Fig.co is excited to reveal that the next Fig-funded game to be releasing will be Trackless, a first-person exploration and puzzle game unlike anything anyone has played before! Developed by 12 East Games, Trackless will be available on September 12 on PC platforms.
Set in the distant future and inspired by classic adventure games like Zork, Shadowgate, and King’s Quest, Trackless is an atmospheric adventure that sets you on a journey to complete a series of trials to gain access to The Object, a mysterious monolith. The game utilizes a mix of first-person adventuring elements and a text input system that hearkens back to the classic period of adventure gaming, making for a wholly unique gameplay experience.
Trackless casts the player as a Seeker, someone who has decided to take a journey into the mountains to attempt a series of trials that, if completed, will lead them to a monolith called The Object. No one knows what The Object is or where it came from, but clues exist surrounding this intractable mystery. Players will meet many people on the journey (some who will help along the way, and others might obstruct the quest) as they learn about the game’s strange future that pulls inspiration from real world places.
12 East Games is headed by Aubrey Serr, whose experience includes working on Wolfire games like Overgrowth and Receiver before setting off to create his own original games. Trackless also features an original soundtrack composed by Makeup and Vanity Set, adding a layer of synthesized ambience to the game’s intriguing world.
“Knowing Aubrey’s work, Trackless is sure to be like nothing else out there,” Steve Gaynor of Fullbright, creators of Gone Home and Tacoma, said. “I can’t wait to explore its strange and alien world for myself.”
The Trackless campaign achieved 108% of its goal, hitting $21,790 last fall. Backers had the opportunity to support the campaign through both pledges and investments.
Trackless launches on September 12 for PC on Steam. The game will also be featured at this year’s PAX Prime event in Seattle, Washington; more information on that will be revealed soon.
