Written by award-winning writer Matthew Seiji Burns, Director/Writer of the critically acclaimed visual novel Eliza, EDENGATE: The Edge of Life takes players on an emotional journey through the eyes of Mia, a promising young biologist who wakes up to find herself in an abandoned hospital with no memory of the events leading up to her awakening. The concept and development of the game were formed during the most difficult months of the pandemic and are a representation of the fear, isolation and uncertainty in the future that the development team felt during this time. Their hope is to convey these emotions through EDENGATE’s emotional narrative and gameplay experience enhanced by a haunting soundtrack composed by Laryssa Okada, composer for the renowned Manifold Garden.

With no other traces of life, Mia tries to piece together the events that brought her to the hospital and unravel the mystery of the now-desolate city of Edengate. What happened to her? What happened to the world she remembers? Join Mia on her emotional journey to discover any traces of life and the terrifying events that have befallen the once-vibrant city. A fusion of exploration, investigation, puzzle solving and meaningful decision-making will lead you on an emotional journey and unveil the events leading to Mia’s awakening.
