True Legacy is a text-driven puzzle adventure game.
Investigate a politically sensitive murder in a dystopian, 21st century metropolis, riven by rampant economic and genetic inequality. Both your ethics, and puzzle solving skills will be tested in this sci-fi noir thriller.
Taking the role of investigator Claire Thornhill, players navigate the world of True Legacy via interactive text, immersive 3D scenes and forensic puzzle gameplay. The branching narrative pushes you to express your ethics in a harsh world transformed by unregulated technological advances.
Developed in partnership with Failbetter Games and the Wellcome Trust, True Legacy is a plausible glimpse into the future. Researched with the help of various UK universities and experts working at the cutting edge of robotics, AI, and genetics, the noir thriller plot presents the player with very realistic dilemmas around the ethics of labour market automation, population surveillance and genetic engineering.
