Enslaved is game set in a post-apocalyptic world that is now being reclaimed by nature, with several of the war-machines from the great conflicts left behind, as well as an evil empire that seeks to control the world. This retelling of the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West has been re-shaped to make a game that plays like a page-turner novel reads. Players will be in awe and won’t want to put it down, but there is more to it than that.
The player takes on the role of Monkey, working alongside his captor, Trip, after escaping an enemy slave ship. The amazing facial animations only serve to accent Andy Serkis’ (Gollum from Lord of the Rings) masterful performance of Monkey, playing off of the strong-willed and snarky beauty known as Trip (Tripitaka). Having procured one of the slave headbands from the ship before escaping, Trip has enslaved Monkey and intends to use him as her personal bodyguard to get safely home.
