Today we’re proud to announce the development of Exim!
Exim is a game of death, deduction and debate with a complex branching narrative. Drawing inspiration from games and series like Danganronpa, Ace Attorney and AI: The Somnium FIles, you’ll need to use your detective skills and argue your case to find the culprits to a string of murders. Part Visual Novel and part third person exploration, the game features an immersive narrative experience with a world that reacts to your choices, meaning you might have to live with, or die by, the outcome of your decisions.
The game takes place in the somewhat distant future. A colonization mission, one of the first to leave the solar system, is taking place and you – along with a collection of elite colonists – have been chosen for the mission. Unfortunately, due to a miscalculation, you and your fellow crew have been awakened from cryostasis to discover yourselves stranded on an uninhabitable planet with a damaged ship and only a handful of survivors. With dwindling resources and the threat of imminent asphyxiation on a remote planet, you and the other crew members must repair the ship, prepare yourself for rescue, and avoid the stresses the situation puts upon you all.
And then a body is discovered, the only possible culprit being one of your crew mates.
When the worst occurs, it’s up to you to find evidence, build your argument then weed out the cause and the perpetrator. Be aware though, your choices and accusations may have dire consequences for those around you – the situation is never as black and white as you think.
Development is already under way, with a solid start on some of the games systems, design and plot, and we’ll have more to show you in due course. We’ve still got a long way to go, but wanted to give you insight into our process, as well as updates on the game.
We hope you’ll stick around and look forward to sharing our game with you!
