Publisher Untold Tales and developer Wondernaut Studio has announced 2D action adventure game Aspire: Ina’s Tale for Xbox One, Switch, and PC (Steam). It will launch in December. A demo will be available for PC via Steam on October 1.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Ina was trapped, placed in perpetual slumber inside the Tower—where she dreamed. Suddenly and unknowingly, she is woken. Ina must now explore the Tower’s inner chambers in search of a way out and a reason for her imprisonment.
Along the way, she’ll traverse marvelous scenery, meet enigmatic characters, solve intuitive puzzles, and conquer platforming sequences as she comes closer to her goal—but farther from innocence.
For this isn’t a story about how Ina was saved. This is the story about how she discovered she could be so much more.
- Explore a Living Tower – Get lost in a mystical side-scrolling adventure through beautiful sprawling levels, each with their own distinct feel. Every region presents its own peculiarities to unravel.
- Engaging Story – Ina’s dreams shape reality while the Tower feeds. Hopes and imagination satiate its hunger. How are the two connected?
- Meet the Tower Dwellers – Learn about the other denizens of the Tower as you search for the truth. Uncover their pasts, their memories, and set them free.
- Control Spirits – Ina was trapped for a reason, and her powers resonate with the spirits that inhabit the Tower. Use them to manipulate objects, solve puzzles, reveal hidden passages, and navigate the environment to find your way out.
