The game has been developed by Bithell Games, the same developer behind Thomas Was Alone, Volume, Subsurface Circular, and Quarantine Circular. These are some of the most noteworthy visual novel-style games of recent memory, and it looks like TRON: Identity will be no exception. With an official license from Disney, this game will also be a canon part of the wider franchise, expanding on the established universe for fans who want more of it in any form. Considering the game can run on Nintendo Switch, it also doesn’t require an incredibly powerful PC, so almost anyone that wants to should be able to run it.
