Vivid Foundry, the developer behind the captivating cyberpunk visual novel Solace State, has announced its upcoming release for Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
Offering a unique blend of immersive storytelling and player choices, Solace State invites players to embark on a thrilling adventure set in a dystopian future.
A Tale of Friendship, Civic Duty, and Revolution
In Solace State, players assume the role of Chloe, a talented hacker in search of her missing friend, Rebecka. As the city of Abraxa becomes entangled in a biotech crackdown and escalating political unrest, Chloe finds herself at the center of a conspiracy.
Balancing her relationships and friendships, she must navigate the turmoil, protect her communities, and find solace in her own journey of healing.
Explore Authentic Connections and Hope
Solace State explores the power of friendship forged amidst adversity. Through tragedy and the pursuit of change, players will meet a vibrant, diverse cast of characters. Join forces with this colorful and fashionable group as you navigate complex societal issues and unravel political intrigue together.
As tensions rise, players will have the opportunity to foster romance or choose to maintain a close friendship. Will you find yourself drawn to the wholesome local boy Torrent, the experienced activist Sueli, or rekindle an old flame with Alden? The choices you make will shape the path of Chloe’s personal and romantic relationships.
Uncover Corruption and Influence Change
Solace State introduces the concept of “social hacking” as a means to dissect power dynamics and challenge the violent divisions that plague the world.
Your choices will determine how deeply you delve into personal relationships, build rapport with diverse communities, and exert moral influence over arbitrary militarization. The consequences of your actions will directly impact human rights within the game’s immersive world.
As Chloe’s hacking abilities grant her access to encrypted data and the thoughts of others, she grapples with the responsibility of sharing her truth ethically. In a world where futures are increasingly limited, will Chloe’s actions spark violent backlash or blossom into hope?
