A Lost Language Reveals a Buried Past
Set in a strange region of space called the Nebula, Heaven's Vault is a vast and incredibly flexible narrative game that shapes its story around your every decision.
You are archeologist Aliya Elasra, on a mission with your robot assistant Six to track down a missing roboticist who left a trail of ancient relics in his wake. Sail to the very edge of Aliya's world to solve a historical mystery that can only be understood by translating the long-lost language of her ancestors -- a massive linguistic puzzle that will reveal the region's earliest secrets, if you can crack it.
Following its initial PC and PS4 release, Heaven's Vault won the IGF's Excellence in Narrative award and was recognized by the New Yorker, BAFTA, Mashable, Paste, GamesIndustry.biz, and others as one of 2019's best games. The game is developed by inkle, creators of 80 Days, which is also available for Nintendo Switch.
This new version of Heaven's Vault has been optimized for Nintendo Switch and can be enjoyed in both console and handheld mode. With each new playthrough the story changes, the translation puzzles become more complex, and you'll dig ever deeper into the Nebula's forgotten past.
