Indie game publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Dragon Slumber have officially announced that Tech Support: Error Unknown will be launching for PC, Mac, and Linux on February 27th, 2019 on Steam and major digital retailers. The news is supported with the reveal of a trailer and key art, which highlight the many choices you’ll be forced to make during the game’s branching narrative.
The award-winning adventure (Best Indie Pitch, MIGS18) casts players as new employees of the IT department of Quasar Telecommunications, a multinational-juggernaut of a corporation. Players soon discover, though, that Quasar isn’t all the news media makes it out to be. Tech Support: Error Unknown follows the long-running, cyber-tug-of-war between Quasar and Tech Support’s hacker-faction, Indigo. Players can choose an alliance with the IT group as one of many available paths to pursue.
Using the Spectrum OS virtual desktop interface, you’ll chat with customers and colleagues through an organic, procedural dialogue system, solving puzzles and making discoveries to inform decisions that radically affect the narrative’s outcome. Will you remain loyal to your employment overlords, or sabotage them from within? Whatever your story – Every choice matters.
“The reception for the game thus far has completely blown me away, and I couldn’t be more excited to get the full version in player’s hands. Although I can’t condone Indigo’s vigilantism, I do believe that these allegations against Quasar should be reviewed under the due process of the law,” cheekily says Dragon Slumber’s Kevin Giguère.
Eager applicants can try a free demo on Steam, Gamejolt or Itch.io for PC, Mac and Linux, join the Launch Day Live Stream through the Steam store page, and wishlist the game to be notified as soon as the full version of Tech Support: Error Unknown is made available on February 27th 2019.
