“1000xRESIST is a dazzling testament to the stories this medium has yet to tell; an exemplification of the best that small yet ambitious teams can create; and a gateway to a future in which more videogame narratives have the courage and soul to tackle the ideas that it executes with equal precision and grace. It’s simply triumphant in everything it sets out to do.”
9.7/10 – Paste

“What 1000xResist does exceptionally well here is to reproduce individual-level anxiety, and reframe and reamplify it on every level of the game's narrative as Watcher's journey spirals beyond a small contained setting into a devastating global spectacle.”
4/5 – Eurogamer

“1000xResist is a revolution in storytelling, creating its own complex and rich fiction that’s beautifully written and spectacularly visualized. By expertly weaving genuine intimate moments with a sharp political identity, it makes its statements with a confidence that leaves an everlasting impact.”
9/10 'Editor's Choice' – IGN


"1000xRESIST nails what it's going for—a blend of "big idea" sci-fi and coming-of-age story."
- PC Gamer

"At its heights, it achieves the cerebral complexity I expect from the likes of Hideo Kojima or Yoko Taro..."
- PC GamesN

"It’s a lucid dream, hand crafted for you. It’s extraordinary. It’s something really very special. In a world plagued by extruded content emanating vacuously from every screen, we should be so lucky."
- Giant Bomb

About This Game

The three time IGF award nominated 1000xRESIST is a thrilling sci-fi adventure. 1000 years in the future, humanity is all but extinguished and a disease spread by an alien occupation keeps the survivors underground. You are Watcher. You dutifully fulfil your purpose in service of the ALLMOTHER, until the day you learn a shocking secret that changes everything.

In the near future we learn we are not alone in the universe. A mysterious alien race of giant entities arrives. We call them the Occupants.

They are not hostile, but it doesn’t matter. Their arrival is a death sentence. Humanity is wiped out in a matter of months, succumbing to a disease the Occupants have brought to our planet.

There is one survivor, a teenage girl called Iris. Somehow she is immune.

1000 years later. Iris is not only immune but immortal. She has birthed a new society consisting exclusively of her own clones.

She calls them Sisters. They call her the ALLMOTHER.

Unlike the ALLMOTHER, the sisters are not immune. They must wear masks 24/7 to avoid breathing the diseased air even in the Orchard - an underground bunker where they live in constant fear of an Occupant attack.

The ALLMOTHER lives in her own compound on the front line of the war with the Occupants. All Sisters dream of one day being able to take the train and join her in the fight.

Within the Orchard, every sister has an assigned function, while six sisters have special roles to play…

  • Principal - Head of administration and oversight of the Orchard
  • Bang Bang Fire - Head of military
  • Knower - Head of knowledge preservation
  • Fixer - Head of engineering
  • Healer - Head of medical and cloning

And you - the new Watcher.

Your role is unique. You have the great privilege of reliving and interpreting the memories of the ALLMOTHER through a process known as Communion, made possible by Secretary, your floating AI companion.

As the game begins, you are excited to embark on your first Communion.

But all is not well.

Your closest sister, Fixer, comes to you with a dangerous revelation. You have been lied to. The ALLMOTHER is not what she claims to be.

Fixer’s claims rock the foundations of your world, throwing everything you know and believe into doubt.

After Fixer is executed for her treason, it falls to you to discover the truth.

Dive into the memories of the ALLMOTHER.

Explore pivotal moments in her life from high school days and the arrival of the Occupants to the creation of the Orchard and the birth of the first sisters.

Jump back and forth through moments in time within these memories to solve puzzles and access locked off areas and secrets.

In between Communions, explore the Orchard - a large underground hub area which houses you and your sisters, has many characters to speak to, and holds many things to uncover.

Find the truth and reclaim your legacy.

Experience perspective shifts both literal and metaphorical as the game blends between 3rd person adventure, visual novel and first person walking simulator while throwing twists, turns and revelations at you until you question everything you think you know.

Born from an eclectic set of inspirations, including the games of Yoko Taro (NieR:Automata), the anime of Satoshi Kon (Perfect Blue) and Naoko Yamada (A Silent Voice), and even the theatre of Robert Wilson (Einstein on the Beach), 1000xRESIST tells a story in ways only a game can while simultaneously bringing fresh ideas to interactive storytelling from theatre, dance, performance art, and cinema.

Enjoy more than 10 hours of playtime brought to life with over 15,000 lines of fully voiced dialogue from a brilliant cast of Asian-Canadian actors and an incredible soundtrack from two composers.



1000xRESIST is created by sunset visitor 斜陽過客, an independent studio based in Vancouver (Canada) dedicated to telling diverse stories through the lens of speculative fiction. We are a group of majority Asian-Canadian diaspora creators with a decade of experience in dance, theatre, music, film, visual arts, and new media arts, bringing our background in the experimental performing arts to interactive media.
