Flashback creator reveals Subject 13

It's all coming back to me now.

Remember Flashback, the cult classic adventure game that sort of was a follow-up to Another World? Its creator, Paul Cuisset, has just announced his next game: the mysterious Subject 13.

Cuisset is working with indie publisher Microïds on the game, which is billed as Cuisset returning to his adventure game roots.

So, what's Subject 13 all about? You play Franklin Fargo, a physics professor who leads a solitary and bitter existence following the death of his fiancée, Sophie, during a robbery that should have targeted him.

The game begins as Franklin wakes up in an abandoned underground science facility with no external contact other than a mysterious voice that calls him Subject 13. You have to interact with the 3D environment, collecting, using and manipulating objects to escape.

We don't have a release date or platforms yet, but we do have the image, below.


Fun trivia: according to the Guinness Book of World Records, Flashback is the best-selling French game of all time. Take that David Cage.
