Since Blade Runner, cyberpunk and detective thriller have been entwined in numerous sci-fi works, even among mobile games with titles such as Gemini Rue. True Legacy adds a text adventure flair to the cyberpunk mystery, out now on iOS.

As investigator Thornhill, you begin True Legacy looking into a mysterious death, an incident that leads across the game’s dystopian city and through its future of AI, machines, and genetics. Scrolling prose, complete with highlighted notes that provide more context about the world, drive the story forward as you make choices; reminiscent of Device 6, text might offshoot to the sides and other directions, revealing new information and other scenes. 

You’ll need that context and information to solve True Legacy’s intermittent (but narrative-driven) puzzles, from cracking safes and rewiring wires to using data from the text to unlock passcodes. Your progression through the puzzles and story is complemented by subtly-animated illustration of scenes and locales from the game’s futuristic world: cityscapes, seedy apartments, dark alleys, and more.

True Legacy can be purchased for $2.99 on the App Store.
