Flashback Creator and Microids Reveal Subject 13
Microids and game designer Paul Cuisset today revealed Cuisset’s new adventure game project, Subject 13. The title marks the return of the Flashback creator to the adventure genre where he first made his mark with games such as Future Wars, The Stealth Affair, and Cruise for a Corpse.
In Subject 13, players will take on the role of Franklin Fargo, a reclusive physics professor. Fargo leads a solitary and bitter existence following the death of his fiancée, Sophie, during a robbery that should have targeted him. One morning, he wakes up in an abandoned underground scientific facility with no external contact other than a mysterious voice. The voice calls him “Subject 13.” As Franklin Fargo, players will interact with the 3D environment around them by collecting, using, and manipulating objects to overcome a multitude of devious barriers to the professor’s escape. Fargo’s goal is to not only set himself free but discover the true reasons for his imprisonment — can he escape from the prison of his past?
