Following its announcement in 2019 and the consequent release of the Demo, The Rewinder has charmed global audiences with its unique ink-like pixel art style and innovative puzzle design.
The Rewinder tells a story inspired by Chinese mythology. In this game, players are placed into the role of the titular “Rewinder” Qi Yun, with the ability to communicate with spirits and explore other people’s memories to alter the past. Tasked by the guards of the underworld, Qi Yun set out to investigate a peculiar case of disappearances and deaths in a small village. As the investigation progresses, players will get to travel in time, meet mythological creatures, and shed light on the truth behind a story shrouded in mystery.
In this new trailer featuring, among other things, an instrument-playing ghost, a “talking” bird, and a familiar stranger, new characters are unveiled as new questions emerge.
The new promotion video also features an original song composed and performed by musician KALA, bringing a nostalgic and melancholic sound that complements the atmosphere of this video.
We leave you with a translation of the lyrics:
Moonlight scatters, music echoes;
The past need not matter, life is full of cycles.
In dreams far apart, my path was once clear;
I wish to follow my heart, as the music guides me here.
