On 30 Aug, through Gamescom 2020, developer PolyAmorous and publisher All in! released a short cinematic trailer for their upcoming release of Paradise Lost, a narrative-driven adventure game focused around an alternate history of events following, or apparently, during WWII.
The trailer is an interesting one which doesn't give the game anything more notable than we've seen already, however, is a nice appetiser with regards to the anticipated emotion-driven narrative the developers have already boasted.
We see the camera pan around a small enclosed firefight in a bunker, occupants in stasis, carefully showcasing the graphic quality of the environment and characters, as well as boasting the developer's skills in photography and camera angles.
Paradise lost is coming to PC at some point in the remainder of 2020, with an expected release on next-gen consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X, presumably in 2021.
Check out a previous trailer, of gameplay and developer commentary, that shows the kind of Bioshock-esque environment you can expect yourself in when you get the game and also explains more about the story setting they have based the title on:
The concept is an absolute banger, whereby WWII does not end in 1945. The game follows the events forthwith of this backdrop but whether the story is supposed to have loose metaphorical connotations relating to the story portrayed by John Milton in his epic literary piece of the same name, remains unknown until we play the game. A tantalising thought, none the less.
Stay tuned to SkyPunk for more on this in the near future.
