    Sounds like a less complex Disco Elysium but with standard 3d graphics

    Wow, what a year for RPGs this is.

    And once again a studio launches a Steam page for their game before they even tweet about it. That website is just a placeholder.

    Anshar (this), Fool's Theory (Seven), Event Horizon (Tower of Time, Dark Envoy), Polish isometric RPG supremacy. Motivated by the success of Divinity, facilitated by the success of CDPR?

    (I'm also looking forward to what Artificer, the successor of CreativeForge, is cooking.)

    It used to be that games didn't even get Steam pages until they were close to release, or sometimes even on the day of release. Now games are being announced by having their Steam pages appear all of a sudden, before there's a press release, a trailer on YouTube, a proper website, or even a tweet. That's funny to me.

    Hi guys, my name is Matt, and I'm a Community Manager at Anshar Studios.

    Your feedback is heartwarming! We're happy to see that you already dig this one up and yup - we're revealing this title today. We've got a lot to cover, a solid book series to adapt, and we want to underline this - adapt. It won't be a 1:1 title, so if you read the books, you won't be able to predict what's in the game. We're working closely with M. Przybyłek, who's the author of the books and he's very eager to discuss and consult our ideas. We're hyped, and we hope you will enjoy the game. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask, we'll gather the questions and answer them on a separate occasion.

    Well for me it looks more interesting than Cyberpunk 2077. Word Isometric from that trailer already put it above Cyberpunk in my book :)

    We're going to share more details soon. We're focusing on showing the game on the business area of Gamescom and then taking a hands-on demo to PAX West.

    No, it's an isometric RPG.

    Imagine someone is naughty in the virtual world, but it has an impact in the real world. And the other way around. In any case, you're the one whom people will speak to investigate the issue. It's not always welcome to talk to the press, and someone might be doing something that would ruin his or her career in a matter of seconds. You might try to help him or expose him - as we said, you're in charge of those decisions.

    Sounds relevant to what's going on today with social media and in MMOs with massive economies linked to RMT.
    Looking forward to seeing more.

    Like I said before, to get all the news, observe game on Steam [adding to wishlist would be great too! :)] or sign-up to our newsletter at www.gamedec.com. We're going to Gamescom to present the game to the media, and our next stop is PAX West, where anyone can try our gameplay demo.

    Cyberpunk Warsaw is a bit too much for me. I can understand dragons, magic, elves, even gods, but this is just too unrealistic.

    Gamedec stands for game detective and typical plot of the books has you going into the game and posing as NPC to solve crimes. And it's nothing like William Gibson writing nonsense about virtual space without any idea how even a calculator works. This guy is quite crafty and has extensive knowledge of gaming.

    This could be good, I'm looking forward to hearing more.

    Gamedec is story-driven and violent. We have a writer on board, and we intend to use it wisely.
