Gemini Rue est un pointer-et-cliquer d'aventure futuriste mettant en scène un ancien tueur à gages devenu policier, qui suit la piste menant à son frère sur la planète pluvieuse de Barracus


Azriel Odin, un ex-assassin, arrive sur la planète détrempée de Barracus. Et c'est alors que tout tourne horriblement mal, il ne peut demander l'aide qu'aux criminels avec qui il travaillait autrefois.

Au même moment, à travers la galaxie, un homme dénommé Delta-Six se réveille dans un hôpital, amnésique. Sans savoir à qui s'adresser ou à qui faire confiance, il jure de s'échapper avant de perdre complètement son identité.

Alors que le destin les rapproche, nous découvrons un monde où la vie est bon marché, les identités sont achetées et vendues, et la quête de la rédemption peut changer le destin de toute une galaxie.

Gemini Rue est un jeu vidéo d'aventure graphique américain créé par Joshua Nuernberger et publié par Wadjet Games. Ce jeu emploie une interface en pointer-et-cliquer par laquelle le joueur interagit avec l'environnement, résout des énigmes et communique avec les personnages.

Synopsis

Gemini Rue suit parallèlement l'histoire de deux personnages. Azriel Odin est un ancien tueur à gages devenu policier, qui suit piste après piste pour retrouver son frère sur la planète pluvieuse de Barracus. Delta-6, quant à lui, est un amnésique prisonnier d'un centre de rééducation high-tech.
Univers

Le jeu se passe entre les années 2228 et 2229, dans un monde où l'humanité a colonisé de nombreuses planètes à travers la galaxie. L'histoire se passe dans le système Gemini, en particulier dans la ville de Pittsburgh sur la colonie minière perpétuellement pluvieuse de Barracus, et dans le centre de rééducation de Center 7. Le système Gemini a récemment obtenu son indépendance vis-à-vis de Taurus, au prix d'une guerre qui a ravagé son économie. Cette guerre a aussi permis au puissant syndicat du crime du Boryokudan de se renforcer en vendant une nouvelle drogue, le « Juice ».

Description [en]

Azriel Odin, ex-assassin, arrives on the rain-drenched planet of Barracus. When things go horribly wrong, he can only seek help from the very criminals he used to work for.

Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a man called Delta-Six wakes up in a hospital with no memory. Without knowing where to turn or who to trust, he vows to escape before he loses his identity completely.

As fate brings these two closer together, we discover a world where life is cheap, identities are bought and sold, and a quest for redemption can change the fate of a whole galaxy.


Wikipedia:

Gemini Rue is a cyberpunk graphic adventure game made by Joshua Nuernberger, and published by Wadjet Eye Games. The game uses a point and click interface to interact with the environment to solve puzzles and communicate with characters.

Gameplay

Gemini Rue is a graphic adventure game, where the player controls a character to explore their local environment and interact with people and objects as to solve puzzles. An additional feature above most graphic adventure games is a limited gunplay control scheme, where the player can control their character to shoot and aim from behind cover. The character Azriel possesses a communicator device that lets him call other characters or look up information on terminals via a limited text interface. At certain times, the player is able to switch between two characters, located in different areas of the game's world, proceeding through each of these stories separately until they reach a common story.

Plot

Gemini Rue takes place in the 23rd century within the "Gemini System", a star system recently declared independent from the Taurus and Pleaidas System through the war ten years prior to the beginning of the game. Though peace has come, the war left a power void, and the mafia-like Boryokudan crime syndicate controls much of the system, using its control of a drug called "Juice".

The game initially follows two characters. One is Azriel Odin, an assassin now turned to a law enforcer who is seeking to get any information about his brother Daniel. While searching the planet of Barracus, Azriel is aided by his friend and pilot Kane Harris, who maintains their spacecraft in orbit. Azriel comes to aid Matthius Howard, a friend of Azriel's from the previous war who is wanted by the Boryokudan and who claims to have information on Daniel's location. His information is tentative, pointing to a secret facility, Center 7, in a nearby nebula where Daniel may have been taken. Azriel convinces the Boryokudan to give him the location of Center 7 in exchange for Azriel retrieving a missing Juice supply to the Boryokudan, which is eventually revealed to have been stolen by a woman named Sayuri, who reveals she had escaped from Center 7 one year previously. Azriel eventually gets the location of Center 7 while still destroying the Juice supply, and leaves Barracus for Center 7 along with Kane, Matthius, and Sayuri, who claims to have "left someone behind" on Center 7.

The other character is Delta-Six, who later takes the name "Charlie". When Delta-Six first awakes he finds himself in a "rehabilitation center" for "criminals", lacking any memories of his past, but promised by the center's "director" that by completing tests involving gun training he will be allowed to go free. As he meets other patients, it is clear that he previously had tried to escape the facility but had his mind wiped after he was captured. Giselle, one of the patients that had tried to help him escape before, directs him to keep up the escape plan and not to complete the final test as he would be sent to have his mind wiped again. Charlie is nearly killed by another patient, Balder, who is angered by his attempts to escape, but Charlie breaks free and burns off most of Balder's face in his escape. He attempts escape along with Giselle and Epsilon-Five, another prisoner, who does not choose a name for herself (the name "Sayuri" is suggested by Giselle). Giselle is killed and Charlie wounded and recaptured by an angry Balder (with his face having undergone surgery). Epsilon-Five escapes.

Kane's ship arrives at Center 7, and Azriel and Sayuri set off to locate where Daniel may be held. The computers give no information on Daniel's location, prompting them to continue to the director's office where more complete records would be found. They suddenly find themselves trapped in a room slowly filling with a sleep gas, where the director watches from an adjoining room. The director explains that Azriel is really Charlie – after Charlie's failed escape a year ago, he was wiped of his memory again, and this time given the identity of an assassin Azriel, which they had trained him for before. However, Azriel left his assassin's life due to "a part of the psyche the rehabilitation cannot change - the conscience." After Azriel left the Boryokudan, the director triggered the memory of Daniel as a means of recalling Azriel back to Center 7, where he now plans to re-wipe his memory and create a new identity for him. Matthius is revealed to have been Balder, and was to help seed the idea of Azriel's brother. Sayuri is Epsilon-Five.

With Azriel taken to be mind-wiped, Sayuri and Kane are captured, but they manage to escape. They free Azriel before the full memory wipe can be completed, and set the station to self-destruct. However, both Azriel and Sayuri desire to get their original memories back which would been stored on the director's computer. They race there, with Azriel killing Matthius en route, and run into a standoff with the director, who explains that the station's purpose is to create these assassins and other mercenaries for the Boryokudan from innocent people, and asserts that the human condition is nothing but their memories. The director shoots Sayuri, and Azriel shoots and kills the director. Azriel moves towards the director's databases, but Sayuri says she does not want to know her past. The two escape with Kane just as the station explodes, the other patients safely making it off in a second craft. As Kane takes them out of the nebula, Sayuri contemplates that there is more to being a human being than a person's memories.
