Many gamers are anticipating the release of CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077, which will be out next year. And if you’re craving for more cyberpunk RPGs, then 2020 is the year for you. Anshar Studios, a Polish studio like CD Project Red, is developing an adaptive, cyberpunk RPG titled Gamedec where you play as a private detective on the hunt for criminal activity in virtual game worlds.

A reveal trailer for Gamedec has been released in preparation for its debut at Gamescom 2019. The futuristic world of Warsaw City is lively with its inhabitants and the neon lights. Crime is everywhere, and as a Gamedec, it’s up to you to solve them.

Synopsis: It’s Warsaw City in the 22nd century, and thanks to the existence of virtual worlds, “reality” is a relative concept, and “life” and “death” have many meanings. New worlds, however, give rise to new problems. Desire, jealousy, greed, and lust for power are ever present. Many things have changed, but human nature is not one of them. That’s why society in the 22nd century needs Gamedecs – detectives who handle frauds, crimes, and conspiracies committed in virtual worlds. Child slavery in F2P games, the suicide of a professional player – cases like that are what they deal with on a daily basis. In the new Anshar Studios game, the player becomes one of these detectives.

Your choices will affect the game’s story, and the world will constantly adapt to your hero and their actions. And like in our reality, the consequences can be immediate, long-term, or hidden. Like in real life, it’s up to you to decide what to do with them. Deduction, Codex and Aspects game mechanics offer a variety of dialogue, and the paper-based RPG mechanics will give players more freedom with different solutions.

Anshar Studios will have an early build of the game premiering at Gamescom, and guests at PAX West in Seattle will have the chance to play the demo.
