Echoes of the Fey: The Fox’s Trail, launching Sep 1, 2017 for Xbox One
Did Folren ir-Adech die during the war between Humans and Leshin? Or is there a darker truth behind his disappearance? Investigate the mystery through the story-driven adventure game, Echoes of the Fey: The Fox’s Trail, launching Sep 1, 2017 for Xbox One (out now on Steam/PS4).
The ongoing Echoes of the Fey series follows Sofya Rykov, a private investigator in a steampunk fantasy world who must hide a dangerous secret: the cataclysm that ended the long war also granted her unstable magic powers. Each episode is a complete story which will feature a new mystery, a new magic power, and optional romantic pursuits.
The Fox’s Trail begins as Sofya discovers how to turn into a cat. Like every spell that comes to her, this ability is unpredictable but useful for a detective who likes to cut corners. But The Fox’s Trail is about more than magic and a reckless heroine. It explores the dangers of demonizing groups of people based on their differences, and what happens when one person defies society by changing sides. This episode is a point-and-click adventure game inspired by Japanese visual novels, including dialog trees and player choices that affect the outcome of the story. Learn more about each character by completing their side quests, and perhaps find romance along the way.
