Today's gamescom: Opening Night Live was focused on updates on already announced titles, but there's no denying that one of the few never-before-seen games — Unknown 9: Awakening — deserves a closer look.
Unknown 9: Awakening will be the first entry in a brand-new series — and we're not talking only about video games here, but also books, comics, and scripted podcasts — as Montreal-based game developer Reflector Entertainment is planning to create their very own shared world — officially called the Unknown 9 universe.
When it comes to Unknown 9: Awakening, it's a next-gen third-person adventure game inspired by The X-Files, The Matrix, Heroes, and Indiana Jones. The game follows the story of Haroona, a young girl raised on the streets of Kolkata India and haunted by visions of her own death. During her journey of self-discovery, she will access a mysterious hidden dimension — known as The Fold — and try to unlock its dark mysteries.
"Unknown 9: Awakening is Reflector's first game. It's a passion project being undertaken by a small team of industry veterans that want to do things differently," Reflector Entertainment CEO Alexandre Amancio (Assassin's Creed: Revelations and Unity Creative Director) said. "Our game features a complex heroine that must come to terms with who she is. The game is set in the Unknown 9 universe, a [...] Storyworld that centers on humanity being on the edge of either transcendence or self-destruction."
