What Remains

It is 1986. You just came home from a skate session when a Nintendo game cartridge falls into your hands. Excited to find out what kind of game is on the cartridge, you visit your friend who got a NES console for Christmas. You plug in the cartridge and a strange list of encrypted files appears...

What Remains is a darkly humorous 8 bit game for the emblematic 1985 NES console, blending visual novel and adventure elements in a captivating story translating real events from the 80s into an epic quest to save the world. As the story unravels, your life in Sunny Peaks transforms dramatically. As you accidentally stumble into this story you start uncovering a dark secret threatening all of Sunny Peaks. But no despair, your best friend is by your side... as well as a very helpful cat.

The game is developed for the original NES hardware. In line with the project’s concept, the game is developed on reused and repurposed cartridges. The ROM will be available for free and can be played in your favourite NES emulator. The source code and the tools created for the development of the game will be published under a free culture license.

The project is developed with support from: creative industries fund NL, Democracy and Media Foundation, Akademie Schloss Solitude, ZKM Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, Het Nieuwe Instituut, V2_, Worm Pirate Bay, Foam Kernow, Servus, Varia, ESC Medien Kunst Labor, Hotel Mariakapel and all the playtesters!
