Jessika is an upcoming full motion video (FMV) mystery adventure, that has you pry into the digital past of Jessika as part of a group that specializes in processing digital footprints of deceased people.
Quite a unique take on a FMV game, with a sensitive subject too. Jessika committed suicide and it's up to you to find out why, at the request of their relatives. The developer says 'What at first seems to be a job like any other quickly develops into a dark drama with twists and turns.'.
It appears the actual FMV was not done in English, with that being dubbed on top which is a little odd at first glance. Assemble Entertainment, who are publishing it, mentioned that you can adjust it so the FMV is in the native language with subtitles if you prefer.
All you need is your laptop and some basic background info about the “victim” – in this case it’s all about Jessika. Access her database and browse her files by typing different search terms. These will give you access to video clips, audio files, notes, and news articles. Share those with the client and your colleagues to dig even deeper. Use your savvy and combine the facts to unfold the true story of Jessika.
We spoke to the developer, Tritrie Games, who mentioned clearly to us that a Linux version will be available and supported at the release. There's no exact date currently other than sometime this 'Summer' but once a date is set we will let you know.
You can follow Jessika on Steam.
