'Relicta' (ALL) Gets Release Date, PC Demo Next Week - Trailer

by Rainier on June 12, 2020 @ 3:13 a.m. PDT

Relicta is a sci-fi first-person puzzle adventure that blends together science, nature and mystery.

Alone in the treacherous depths of the Moon, your scientific mind is the only thing that can keep your daughter alive…

Play as a top physicist stranded on an eerie, derelict Moon base. Find your way around the enigmatic, terraformed craters by bending gravity and magnetism to your will in order to solve physical puzzles. Will you rush straight ahead and try to reach safety - or will you take your time to gather clues and unravel the intrigues of 22nd century orbital politics? Buried in the eternal darkness of the lunar craters lies a secret that might claim your daughter’s life - or change the fate of humanity forever. Are you ready to face the ultimate consequences of your research?

In the 21st century, the discovery of Y-Astra revolutionized science as we know it. Its incredible energy properties did not go unnoticed for the expedition sent to the Chandra base, who recorded mysterious gravitational and magnetic anomalies and focused all their resources on studying the phenomenon. You will be in the role of Angelica Patel, a renowned scientist in charge of leading the expedition and studying the behaviour of the anomaly in different environments, while trying to unravel the secrets behind it.

Your daughter has just arrived from Earth to help you in the investigation, when an energy overload causes a massive power cut in most of the base. You will have to break through the natural testing areas that are still in operation to reach the blocked sectors of the base and try to save her. Botanical, glacial, arid and tropical biomes await you with unique mechanics to test your skills, while you try to find out the reason behind the accident.

The new trailer gives a deeper insight into the mystery that awaits players in Relicta. The eponymous Relicta at the heart of Chandra Base is a source of power that could solve many problems, but at what cost?

If you want to get a head start on solving the puzzles that await, a demo for Relicta will be available as part of the Steam Game Festival, Summer Edition, starting 16 June.

In Relicta, you will combine gravity, magnetism and creative thinking to solve the challenging puzzles that we will find along a variety of terraformed natural environments, all wrapped in a story that mixes mystery and exploration in a space station.

In Relicta each corner tells a story, each new step is a challenge. Find your way around the enigmatic, terraformed craters and investigate different locations and ecosystems. Will you rush straight ahead and try to reach safety? Or will you take your time to gather clues and unravel the intrigues of 22nd century orbital politics?  Buried in the eternal darkness of the lunar craters lies a secret that might claim your daughter’s life - or change the fate of humanity forever.

Are you ready to face the ultimate consequences of your research?
