Genre: Archaeological Science Fiction Narrative Adventure
Release date: Spring 2019
Platform: Windows and PS4 initially; Mac and iOS later

Heaven’s Vault is a non-linear, open-world archaeological science fiction narrative adventure from inkle, the creator of 80 Days and the Sorcery! series. It also looks as though it could give your brain quite a workout.

You’ll become archaeologist Aliya Elasra who, along with her robot sidekick Six, investigates an ancient network of scattered moons called The Nebula. Reveal its secrets by exploring ancient ruins and translating inscriptions. Decipher an entire hieroglyphic language.

Every inscription you find has a meaning that’s narratively significant and advances the story. But there’s a catch…you will never be sure if your translations are correct.

Heaven’s Vault has a unique art style that combines beautiful 3D environments and hand-drawn 2D art. It has a diverse cast of characters who remember what you say. Some are friendly, some are cautious and others will try to trick you.

Your every action will count. Your every decision will shape the story.

Heaven’s Vault is to be released this Spring on Windows and PS4. Mac and iOS will follow at a later date.

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.
