Freebird Games’ next is Impostor Factory, a tragicomedy time loop thriller that’s mysteriously related to To The Moon and Finding Paradise.
It’s been a quiet couple of years since Freebird Games released Finding Paradise, but now the adventure game developer has announced its next game, which happens to be set in the same universe as its most popular games. It’s called Impostor Factory, and it’s very mysterious.
Here’s what we know: it’s involve time loops, murder mysteries, is a tragicomedy, and it’s “categorically out of its mind”. Among the things we don’t know is whether the game is a sequel, prequel, interquel, or all of the above to To The Moon and Finding Paradise. While designer Kan Gao refers to To The Moon as Episode 1 and Finding Paradise as Episode 2, he refers to Impostor Factory as “Episode X” currently.
Have a look at the game’s trailer below:
And here’s the plot:
Dr. Rosalene and Dr. Watts have peculiar jobs: They give people another chance to live their lives, all the way from the very beginning.
But this isn’t their story. Probably.
Instead, it’s about Quincy. Let me tell you a story about him.
One day, Quincy was invited to a fancy parteh at a suspiciously secluded mansion. So he accepted and went; because even though the mansion was suspicious and secluded, it was also fancy and had a parteh.
In fact, it turned out to be so fancy that there was a time machine in its bathroom. Quincy could wash his hands and time-travel while he was at it. Talk about a time-saver!
But of course, then people start dying, because that’s what they do. And somewhere along the way, things get a little Lovecraftian and tentacles are involved.
Anyway, that’s around 1/3 of what the game is really about.
