In Subaeria, you’ll have a chance to play the game as 4 different characters with their unique agendas, interweaving storylines and multiple endings. They all come from different backgrounds and are as diverse as people are in reality. We don’t want to present a single view of a perfect hero who is the incarnation of everything good, as has been done over, and over again. It’s more nuanced than that, there aren’t evil and good characters, just people with their own agendas and preoccupations, trying to survive in this strange world. These people aren’t fighters either, they can’t go in guns blazing and shoot down all their enemies. As a matter of fact, there are no guns in Subaeria. Players have to learn how to use their environment and their enemies to progress while playing in the shoes of this band of misfits.
Here is a quick presentation of these four characters, their backstories, though to learn more about their motivations, you might have to wait a bit for Subaeria to launch:
