A modern 3D, point and click adventure game. Perils of Man reboots the classic graphic adventure game with a story that will leave you pondering its profound implications.

Imagine getting a glimpse into the secret clockwork of the universe. Imagine a machine that can crack the code of destiny and give you the power to tinker with fate. Imagine discovering that for generations your family has concealed this power from the outside world. Ana Eberling may only be a teenager, but she is about to confront the biggest questions of life as she tries to solve the mystery of her father, a rogue scientist who vanished when she was just a little girl. 

With striking 3D animations, challenging puzzles, and a tip of the hat to steampunk, this epic adventure spans 150 years, darting from a tramp freighter adrift in the South China seas to impending disaster at the Chicago World’s Fair, bringing a host of unforgettable characters, perilous exploits, and existential riddles along for the ride.

Perils of Man: Episode 1 includes the first three chapters of the game. Owners will receive a free upgrade to all 6 chapters of the full game upon the official launch of Episode 2, aimed for December 2014.
