Publisher Serenity Forge and developer Hack the Publisher have announced Centum, a new narrative-adventure game with an unreliable narrator.

Centum is in development for Windows PC (via Steam) and Xbox Series X|S, with a launch set for this summer.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus its reveal trailer:

Every why has a wherefore. You are trapped, and you must escape. But is that really the goal? Centum is an unreliable narrative-driven adventure where everything may be a lie.

You’re a prisoner in a cell. You have to escape. But is that really the goal?


  • Unreliable Narrator: Centum challenges traditional gaming conventions by weaving an intricate narrative where reality is as fluid as the mind of its narrator.
  • Mind-bending Gameplay: Navigate a series of daunting scenarios, each shrouded in uncertainty and enigma. Every click and decision is remembered, forcing you to grapple with the unreliable nature of the narrator’s hints and guidance.
  • Shape the Story: There is no singular protagonist in Centum; instead, players shape the behavior of an artificial intelligence through their choices, guiding it towards different outcomes and experiences.
  • Dynamic Dialogue System: Engage in conversations that influence the characters’ ego states and alter the course of the narrative.
  • Multiple Endings: With hidden variables persisting between game runs, each playthrough offers new twists, ensuring that no two experiences are alike.
  • Question Reality: Centum speaks of themes that challenge players to question not only the game’s reality but also their own perceptions and beliefs.
