Inevitable Studios, an independent developer founded by veteran game developer Cord Smith, has announced Always in Mind, a narrative-based action platformer coming to PC via Steam. A release date was not announced.
“Always in Mind is our debut game and the product of our ambition to craft authentic, positive, and unique experiences that we feel the industry—and the world—need right now,” said Inevitable Studios founder and game director Cord Smith in a press release. “By blending powerful narrative themes with intuitive controls and deep action-oriented gameplay, we invite gamers of all skill levels to experience the mind-bending, heart-warming moments we hope they’ll discuss and cherish for years to come.”
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
When an accidental fall knocks 12-year-old Teddy into a coma, he’ll dive headlong into his own subconscious, a vast and surreal landscape of unlimited possibilities.
Joined by an AI implant known as “Proxy,” Teddy must uncover the awe-inspiring powers of his mind in order to escape it, or risk becoming trapped in thought forever.
- Surreal Adventure – Embark on an unpredictable journey through which you’ll wield awesome abilities across mind-bending dreamscapes.
- Effortless Exploration – Jump, warp, slide, and glide through every corner of Teddy’s mind, and experience the added thrill of high-speed sledding excursions.
- Stellar Story-Telling – Gorgeous visuals, dynamic cameras, and an original soundtrack keep you fully immersed and in total control of your narrative.
- Artificial Friendship – Proxy’s not only a companion, guide, and buddy—he’s also the key to re-connecting your shattered family.
