Anshar Studios is happy to confirm that their upcoming cyberpunk isometric RPG will also launch on Nintendo Switch. This means that platform owners won’t miss the chance to get to know this incredibly authentic RPG experience, where every decision is important and comes with consequences. Imagine a Warsaw City of the future and a world that always adapts to the decisions you make. As the story progresses, your hero adapts as well. Just like in real life, the consequences of your choices can be immediate, long-term, or stay hidden, surfacing only when you least expect them. Whatever you decide, the game will remain neutral, without judging your choices or suggesting “better” options. It’s up to you to evaluate what you’ve done, as in Gamedec, you are the sum of your choices.
It’s worth to consider adding the game to your wishlist on Steam (https://store.steampowered.com/app/917720/Gamedec/). Especially that just recently Gamedec won first place in the devcom Indie Awards and got two nominations for the Best RPG (Gamescom Awards) and Best Story (Indie Arena Booth).
Back in April of this year, Gamedec not only tripled its initial $50,000 Kickstarter goal but finished the campaign with more than $170,000 collected and a promise that if the $200,000 mark is reached, the game will also be released on Nintendo Switch. A day or two longer, and thanks to gamers’ tremendous support, this stretch goal would have been in the books as well. But the campaign ended, and the developers faced a choice. They could either move forward accepting that Switch owners will miss the opportunity to play the game, or show how grateful they are that so many players believed in their project and bring the game to Nintendo’s console anyway. Naturally, they decided to go with the second option.
During Gamescom, gamers recently had the chance to try out the game’s PC demo version available on Steam at the Indie Arena Booth and GOG.com simultaneously. Those who missed it should mark PAX Online on their calendars, because between September 12th and 20th, the Gamedec PC demo will again become available on both of those platforms for all willing to conduct their first investigations as gaming detectives.
Chinese gamers should also keep an eye on the Sonkwo online event that will take place between September 10th and 13th, where the Gamedec PC demo will be available.
Gamedec is an authentic RPG experience where every decision is important and comes with consequences. The world in which you live adapts to each decision you make. As the story progresses, your hero adapts as well. Just like in “real” life, the consequences of your choices can be immediate, long-term, or stay hidden, surfacing only when you least expect them. Whatever you decide, the game will remain neutral, without judging your choices or suggesting “better” options. It is up to you to evaluate what you’ve done, bearing in mind that you are the sum of your choices.
Anshar Studios returns to the foundations of the RPG genre with their new game, built on mechanics like Deduction, the Codex, and Aspects. These allow for complex conversations and interactions as players create or expose networks of conspiracies while discovering unusual relationships between virtual worlds. Gamedec’s pen-and-paper based RPG mechanics give players the freedom to approach situations from multiple perspectives.
YOU ARE THE SUM OF YOUR CHOICES
Your goal is to hunt down the criminals of virtual worlds – rich and spoiled businesspeople, parents who want better lives for their children, corporations with plans to rewrite history. Are they acting alone, or are they mere puppets? What does a “happy ending” mean to you? To them? Each decision changes the world around you and your character’s personality. Some decisions will feel right, but others might be unexpected.
EXPLORE THE CYBERPUNK OF THE 22ND CENTURY
Welcome to Warsaw City in the 22nd century, where “real” is relative and “life” and “death” have many meanings. Real and virtual worlds have merged, giving rise to ancient vices: lust, sloth, pride, envy… That’s why everyone needs gamedecs – specialists who solve real problems in virtual worlds. Be it the Wild West or a prehistoric amusement park, these and many other worlds reveal our inclinations and weaknesses.
EXPERIENCE THE ESSENCE OF ROLE-PLAYING
Use your wits to gather info from witnesses and suspects, get to the bottom of deceptive schemes, save lives, and investigate the extraordinary relationships between virtual worlds and their inhabitants. Gamedec emulates the nature of tabletop RPGs by focusing on character development through decision making. As in classic tabletop RPGs, you’re given the freedom to approach situations from multiple angles rather than forcing a single solution – the choice is yours and yours alone.
