Investigate North’s social FMV adventure/thriller/ARG Cloud Chamber has been dated and priced.
Specifically, it’ll be out on 7 August (which is a week on Thursday) and it’ll cost you $19.99/€14.99/£11.99, with a 10% launch discount also available.
Cloud Chamber has you explore a dreamy datascape in which you watch videos, read notes, and generally try to piece together the events surrounding the Petersen Institute. Along the way you’ll uncover betrayal, murder, and – possibly – some rather important revelations regarding the fabric of space. Every single node of information also has an attached message board of sorts, where you can converse with other players to jointly piece together the story.
I spent a few hours with the beta earlier this month, and while I can’t say I was entirely convinced that I’d want to spend a lot longer with Cloud Chamber, a fair bit of that possibly came down to the fact that I don’t really partake in ARGs. You can have a read of my early thoughts over here. Launch trailer below!Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
