Gamera Game announced that the Misty Mountain Studio-developed puzzle adventure game The Rewinder is coming to PC-via Steam on September 10, 2021.
The Rewinder has players assume the role of Qi Yun as he is on his quest as “The Last Rewinder.” Qi can communicate with spirits and explore other people’s memories in an attempt to change the past and present. Sent on a mission by the gods of the underworld, Qi travels to a small village to investigate why a spirit could reincarnate. This once-thriving village has been deserted and filled with resentful spirits, leaving one woman alone in the teahouse. Who’s she waiting for? Where did all the other villagers go? What really happened seven years ago?
During gameplay, players will interact with the environment to solve 2D puzzles and progress the narrative. The story is inspired by traditional Chinese folklore, which adds to the overall tone of the adventure. You will get to meet mythological figures such as the Spirit Wardens, the Ox-head and Horse-face Guardians of the Beyond, and the Tudi Gong (Keeper of the Land). At the request of the Spirit Wardens, you will take Qi Yun to a small village, which he’ll find almost completely deserted.
