NEW YORK - June 19, 2012 - Wadjet Eye Games, an independent publisher of retro-styled adventure games, is announcing that Resonance is now available for PC download from Resonance-Game.com. The first commercial release from indie developer Vince Twelve, Resonance is a complex and lovingly-crafted interactive narrative that has been under development for more than five years.
Resonance merges classic point-and-click gameplay with innovative, contemporary storytelling thanks to its nostalgic pixel-art graphics, suspenseful plotline, and creative puzzles. A brilliant particle physicist has just died under suspicious circumstances, leaving the classified details of his powerful new technology locked away in a hidden vault. Now fate has thrown together four strangers -- the scientist's protégé, a doctor, a police officer, and an investigative reporter -- to find the vault before this potentially catastrophic weapon falls into the wrong hands. Controlling each of these protagonists, Resonance players will decide when they should work together, which secrets to guard, and who to trust. But loyalties will be tested as the clock ticks down to global disaster, and you may discover that you've been mistaken all along...
Wadjet Eye Games is selling Resonance as a $9.99 DRM-free download from the game's official website. Through July 25, Wadjet Eye is also offering a packaged Collector's Edition for $24.99 (includes free worldwide shipping). A Steam release will follow this summer; until then, anyone who supports the development team by purchasing Resonance through the official website will get a free Steam voucher that can be redeemed immediately.
"After so much hard work, it's unbelievable to finally reach the finish line and share Resonance with the world," says Vince Twelve. "I'm grateful for the support of an amazing team of artists and musicians, not to mention the great folks at Wadjet Eye Games, without whom Resonance would have never come this far. And I'd like to give a special 'thank you' to all of the fans and backers who motivated me to work late into the night for five long years. I sincerely hope Resonance has been worth the wait!"
