Inspired by traditional Chinese folklore, the game uses pixel art to mimic the aesthetics of Chinese ink paintings. 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 player takes on the role of Qi Yun, a "Rewinder" who has the ability to enter people's memories and influence their actions. 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.
The Rewinder will launch on Steam on September 13th. Keep an eye on it if you are charmed by the unique art style and puzzles.
