We’ve been pretty interested in Proze ever since the release of its free prologue last year. We were hoping to get our hands on the first full episode this month. Sadly, it looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer.
Proze Episode 1: Enlightenment is now arriving on April 11th. Developer SignSine recently confirmed as much over on Steam. “Everything looks promising and we’re almost at the finish line – but need a little more time to wrap things up,” the team wrote. “The first full chapter of PROZE story will be out on April 11.”
SignSine also promised that a new trailer was on the way. In the meantime, there’s this one that we missed before (ignore the February release date).
Proze is a first-person adventure game set both past and present. You explore a Cold War-era Soviet facility, hopping between the two time zones. In the 1970’s, you follow an engineer that uncovers the work going on at the facility. Then in the present day you explore the aftermath of those events. Puzzles and horror elements fill out the episodic story. We’re not sure how long each episode will last, nor how many installments are planned for the series.
We tried out the free prologue and, though brief, it provided a glimpse of a promising adventure. If the puzzles are kept in check and the horror hits the right notes, Proze could be a winner. Beta testing for the game is currently underway (you can apply for a key on Discord). The game will launch on the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
