Burning books is often considered not to be a good thing. There’s tons of knowledge in them, gathered up for the purpose of reading rather than burning. Yet a new action RPG being released seeks to turn that around, putting you in the role of a priestess burning books and killing authors. If you’re ready to help the god of ignorance, Bliss, then Quote is the game you’re looking for.
In Quote you play as Novella, a priestess of Bliss who has been tasked with cleansing the world of knowledge. Helping her on this journey is Tatters, a strange bird-like companion. To accomplish this, you’ll be partaking in an action RPG. The trailer shows off some of Novella’s skills, including teleporting, starting huge fires, and suplexing enemies into the ground. It also gives you a chance to see Quote‘s interesting art style, musical choices, and narrator.
Quote has been inspired by many books and art, despite the subject matter. The works of Kurt Vonnegut, Ray Bradbury, Umberto Eco, and Aldous Huxley were all mentioned as being inspirations to the game. Developers Vindit also mentioned the art of Hieronymus Bosch in being another inspiration to the game.
If you’re interested in Quote, then you can grab the First Draft version of the game on itch.io. Get it now to get 50% off of the price when it hits Steam’s Early Access in Q1 2017. Notably, you will get a Steam key once the Early Access version does release. You have to hurry, though, as Quote‘s First Draft will only be available to purchase until 7AM EST on December 16th.
