Gemini Rue demo available for download
Gamefront, those crazy fellas previously known as FileFront, have an exclusive demo of point-and-click adventure game, Gemini Rue, up for grabs on the site.
In the game, developers Wadjet Eye put you in the shoes of Azriel Odin, an ex-assassin who arrives on the “rain-drenched planet of Barracus to find someone.”
Apparently, things don’t go as planned – as storylines in game are wont – and Odin must seek out other criminals he worked with to help him out.
However, over yonder in another galaxy, a fella by the name of Delta-Six wakes up in a hospital with no memory, and while not knowing where to go or whom to trust, vows to escape “before he loses his identity completely.”
“As fate brings these two men closer together, we discover a world where life is cheap, identities are bought and sold, and a simple quest for redemption can change the fate of a whole galaxy.”
Sounds awesome to us.
Gemini Rue, the Independent Game Festival Student Showcase winner in 2010 under the name Boryokudan Rue, will be made available on February 24 digitally and through a limited edition CD version. The download costs $14.99 and the limited edition CD, which will only be sold during the pre-order period, costs $24.99 and includes free shipping worldwide.
The CD ships in March, and includes the game, an MP3 soundtrack, and free access to the downloadable version when Gemini Rue launches online.
