Spanish publisher Badland Indie has confirmed they’re bringing the cyberpunk thriller-adventure game Dex to consoles.

The Dreadlocks studio-developed game was originally released on PC back in May of last year, and has garnered positive reception.

The game will now release across PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Q1 of this year, followed by a PS Vita release sometime thereafter.

Here are the game’s key features:

  • Rare melding of realism and creative vision: Realistic action, mature storyline, and complex character interactions meld with hand-drawn characters, animations, and locations, arcade-style melee combat, and an original conception of cyberspace.
  • Multiple solutions to problems: Operate in cyberspace or normal reality. Overcome obstacles using skills, weapons, special equipment…
  • Meaningful character progression choices: Will you be a silent assassin, a hacker, or a straightforward gunfighter? Improve your character and gear to unlock gameplay-changing upgrades that reinforce and customize your gameplay style.
  • Unique hacking mechanic: Transfer your consciousness to your avatar, overcome intrusion countermeasures, take action, and then return back to your body in a fraction of a real-time second to see the results – deactivated turrets, overloaded devices, enemies with crippled implants…
  • Neo-cyberpunk: Story deeply inspired by the cyberpunk novels of William Gibson and other classical cyberpunk authors, flavored with a contemporary concept of augmented reality.
  • Rich game world and mindful level design: Visit diverse locations in Harbor Prime, a futuristic city complete with luxurious skyscrapers, run-down shantytowns, and seedy red-light districts. Take part in street brawls, steal corporate data, overcome environmental hazards, and, of course, stay alive – no easy task.
  • Full voice acting: Interactive dialogues using hand-drawn sprite animations, fully voice-acted by professional actors.

    Sounds like you forgot to level your ranged skill, you need level 4 to be able to use them.

    Has anyone actually completed the game? It seems all reviews or footage I find are of the first few hours. Either I can’t find any footage of the later game or it all looks the same. Have you really seen everything there is to see after the first few hours and the rest is just leveling up and getting better gear? Is there plenty of story and is it worth it?

    Didn’t even know this was a thing honestly. I love cyberpunk but is it side-scrolling Castlevania style or is it more like Mark of the Ninja?

    Anybody know how long the game is?

    Steam wishlisted for now I guess.
