Independent solo game developer Wreck Tangle Games has released the Complete Edition of their horror adventure series Quintus and the Absent Truth on Steam. In the completed project, the story about a man and his mouse unfolds along a story-rich adventure and unique art style.
Told from a first-person point of view, the single player experience takes players through an epic horrify tale. The main protagonist is Alan Shaw who is searching for his missing daughter. In addition Shaw will attempt to discover the absent truth of the situation.
Much of the gameplay consists of working through puzzles and figuring out how the little rodent friend, Quintus, can help. By fitting in small spaces, Quintus can help reach items, areas, and button that Alan Shaw’s hands cannot reach. This journey is a lonely one and lucky for Shaw he does have his adorable companion to keep him company.
A unique and original stylized look is featured in the game. Throughout the game the minimalist art style allows for Quintus to stand out. The game also features a sensational soundtrack that helps to reinforce the story and bring it to life.
Once a player completes the main game they can take a step into The Experience. This area is a museum filled with various game models and details about how the game was developed. Originally the game was released over four chapters and now the game is available in a complete edition with improved visuals and mechanisms.
Quintus and the Absent Truth: Complete Edition is available on Windows PC through Steam for a $9.99. The original first chapter demo is available free to play on Game Jolt and Itch.io. For more information about Quintus and the Absent Truth visit the game’s webpage on the developer’s website here.
