Gameplay Features

  • Throughout the story, you have the opportunity to collect weapons and armor to add to your arsenal and get an edge against your enemies. You also have choices in expanding your colony.
  • This story shares several mechanics with the Blades of Light and Shadow series, such as a level system, side missions, injuries, and a collectible set that unlocks a bonus scene if you collect all the items.
  • At the end of every chapter is a recap and a progress report, similar to The Crown & The Flame series.

Hard Choices

As the story progresses, you will encounter hard choices similar to the Endless Summer series. However, the mechanics are different: whereas Endless Summer had choices that had the chance of great success or failure, Wake the Dead involves distinct choices with inevitable consequences for either that might be felt later down the road.
