Major Update Brings Gamepad Support and Demo to the Digital Worlds of Gamedec
Katowice, Poland—November 18, 2021—Anshar Studios is excited to announce the upcoming release of a new demo and a major update to their non-combat, cyberpunk isometric RPG, Gamedec. The update will add gamepad support, backer created and inspired content (posters, graffiti, voicemail, and more), and include more than 100 bug fixes improving story content, gameplay, and localization.
The demo, coming to Steam November 24, puts players in the shoes of a digital detective early on in a story spread across the digital worlds of 22nd century Warsaw. Begin as a gamedec employed by a powerful benefactor to rescue a child trapped in a virtual world—choices in how cases are solved and what the outcomes are send players on radically different branching journeys.
To celebrate the upcoming update, Anshar Studios has Gamedec on sale for 20% off on all available platforms as well as discounts on their other titles. The team has also plans to release Gamedec Steam Trading Cards and a selection of emoticons, backgrounds, stickers, and avatars in the Steam Points Shop.
Gamedec is available for $29.99 on Steam, Epic Games Store, GOG, and Humble Store in English, Polish, Germain, Simplified Chinese, Russian, French, and Spanish. Gamedec has been announced as a forthcoming Switch release and Korean, Japanese and Traditional Chinese localization is planned for a future update.
Gamedec is an authentic RPG experience where decisions are important and come 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. 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, 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, 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.
