When it comes to Prologue Games’ Knee Deep, Shakespeare’s quote “All the world’s a stage…” comes to mind. Players are transported to the town of Cypress Knee, Florida. A washed-up actor hangs himself while on location, and the cast is thrown into the spotlight of the investigation in this noir adventure set in three acts.
The game behaves like a play, and the player’s screen becomes a stage. Characters are shifted among scenes. Players will watch as set pieces are moved into place while music rises and falls from the orchestra pit. The story follows three different characters, a blogger, a reporter, and a private investigator. Players also engage in dynamic storytelling that depends on the choices and consequences of the player’s actions. Conversations evolve based on the player’s choice, so they’ll have to be mindful of critical decisions as they could lead to a breakthrough in the case or end up getting someone hurt.
Knee Deep’s first two acts are available on Steam for Windows PC, Mac, and Linux. The third and final act entitled Boomtown is set to release on March 8.
