Nobody trusts anybody, and we’re all very tired
Great news for Sci-fi and mystery fans, as Playism’s stylistic “social deduction” release Gnosia is now available to purchase on PC, following on from its Nintendo Switch back in the spring of 2021.
Gnosia, developed by indie outfit Petit Depot, tasks the player with rooting out a dangerous imposter aboard a lonely space vessel. I know what you’re thinking, but no, not like that. Gnosia has the player step into the role of one of a number of crew members, forced to face inward when a mysterious being — the titular Gnosia — infiltrates the team, manifesting as one of the isolated group.
The player must use investigation and interrogation to not only identify, but convince the others of, the Gnosias’ current identities. The suspects are then placed into a “cold sleep” in a desperate effort to isolate the baddies. So you better be darn sure. Not only that, but you also need to ensure that you don’t end up on the suspicion list yourself, lest you find yourself taking a frozen nap… Or much, much worse.
Meet a wide cast of extremely colorful characters, enjoy some pretty wild art and music, put your finest deductive skills to the test, and, who knows, maybe you won’t spend the rest of space winter TIED TO THIS FUCKING COUCH!
Gnosia is available for PC via Steam now, priced at $24.99. You can check out our own CJ Andriessen’s review of the Nintendo Switch edition right here.
