Unreliable Narrators has released a short new gameplay trailer for Two Falls (Nishu Takuatshina), its upcoming narrative single-player game set in 17th century Canada and told through the perspectives of Jeanne, a French woman who crossed the Atlantic to start anew, and Maikan, an Innu hunter trying to discover what is disturbing the forest.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Two Falls (Nishu Takuatshina) is a first-person single player, narrative-driven experience that presents contrasting perspectives on the first encounters between French settlers and Indigenous communities.
Explore 17th century Canadian wilderness in this 3D linear game and experience the intertwining journeys of Jeanne, a shipwrecked French woman stranded far from the French colonies and Maikan, a young Innu hunter who is trying to find out what is disturbing his native forest, land of his ancestors.
Meet Jeanne and Maikan
Jeanne is a French King’s Daughter with a heart full of hope to start a new life. Unfortunately, on one stormy night, her hopes turn into her darkest nightmare when her boat runs aground leaving her alone and unequipped to face the wilderness. The only other survivor is Capitaine, a cute English Shepherd traveling with her.
On the other side of the river, Maikan, a young and sharp Innu hunter feels a dreary shift in the atmosphere. His instincts tell him that something has been disturbing his native forest, bringing him to question his own beliefs.
Will you dare to experience this thrilling and enthralling mystery?
A Story Told Through Multiple Perspectives
Play successively as Jeanne and Maikan, uncovering their distinct realities, cultures, and their unique understandings of life. Each one of them has its own way to see, hear and feel the world, as represented through two artistic and musical directions.
All stories can be interpreted in many different ways, and Two Falls (Nishu Takuatshina) is no exception. Throughout the game, uncover and interpret different events from Maikan or Jeanne’s points of view. You will soon realize that a single event can have very different meanings for them, eventually finding yourself doubting your own beliefs.
There is no truth. There is only perception.
