Microïds today revealed a new gameplay video of their adventure game, Subject 13, focusing on some of the many puzzles the player will have to solve to progress in the scenario.
Microïds also announced today that the pleas of Linux fans have been heard and answered, with a Linux version of the game added alongside PC, Mac, and mobile platforms to be completed if the game’s basic Kickstarter goal of $40,000 is met. With six days to go, only roughly $13,000 additional pledges are required to meet the initial goal, with additional platforms such as Oculus Rift on tap if stretch goals are met.
In Subject 13, players will take on the role of Franklin Fargo, a physics professor who has become a recluse after the tragic death of his fiancée. One morning, he wakes up in an abandoned underground scientific facility with no external contact other than a mysterious voice. The voice calls him “Subject 13.” Fargo’s goal is to not only set himself free but discover the true reasons for his imprisonment—can he escape from the prison of his past?
Subject 13 is full of secret caches and mechanisms that the player must discover, analyze and activate. The game’s difficulty gradually ramps up as the story unfolds, promising a game open to all virtual adventurers. If the first puzzles serve as an introduction most players can quickly solve, completing the entire adventure should be a real challenge even for the experts.
The Subject 13 Kickstarter campaign will end on August 8. It more than ever needs the support of adventure game fans.
