Wild Unknown is a first-person exploration game by the team at Island Bar Games. It was recently revealed that the game will be coming out on PC on March 6th via Steam. It will retail for $9.99 USD in digital format.
You soon set out into the wild as you wake up in a forest with no knowledge of who you are. The narrative and puzzles will work in a similar way; You’ll come across items and clues that have been left behind and over time you’ll piece them together to progress. The game will also feature ‘numerous endings’ and the choices you make throughout your playthrough will answers the story’s dark mysteries in different way.
As Joe Sansone, the owner of Island Bar, explains:
“Wild Unknown acknowledges that players are smart and asks some big questions about human nature and consciousness, the significance of intent, and the possibility of redemption. What players believe about these things will greatly impact how they perceive the story.”
