It's been over four years since we first heard of Resonance, but the sound of its launch is finally drawing closer, as indie developer Vince Twelve has announced a publishing deal with Wadjet Eye Games.
Set in the near future, Resonance casts players in the roles of four different characters who become caught up in a race against time following the mysterious death of a particle physicist. The scientist's terrifying new discovery is hidden somewhere in a vault, and these four strangers must learn to trust each other to find it before a dangerous organization gets there first, as "in less than 72 hours, an event will take place that will change the world forever."
The first commercial offering by the developer of What Linus Bruckman Sees When His Eyes Are Closed has been in a various stages of production for some time now, but according to the developer's blog, the schedule has been ramped up considerably in recent months due to a partnership with Wadjet Eye Games. Not only will the company behind such games as Gemini Rue and the Blackwell series be publishing Resonance later this year, but Dave Gilbert is personally handling the voice directing, while his wife Janet has become the lead programmer for the game.
There is still no firm timetable for the game's completion, but we should finally see Resonance sometime in 2012.
