Quixotic Interactive has shared some tantalising details about its incredibly ambitious time-travel survival game, The Vision.
The developer dropped almost ten minutes of footage from the game, mixing together pre-rendered cutscenes and gameplay. Those scenes showed the player character exploring (and mostly shooting) their way through environments as disparate as a rural outpost in the 1950s, New York City in 2020, and a space station in the distant future.
However, more interesting than the visuals is the voice-over, which promises a lot more than the trailer shows.
At a base level, the narration discusses the inclusion of traditional survival elements, such as eating, drinking, sleeping, and crafting. The building is novel, though, as it is not restricted to shelter, but also extends to theme parks and grocery stores.
More intriguing still is the mention of emergent elements: “altering anything will change the world around the player in a slew of ways.” The voice-over later mentions the possibility of transferring technology—including phones and cars—between time periods, but warns that doing so “may compromise your mission.”
The trailer even teases the possibility of travelling back to Mesozoic Era, when dinosaurs walked the Earth.
According to the developer, The Vision has been in development for more than four years, with the aim being to “create a free and ever changing open world video game.”
While no release window target or platforms are yet confirmed, the trailer ends by teasing that a prototype build will be available soon.
