Ego is the story of a young boy who - born with a genetic mutation which causes him to grow wings - is destined to die, to ward off the evil prophecy that his wings represent. Awaiting execution in the bowels of an ancient fortress, Ego is granted a single chance for freedom. Whether through freak coincedence or an act of divine intervention, the fortress is attacked by unknown forces, and Ego is set free by a mysterious cloaked benefactor.
So begins a journey in which you, playing as Ego, search for an escape route. With the help of your newfound ally, you must sneak, climb, and fight your way to freedom from the shadowy dungeons of the fortress.
Ego is a traditional cinematic platformer game with role playing and non-linear gameplay elements. Instead of running-and-gunning your way through the game, you must outsmart your enemies. Use the enviroment to set traps. Use stealth to sneak by unnoticed. Or, if you've got the guts, fight back and use their own weapons against them.
