With the GamesCom convention being held this week in Germany, it was only a matter of time before the latest video trailers were publicly released, and now the first wave have arrived.
First up is Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island, the new adventure from Autumn Moon. Loosely inspired by that other "island" franchise, the comic adventure stars ghostly buccaneers Papa Doc, a vooju priest; Jane Starling, a lovely female pirate; and Blue Belly, a bashful ship's cook, who must work together to discover a way to reinhabit their bodies after being separated from them by a curse. That won't be easy, however, as ghosts have only limited ability to directly influence the world around them.
In Black Mirror 2, players step into the shoes of young man named Darren twelve years after the events of the first game. When a pretty woman he meets at a small photo shop in New England disappears, Darren decides to investigate, and his research eventually leads him to a very familiar English village called Willow Creek.
Last but certainly not least is Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain: The Origami Killer. A unique form of interactive movie that expands on the innovations of Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy, the new noir thriller promises multiple playable characters and gameplay that is based around story, emotional involvement, and the player’s decisions and interactions, rather than more traditional genre elements.
More trailers are still to come in the coming days, so stay tuned.
