Developed with Unreal Engine, State of Mind is a new futuristic thriller from Daedalic Entertainment coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Steam (PC/Mac/Linux) next month. Set in Berlin in the year 2048, players take on the role of Richard Nolan as he slowly loses grip as his memories begin to slip away.
The stark minimal low-poly visuals represent the, err, fractured State of Mind of protagonist Richard.
The world is on the brink. Lack of resources, polluted air and water, crime on the rise, and rampant wars have left populations disillusioned with and detached from reality. Drones and humanoid robots replace humans in the public sector; everything is interconnected, and surveillance has become omnipresent.
It’s down to Richard to find out what’s going on, both in his own life and in the world around him. It’s an investigation that draws him closer to the new and supposedly perfect virtual world “City 5” that more and more people depressed with their real lives are embracing.
“State of Mind is a game about transhumanism and its all-in bet on the future,” explains the game’s author, Martin Ganteföhr. “It is, however, not a game about the technology of tomorrow, but about tomorrow’s people. In the center of this narrative is the motif of separation and reunion. What happens, if the future creates fractures between body and mind? Between reality and constructs? Between biological and virtual ego?”
State of Mind looks to be a though-provoking investigation adventure and futuristic thriller. It launches August 15.
