XIII - Lost Identity

Truth of the matter is that if I woke up washed-up on the beach with no memory of who I was and how I got there, and if the only clue I had about my identity was the number XIII tattooed onto my neck, I’d figure that’s not enough to go on just remain happy in the sand and surf and my ignorance. But that wouldn’t make for a very interesting game, would it?

Éditions Dargaud and Anuman Interactive is thankfully a bit more motivated, as they have released XIII – Lost Identity, the latest adaptation of the adventures of XIII on PC, Mac, Macstore, iPhone, iPod and iPad to celebrate the release of volume 20 of Jean Van Hamme’s famous comic book series.

XIII - Lost Identity

With this new beginning, Anuman Interactive goes right back to the start of XIII’s adventures and sets the stage for an “interactive adventure” in which an eye for detail, logic and intuition are the keys to solving the mystery surrounding his identity. Based on the events that unfold in the saga’s first eight episodes, XIII – Lost Identity pitches gamers and XIII together in scenes that combine 3D and comic book.

And just as in the book itself, the action begins with the player washed up on the beach, injured and unconscious. Given shelter by strangers, he discovers that he has lost his memory. With hitmen out to kill him, the player embarks on a quest for survival and the truth about a conspiracy involving the assassination of the President. In making their way their way through the story, players have to negotiate a series of situations in which they are exposed to varying degrees of danger. As well as finding objects hidden in the backgrounds, they must piece together evidence, defuse bombs and solve puzzles.

Players will use inventory objects to solve the puzzles, and will come across characters familiar to fans of the series, including Major Jones, General Carrington, Colonel Amos and La Mangouste.

XIII is available now for iPad ($2.99) and iPhone, and will soon be available for Mac and PC.
