Polish developer Anshar Studios has joined forces with an Asian publisher, Whisper Games, and is excited to announce that they will work together to bring their 1st party game – Gamedec, to Asian Markets.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – May 31st, Katowice, Poland.
As the result of the partnership between both companies, Gamedec will launch on PC across China, Japan, South Korea, and other Asian territories, adding further to the already amassed player base Anshar Studios built around their Kickstarter campaign.
Add the game to your wishlist on Steam (https://store.steampowered.com/app/917720/Gamedec/).
The game will be localized in simplified and traditional Chinese, Japanese and Korean languages, cementing the Anshar Studios ambition to bring the IP to a broader audience.
“Anshar Studios wants to provide our gamers with systemic narrative role-playing experiences.” – said Łukasz Hacura, CEO of Anshar Studios.
“Whisper Games is in a strong position as a publisher, with titles like Disco Elysium or Realms Beyond under their wings. With their commitment, they will help us reach a whole new audience – we are confident that with their resources and publishing channels, together we can successfully bring Gamedec to Asian markets.”
Markets like China, Japan, and South Korea provide so much potential for Western studios and publishers looking to make their mark. The hunger for quality games in these three regions is frankly astronomical.
Gamedec is an authentic RPG experience where every decision comes with consequences. The world 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. Just remember that in this job, the game is always on.
Anshar Studios returns to the foundations of the RPG genre with their new game, built on mechanics such as Deduction, 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? What does it mean 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 or 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 to force a single solution – the choice is yours, and yours alone.
