Use déjà vu to bridge realities in hard sci-fi psychological thriller The Gap


An intriguing-sounding psychological thriller referred to as The Gap was introduced throughout the Future Games Show this night.

It’s described as a tough sci-fi first-person narrative recreation set in 2045, not that the sci-fi parts are notably obvious from the debut trailer. This exhibits you, a neuroscientist referred to as Joshua Hayes, waking up on the ground of presumably your individual condominium, with a voice – and written messages on the partitions – telling you to not belief anybody. But you may’t keep in mind what’s going on.

Hayes suffers from a uncommon genetic dysfunction that impacts his reminiscence, so the main focus within the recreation is making an attempt to get better these recollections by re-experiencing them. The catalyst for that is déjà vu, triggered by objects that act like a bridge to a parallel actuality to expertise recollections once more. But there’s tragedy hiding in your previous, too.


The debut trailer. Intriguing, is not it?

The Gap is the debut recreation from two-person Slovenian studio Label This, and shall be printed by small Polish group Crunching Koalas, which has been round for some time, principally porting and doing work-for-hire jobs on video games like Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, Darkwood and This War of Mine.

The Gap is coming to PC, PS5 and Xbox Series S/X, and Crunching Koalas tells me it is aiming for early subsequent yr.

The living area of a stylish apartment, with the sun busting through the blinds. There's writing on those blinds, telling the player not to trust people.

A bedroom almost completely in the dark with a board on the wall and many notes and tokens stuck to it. Someone is mapping something big.

A photo of a husband and wife on their wedding day.

A stylish apartment with the night sky outside casting a long, atmospheric shadow across it.
