Dunedin's RocketWerkz is teasing a project called Living Dark, a neo-noir adventure driven by a procedural narrative.
The game takes place in Vox, a near-future city "straining under tensions it can barely control", and looks to explore themes of inequality, violence, manipulation, and control.
"Fight for friends, factions or your own future, but survive at all costs in a society where justice is only for the powerful," the official site reads.
Procedural mission systems, characters and dialogue mean the events around you are generated as a consequence of your actions, relationships and choices.

Valve's beloved Portal series is returning, via Headup Games' rather self-explanatory physics-based building game Bridge Constructor.

God of War might be releasing on March 22 next year.
