Indie studio Lionbite Games has revealed that the story-driven adventure game Rain of Reflections will launch on Windows PC via Steam on Sept. 20, 2019. Delve into a richly layered dystopian world, survive nail-biting turn-based strategy encounters, hack systems to open new ways forward, meet a cast of strong-willed characters and make decisions that will shape the future.
Rain of Reflections: Chapter 1 – titled “Set Free” – follows Wilona, a scientist trying to cure a global epidemic of infertility. When Wilona begins to have doubts about the morality of the experiments she’s running on the world’s lastborn child, she sets off a life-or-death quest across the pristine towers of the wealthy elite, the flooded slums of the underclass, and the cold, sterile halls of the state’s laboratories.
Throughout your journey, you’ll engage in turn-based strategy encounters in destructible environments with a range of tactical options, including stealth, dialogue and combat. You’ll also breach computer systems, crack locks and eavesdrop on radio communications through a variety of hacking puzzles.
Your words matter, too. Dialogue choices can convince, defuse or outsmart other characters in a variety of fully voiced conversations, which may have serious consequences down the road. They can also influence the motivation of your allies and enemies in combat, helping to change the tide of battle at a critical moment.
Rain of Reflections’ ambitious story will feature multiple chapters, each a full tale in itself, adding layers to the world while showing completely new and fresh areas and gameplay through different perspectives. Chapter 2 – “Open Eye” – will follow a deadbeat private investigator in a cyberpunk district called The Cluster, while Chapter 3 – “Undercurrent” – will shed light on the Infrared underground resistance movement and its front figure, Imra.
