Delete After Reading drops new trailer that reveals more about the game's quirky narrative

Patrones & Escondites has dropped a new trailer for Delete After Reading, the upcoming narrative puzzle adventure from the makers of Unmemory. Available to play as a demo on Steam until June 20th, the game combines elements of text-based titles with escape room gameplay across five chapters.

In Delete After Reading, players can expect to dive into a quirky little tale about rescuing a video game against the will of Destiny himself. Players discover an odd file named Delete After Reading, and are thrust into an adventure to save the last copy of The Curse of Penguin Island. In order to thwart Destiny, you'll have to keep your plans as discreet as possible to solve puzzles and progress through the game.

The game requires players to stay sharp and eagle-eyed as they scour the text and find clues to headscratchers. All these are presented with vibrant visuals with a stylish layout along with voiced lines and funky disco music.
