Waiting patiently to be rescued from the Bradwell Conspiracy5th Dec 2018
It’s been a while since I discovered this Autumn’s curio, and my personal favourite upcoming game for 2019 (outside of Kingdom Hearts 3….) And while the clock is ticking down to the new year I thought it was about time to remind people of this overlooked gem of a game coming to steam.
The year is 2026. It’s Summer Solstice, and Bradwell Electronics is celebrating the launch of its ‘Clean Water Initiative’ – a technical breakthrough guaranteed to change the world – at its prestigious Stonehenge Museum. But as the event unfolds, it becomes clear: there’s something seriously amiss…
A searing bright light engulfs the room.
You wake up, disoriented – your throat ragged and raw. Rising from the rubble, it’s not long before you come across another survivor: Amber – trapped on the other side of a locked doorway.
Your only means of communication is via a pair of Bradwell AR Smart Glasses. By working in tandem, sending Amber photographs of your surroundings, together, the two of you try to discover a means of escape. But as you find yourself delving deeper and deeper into the bowels of the company’s secret underground complex, a sickening truth begins to dawn.
What triggered that explosion?
Has the mystery of Stonehenge finally been solved?
Is Bradwell actually the kind and compassionate company it appears?
Will you overcome the odds and uncover… The Bradwell Conspiracy?
