After a year interstate at college, Lux Hart returns to her parents’ rural home for summer break, only to find it deserted. A series of clues leads her to uncover their secret membership of the shadowy government organisation The Redaction Commission.
The Redaction Commission is tasked with covering up anomalies and strange events to avoid mass panic across the population. They were at Loch Ness in 1933, and at Roswell in 1947, and countless sightings of werewolves, vampires and UFOs across the twentieth century.
The Commission has acquired alien technology which can radically modify human DNA, and it after enlisting Lux to help find her parents, her DNA is resequenced, giving her enhanced abilities akin to superpowers.
Armed with her new abilities – and a gabby but useful AI implant called RHETT – Lux sets off in search of her parents. To find them, she will dig into their open cases, traveling from location to location to look for clues and talk to those who may have information on her parents’ whereabouts.
As Lux collects clues across various worlds she’ll ultimately discover an awful truth about the resequencing technology and damning evidence against the Redaction Commission itself. Now a target hunted by the Commission, can Lux wield the power of her resequenced DNA to save her parents…and uh, the world as we know it?
Development is on track for launch in early 2018.
resequenced is a 3D story-based action RPG focused on exploration and battle, with a liberal dose of humour. It’s heavily influenced by Fallout, Borderlands, and similar games…but also taking inspiration from old-school comic books, and fantasy movies like Jurassic Park, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and the entire Marvel universe.
Lead writer Wes Locher has created a compelling and engaging story around a college student’s search for her parents, and their connection with the mysterious underground agency The Redaction Commission. His script is brought to life by professional voice actors, led by Laura Lockwood and Bryan Pike.
Over the course of the game – across twelve distinctly different environments – you’ll explore a deserted nuclear testing facility, a derelict Chinese spacecraft, a post-apocalyptic city where dinosaurs roam, an abandoned military facility in the middle East, underground caves and snowfields, and much more.
Do you like first-person shooters, or do you prefer third-person adventures where you cast spells? In resequenced, you can choose first or third person mode – and whether to use guns or abilities – to suit your gameplay style.
There are hundreds of collectible items in resequenced, incuding documents, artifacts, audio files and other items, in addition to consumables such as ammo, medkits, shield recharge packs and more. You can also acquire weapon parts, which can be used to upgrade your guns. Many levels contain special outfits which Lux can equip to empower her with stat bonuses, and change her appearance in third-person mode. Each level also contains several challenges to complete for additional rewards and XP.
Full support for trophies and achievements and several other features are being developed for the game.
resequenced is designed to be easily expanded with additional missions via DLC, but you’ll still experience a lengthy campaign over several hours without any additional content!
