Daedalic Entertainment’s upcoming title is a rather tense one. State of Mind is a “futuristic thriller game delving into transhumanism” says the description and this way, it takes its place amongst my list of highly-anticipated games of 2018.
State of Mind focuses on heavy matters like separation, disjuncture and reunification, in a world that is torn between a dystopian material reality and a utopian virtual future. An emotional dystopia, we may call it.
The game features two separate game worlds with multiple playable characters. We step into the shoes of Richard Nolan who is a father and journalist from Berlin who discovers that he has been subject to an accident and as a result, he is still living with incomplete memories. After that, we will suffer what he suffers while he begins a journey of salvation. We will be there for him while he is trying to bring his family and memories back.
Here are the key features of the game:
- 3rd Person Adventure
- Story-driven gameplay experience
- Switching between two game worlds
- Multiple story layers
- Multiple playable characters
- Unique artstyle
State of Mind is currently planned for a 2018 release on current-gen platforms. Stay tuned for more!
