Developer Pixel Night and publisher Iceberg Interactive announce plans to release Empathy: Path of Whispers, a third-person adventure game, onto Steam on May 16.
In the game, Players explore a seemingly abandoned world through the emotions and memories of the people who once inhabited it, trying to restore the world’s lost balance as you journey through its past. With a strong focus on storytelling and exploration, players will find themselves in a strange world created from people’s emotions and memories, which can be manipulated and explored. Those lost memories are the key to rebuilding the crumbling world back to its former state, discovering its mysterious past and halting an impending apocalypse. Through its innovative narrative mechanics, the game will challenge the player to explore and gain an understanding of the weird world they are traveling through.
“We can't wait for players to experience the intriguing world of Empathy, which we've been crafting for the past few years,” says Anton Pustovoyt, lead developer at Pixel Night. “It's an accomplishment we’re extremely proud of, and we hope players enjoy the unique experience they're about to embark on."
A new trailer also came out for the game showcasing its surreal and atmospheric world.
Empathy: Path of Whispers won the 2016 Casual Connect award for Best Narrative Game.
