Greg Rucka-Penned Adventure Game AR-K: The Great Escape Now Available
AR-K: The Great Esacpe, the third chapter of AR-K launched today on Steam. The witty 3D point-and-click adventure, written by critically acclaimed comic book writer Greg Rucka, follows the adventures of Alicia, a former cop and current journalism student, as she investigates the origin of the strange Golden Sphere that has turned her life upside down.
While Episode 3 may be enjoyed on its own without having experienced the previous chapters, players can get caught up on Alicia’s story in the first two installments on PC, iOS or Android.
AR-K is a classical point and click adventure with an updated twist. Alicia Van Volish is a former cop and current journalism student who awakens after a one-night stand with a terrible hangover and a lot of questions: How much did she drink? Did she really take that guy home with her? What was his name? And what, exactly, is the Golden Sphere, the mysterious object that seems the source of all Alicia’s woes?
Development of AR-K was made possible via a highly successfully crowdfunding effort on Kickstarter, which raised over $100,000 for the project.
Alicia is brought to life through the voice talents of Ash Sroka, widely known for her role as Tali Zorah in the Mass Effect Trilogy. Episode 3 and the upcoming final installment of AR-K are written by Greg Rucka, known for his work on such comics as Action Comics, Batwoman, Detective Comics, Wolverine and the miniseries Superman: World of New Krypton. Greg’s ability to write smart female characters makes him the perfect candidate to convey Alicia’s caustic wit and edginess.
