Unforeseen Incidents Matches Point-and-Click Gameplay With ’90s-Inspired Animation

Unforeseen Incidents

Unforeseen Incidents, the debut game from German developer Backwoods Entertainment, is a classically designed investigative adventure through a city on the brink of an epidemic, releasing for PC on May 24, 2018.

Curiously, for a game that deals with the possibility of contagion at every corner, the art style is cartoony with shades of inspiration from late ’90s animations. The disease-ridden plot, too, is diluted with a strong mood of modern noir and small-town intrigue, ripped straight from Fargo or Gravity Falls.

Story-wise, players assume the role of Harper Pendrell, who meets a dying woman in the street, leading to a series of events where he uncovers a menacing conspiracy.

For its gameplay, Unforeseen Incidents has taken inspiration from classic point-and-click adventures, but the title appears to offer a more modern, streamlined take on the genre.

The debut trailer contains some more details, along with a look of the project’s flashy art style and sharp writing:

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
