Inkle's 80 Days is one of the few modern text adventures to capture the appeal of the general public, winning Time's Game Of The Year in 2014. Now Inkle has unveiled its new project: Heaven's Vault, an interactive sci-fi adventure meant to emulate graphic novels. The game features 2D characters moving in a 3D environment.

Heaven's Vault follows archaeologist Aliya and her robot, Six, as they journey through the cosmos in search of the hidden truths of the universe. The game has no release date yet but Inkle says it will be available on both console and PC. We'll have detailed impressions of our time with Heaven's Vault later this week.
