We were thrilled to hear that HEROES was coming back to NBC and now we get not one but two video games for fans to continue the experience long after each weeks episodes.
HEROES REBORN: Enigma, the first of two HEROES REBORN games that immerse fans into the universe created by Tim Kring, will be available for mobile and tablet devices (iOS and Android) on Oct. 8, entertainment studio and game publisher Imperative Entertainment announced today.
Serving as a prequel for the HEROES REBORN event series, HEROES REBORN: Enigma is a first person action puzzle game that has players become Dahlia, an evolved human with incredible powers, seeking to escape the clutches of a secret government facility known as The Quarry. Dahlia has to solve a series of brain-teasing puzzles in complex environments. Featuring stunning visuals from Unreal Engine 4, the game is produced by multi-platform studio Imperative Entertainment and developed by Phosphor Games.
In the HEROES REBORN: Enigma game, written by several of the television series writers under Tim Kring’s direction and published by Imperative Entertainment, players will use Dahlia’s teleportation powers to manipulate the plane and traverse through the complex designs of The Quarry while also using her powers to shift time.
“When I created HEROES, I always envisioned it as an expansive universe with characters and stories that would extend far beyond the reaches of just a TV show,” said Tim Kring, creator of the HEROES universe and Imperative Entertainment partner. “HEROES REBORN: Enigma dives deeper into the world with a groundbreaking form of storytelling and gameplay unlike anything released before on mobile and tablet.”
While the game extends the storyline from the HEROES REBORN television series and unfolds an entirely new plot to enhance viewers’ experiences, the game is also designed as a self-contained experience for those who have not seen the series.
HEROES REBORN: Enigma will be available on iOS and Android for $5.99 on Oct. 8.
HEROES REBORN: Enigma is the first game to be released from the HEROES REBORN universe. An entirely different HEROES REBORN game for console and PC, HEROES REBORN: Gemini, which focuses on Dahlia’s sister, Cassandra, will be available at a later date from Imperative Entertainment and Phosphor Games.
