No regrets needed, as Gemini Rue demo launches a day before game
Written by Jack Allin — February 23, 2011 at 13:07
The future is now for sci-fi fans, as Wadjet Eye Games today released a demo for Gemini Rue, just a day before the game begins shipping.
The 2010 Independent Game Festival Student Showcase winner from Joshua Nuernberger casts players in the dual roles of Azriel Odin, an ex-assassin for the Boryokudan crime syndicate now seeking someone who's gone missing, and Delta-Six, a rehabilitation patient who's had his mind wiped at the oppressive Center 7 facility but is determined to escape. Their stories seemingly unrelated and set a galaxy apart, eventually they converge in dark and dramatic fashion in this increasingly bleak and sinister neo-noir thriller.
The demo begins right at the start of the game, with a brief introduction to Delta-Six before giving players control of Azriel on the rain-drenched planet of Barracus. The 140 MB sampler can be downloaded exclusively from FileFront. The full game is scheduled to release tomorrow at the Wadjet Eye website. If you like what you see, there's still a final chance to order the Limited Edition CD version of the game, though once the special offer expires on February 27th, the game will only be available as a download.
Our review of Gemini Rue is coming soon, but in the meantime, for more information be sure to check out our hands-on preview for some early first impressions.
