You might remember Conglomerate 451, the fancy-looking procedurally generated cyberpunk dungeon crawler by Italian indie team RuneHeads that was released on Steam Early Access back in May. In the nine months that have passed the game has gotten plenty of updates and today it's ready for release. Here's its launch trailer and description:

Conglomerate 451 is a grid-based, dungeon crawling first-person RPG with roguelike elements set in a cyberpunk world.

You are the CEO of a Special Agency, instructed by the Senate of Conglomerate city to restore the order in sector 451, where corrupted corporations have established their turfs. Thanks to the last constitutional decree, you are allowed to create human clones. Build your own team, manipulate DNA, train your agents, equip them with high-end weapons, choose what cyberlimbs to implant, and send the squad to the field with only one goal: eradicate crime and restore order at any cost.
  • Manage your resources - Make use of your own personal R&D department to research advanced technology, unlocking new features, powers and options for progression
  • More than just body mods - In addition to upgrading weapon and armor proficiencies, augment your body with interchangeable cyber implants that completely change your agent’s skills and utility
  • Pain and Trauma system - Even the smallest wounds can have a lasting impact. By taking damage in combat, agents risk generating permanent Traumas that will follow them between missions
  • Story or Endless Mode - It's your choice. The Story Mode brings you in a world filled by events and a war with corrupted Corporations and their propaganda. In the Endless Mode, the game will create endless content for you
  • Perks and Mutations - Your agents can acquire special skills (Perks) and obtain Mutations
  • Drugs and Disorders - buy synthetic drugs to temporarily empower your agents, with the risk that they develop Mental Disorders
  • Procedural cyber dungeons - Experience the dungeon crawling you love, mixed with future technology as you take on procedurally-generated dungeons and missions
  • If you die in the game... - Each mission could be your last thanks to agent permadeath. Consider every move, because if an agent dies in battle, they will be lost forever
  • Hack the world - Enter cyberspace mid-mission and hack your way ahead of the competition to get crucial intel and give yourself the advantage
  • Collectables and Achievements - find collectibles around the dungeons and bring them to the Collector to discover the truth
The Codex community tends to avoid Early Access these days and has never been a big fan of procedural generation, so we have little idea of whether Conglomerate 451 is any good. If you want to give it a try, the game is available on Steam now for $20, with a 15% launch discount until next week. Apparently it'll also be available on GOG after the weekend.
