To be announced
Inua is a mystical point and click adventure about three protagonists with intertwined fates, living decades apart in the Great North. Manipulate their minds and restore the original balance of life.
A Tale Inspired By Inuit Spirituality
10,000 years ago lived Nanurluk, the great polar bear. One day, driven by ambition and the desire to prove their superiority, three humans decided to attack her. After a long and dire hunt, they killed her, disrupting the balance between nature and mankind. Embody the spirit of Nanurluk in her quest to restore the natural cycle of the world. Influence Taïna, Peter and Simon, three characters separated by more than a century but whose destinies are mysteriously intertwined.
Take Control Of Time and Space
Explore the mysterious Canadian far north, navigate through time and interact with past events to modify the present. In this narrative game, you will have to untangle space and time to solve mind bending puzzles and guide the characters. Each level is made up of several scenes taking place in the same location, but at different times. As you move from scene to scene and from era to era, you will have to guide Taïna, Peter and Simon through the ages.
A story Of Myth and history
The original and supernatural scenario of Inua is based on a very real story: that of the Franklin Expedition, a British mission in the 19th century set to explore the then unknown Arctic. Shipwreck, illness, mutiny: by gathering clues, retrace the tragic journey of this expedition, whose fate is still largely unknown.
