Square Enix Collective has announced the line-up of games it will be featuring at its first full event at EGX Rezzed.
Collective will be bringing five games to the show, including two announced titles and three previously unannounced titles, giving gamers the chance to see the start of a growing portfolio of new industry talent being supported by the initiative.
The games line-up will be as follows:
Goetia / Sushee (France): announced in October 2015, releasing in Q2 2016
Abigail’s parents and sister are missing, and the air is filled with anxiety and anger. Who is living here now? What happened to everyone? Why has Abigail come back from the dead? And what is this Goetia that seems to be the key to understanding all this nonsense?
Goetia is a deep, point-and-click adventure for PC set in the seemingly abandoned Blackwood Manor and surrounding area in the early 1940s – can you unpick the mystery and find the answers?
The Turing Test / Bulkhead Interactive (UK): announced in March 2016, releasing in August 2016
You play the role of Ava Turing, an engineer for the International Space Agency (ISA), as she attempts to uncover the truth behind the research base on Jupiter’s moon, Europa, in this first-person puzzle game built with Unreal 4.
Solve puzzles using your Energy Manipulation Tool (EMT) to transfer power out of one object and into another; power up and take control of artificially intelligent machines, manipulate giant structures and solve complex tasks – all woven into a multi-layered story based on the human struggle for control.
The Turing Test will be published for PC by Collective; and for Xbox One by Microsoft.
Tokyo Dark / Cherrymochi (Japan): previously unannounced, releasing in Q4, 2016
Detective Itō’s partner is missing, but what starts as a straightforward case soon spirals into a twisted nightmare that causes Itō to confront her past and question her own sanity.
Tokyo Dark is a side-scrolling point-and-click mystery adventure game for PC and Mac. As Detective Itō you’ll explore Tokyo – following leads, collecting clues, and making difficult decisions with far-reaching consequences.
Tokyo Dark features a huge number of dialogue choices and interactions that affect character attributes and change the outcome of the story.
Black The Fall / Sand Sailor Studio (Romania): previously unannounced, releasing in Q3 2016

Solve puzzles to progress, all the while attempting to avoid suspicion and alerting the intent… and unfriendly… gaze of the State.
