News Leave a Comment

Discover the surreal world of Empathy, a new first-person action adventure to be published by Iceberg Interactive in 2016. Empathy is being developed by Swedish development studio Pixel Night, who have a passion for storytelling through the creation of atmospheric worlds. Empathy is packed with beautiful visuals, an intriguing storyline and a branching narrative to explore.

Blinking against the light, you step into a world that seems broken apart, almost dead… Yet there is a pulse, beating faintly in the back of your mind. What has happened in this place, where the people are gone and their memories echo in the silence? Where emotions appear as physical things, hanging in the air, just waiting for someone to reach out…
Empathy is a first-person, action adventure game with a strong focus on storytelling and exploration. Players will find themselves in a surreal world, made from people’s emotions and memories, which they can manipulate and explore. Those lost memories are the key to rebuilding the crumbling world back to its former state, discovering its mysterious past and halting the impending apocalypse. Through its innovative narrative mechanics the game will challenge the player to explore and gain an understanding of the weird world they are traveling through.

“At Pixel Night we are big fans of exploration and story-heavy games and we have set out to create a game that would seamlessly merge the two. Empathy is a game that challenges the player as they explore its surreal world, instead of holding their hand. We are excited to bring Empathy to adventure fans, thanks to Iceberg Interactive, who have shown full support and understanding of our creative vision” says Anton Pustovoyt, Founder of Pixel Night.

Iceberg Interactive will bring Empathy to various digital download platforms, including Steam, and European retail stores in 2016. For more information on Empathy, please see the official website www.empathygame.org or like Empathy on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/empathygame
