sonder Announced

Indie developer Kamai Media announces sonder, a third-person action/adventure with a time-rewind mechanic and a capitalization-free proper name. Their announcement teaser trailer shows off the concept, and here's a description:

sonder., (a.k.a. The Station) is a game that is a little different: it's a strongly narrative-focused game where there isn't a main protagonist, or (if you wish) every character is the main protagonist. Usually, the characters that are not the main protagonist end up being merely a backdrop for him, existing only to fulfill a specific role within the narrative arc of the "main" player. Not so in our game, where you are free (and indeed encouraged) to play as any other character, and perceive the single game narrative from their perspective. You can do this any time during play, as many times as you wish.

When you play as a specific character, you make the choices for him – and they have direct consequences on the game world, other characters or even himself. The choices you make determine who, if anyone, survives the adventure that transpires in the game.

Every choice influences what happens in the game, even mundane things like which space to occupy with your character at a certain time. But no choice is final: the player can pause the game at any point, rewind it to any previous point in time (all the way to the beginning, if necessary) and resume playing from that point on, attempting to alter the game’s outcome.

The game makes no judgment on whether a choice is good or bad (you will not fail a mission). It will continue under all circumstances towards a conclusion. Only the player decides whether where he ends up is good or bad.

It definitely sounds interesting, and if that's in-game graphics, it looks pretty nice as well.

Keeping my eye on this.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.
