out the overview here:
No one is forced to join a cult. It welcomes you. It
understands you. It envelops you until the words become more than truth—they
make you whole.
In the late 1970s, the charismatic Isaac and Rebecca
Walker lead the Collective Justice Mission. Labeled radicals and feeling
persecuted by the US government, they relocate their followers to the one place
they believe they can create a socialist utopia: the jungles of South America.
There they build Freedom Town. But relatives left behind in the US become
worried: what exactly is going on at this compound in the jungle?
You play as Vic, an ex-law enforcement officer who has
snuck into Freedom Town to check on their nephew, Alex. Whether you choose
stealth or violence, you must infiltrate the commune, find out what’s going on
within, and locate your nephew, before it’s too late.
What ending will you get? Will you get Alex out,
whether he wants to go with you or not? Will you confront the cult leaders?
Will you join the cult?
Unlock every ending for each scenario by trying
different play styles or making different choices.
Multiple ways to play: Avoid detection
completely, taking out guards and civilians non-lethally, or kill anyone who
gets in your way.
Interview characters from Freedom Town and
search for clues. Documents and letters scattered around camp will hint at the
true nature of the commune.
Fully voiced game, starring Ellen McLain (best
known as GLaDOS in Portal) and John Patrick Lowrie (the Sniper from Team
Fortress 2) as the cult leaders, Rebecca and Isaac Walker.
How dangerous are the Walkers? How far will you go to uncover the truth and save Alex? Could it all have turned out differently?
