ERADICATE AUTHORS, BURN LIBRARIES AND WORSHIP IGNORANCE IN BEAUTIFUL ARPG ‘QUOTE’
Limited edition alpha access opens for literary-inspired action RPG on PC and Mac.
Quote, Vindit’s debut ARPG about bludgeoning knowledge from the heads of heretic intellectuals, is making its ‘First Draft’ alpha version available to buy and play for the first time today, at half price – but only for the next 48 hours.
Inspired by classic literature and surrealist art, Quote puts players in control of Novella, high priestess of Bliss, god of Ignorance. Join her and her bizarre bird-man sidekick Tatters on a crusade to rid the world of all knowledge. It’s the only way to ensure eternal peace – so what if it means untold suffering?
Featuring fully-voiced, real-time narration, over 20 unlockable abilities and a delicious blend of action and deduction, Quote is a dark, witty and explosive journey through a beautiful but ravaged world.
Quote pays loving tribute to literary legends including Angela Carter, Ernest Hemingway and Jorge Luis Borges, then orders you to slay every author and burn every book. So it goes.
Starting Wednesday, 14 December, First Draft players can experience the first two, beautifully hand-painted chapters of Quote. This limited time 50% discount price of £10/$12/€12 buys immediate access to the alpha version of Quote. The store will close on Friday, 16 December, with no more sales until Early Access in Q1 2017.
“We’re desperate to show Quote to the universe, but it’s early-ish days and so we’ve decided to limit it to an especially excited few before we fling the doors wide open,” explains Vindit’s own god of Ignorance, Robin Lacey. “The limited First Draft availability means we can establish a small but enthusiastic community with which to lay the groundwork for the eradication of all knowledge from the world. That will be Bliss indeed.”
The game will automatically update with new features and content as development continues. Early adopters will also gain access to exclusive content and private feedback forums – their chance to help shape the future of Quote.
The finished version of Quote is due for release in late 2017, and will feature six hand-drawn chapters that complete Novella’s odyssey of ignorance.
