Fool’s Theory and IMGN.PRO’s Seven: The Days Long Gone no longer has any days to countdown towards its release. The game is officially out and available for PC via the Steam store. You can pick up a copy right now for $29.99, with a 10% discount for anyone who purchase the game within the first week of release.
In talking about its availability and store pricing, I’m sure many of you are wondering what the heck the game is? Well, it’s a throwback to the old-school isometric action titles from the yesteryears of gaming. It combines stealth, real-time tactics, and multi-tiered levels that afford for verticality within the three-quarters view perspective. For those of you who are fans of the isometric genre, you might know that multi-tiered levels aren’t common in those kind of games due to the way most engines are built, but Fool’s Theory wanted to try something different.
Jakub Rokosz, the dead of development at Fool’s Theory, explained in detail what they were going for with the game, mentioning in the press release…
“SEVEN: THE DAYS LONG GONE will redefine exploration in Isometric RPG genre. It first appears as if it is a traditional isometric RPG with a compelling story line and an ecosystem that reacts to you and your actions. But our main goal was to really bring something new to this genre and redefine how people experience this type of game,”
“SEVEN: THE DAYS LONG GONE has a unique climbing system that allows for greater exploration by free-traversing obstacles of any height, vertically and horizontally. This mechanic further opened up the world for us as developers so that we could be more imaginative in our mission and side-quests creation process.”
Accompanying the news about the game’s launch is a cinematic trailer to give you an idea of what to expect. You can check it out below.
Rated ‘M’ for Nudity, Sexual Content and Violence? Well, okay then. I’m guessing this isn’t a game for the easily triggered.
The cinematic sequence basically gives you a rundown of the lore behind Seven and some of the motivations behind the characters in the story.
As for the gameplay itself… it’s very similar to Daedalic and Mimimi Productions’ Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun.
It’s a richly intricate universe woven together through the stitches of a post-apocalyptic, cyberpunk universe. Players will have RPG mechanics at their disposal, optional forms of combat or stealth to employ, and an open world to explore from top to bottom.
They also mention that the AI is reactive to what you do, so you’ll have to think before you act and attempt to plan one step ahead.
