Bithell Games is incredibly proud to announce the launch of TRON: Identity, a new visual novel adventure game set within the TRON universe for Nintendo Switch and PC.
Developed in collaboration with Disney, this puzzle-filled noir-inspired, narrative experience with beautiful, hand-crafted character art design is now available worldwide on the Nintendo eShop and Steam.
“TRON is an iconic story for so many. Its striking aesthetic, the fantastical world and, of course, its heroic game designer protagonist, were formative for me. I am immensely grateful for this opportunity to stand on the shoulders of generations of artists, and work with my amazing team to create new stories on an exciting new Grid,” said Creative Director Mike Bithell. “With Disney, we’ve created a space where players can tell this story alongside us via meaningful choices and interesting puzzles.”
TRON: Identity is a visual adventure narrative game that takes place in a brand-new Grid within the existing TRON universe. This Grid is shrouded in uncertainty, long-forgotten by its creator, Kevin Flynn, and left alone to develop and self-govern in the absence of User Intervention. A new extension of the TRON universe, TRON: Identity features extensive world-building that adds to the existing lore. This includes a number of brand-new characters, each uniquely designed with their own distinctive personality and aesthetics.
Players act as Query, a detective program called to the halls of power – a central building named the Repository – to investigate a major crime that begins in a high-security vault. It is up to the player to uncover the truth and, in doing so, reveal a much bigger threat facing their world. Question suspects, unlock secrets, and even defrag corrupted Identity Discs with increasingly challenging puzzles as the story progresses.
Choices matter in this game, offering hours of replayability with a variety of paths and outcomes. Players must choose their allies carefully, deciding who to trust, who to spurn – and how to deal with those who stand in their way.
“With the release of TRON: Identity as the first title in our collaboration with Bithell Games for a new TRON storyline, we’re thrilled to invite fans into this new expanded world filled with deep exploration and an engrossing story,” said Luigi Priore, VP, Disney, Pixar and 20th Century Games. “Driven by player choice, and filled with challenging puzzles, TRON: Identity is a distinct expression of the universe and an exciting addition to our growing roster of original, immersive games.”
TRON: Identity is now available on Steam and in the Nintendo eShop for $14.99.
