Gamers around the globe needed only 36 hours to collectively raise $50,000 and fully fund Gamedec – a story-driven, cyberpunk-themed adaptive RPG.
It didn’t take them much longer to double the initial goal and reach the $100,000 mark allowing, developers to reveal one of the most significant campaign updates thus far.
April 6th, Katowice, Poland.
After a week and a half since the campaign start, “Gamedec” is now not only fully funded but, thanks to the support of the amazing community out there, managed to reach the $100,000 goal via Kickstarter. This means that at the time of launch, gamers will be able to enjoy a whole new virtual world in the game inspired by another ambitious and unique RPG – Seven: The Days Long Gone.
The Kickstarter campaign for Gamedec, available HERE, will continue for another three weeks, so it’s still possible to support Anshar Studios, the developers responsible for the project. Of course, another form of support would be to add the game to your wishlist on Steam, HERE.
Why Seven: The Days Long Gone? Well, being an open-world, isometric stealth, and action role-playing game, in which you play as Teriel, a master thief sent on a mission that will shake the foundations of the Vetrall Empire, this game is the perfect fit for Gamedec, where you play as a detective solving crimes in virtual worlds.
Thanks to unlocking the $100,00 Kickstarter goal, gamers will get the chance to crack a case related to Seven’s world and be able to see some locations from it as a part of the Gamedec virtualia! Those who are already familiar with Fool’s Theory and IMGN.PRO’s game will surely enjoy revisiting some of the memorable locations once more, while also having the unique feeling of Gamedec gameplay in the world of Seven: The Days Long Gone!
The next Kickstarter campaign milestone is set at a $115,000 and once reached, will guarantee adding French and Spanish localization to the game. However, gamers can already vote for the new virtual world that will be added to the game once the $140,000 mark is reached.
Whether Gamedec will be then enriched with a classic isometric RPG vibe of a post-apocalyptic reality or a perfect detective setting of H.P Lovecraft’s Cthulu lore, is totally up to gamers. And there’s more still to come, so make sure to visit the campaign website frequently not to miss any upcoming updates.
Gamedec is an authentic RPG experience where every decision is important and comes with consequence. The world you live in 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 when least expected.
Whatever you decide, the game will remain neutral, neither judging your choices nor suggesting “better” options. It’s 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. Their new game is built on mechanics like Deduction, a 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, or 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 can be unexpected.
EXPLORE THE CYBERPUNK OF THE XXII CENTURY
Welcome to Warsaw City in the XXII 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. Whether it’s 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.
Like 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.
Gamedec is currently in development. Its release date will be announced shortly.
More information can be found on the game’s official website, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Discord.
