Trylight Game Studio and The Game Publisher have released a unique innovative puzzle game where players control the thoughts of the characters in Fate of Kai. The colorfully illustrated single player point and click game is available now on both PC and mobile devices.
Controlling and manipulating characters thoughts are at the core of Fate of Kai. Every time a character thinks of something or has an idea, players can change the course of the narrative. In order to fix the present one must go to the past. Players can explore the various storylines and solve complex puzzles all in an effort to get Kai to the castle.
Puzzles in the game are designed to give players an experience to remember. There are no tutorials. A natural learning curve is in place that builds upon previous puzzles and helps players prepare for the next challenge.
The entirety of the game is presented in a colorfully illustrated book. There are over 160 pages with more than 700 panels of detailed illustrations presented in a hand-drawn comic book format. To accompany the immersive gameplay experience an original dynamic soundtrack, created by Wwise, is included with music that changes according to the events on the page.
