The Complex is an interactive, choice-based sci-fi thriller from Wales Interactive, the publisher and developer of numerous FMV games, including Late Shift, The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker, and The Shapeshifting Detective.
After a major bio-weapon attack on London, two scientists find themselves in a locked-down laboratory with time, and air, running out. With CYOA-style gameplay, your actions and your relationship with other characters will lead you to one of eight suspenseful endings.
Having treated the victims of a chemical attack in the totalitarian state of Kindar, Dr Amy Tenant is a leader in the advancement of Nanocell Technology. Now, in London, news breaks of a blood-vomiting civilian whose identity is far from coincidental. Reunited with an old friend, Amy is trapped in an impenetrable HQ of laboratories – a womb of scientific advancement with a perilous secret.
Throughout the game you will interact with characters and – depending on your choices – will either strengthen or weaken your relationship. The relationship scores are calculated from the start right through to the very end and will affect certain scenarios as well as having major consequences in the concluding scenes.
For every decision you make, every interaction, your character’s personality is being tracked. At the end of each playthrough, you are rewarded with a Personality Score and a breakdown to see how you played the game. Discover the five basic dimensions of a personality: openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. Which of those will your character play?
The Complex is written by Lynn Renee Maxcy, part of the Emmy award-winning writing team from The Handmaid’s Tale. The interactive movie stars Michelle Mylett (Letterkenny, Bad Blood), Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones, The Witch) and Al Weaver (Grantchester). It also features a guest acting performance by Twitch streamer and former Xbox UK presenter, Leah Viathan.
