The first gameplay trailer has been released for Liberated, an upcoming graphic novel which is scheduled to release on Switch later this year.
The game takes place inside the pages of a comic book, with action sequences seamlessly transitioning from one panel to the next. You'll find action, stealth, and puzzle sections waiting for you within the pages, as well as a complete hand-drawn story full of important choices.
It's set in the near-future, where corporate power, state-driven misinformation, government surveillance and weaponised personal data has warped humanity. As the game's press release puts it, "In Liberated, truth is relative, revolution is near, and players will experience both sides of this conflict".
Marek Czerniak, Creative Director at developer Atomic Wolf, has said the following:
”We intend Liberated to be a thought-provoking experience, and we're touching on very real, familiar subjects. Liberated asks difficult questions about modern technology, control over information, and how all that power can enable the rise of authoritarianism."
We don't have a release date for this one just yet, but it's expected to arrive on Steam and Switch in 2019 with other platforms to follow. Will you be keeping an eye out for it?
