Heaven's Vault - Catch All

The next game from Inkle Studios (the developer of 80 Day) is out, and it's an archaeology and translation game backed by really robust narrative technology.

I'm about five hours into Heaven's Vault at this point, and at this point I can definitely say that the way the narrative flows is quite different from what you might expect from an adventure game. There's a forward momentum to all of your choices. I don't know yet how much your choices might change things, but I'm pretty sure, based on what I've seen so far, that some of the encounters I've had could have turned out radically different.

Anyone else playing it?

Looks amazing. I remember hearing about the language bit before.

Man, I can't stand the character art though. That style never works for me and I don't know why.

I took to it right away but I can see how it could take getting used to for some people.

i've picked it up but i want to try to focus on one game at a time and i'm still working through Pathway, but it certainly looks right up my alley!

Just started it, and it’s very tasty. Inkle really knows their way around a story.
