Blood Music and Theta Division have revealed the official release date for VirtuaVerse, as the game will be coming out on May 12th, 2020. We’ve been checking out this cyberpunk point-and-click adventure for a minute as it has an old-school ’90s feel to it with a modern spin. The story looks pretty dope and the graphics will give you a complete throwback. You can read more about VirtuaVerse below, along with the new trailer for the game.
In a future not so far away, one Artificial Intelligence prevailed above all other AI’s and their governments. Society has migrated to a permanently integrated reality connected to a single neural network which continuously optimizes their experiences by processing personal data. Nathan, an outsider still refusing to comply with the new system, is making a living off the grid as a smuggler of modded hardware and cracked software. Geared up with his custom headset, he is among the few that can still switch AR off and see reality for what it is.
He shares an apartment in the city with his girlfriend Jay, a talented AR graffiti writer whose drones have been bit-spraying techno-color all over the augmented space in the city. Waking up one day, Nathan finds Jay has disappeared overnight, breaking his custom headset and leaving a cryptic message on their bathroom mirror. Disconnected and determined to find out what happened to Jay, he finds himself tangled up in an unexpected journey involving Jay’s hacker group and a guild of AR technomancers.
