Morning Men is a 2D animated turn-based combat adventure game, set in a post apocalyptic world with strange creatures and futuristic advanced technology.
Developers Pixel Federation has put together a story driven episode adventure that takes place in a desert wasteland, that is inspired by the golden-age tales of science fiction adventure.
You play as Luditte, a young woman that is a citizen of Citadel City, which is currently being run by Copper Hand, an organization that makes life quite difficult due to the fact that they control everything that happens in the city. After being branded as a heretic, Luditte is forced to flee the safety of the city and escape to the harsh conditions of the outside wasteland. The developers released a small teaser trailer, so take a look at the video below.
As mentioned above, Morning Men has the simple yet familiar turn-based combat system, where you fight a variety of enemies and mostly rely on strategy to turn the tides of battle in your favor.
The part where the game seems to shine though is the art style, as the game literally looks like a colorful animated comic book. To add to the aesthetic art style, the developers have also added in comic book style text boxes during the dialogue scenes to really immerse you into the story to have a comic book style narrative.
The developers say that Morning Men will also have branching story arcs, and characters will be affected by the choices you make. More importantly, it sounds like the story for Morning Men could become quite complex, as they say that choices are never really black and white and your actions can affect the story and characters in a variety of ways.
The developers released a second trailer showing a little bit more of what the game will be like, so take a look at the second trailer below.
Morning Men is scheduled for a Fall 2016 release date, so it should be releasing soon.
