Niels Wetterberg, Producer at Investigate North said:
[blockquote]From the beginning, our focus with Aporia was always to use the environment alone, without any dialogue, to convey an immersive story of an ancient world in ruins. Today, we’re excited to share the story of Aporia: Beyond the Valley with the world and can’t wait for everyone to explore and discover the open world in their own way.[/blockquote]
Aporia: Beyond The Valley brings a unique approach to the art of storytelling, by not using dialogue or text. It offers new, interesting puzzle mechanics, and elaborate environmental storytelling within an immersive world.
The mystical world of Ez’rat Qin – once a mighty civilization, now a crumbled ruin.
You awake after hundreds of years of sleep, in an abandoned land and no memory of your past. Immersed in this world of dark beauty, thrilling mystery and ancient puzzles, you embark on a quest to find out what happened in this world, and to discover who you are.
