30 JULY 2020 – Late Night Games are happy to announce their upcoming interactive fiction RPG, “Cyberpunkdreams“, with a debut trailer and beta sign-up wait-list.
cyberpunkdreams is a text-based, free-to-play RPG set across the sprawling city of Cincinnati, 2092 – a city of glistening corporate towers, urban decay and little in-between. Players arrive stripped of their memories, with no more than a weapon strapped to their belt and a singular objective echoing around their head.
A follow-on from the successfully Kickstarted illustrated short fiction collection cyberpunkdreams: cincinnati stories, this new interactive adventure aims to be accessible for both veterans of the genre, as well as those looking to experience dystopian interactive fiction for the first time, in a world just around the corner from our own.
Players can sign up to join the beta of cyberpunkdreams right now via the official website to not only be the first to enter the city’s walls, but also unlock exclusive items reserved only for pre-launch players.
Choice and opportunity are at the heart of this evolving adventure, with a staggering 1.5 million words of content ready to explore and new stories planned each month alongside limited-time in-game events.
Creator and author Rob Chant said, “cyberpunkdreams has been in development since 2013, so I’m incredibly excited about the beta release. Having a growing community of players will make a huge difference to ongoing development over the coming months and years.
“Players can expect a visceral, uncompromising and deep experience. The game rewards exploration, risk-taking and, more than anything else, serious role playing – making in-character decisions even when they’re against your better judgement.”
Players can sign up for the free beta of cyberpunkdreams here. The full release of the game will include optional microtransactions.
cyberpunkdreams is an evolving text-based role-playing adventure with countless opportunities and endless chances for destruction.
Take on the role of a lone wanderer sent to the gates of Cincinnati, in 2092. Dust from the desert badlands coats your clothes and skin – with your memories torn from you, all you have is a weapon on your hip, and a mission to complete.
Enter a live, evolving world – With more stories and quests added each month alongside limited-time in-game events, there will always be something new waiting around the next street corner.
Experience simple, uncompromising cyberpunk – In a world just around the corner from our own, this is cyberpunk both for genre experts and those looking to experience a dystopian future for the first time.
Evolve your abilities through your actions – Levelling up your skills and talents is intrinsically tied to your successes and failures on the streets of Cincinnati.
Watch your choices impact the city – Your choices aren’t detached from the lives of the people around you. NPCs will evolve on their own, remember and react to the alliances you announce, the mercy you give and the morals you stand by.
Customise, augment and upgrade – From your clothes and equipment to your load-out and cybernetics, you are free to alter yourself however you choose – if you have the parts.
