Here is an overview of the game, via its store pages:
Delve into a hyper-cinematic adventure. You are a CLONE. You live at the world’s end. You worship the last surviving human: the ALLMOTHER. When a dangerous rumor shatters your faith, you phase through time and memory—to expose a 1000-year-old lie. Relive. Reclaim. RESIST.
Relive the memories of a god. Reclaim your legacy across time. Resist a thousand-year-old lie.
The Year is Unknown, and the Air is Unbreathable
All that remains are you and your sisters, living under the shadow of a mysterious disease, cloning one another into eternity. In the safety of the Garden, survival is simple. Stay inside. Serve your function. Obey the ALLMOTHER.
You Are a Clone
Your name and function: WATCHER. You relive the memories of the ALLMOTHER and uphold her glory. When your closest sister, FIXER, comes to you with a dangerous rumor…
You Phase Through Time
…and discover a devastating truth: someone has tampered with history.
Will You Save the Sisterhood or Burn it to the Ground?
1000xRESIST is a hyper-cinematic, narrative adventure. Shift through time. Experience the past, present, and future. Examine memory, identity, and inherited histories, whilst exploring dynamic environments, each with their own distinct style and feel.
The emotionally complex world of 1000xRESIST will push you to a series of difficult decisions, with multiple endings. Your actions will shape the fate of the next generation.
1000xRESIST is a game born of an eclectic set of inspirations, including the games of Yoko Taro (NieR: Automata), the anime of Satoshi Kon (Perfect Blue) and Naoko Yamada (A Silent Voice), and even the theatre of Robert Wilson (Einstein on the Beach)—it’s Kentucky Route Zero meets Neon Genesis Evangelion, featuring a full voiceover by a brilliant cast of Asian-Canadian actors.
