy.
As you investigate, you’ll be uncovering the mystery surrounding the station-slash-biosphere and its governing AI known as IRIS. Though the concept seems familiar, it certainly has an intriguing aesthetic with its sci-fi Bioshock-like flavour. We’re promised plenty of collectables and more which attentive players can find during their mission as they seek out the truth. You can check out a trailer announcing the release date for the game below.
Faraday Protocol is set to launch on August 12 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC. A free demo is also available to download via Steam over here.
