Mesmer is a unique social survival game where every encounter matters. As a revolution leader, influence people and factions into following your cause, while keeping yourself out of the spotlight of the secret police. The stakes are high, and the dangers are many. But there is hope yet. Will you be the one to turn the tide, and lead the people of Mesmer towards a better future?
In 2020 we launched Mesmer, Rains most experimental game yet. Set in the Teslagrad universe, we wanted to use the principles of a living and dynamic world seen in survival games, but set it in a populated city where you would have to fight for survival in an ever worsening politic landscape as the city changed for the worse around you. The game includes a unique dialogue system, and a naturally evolving city-spanning social network, and a narrative that carries on whatever happens to the individual characters involved in it.
- Deep, narrative driven gameplay, where your choices matter
- An enticing blend of social manipulation, stealth and riot gameplay
- Unique survival mechanics, where social influence is your main resource
- Leverage multiple social factions, each with their own goals
- Multiple endings based on your choices
