Cloud Chamber won plaudits in the Scandinavian press and a Game of the Year award during its Danish beta phase last year
Developed by Investigate North for PC and Mac, Cloud Chamber is an online mystery inspired by space and electronic music that follows the investigations of young scientist Kathleen Petersen into the Petersen Institute, one of Europe's most prestigious scientific centres. While investigating the suspicious circumstances of her mother's death there, Kathleen uncovers a skein of astonishing revelations about her father, the Institute and the existence of communicative rhythms in the fabric of space. Soon she is faced with an impossible choice between loyalty to her family and a duty to pass on what seems to be a mysterious warning to mankind.
Navigating through a series of 3D datascapes, players collect nodes of information and discuss them with other players. As they progress, players piece together what actually happened from fragments of found film footage, science journals, video diary entries, actual space footage and astrophotography. Only by working together with other players can the truth about Kathleen’s parents and the universe be uncovered.
Cloud Chamber will be available via Steam and other digital distributors on August 7th, 2014, for $19.99.
