Set on a planet where an uneasy alliance between humans and technologically advanced aliens has caused an increased rift between the rich and the poor, Cassie and Annie must uncover the truth of what happened to the previous inhabitants of this land and how to get off this ravaged planet. As they solve increasingly complex puzzles, they’ll traverse high tech research labs, opulent floating cities, and alien citadels. They’ll also encounter alien flora and fauna, like the mischievous ratcoons, which are exactly what they sound like.
“We wanted to create a game that hearkens back to the days of solitary puzzle-solving expeditions like the original Tomb Raider, yet with the warm humor and humanity of Portal and The Talos Principle,” said Eero Kuurne, Creative Director at Mindhaven Games. “Sky Beneath takes that classic gameplay, but marries it with a slick, modern presentation that’s equal parts cerebral and spectacular.”
