UK developer Viperante announce its new adventure game, Restless, a dark, intense, suspenseful, and fright filled experience that begins with a former criminal defense attorney’s investigation into the disappearance of a young woman.

Backed by gorgeous hand drawn scenery, 3D characters, and a hauntingly emotive score, this simple premise will ease gamers into a rich and detailed story, taking them on an exciting and eye opening journey across New York City and beyond. Search for answers in all manner of locations from a luxurious apartment complex, to a supposedly abandoned and haunted State School, and meet a whole host of characters, some alive, some dead, some helpful and good, some devious and bad.

Restless is a journey into the human soul, an examination of right and wrong, responsibility and retribution, and an exercise in just what it would take to evolve one person's entire personality completely.

Can people really change, or are they slaves to themselves forever? Find out.

Kate Jones had everything, but she committed a terrible sin, and lost it all. Now, she sticks to the shadows, the darkness and the bottle her only friends. With days haunted by the guilty memories of what she has done, and nights plagued by disturbing images of an unknown woman in obvious pain, Kate is slowly being consumed by her own paranoia and shame. There is no way out, until one morning, after a particularly heavy night of drinking, she awakens to find a strange envelope on her bed. Inside is a newspaper clipping reporting the mysterious disappearance of a young woman, the same woman who stalks Kate's nightmares. A simple note tells her "If you want to help yourself, help her!” Kate realizes that if she is to ever escape this shattered existence, she is going to have to summon whatever small amount of strength she has left, get back out there and do as the note instructs.

Join her as she steps out of the shadows and into a deep and dark mystery involving police corruption, the local Mafia, secret experiments, family crises, lost love, missed opportunities, revenge, a life's work, frightening supernatural disturbances, and a mysterious and elusive former CIA neurologist known only as Janus.

Restless is slated for a Q4 2007 release.
