Adam's Venture: Origins Trailer

By Mark Delaney, 1 year ago
Dutch indie studio SOEDESCO will be bringing an enhanced and remastered version of their 2009 episodic PC game, Adam's Venture, to Xbox One under the name Adam's Venture: Origins. In fact, it's not just a remake, says the studio, but an "extensive remake of the originally announced game, reimagining the franchise as a fully formed non-violent, next generation adventure game."

The title is meant to be narrative-heavy with exploration and puzzles making up the bulk of the gameplay. "Non-violent" refers to the game's lack of combat mechanics. It seems the titular hero in Adam's Venture doesn't get obstructed with nefarious treasure hunters the same way Lara Croft and Nathan Drake do.

The adventure begins in 1928, when a routine excavation of a French church leads to the discovery of a strange scroll bearing Templar symbols. What follows is a race to uncover the location of the four rivers mentioned in the Book of Genesis – and unpick what this could mean.
For a peek at what gameplay will look like, check out the trailer below.

The game's release date is "set to be revealed shortly".
