Explore the dark alleys of Harbor Prime and a host of diverse locations in both physical reality and the wild reaches of cyberspace. Discover the truth behind an enigmatic AI striving to reach the Singularity, a theoretical “event horizon” in which artificial intelligence will surpass human intelligence and all bets about the future will be off. How will you play your part in the story?

Main Features

  • Rare melding of realism and creative vision: Realistic action, mature storyline, and complex character interactions meld with hand-drawn characters, animations, and locations, arcade-style melee combat, and an original conception of cyberspace.
  • Multiple solutions to problems: Operate in cyberspace or normal reality. Overcome obstacles using skills, weapons, special equipment…
  • Meaningful character progression choices: Will you be a silent assassin, a hacker, or a straightforward gunfighter? Improve your character and gear to unlock gameplay-changing upgrades that reinforce and customize your gameplay style.
  • Unique hacking mechanic: Transfer your consciousness to your avatar, overcome intrusion countermeasures, take action, and then return back to your body in a fraction of a real-time second to see the results – deactivated turrets, overloaded devices, enemies with crippled implants…
  • Neo-cyberpunk: Story deeply inspired by the cyberpunk novels of William Gibson and other classical cyberpunk authors, flavored with a contemporary concept of augmented reality.
  • Rich game world and mindful level design: Visit diverse locations in Harbor Prime, a futuristic city complete with luxurious skyscrapers, run-down shantytowns, and seedy red-light districts. Take part in street brawls, steal corporate data, overcome environmental hazards, and, of course, stay alive – no easy task.
  • Full voice acting: Interactive dialogues using hand-drawn sprite animations, fully voice-acted by professional actors.

Hey all!

We are thrilled to announce that were selected for the Indie MEGABOOTH showcase at this year’s Gamescom, August 13th-17th 2014, in Cologne, Germany! That means we’ll have a booth at Gamescom, the largest European games convention! This will be the first time that Indie MEGABOOTH has crossed the big pond and is taking place in Europe – and we are part of it!

There will be a dense concentration of uber-cool indie games at Gamescom in Hall 10.1, all under the umbrella of Indie MEGABOOTH! Simply being chosen as one of the games for Indie MEGABOOTH is a great honor for us. Just consider some of the other attendees: Unclaimed World (hard sci-fi colony sim, a great-looking game somewhat resembling good old Gene Wars), Cosmonautica(“Imagine Elite meets the Sims!” is the official tagline and we can’t think of better way to describe it!), Dungeon of the Endless (roguelike dungeon defense, all done in neat pixelart), The Next Penelope (2D space racer with neo-‘80s visuals), and Shadowrun Online (Hoi, Chummers!)… nice!

But wait, there’s more – lots and lots more – super cool indie games! Make sure to check out the full line-up. There are a couple of really interesting RPGs… more sci-fi and fantasy games… and, well, you just need to see for yourself!

If you plan to attend Gamescom, definitely stop by to say hi and have a cup of soylent while playing the latest version of Dex! And if you are undecided yet – come on and attend, it will be great!

We’ll be there in larger force than we were at EGX Rezzed, probably five or six of us (discussing that right now). In case you miss the event or if you can’t attend, follow us on Facebook or Twitter – we’ll do with Gamescom as we did with Rezzed, so you can look forward to photos, interviews, videos, and anything else we can share! That’s it now – see you there physically or digitally!

(And yes – we’ll have a couple more big-time news items coming just before Gamescom. Wink!)

Met 2 of the team and played the game at Razzed 2015 today. Sorry I forgot your names, really nice lass and lad :)
The game is much in the vain/vein/vane of Shadowrun Returns and Deus Ex.
Got my play through into mischief by whacking up my mêlée skills and punching my way through the corporations security guards :) Fun
Plenty of promise on show. Good work guys.

Is this some kind of 2D Deus Ex? The first Deus Ex is one of my most favorite games of all time!
