＜ /reality ＞ – Philosophical Visual Novel Trailer Reveal & April Release Date
After a successful Kickstarter campaign, ＜ /reality ＞ will materialize into existence on April 18th, 2017 for PC, Mac and Linux.
Are you ready to dive into a new reality? The launch trailer shows Lilya, a withdrawn virtual reality nerd, taking the plunge into the neural world of Vitalia as a beta tester. But as the trailer hints, perhaps not all of InterMense’s incredible claims about their “perfect” technology are true. Lilya will soon find that she has signed up for much more than she expected. And the people she meets during the beta test may end up changing her life forever.
＜ /reality ＞ is inspired by The Matrix films and the .hack//Sign series. Due to the flexible visual novel medium, players will be able to make frequent choices which will change the story in both subtle and major ways – from simple dialogue choices – to affecting the two perspective character’s psychological states – to re-directing the course of the entire narrative and conclusion.
Check out the Trailer:
When Lilya arrives at InterMense to beta test the Penta, she expects to spend the weekend battling her social anxiety in exchange for the opportunity to enter the Vitalia simulation. But when Ben, another tester, refuses to leave the world of Vitalia, endangering his life, Lilya sees that she has become involved in something much more eye-opening than she realized. As Lilya, Ben, and Jacob’s fates intertwine, they must make some of the hardest decisions of their lives, and confront their own perceptions of the nature of existence.
