Heaven’s Vault, the newest adventure from 80 Days developer Inkle Ltd, is now available. It retails for $24.99, but it’s currently discounted by 15 percent on Steam until April 23rd. The story focuses on archaeologist Aliya Elasra as she attempts to make sense of lost ruins, artifacts, and hieroglyphics.
The big twist is that this journey takes place in Nebula, a mysterious region in space. Elasra is investigating the disappearance of a roboticist and eventually embarks on a quest to find Heaven’s Vault. Accompanied by robot companion Six, players will be set loose upon space-rivers, and must effectively piece together the history of Nebula on their own, deriving meaning from the various symbols.
Choices matter here and every action will have an impact on the future. This also applies to the NPCs that Elasra meets, and whose demeanour may change depending on your choices. Not everyone is out to help you and there may be more to some characters than meets the eye. Heaven’s Vault is available for PC and PS4.
