Flashback the story:
After fleeing from a space ship, but stripped of all memory, the young scientist Conrad B. Hart awakens on Titan, a colonised moon of the planet Saturn. His enemies and kidnapers are snapping at his heels, and he has to find a way back to Earth while warding off the dangers that beset him and unravelling a fiendish extra-terrestrial plot that threatens the planet…
Flashback will be available from June 7th, 2018 on the Nintendo E-shop and in retail with the 25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition. The game is entirely subtitled in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and is rated PEGI 12.
Over the last few years, Microïds has built up a solid catalogue of games for PC and next-generation consoles. Its work with well-known studios and authors (Pendulo Studios, Eden Games, Paul Cuisset, Benoit Sokal…) and its adaptations of famous licences (Syberia, Garfield, Agatha Christie, Blacksad…) have enabled it to reach a wide audience. Always at the cutting edge, Microïds released Moto Racer 4, its first PlayStation VR-compatible title, and today is plunging into new territory by developing several titles for the Nintendo Switch (Gear.Club Unlimited, Super Chariot…).
