Today, independent developer Vindit’s action RPG, Quote, launches on PC via Steam Early Access. And to celebrate, the developer has released a — you guessed it — launch trailer.
Quote is a darkly comic action role playing game that tasks you with ridding the world of knowledge and bringing about an age of total, unquestioning stupidity.
Inspired by surrealist art and classic literature, Quote puts players in control of Novella, the high priestess of Bliss, god of Ignorance. She and her book-gobbling avian sidekick Tatters are on a crusade to scour all wisdom, literature, and learning from the face of the planet. For Novella, a world free from facts, truth, and knowledge is a safe and happy world.
The game boasts fully-voiced narration, a compelling blend of action and deduction, and over 40 unlockable abilities.
Early Access players will be able to play the game’s first two, “beautifully hand-painted” chapters, as well as the endless new adventures that are offered in the game’s procedurally-generated Infinite Library mode.
Vindit founder Robin Lacey accompanied the announcement with the following statement:
“2017 seems an appropriate time to be launching a game about a world in which truth and knowledge have been eradicated. We’ve been building Quote for over two years already, working hard to make something very special – a unique world and story, all clad in darkly delicious, hand-drawn art. We’re so excited that people are finally about to see what we’ve been up to.”
Quote is available to purchase for the price of $14.99/£11.99 via Steam. A 15% launch discount will be available for a limited time only. How limited, wasn’t divulged. As you would expect, the game will automatically update with new features and content as development continues. According to Vindit, Early Access users “will also be able to help shape the future of Quote.”
The finish version of the game is expected to release sometime in late 2017, and will feature more hand-drawn chapters and abilities. Below, you can check out the new launch trailer, as well as some of the game’s screenshots:
