Venture alongside Grace’s various fractured personalities as you uncover the great mystery that led to her deactivation.

Alone and faced with limited resources in a dangerous environment, this journey could be intrepid Adie’s last.
We are accompanied by a cast of AI characters, making our solitary mission not all that lonely. These companions can support us in solving problems and understanding humanity in this sci-fi environment.
The only inhabitants of the site are variations of the AI “Grace”. Each with their own quirky personalities and unknown motives.
Adie must choose which personalities to build relationships with. Meanwhile she tries to uncover the secret of why the AI is offline from thousands of years.
Adie and the AIs are fully voiced. Return to Grace will features the talents of Karen Knox, Athena Karkanis, Alexandra Ordolis and Dick Terhune.
