Vince Twelve, the tall person responsible for the cheekily named indie ensemble xii games and the creator of such gems as Anna and What Linus Bruckman Sees When His Eyes Are Closed, is happily and most definitely back. What's more, he's not come empty handed either. Oh no, he's got Resonance with him.
Now, Resonance is one of those games I've been eagerly awaiting ever since it was announced (and promptly blogged on Gnome's Lair) back in 2007 and haven't mentioned since the final days of 2008. Nor have I seen anything really new about it since that lovely and happily successful Kickstarter campaign, that did admittedly provide us with an incredibly intriguing playable glimpse at the game.
Apparently though, the wait is over as Vince has secretly been working with Wadjet Eye Games for over a year now and the game will actually be released within this very year; probably even early this summer. It will also, as the Wadjet Eye tradition dictates, come with a full professional voice-over that will feature the voice of Logan Cunningham. Yes, that is the voice of the excellent narrator in Bastion.
As for the game itself, it has always been an incredibly ambitious and visually rich adventure game of the indie variety. Interestingly and despite the retro-inspired look and feel of Resonance, it will try to innovate in numerous ways by sporting a unique rewind mechanism, short and long term memory inventories and four playable characters. Judging by the works of Vince and that early demo I mentioned above, you'll be amazed reader!
Keep your eyes (and internets) focused here and here (but also, well, here actually). Exciting things are bound to be unveiled. The stars are right.
