With upcoming action RPG Quote, indie studio Vindit set out to create a game that would remind people of the magical games of their childhood – or be that game for a new generation. They wanted to create “something people can get all mushy and nostalgic about in the pub years from now.”

Quote’s world is beautiful yet dystopian. It’s reminiscent of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 but also has elements of Kurt Vonnegut, Umberto Eco, and Aldous Huxley. As Novella, priestess of Bliss, you traverse surreal landscapes while bashing the heads of heretical pursuers of knowledge and burning every book in sight. Your avian sidekick, Tatters, will help you along the way by enhancing your powers as you feed it with blasphemy.

The game mixes action with exploration. It features over 20 unlockable powers, and you’ll discover quotes from and homages to literature as you travel across a corrupt world.

Quote’s spoken narrative was written by Alec Meer and Dan Griliopoulos (No Man’s Sky, Rock Paper Shotgun) and features seven artfully hand-drawn chapters.

The action RPG will launch on Steam Early Access for Windows and Mac Winter 2016 with a full release to follow in 2017. We’ve got the trailer and screenshots below. Visit the official site for more.
