If you’re on the lookout for a new first person adventure to partake in, you may want to check out Act 3 Games’ recently released, The Fidelio Incident.
See off the coast of Iceland, players embark on a journey after a violent plane crash to find their wife and, more mysteriously, make sure to conceal their identities before being rescued.
The Fidelio Incident was inspired by the likes of Dear Esther, Firewatch and other first person narrative games. The actual premise for the game was inspired by “Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio.”
The game was built on the Unreal Engine 4 and thus far, has received a mix of reviews from the few outlets that have reviewed it. According to Gameinformer, the game lasts around two hours so if you want to check it out you may want to do it now as it’s currently on sale for $9.99 on Steam. After the sale ends the price will go up to $14.99.
Act 3 Games “was founded by God of War 3 Art Director Ken Feldman in 2014. The Fidelio Incident was created and advised by many ex-members of the God of War franchise,” according to the official website. The studio is located in Los Angeles and will focus on creating “high quality narrative games.”
Below you’ll find a reveal trailer along with a few screenshots from the game. Currently, The Fidelio Incident is only available on PC, but the developers do have plans to bring the game to other platforms in the future.
