Prominence is a bit of a rare breed, it’s a sci-fi point-and-click adventure which actually happens in space. Digital Media Workshop has released a seven minute preview trailer to reveal details of the game.
”In making this video, we wanted to show more of what Prominence has to offer, taking care to steer away from spoilers as much as possible since it’s a traditional adventure game,” said Kevin McGrath, lead programmer on the project. “We decided to go with a guided tour that demonstrates some of the game’s key features, such as the control scheme and UI, and the puzzle types that players can expect to encounter in Prominence.”
