Hundreds of years have passed since Earth lost the war against the Selenon, a terrifying alien race living on the dark side of the Moon. Now, the Bureau of Human Protection presides over the last vestiges of the human race. The Selenon have kept one city intact, but mercilessly enforce a single law – any advanced technology must be collected and destroyed.

Violet is an agent of SPECTRA, and one of the City’s few psychics – humans who were granted the powers of the Selenon. She and her partner, Blue, have been given a new assignment – find the culprit of a murder that could be linked to the New Moon Resistance, a group of freedom fighters who wish to stop the Selenon at any cost. It seems clear-cut, but things are never that easy as their investigation leads deep into a web of secrets that may reveal humanity’s ultimate fate. Violet must uncover these secrets before it is too late.

Developed by Fastermind Games, Selenon Rising Episode 1 quickly sets the stage and fills it with mystery, murder, lies, and suspects. As SPECTRA agent Violet, players will need to visit and interact with crime scenes, collect clues, and use their psychic powers to interrogate and read the emotions of their suspects. Players will also have to tread a careful path as the choices they make in-game can see them aligned as a strict “Law” abiding agent, a “Neutral” agent up for negotiations, or a lone wolf agent of “Chaos.” Ultimately, the choices made and the alignment assigned will have an outcome on how the story concludes. Has humanity’s fate already been sealed by the Selenon? Will Violet and Blue be able to stop the New Moon Resistance from sparking another war with the Selenon? The answers to these questions and more begin with Selenon Rising Episode 1.

Key Features:

  • An epic story – 4 episodes combine into a novel-length story featuring mystery, love, aliens, conspiracies, and Sci-Fi action all set in the distant retro-future.
  • Moral choices change the player’s alignment and guide the story towards a number of possible endings.
