Get your cyberpunk RPG fill with Anshar Studios' latest release
Ah, RPGs... we love an RPG, don’t you?
A deep and interesting story, choice and creation all mix together to create something that’s just altogether intriguing. Gamedec looks to continue that trend as a single-player cyberpunk isometric RPG that’s got a lot of people talking about it.
Here, we take a look at five reasons why you need to check out Anshar Studios' latest release on PC.
Like many games before it, you don’t fight in Gamedec. Heck, you’re not even given the option to fight. No, you play as a game detective, a detective that solves crimes specifically inside the virtual plane of existence. This means you need to gather together clues and judge for yourself who you think committed a certain crime. It’s all down to you and your decisions, whether that be for the good cause or the bad cause.
When it comes to video games, people like choice. I mean, who wouldn’t like the ability to pick between a good or bad option, a morally grey option even? I love a branching path in a game, it’s the reason why Mass Effect stands up there as one of my favourite series ever made. Gamedec continually adapts to your decisions and your ideas, changing the narrative and way you need to play the game.
Who doesn’t love cyberpunk?
Okay, the obvious reason and answer aside. Cyberpunk is a genre filled with complex exploration of social issues in addition to looking really goddamn cool. Gamedec continues that trend of exploring how futurism could lead to disaster and how the future is pretty scary at times.
A Huge Skill Tree
You want to specialise in something specific? Go for it, the world is your oyster. You’re given a selection of categories in Gamedec, all of which allow you to upgrade something else very specifically tailored to your ideals. If you want to be better at deducting who the culprit is, you can invest your time and your upgrades into that, but if you’d rather do something else then well, the choice is completely and utterly yours.
The critics love it
If everything we've said so far hasn’t persuaded you, how about these?
