First gameplay trailer for dystopian adventure Rain of Reflections

Stockholm, November 6, 2018 – Swedish indie studio Lionbite Games is proud to finally present the first look at the gameplay in its upcoming dystopian adventure Rain of Reflections, with a trailer consisting entirely of in-game, real time footage.

The introductory Rain of Reflections chapter – “Set Free” – centers around Wilona, a scientist working towards a solution to our future world’s sudden infertility. As she starts doubting the morality of the experiments, she decides to free the live subject the lastborn child from captivity. This will prove difficult, as powerful forces try to stop her.

Setting key events in motion, the first release introduces the player to the game world and its mechanics:

  • Actively choose every single line spoken by the protagonist, to convince, defuse or outsmart a variety of strong-willed, multifaceted characters in fully voice acted dialogues.
  • Explore richly varied environments ranging from the sophisticated upper class Stem, to the flooded slums of the Trench, the twisted Temple, the heavily guarded Waste Plant and the coldly clinical Labs.
  • Engage in a turn-based strategy system with a range of tactical options where you seamlessly can choose to move stealthily, speak or open fire with precise, calculated shots causing environmental destruction and affecting the enemy’s motivation.
  • Breach computer systems, crack locks and eavesdrop on radio frequencies through a variety of hacking puzzles.
  • Choose how you play – point and click your character to where you want them to go using a mouse, or gain direct control of their movement with a gamepad.
  • Contemplate every choice in a system that halts to await your every input, but make sure you tread lightly – once a choice is made, its consequences will be definitive and may affect characters living or dying and even the very outcome of the story…

Beyond the first release, Chapter 2 “Open Eye” will focus on deadbeat private investigator Dwennon West in a cyberpunk-esque city district called The Cluster, and Chapter 3 “Undercurrent” will give an insight into the Infrared resistance movement defending their underground hideout The Root, where the player assumes the perspective of front figure Imra.

Rain of Reflections is being created by indie studio Lionbite Games a small, ambitious team based in Stockholm, Sweden and first chapter “Set Free” is planned for a release on PC in the coming months.

Wilona, part of the societal upper class sheltered in the Stem, has faithfully been following in her father’s footsteps as a scientist, which has gotten her involved in experiments on human children.

Dwennon is a private investigator drifting in the shadows of his own past, retreated to one the city’s more rugged urban areas, called the Cluster.

Imra is a prominent part of the Infrareds, a resistance group struggling against the oppression, holed up in a bunker referred to as the Root.

Indie studio Lionbite announces RPG Rain of Reflections

Stockholm, Sweden – Swedish indie studio Lionbite Games unveils debut title, cyberpunk noir role-playing game Rain of Reflections.

Rain of Reflections tells its noiresque story through three protagonists, two of which are female. The player will get to experience life in the futuristic, dystopian city through all three perspectives, ranging through society’s layers and social classes, interweaving the highly choice-driven journey.

Ambience and mood is an important part of the experience and the player is encouraged to explore the detailed environments in which the adventure is set, learning about the world and its characters (no scattered audio-logs or trails of notes – guaranteed!).

Rain of Reflections finds strengths in limitations. Lionbite Games wants to break RPG conventions by avoiding typical genre mechanics to focus on the very essence. The game will constantly move forward, without fillers, repetitive battles or monotonous grinding.

The battle system is deeply connected to the story and centered around a unique morale mechanic, allowing the player to use environments, ruse tactics, threats and even smart dialogue choices to handle confrontations without resorting to mindlessly blowing enemies to pieces.

Every choice has a consequence. The player is forced to live with them. In the words of the game’s leading characters: “This is my story. This is your story. This is our story. To the very end.”

Rain of Reflections is being developed in the Unity game engine for PC, with additional platforms considered for a later release.
