For my cash, in order for you a narrative a couple of society set inside a pc, look to ReBoot. However I suppose Tron would possibly fulfill, too. A brand new visible novel set within the neon universe referred to as Tron: Id was introduced throughout this night’s Disney & Marvel video games showcase, and it is being developed by Bithell Video games. There is a very temporary teaser trailer beneath.
That trailer would not actually present something, however there’s extra to learn on the Steam web page. Tron: Id is a visible novel set on a brand new Grid – the world’s explored within the Tron films – wherein “an unprecedented crime has been dedicated.” You are investing that crime by speaking and asking questions, and through “Id Disc puzzles”.
In case you do not bear in mind your Tron deep lore, id discs are the back-mounted frisbees which comprise the personalities, code, and every part else of applications. They’re like backup DVDs in your soul, but in addition they are often flung like Xena’s chakram for some purpose. I do not know what type puzzles involving these discs will take.
Though the Steam web page would not give a lot away as to Tron: Id’s story, Mike Bithell spoke to IGN after the Disney livestream and talked about that the sport wouldn’t function characters from the films, Tron or Tron: Legacy. As an alternative, you would be working in a world the place these characters had been legends, and both revered or hated by the characters you meet.
This is not Bithell Video games’ first swing at a visible novel. Though nonetheless finest recognized for maudlin platformer Thomas Was Alone, they’ve extra lately launched purely narrative video games corresponding to Subsurface Round.
Tron: Id is at the moment aiming for launch in 2023. It was one in every of a number of video games proven on the Disney showcase, which additionally introduced a brand new launch date for Marvel’s Midnight Suns.
