Description
Release date: Q4 2015
STORY
After living for generations as persecuted refugees, the Letarri people set their sights on a far-off planet as a promising new home. But when the interstellar mission to colonize the new world goes terribly awry, the fate of their people falls into the hands of a lone adventurer. Now it's up to you to unravel the mystery of what happened. Can you save them and their mission, or is it already too late?

Prominence is a first-person, point-and-click adventure game for the PC filled with puzzle-solving goodness, compelling character arcs, and an engaging story of hope and humanity in the best traditions of good science-fiction.


FEATURES
- Solve a dynamic mix of challenging, yet logical, puzzles that tie directly into the story.
- Discover clues and reconstruct the events of the mission through emails, audio recordings, environmental clues, and a damaged central computer in need of repairs.
- Hack computer subsystems via a text-based interface.
- Acquire and use additional skills and abilities as you progress through the adventure.
- Become immersed in the world through fully rendered HD environments with animated movement and effects.
- Access holographic data archives to explore a wealth of backstory, environmental details, mission information, crewmember records, and more.
- Experience an original soundtrack with over 40 minutes of music.


IMPRESSIONS FROM THE GAMING PRESS
German gaming site Adventure Corner previewed Prominence and wrote, "Fans of Arthur C. Clarke's '2001: A Space Odyssey' should keep this adventure in mind." We wholeheartedly agree!

Other notable quotes:
"...this latest space mystery will be one that is definitely worth unravelling."
- AdventureGamers.com

"technically solid" and "densely atmospheric"
- Adventure-Treff.de

"...a very promising game."
- Gameboomers.com

"Prominence is an excellent example of what a small but dedicated developer can produce."
- GamingLives.com

"..evolves methodically and soon draws you deep into the mystery behind the ill-fated mission."
- AdventureClassicGaming.com

"Sur une musique électro aérienne, des protubérances se forment à la surface d'une étoile, et explosent, feux d'artifice de l'hyperespace, dangereusement séduisants. Oui, ça me rend lyrique."
- Canard PC (Issue #283)

@robert.blane Direct purchase and Steam version will release at the same time. Install size will be between 4 and 5GB.

Who knows this may be even released before the next series of Game of Thrones!
robert.blane Sep 10, 2015 @ 10:47pm 
And what are the chances of buying this direct rather than waiting for the Steam release?
robert.blane Sep 10, 2015 @ 10:46pm 
Glad to hear this, but would've liked a more specific time! This game has been in developement for almost the same length of time Greenlight has been running, I seriously hope it lives up to the expectations we have for it. Can you give an indication of pricing and how much room the game will take up on the hard drive?

@robert.blane Prominence is expected to launch before the end of this year. A specific release date has not been announced... yet.
