Spain-based Badland Indie will bring the cyberpunk adventure Dex to PS Vita and PS4 in 2016.
Dex is a 2D side-scrolling, open-world cyberpunk RPG which follows the story of an enigmatic AI striving to reach the Singularity, an event in which artificial intelligence will surpass that of humans and all bets about the future will be off.
Explore the futuristic city of Harbor Prime and meet its many inhabitants, answer the challenges the city has to offer, roam the neon-lit streets, and augment your character gear with skills and implants.
Designed as a tribute to the classic RPGs from the 90ies, updated for a modern audience, Dex invites you to become part of a living, breathing cyberpunk universe as you decide which ultimate path you will embrace.
- 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…
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.
