SÃO PAULO, 7th February 2017—Produced in partnership with Failbetter Games (Fallen London, Sunless Sea), Voyageur is interactive science fiction literature set in a galaxy that recombines itself for each playthrough. The game is now available for iOS and Android through the App Store and Google Play store.
On a one-way trip towards the center of the galaxy, players will encounter strange life and unique civilizations, assemble a crew of misfits, and trade in strange and exotic cargo. If they’re careful and lucky, they might also unveil the secrets of the Descent Device—the alien machine that enables faster-than-light travel, but only towards the pull of the galactic core. Voyageur combines the characteristic-based narrative mechanics of Fallen London with the procedural story and world of a roguelike.
Voyageur is designed for iPhones, iPads, and supported Android phones and tablets. The US price point is set at $3.99.
