Back in June, a gentleman by the name of Shodanon joined our forum to tell us about an upcoming game he's been working on called Peripeteia. It's a first person RPG very obviously inspired by the original Deus Ex and set in an alternate history cyberpunk Poland. Also, it's got anime girls, because why not. Shodanon and his team (who call themselves Ninth Exodus) have been working on the game for a while and yesterday they released its first public demo, which is a good excuse to finally post about it. Here's the latest trailer and description from the game's Steam page:



Peripeteia is an upcoming first-person game mixing shooter, stealth and RPG mechanics, placing it within the elusive and ephemeral "immersive sim" genre, heavily inspired by the greats such as Deus Ex, expanding upon the formula with original ideas and an unexplored setting.

The story takes place in an alternate history cyberpunk Poland, in a post-soviet city full of corruption and opportunity, where nations, powerful factions and ideologies clash and where cybernetic supersoldiers look for mercenary work. You play as one of them, a young woman named Marie.

Within Peripeteia can be seen the dream of the immersive simulator genre, long laid to rest by an industry which had forgotten it. In this game you will be forced to use your wits, resourcefulness, and raw violent nature to complete tasks you may not even understand. Logic and a shrewd cunning mind will win you the day in this interactive and highly adaptive world. Well, unless you have a pistol and ammo for it.

Have you found yourself hungering for the raw sense of survival, accomplishment, and player choice long absent from this dark and belied industry? Then consider joining us in the lights of the Eastern Night with Peripeteia.
The Peripeteia demo is only available on itch.io for now and will be released on Steam at a later date. It's apparently a bit janky as you might expect, but has some promising elements. For further details about the game, you may also wish to check out its official website.
