Publisher Fellow Traveler and developer Sunset Visitor officially announced a new narrative adventure game called 1000xRESIST, set to launch sometime in 2023 on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam, the Epic Games Store, GOG, and the Humble Store. Described as a “hyper-cinematic narrative adventure game,” 1000xRESIST is the first major title from Sunset Visitor, a Vancouver-based indie studio majority composed of Asian-Canadian creators. To celebrate the announcement, the studio released the first official trailer for 1000xRESIST, which you can watch below.

The trailer looks incredibly slick, showing a unique perspective for the upcoming title. It is interesting to see how the game will play out in the end, given that the trailer spouts exposition like “relive the memories of a god” and other cryptic and vague sentiments. If anything, 1000xRESIST managed to draw attention; now, it only needs to deliver.

1000xRESIST puts you in the role of a CLONE, an entity living at the world’s end. Here, you worship the (apparently) last surviving human called the ALLMOTHER. However, a dangerous rumor spreads and one that can shatter your faith entirely. To verify its claims, you must phase through time and memory and expose this 1000-year-old lie.

In this world, all that remains are you and your sisters, living under the shadow of a mysterious disease. To survive, you clone each other into eternity. As the CLONE named WATCHER, your task to survive in the comfort of this Garden is simple: stay inside, serve your function, and obey the ALLMOTHER. However, when your closest sister, FIXER, comes to you with a rumor, you embark on a journey to discover the devastating truth: that someone has tampered with history.

Sunset Visitor describes 1000xRESIST as being inspired by the games of Yoko Taro (best known for NieR: Automata), the anime of Satoshi Kon (best known for Perfect Blue), and the works of Naoko Yamada (best known for A Silent Voice). The team also mentions the theater of Robert Wilson as an inspiration, and 1000xRESIST as a crossover between indie title Kentucky Route Zero and Neon Genesis Evangelion.
