Dex is a multiple-genre 2D video game that focuses on non-linear, explorative gameplay inspired by the cyberpunk novels written by William Gibson and other cyberpunk authors. It’s currently available on Steam and is slated to make its way to Sony’s PS4 and PS Vita along with Microsoft’s Xbox One and Nintendo’s Wii U.
In Dex’s world, the outskirts of its city are plagued by filth, poverty, and crime while the wealthier districts are full of bustling businesses and towering skyscrapers. Even if doesn’t look so frightening, it harbors a secret: a war going on beneath its depths. In it, powerful corporations are trying to one-up each other in order to control more of the city.
In this open-world game, you will be able to influence the fate of everyone you meet. Every time you fight against a dangerous gang or expose corporate secrets, you alter the way things progress in the game.
Despite sounding like an open-world 3D game, Dex is actually a side-scrolling platform game with RPG elements. At the same time, every quest can be completed in multiple ways, offering players many ways to get through challenges.
