Greenlit action-adventure game Continue?9876543210 is now available via Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows PC.
Continue? is the latest title from indie developer Jason Oda, creator of Skrillex Quest and The Perfect Strangers. Players assume the role of a "dead, failed video game character" left to wander in search of peace. By traveling to different towns and collecting lightning and prayers, players can move forward and build shelters to avoid being deleted forever. Characters and stages are randomly assigned.
According to the game's description, it's a title for "fans of cerebral games such as Gone Home, The Novelist and Papers, Please.
"The real story is that Continue? is an existential metaphor that explores the finite nature of existence and the beauty and tyranny of our desires within it," the description reads.
"This game is weird. You've probably figured that out by now. Everything in it however, has a deeper meaning behind it. All of the strange places you go to, people you talk to and scenarios you go through are part of a greater idea that I hope you spend a second or two trying to figure out and interpret...or not."
Continue?9876543210 is currently available for $7.99, a 20 percent discount off its usual price. For more on the game, watch the trailer below.
