Flashback Creator's Subject 13 Announced

Microïds announces development of Subject 13, a new adventure game from designer Paul Cuisset, creator of several old school adventures, including the classic Flashback. Details are scant for now, here is a piece of concept art, and here's the announcement:

Microïds, the indie publisher specializing in adventure titles, and noted game designer Paul Cuisset today revealed Cuisset’s new adventure game project, Subject 13. The title marks the return of the Flashback creator to the adventure genre where he first made his mark with acclaimed games such as Future Wars, The Stealth Affair, and Cruise for a Corpse.

Cuisset first rose to prominence when he wrote, directed, designed and co-programmed Flashback, a worldwide hit that was listed in the Guinness World Records as the “best-selling French game of all time.” After experiencing success in other genres, such as motorcycle racing with the Moto Racer saga and Action RPG with Darkstone, Cuisset decided to once again explore the adventure game universe with a title that transports the player to a mysterious and intriguing world.

In Subject 13, players will take on the role of Franklin Fargo, a reclusive physics professor. Fargo leads a solitary and bitter existence following the death of his fiancée, Sophie, during a robbery that should have targeted him. One morning, he wakes up in an abandoned underground scientific facility with no external contact other than a mysterious voice. The voice calls him "Subject 13." As Franklin Fargo, players will interact with the 3D environment around them by collecting, using, and manipulating objects to overcome a multitude of devious barriers to the professor’s escape. Fargo’s goal is to not only set himself free but discover the true reasons for his imprisonment—can he escape from the prison of his past?
