Reflector Entertainment has unveiled the teaser trailer for the studio’s first video game, Unknown 9: Awakening. The game is set to be released sometime in 2021.
According to the press release, Unknown 9: Awakening “represents the tentpole of a much larger content ecosystem that is being built around the ambitious Unknown 9 Storyworld.” This is a 3rd-person narrative-driven action-adventure game. The protagonist is a girl named Haroona. The new teaser trailer showcases her Fold abilities.
The official description reads:
Raised on the streets of Kolkata, India and haunted by visions of her own death, Haroona struggles to understand her mysterious innate abilities to manipulate the unseen. A mentor soon helps Haroona hone her gifts, teaches her to access the mysterious hidden dimension known as The Fold and propels her on a journey to unlock the mysteries of this new realm.
Here’s the teaser trailer!
The video, in my opinion, looks very impressive. Also, I’m all for games with PoC leads.
“Unknown 9: Awakening is Reflector’s first game. It’s a passion project being undertaken by a small team of industry veterans that want to do things differently,” says Alexandre Amancio, CEO at Reflector Entertainment. “Our game features a complex heroine that must come to terms with who she is. The game is set in the Unknown 9 universe, a modern Storyworld that centers on humanity being on the edge of either transcendence or self-destruction.”
The Unknown 9 universe is ready to offer fans as much content as they wish. There’s a mystery-thriller novel, Unknown 9: Genesis, by bestselling author Layton Green, an original podcast called Unknown 9: Out of Sight, and a comic book, Unknown 9: Torment.
While these offerings are standalone products, when consumed together, they will help fans appreciate a broader narrative featured in the Unknown 9 universe.
You can learn more by visiting the official website – unknown9.com. At the website, fans can participate in Unknown 9: Chapters, “an interactive, community-driven experience, created by Montreal studio Alice & Smith, that lets fans decipher mysteries of the Unknown 9 universe.”
Participation rewards you with access to parts of the novel, podcast, and comic book for free for a limited time.
As for Reflector Entertainment, it’s headquartered in Montreal. Reflector promotes itself as “a new breed of studio working with top talent to create high-quality content for a global audience.”
From what I can tell, the entire concept behind the Unknown 9 Storyworld does sound very interesting.
