Digital Media Workshop
has released a new video and five more screenshots
, a new point-and-click science-fiction adventure game set in a future world. What begins as simple exploration, turns into an evolving mystery that is revealed by physical clues, audio recordings, data archives and a damaged central computer system in need of repairs.
The 7-minute narrated preview video is packed with new in-game footage and for the very first time reveals art for several of the game characters. Digital Media Workshop also opens a window on the development process, discussing how key design and feature decisions for Prominence were inspired by some of the most beloved point-and-click adventure classics, and demonstrates new features that are less conventional to the genre, including options that players will have to customize their game experience, and the unlocking of character skills as the story develops.
Digital Media Workshop expects to release Prominence in early 2014 for Windows PCs (XP/Vista/7/8). The game will be available in English and several localized versions (including French, Italian, German, and Spanish subtitles).
