Nobody Hears You Clicking in Space: Assemble announces narrative sci-fi detective-adventure Between Horizons, a new adventure from the creators of Lacuna!
Publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer DigiTales Interactive announce their new detective adventure Between Horizons! As part of MIX Next, the title was presented to the public for the first time in a world exclusive live stream.
Between Horizons will be released in 2023 for Steam, GOG, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Between Horizons is the second game from the still young developer studio DigiTales, which landed a genuine indie surprise hit with their debut work Lacuna.
With 96% positive Steam reviews and a Metacritic score of 86, the studio has demonstrably managed to wow both the trade press and the gaming community. With their new title Between Horizons, DigiTales build on the unique selling points already known from Lacuna – a detective adventure, a well-written story, an original sci-fi universe, momentous decisions in the game, many different endings, modern adventure gameplay, visually appealing UI and a detailed graphic and audiovisual presentation.
Between Horizons takes place aboard mankind’s first generation ship, en route to a distant star. Take on the role of Stella, who was born on the ship 24 years ago and recently inherited the position of Chief of Security from her father. Delve into the conspiracy that is disrupting order aboard the Zephyr and could doom her mission.
Between Horizons is a modern 2.5D pixel art adventure with a complex and branching narrative structure in a semi-open world. Thanks to the expertise that the DigiTales team was able to gain with their debut work and surprise hit LACUNA, you have multiple solutions for cracking complex cases at your disposal. Face increasingly difficult moral choices as the situation aboard the Zephyr threatens to escalate.
A new experience: Between Horizons combines detective gameplay with an adaptive sci-fi story set in a Metroidvania-esque setting.
Solve the cases yourself: The dynamic evidence management system allows you to assign the clues you find to the different cases, confront the ship’s passengers and find the solutions yourself. Everything on the ship is connected – your task is to uncover how.
At what price?: The exciting and plausible sci-fi plot is thought-provoking and asks the question of the relationship between intergenerational responsibility and personal freedom.
New Perspective: Timeless pixel art is combined with a 3D environment and modern visual effects in Between Horizons to create a unique, aesthetic art style.
Failure is an option: There are no second chances in Between Horizons – the story will continue even if you upload a wrong solution and you will have to live with the consequences. A new and improved auto-save system ensures there’s no turning back. The course and ending of the story depend on your decisions and you cannot undo anything.
Between Horizons is a narrative sci-fi detective adventure. After 33 years of voyage, conflict aboard the Zephyr threatens to derail their mission. Unmask the masterminds in a gripping story that changes course and ending based on your choices.
