In order to bring Alter Ego to North America, German publisher bitComposer needed a distributing alter ego of its own. Fortunately for gamers, now they've found one in Viva Media, who will be releasing the dark murder mystery this July.
The latest adventure from Future Games casts players in the dual roles of a thief named Timothy Moor and Police Detective Bristol. The late-19th century English town of Plymouth has been caught in the grips of a series of gruesome murders following the death of Sir William, a man renowned for his cruelty during his life. As Bristol investigates the latest crimes, Timothy wants only to escape for a new life in America, but soon finds himself drawn deeper into the effort to expose the town's dark secret.
Alter Ego will reportedly feature 30 different characters to interact with across 80 different locations, some of which are hinted at in the game's trailer. For more details about the game, be sure to check out the official website.
