The folks at Quickfire Games aren’t only interested in making you a very dark and mature harvesting sim in Wild Season. They’ve also partnered up with Agos Studio to help work on another post-apocalyptic game called Exogenesis ~Perils of Rebirth~.
The post-apocalyptic adventure/visual novel game is looking to combine the sort of heavy character interaction we see in games such as Ace Attorney with the you-can’t-win of Zero Escape-style games.
The point-and-click title is intending to span about six chapters with puzzles to solve and clues to unravel in an about-10 hour game. Players will be Yudai Sayashi in post-apocalyptic Japan. Humanity’s gone to hell, but Yudai and his band of treasure hunters/looters survive by picking up and out items to help them survive. Until a trap triggers two years back in 2069 and fatally ends Yudai’s sister Miho’s life.
Two years later, and Yudai discovers that the mythical Noah’s Ark is a real place that was created in the days before the end times—and in it the Lazarus Protocol that could possibly bring his beloved dead sister back to life. As part of the plan though, he’s got to get his treasure hunting group the Durchhalten back together—even if he’s going to have to coax, cajole or gather evidence against them.
The devs are promising that the puzzles surrounding the game aren’t going to be nonsensical (And this, really, can only be a good thing) with multiple endings.
