SOEDESCO, the new owners of the Adam’s Venture IP, announced their next-gen explorer, Adam’s Venture: Origin, will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. They also released the good news with some gorgeous screenshots.
Announced in summer 2015, Adam’s Venture: Origins is a re-imagining of the franchise first released in Europe in 2009. Set during the Jazz Age – or the Roaring 20s – players will explore ancient ruins with their sidekick, Evelyn, to recover artifacts and outsmart the sinister Clairvaux company along the way. Outsmart them from what? Presumably from stealing the artifacts, but that’s only one’s guess.
The game not only focuses on puzzle solving, but the entire narrative has been redesigned to create an engaging adventure. Featuring new visuals, new gameplay, and new animations, Adam’s Venture: Origins will be a compelling game, complete with historical overtones and new exploratory tools like the grappling hook; it is the fulfillment of the original vision of Vertigo Games.
SOEDESCO acquired the rights to the Adam’s Venture franchise from Vertigo Games in April of 2015. According to executive manager Hans van Brake, it was “probably the biggest acquisition of a Dutch videogame IP.” Release is planned for early 2016, with more information to arrive in February. Keep up with further developments on their website and, in case you missed it. the teaser trailer is at the bottom of this post.
