SÃO PAULO, 23rd June 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. After its February launch on mobiles, a Windows and Linux release is now planned for late 2017.
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.
The PC version of Voyageur will feature all of the same content and mechanics as the mobile version, but with an all-new user interface designed for desktops and laptops. It will be available for Windows and Linux.
