Lose yourself in the dystopian world of New York, 2329; immortality comes at a price that someone has to pay. In this interactive noir story, lead the investigation using advanced technology, as Detective James Karra who risks it all in pursuit of a serial killer targeting the city’s elite.

Why do people keep trying to make artdeco retrofutrist cyberpunk happen?
Blade Runner

Which is one of the rare examples of that format being good, and even then it was ditched for a more standard cyberpunk aesthetic in the sequel.

It's like people who keep trying to make steampunk work. I have nothing against the aesthetic, but it's an uphill battle without the large audience that devs think it has.

For a brief moment I thought that maybe just maybe someone had announced a new No One Lives Forever game. But anyway, the title is a bit of a mouthful. "No one wants to die" just sounds better than "Nobody wants to die" in my mind.

Art deco retro-futurist cyberpunk also worked for Transistor (2014):

It's made by potatoes.



Wow, they have women in that studio who don't look like

1. men
2. purple haired whales

I can dig it.


While half of the development team did end up attending the controversial dinner, the remainder of the team protested the restaurant itself just outside. Complaints voiced by the protesters include the restaurant's décor; "walls plastered with guitars, a symbol of toxic masculinity and white appropriation", and the restaurant's menu, which includes products containing meat.

I do. After seeing this garbage trailer

I thought the trailer looked cool. But I’m not going to get excited for something I don’t even know the genre of. Is it an FPS, an RPG, a movie game, a cyberpunk mario?

Stop time and investigate stuff. There is only one "gameplay" screenshot.

It's basically an adventure game.

Could it be more clichéd ? The detective even looks like Harrison Ford / Indiana Jones.
Seen some gameplay GIFs someone pulled from the Steam page and it looks as if plays like a David Cage game w/ a first person perspective.

More like a traditional adventure game with detective puzzles.

They did not mention anything about C&C therefore I don't think there will be a branching story or choices.

Judging by the title, I thought this thread was gonna be about save scumming.
