Release: Unrest - Special Edition

Watching beginnings of social decay, gloating or sneering at life's disarray.
Unrest - Special Edition, an fantastic RPG set in alternative ancient India, full of meaningful choices affecting the branching narrative, is available 10% off for Windows and Mac OS X, on GOG.com. That's $22.49 for the first week!
Set in a fantasy interpretation of ancient India, Unrest is an adventure RPG focused on story and choices. Play as five ordinary people who are struggling to get by in the in the famine-stricken city-state of Bhimra. Brave poverty, disease, treason, political and social upheaval. Face unique burdens and gripping dilemmas as you struggle to survive in each chapter...but choices made to help one character may well make life harder for another. In Unrest, there are no heroes of legend, there is no mystical quest, and fate has not chosen you. You're on your own.
Unrest - Special Edition lets you take on the role of a peasant girl faced with an arranged marriage, a priest troubled by his radical temple, a slum dweller with a dangerous past, an ambassador from a militant nation, and a mercenary captain far out of his depth - all as part of the same narrative. Hard decisions made in one chapter have consequences in the next. A choice made as one character may well determine the fate of another. There are no fail states in Unrest - if a character dies or fails in their objectives, that becomes part of the tale. Organic, branching dialogues designed to offer an unparalleled level of control and involvement to the player. The Special Edition offered here comes with The Unrest OST, a 12-track instrumental album inspired by Indian classical music, a novella set in Bhimra, high-res digital posters, including a concept map of Bhimra, behind the scenes developer footage as well as some concept art & design documents.
