Independent game developer, Creative Bytes Studios, has announced that their new sci-fi narrative adventure game, Return to Grace, will be released on Windows PC on May 30, 2023. The game is now available for wishlisting on Steam and the Epic Games Store.
In Return to Grace, players take on the role of archaeologist Adamari “Adie” Ito, who embarks on a dangerous mission to uncover the truth behind the ancient artificial intelligence known as “Grace.” Adie has made it her life’s work to find out what happened to Grace, which was once renowned as humanity’s greatest technological achievement but went dark 900 years ago.
The game takes place in a retro-futuristic structure on Ganymede and players must solve puzzles and uncover clues to unravel the mystery of Grace. The game features branching story paths and multiple endings, providing players with the opportunity for personal and literal discovery as they make decisions that affect the outcome of the story.
Adie is not alone on her journey, as she is accompanied by a cast of character AIs that provide support and humour. These companions are fully voiced, with talent from Karen Knox, Athena Karkanis, Alexandra Ordolis, and Dick Terhune lending their voices to the game.
Return to Grace promises to be a thrilling sci-fi sleuthing experience, as players explore and investigate the environment to uncover the connection between Grace and humanity. With its fully-voiced cast of character AIs, multiple endings, and 60s sci-fi-inspired narrative, Return to Grace is sure to be a hit among sci-fi fans.
According to Paul Caporicci, CEO of Creative Bytes Studios, “We’re incredibly passionate about telling impactful, character-led stories and doing the unexpected.” The team behind Return to Grace was previously nominated for The Game Awards for their work on The Vale: Shadow of the Crown, and they hope that players will embrace this new adventure with the same enthusiasm.
