September 2nd, Warsaw, Poland
After teasing the game a couple of days ago via their social media channels, which resulted in tons of speculations about the nature of the project, Telepaths’ Tree is now ready to share some more details about their upcoming title. Inner Chains – the game the team has been working on for the past couple of months, will be a FPS horror embedded in an unprecedented surreal world. Coming to PC and fueled by Unreal Engine 4, Inner Chains will offer gamers a unique opportunity to find themselves in a world that no longer resembles the one they’ve known. The world that is hunting them and where they’re only a small part of it, trying to unravel its mysteries.
Earth. Distant future. Several million years have passed and the planet is no longer what it used to be. Nature by evolution, striving for excellence and adapting to the prevailing conditions began to resemble technology, thus creating biomechanical shapes and mechanisms. Technology itself possessing artificial intelligence after the fall of humanity also tried to adapt to the same conditions. As a result a very strong symbiosis between technology and nature had been established and since then, they have evolved together. In this world, it is not entirely clear what is organic and what is not.
After millions of years of change the human being reappears, but its civilization development stopped at the equivalent of our medieval times. People have the technology, but without much awareness of what it is and how it works. For them this is a natural environment, so they take the advantage of what the world gives them. Some social mechanisms though that have always accompanied man, such as faith, oppression and manipulation, are still present.
Inner Chains is a game where players will get a chance to get to know the world and themselves. They’ll be fighting for their own life and survival to soon discover the secret revealing mechanisms, that guide the rulers of their part of this dark and mystical world.
"By throwing gamers into this dark and mysterious universe, we wanted to make them feel a bit lost at the beginning. But in the same time to encourage them to discover its secrets, so soon enough they learn how to use the environment against their enemies" – said Tomasz Strzałkowski, CEO. "Our approach when designing the levels was to always give players more than just one way to achieve their goal. We didn’t want to lead them by the hand, as the freedom of how you handle the situation was one of our top priorities. So instead we’ve implemented a system of clues and hints, that will help gamers find the right solution. But how they’ll face this or other opponent or the hostile place, depends entirely on them" – Strzałkowski added.
While wandering from forgotten, mountain ruins, through a dangerous forest where flora and fauna become mortal enemies, to the great temples built by a mysterious caste, whose existence and objectives hide many secrets – players will reveal Inner Chains story carved in those places and use it to fight their enemies.

less risks (not like ubi are particualrly great in that regard anyway) and just barrier for them to do their job. (2 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (2 Hours ago)
Also, for the first time in BioWare's history, they are finally using full facial capture to record the actor's performance. Plus its the first time the Mass Effect team is using the Frostbite engine. (2 Hours ago)
