Know anyone named Blake? Tell them that there’s been a game made about them called Blake The Visual Novel and watch them relish in the satisfaction that they’ve made it. It’s coming to Steam in the summer.
The ‘C word’ hasn’t been mentioned in the write-up, but the story is set in a perpetually rainy and tech-advanced city of New Stone. You play the Blake in the title; a regular dood by day, vigilante (without a costume?) by night.
The narrative is slightly mysterious, but there’s a note that you’ll enter a neo-noir parallel universe in Blake The Visual Novel – a game from Ori Mees and LegendOri Productions. In the trailer, you’ll see that you have dialogue options in this visual novel that will impact whether you can prevent ‘tragic events from materialising’.
As a graphic novel fused with a visual one, it’s clear that this stands on its own comic book feet when it comes to the illustrations – they’re fantastic. But how do the interactive elements play out? We’ll have to wait for a few more months first.
