Inspired by Ace Attorney and Zero Escape games, Exogenesis: Perils of Rebirth from indie developer Kwan is an adventure game/visual novel hybrid that combines point-and-click gameplay with the focus on storytelling found in visual novels.

Exogenesis takes place in post-apocalyptic Japan. It’s the story of wasteland treasure-hunter Yu Sayashi, who embarks on a quest to reanimate his late sister.

Six chapters are planned, to be comprised of 250,000+ words and numerous puzzles, translating into at least 20 hours of gameplay. The story will involve moral choices; your decisions will determine characters’ fates. Multiple endings and branching story paths will offer high replay value.

The game’s graphics will portray a stunning post-apocalyptic Japan and include real landmarks. Puzzles will be mind-boggling and contextual, making sense within the game’s story and environments.

Exogenesis: Perils of Rebirth will be released Q4 2014 on PC, Mac and Linux. The Kickstarter campaign runs until May 22, 2014. Developer Kwan would appreciate your support!

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
