Here is an overview of the game:

On the eve of his first performance, Francis Vendetti battles with the legacy of a dead folk legend and the cosmic wanderings of his own imagination. Francis, a teenage guitar prodigy, sets out on a psychedelic, multidimensional journey to inspire his stage persona.

Key Features:

  • Close Encounters of the Third Kind-style musical jams. Using his “LoudJacket,” Francis Vendetti summons holographic ampliers and cannonades of impossible laser arrays.
  • Create your own stage persona from the sci- beginnings of your backstory to the sequins in your facepaint.
  • Converse with all manner of being: disenchanted publicans, nostalgic villagers, lumbering alien wildlife, and reality defying-behemoths.
  • Walk, run, double jump, air walk, light cannon, trip, and climb across the multiverse. Traverse landscapes made of sound, triggered by your movements, as if the world itself were an instrument.

I've wanted this game badly since I first saw it last year. It looks, and just as importantly sounds, really unique, soulful, and fascinating! So happy it's finally just around the corner now. :-)
