Not $50,000, not $100,000, but almost three times as much as the initial goal. Gamedec has started its final Kickstarter lap, and with the campaign ending in 4 days, it’s already another crowdfunding hit from Poland.
One final push from gamers is still needed to make sure partial voice overs will be added to the game. In the end, a great detective always looks for as many clues as possible. A huge number of them are given by suspects themselves, and those can be an expression, stance, or just the tone of their voice. That is why Anshar Studios’ developers decided to give each of their non-playable characters a voice!
Reaching the stretch goal of $170,000 will unlock a partially voiced game. Each NPC will have a set of lines. While not all dialogs will be recorded, the developers want to give gamers an insight into the nature of NPCs with whom they’ll be interacting with. However, it will of course still leave room for imagination to paint the interaction the way players feel it should be. But just like in old school RPGs, sometimes it only takes a few sentences, a few idiosyncrasies, to completely understand what kind of person you are dealing with.
Gamedec is an authentic RPG experience where every decision is important and comes with consequences. The world you live in always adapts to the decisions you make. As the story progresses, your hero adapts as well. Just like in “real” life, the consequences of your choices can be immediate, long-term, or stay hidden, surfacing only when you least expect it. Whatever you decide, the game will remain neutral, neither judging your choices nor suggesting “better” options. It’s up to you to evaluate what you’ve done, bearing in mind that you are the sum of your choices.
Anshar Studios returns to the foundations of the RPG genre. Their new game is built on mechanics like Deduction, a Codex, and Aspects. These allow for complex conversations and interactions as players create or expose networks of conspiracies while discovering unusual relationships between virtual worlds. Gamedec’s pen-and-paper based RPG mechanics give players the freedom to approach situations from multiple perspectives.
YOU ARE THE SUM OF YOUR CHOICES
Your goal is to hunt down the criminals of virtual worlds. Rich and spoiled businesspeople, parents who want better lives for their children, or corporations with plans to rewrite history. Are they acting alone, or are they mere puppets? What does a “happy ending” mean to you? To them? Each decision changes the world around you and your character’s personality. Some decisions will feel right, but others can be unexpected.
EXPLORE THE CYBERPUNK OF THE XXII CENTURY
Welcome to Warsaw City in the XXII century, where “real” is relative and “life” and “death” have many meanings. Real and virtual worlds have merged, giving rise to ancient vices: lust, sloth, pride, envy… That’s why everyone needs gamedecs – specialists who solve real problems in virtual worlds. Whether it’s the Wild West or a prehistoric amusement park, these and many other worlds reveal our inclinations and weaknesses.
EXPERIENCE THE ESSENCE OF ROLE-PLAYING
Use your wits to gather info from witnesses and suspects, get to the bottom of deceptive schemes, save lives, and investigate the extraordinary relationships between virtual worlds and their inhabitants. Gamedec emulates the nature of tabletop RPGs by focusing on character development through decision making. Like in classic tabletop RPGs, you’re given the freedom to approach situations from multiple angles rather than forcing a single solution – the choice is yours and yours alone.
