New Winter Voices Episode Available

BeyondthePillars has announced the release of Those Who Have No Name, the next episode of Winter Voices. The seven episode RPG chronicles the saga of a young heroine who, after the death of her father, must follow the mysterious voices of her unconscious mind to find the answers she seeks.

Gamers who embark on the wondrous, psychological adventure of Winter Voices must embrace a new form of role-playing, leading the heroine past her own personal demons come to life.

“Prepare for serious introspection as you dive into Winter Voices,” said Guy Levi-Bochi, CEO of Beyondthepillars. “This is a game for anyone who wants to truly immerse themselves in a fantastic, dark world through creative narrative. Players must navigate a strange and harsh environment with the power of their minds as their lone protection against the elements. Only this winter is not one of Mother Nature’s doing, but one of the mind and these harsh conditions may just be illusion, guilt and madness...”

Players will confront these terrors by choosing one of three female character classes and helping their heroine persevere her difficult journey. It is a challenging and snowy ordeal, bringing her face-to-face with strangers and travelers as she leaves behind the familiar faces of her home village. To progress, players need to guide her beyond the fears plaguing her journey, including the physical embodiment of her worst enemy: her own dark consciousness.

Players build their mind defenses in Winter Voices through an extensive talent tree of 120 skills. The mind must do many things to survive, including:
  • Embrace the Void: Nothingness overcomes your psyche and provides temporary resistance to pain
  • Acceptance of Fate: Sometimes there is no escape from taking damage. Accepting this fate imbues your psyche with momentary invulnerability
  • Love Thyself: To survive a traumatic encounter in Winter Voices, it takes more than just courage. Indulge in yourself to overcome your enemies
  • I Don’t Want to Believe: If you don’t believe something is hurting you, the pain will lessen. Bolster your character’s base resistance to pain with denial
Winter Voices recently introduced its unique “defense of the mind” gameplay mechanics in a prologue episode, “Avalanche,” which is also available by download. Gamers who dive into the dark world can now enjoy the prologue and Episode 1, “Those who have no name.” Beyondthepillars will continue releasing new episodes in the seven-part series every few weeks.
Each episode of Winter Voices costs $4.99. Check out the link below to learn more.
