Some games are worth waiting for.
Yeah, okay. We want RÃ©publique NOW!
It tells the tale of futuristic totalitarianism, and in this, it feels scarily relevant today. Using a unique view mode, the user is compelled to help our heroine, Hope, to escape a secure facility. Influences from classics like 1984 are clearly seen in the storyline.
Developed over five years by industry veterans (Metal Gear Solid, Halo, F.E.A.R.), RÃ‰PUBLIQUE is a thrilling and topical stealth-action game that explores the perils of government surveillance in the Internet Age.
You receive a call from Hope, a woman trapped inside a mysterious totalitarian state. By hacking into the nation’s elaborate surveillance network and taking control, you guide Hope through a web of danger and deception across five thrilling episodes.
Have we said we’re excited?
We will be publishing our review based on a full pre-release version shortly; we also had the great opportunity to talk to Camouflaj chief Ryan Payton and Darkwind Media head Matthew Mikuszewski. The interview was a blast, and we look to get that out soon too.
