It’s time for A New Beginning on the iPad

Published On December 9, 2015 | By Kirk Hiner | iPhone/iPad

Having brought us games such as the Deponia series, The Night of the Rabbit and The Whispered World, Hamburg-based Daedalic Entertainment has become a go-to source for Mac and iOS adventurers. Today, they expanded their adventure game catalog with the iPad release of A New Beginning, complete with a 20% introductory discount. The environmentally-themed game centers around a former bio-engineer who receives a visitor from the future and is thrown into an incredible adventure.

A New Beginning

That’s certainly a better start than waking up in a hospital with no memory of who you are or receiving a letter from your scientist uncle who’s been missing for umpteen years. Rather…

Forced out of bio-engineering, Bent Svensson bitterly returned to private life. But one day, young Faye knocks on his door and claims that he is about to play an important role in the history of mankind. She further claims to be sent from the future to prevent a global environmental disaster. Despite reasonable doubts, Bent rushes into the thrilling adventure. They need to recover Svensson’s research and prevent its abuse. Nothing less than the fate of humanity is at stake.

As you’d want from an adventure game, A New Beginning features:

  • More than 100 breath-taking, detailed backgrounds
  • More than 20 hours of playing time
  • A unique graphic novel look with more than one hour of animated comic cut scenes

In other words, plan on spending some time with this one. And considering the thematic focus on pollution and nature protection, it should be time well spent.

A New Beginning is currently available at its $7.99 sale price in the iTunes App Store. The Mac version is available for $9.99 on Steam. For more information, visit www.daedalic.de.
