“In a new Grid, forgotten by its creator and left alone to evolve without User intervention, an unprecedented crime has been committed,” the game’s synopsis reads. “The Repository stands at the center of this society. In the aftermath of a break-in, the future of this Grid hangs in the balance.
“Finding yourself in a world built on unstable foundations and filled with whispered knowledge, it’s up to you to question suspects and investigate your surroundings to piece together the truth.”
According to Bithell Games, the decisions players make will actively influence the story, “with a multitude of possible outcomes, good and bad – all depending on your carefully chosen words.”
It adds: “You’ll interact with a number of intriguing characters, and decide whether to ally with them, spurn them, or even derezz them. However you choose to deal with them, you’ll need to recover their lost memories in your search for answers, puzzling your way through defragging Identity Discs. The world of TRON is growing, and your adventure is the seed.”
