Heaven’s Vault is a fine game, and not yet a month old, but you might not have heard of it – as an independent production it doesn’t have a massive megaphone. Thankfully now, there’s now a free demo you can try.
The demo is available on Steam this weekend (10th-13th May) and follows main character Aliya, and her robot companion Six, as they explore a palatial ruin. The demo has been released in conjunction with the LudoNarraCon event, where Heaven’s Vault developer Inkle will be.
Aliya is an explorer. She sails through space looking for artifacts from an ancient human civilization. The riches she seeks, however, are to do with understanding their language.
