Games set in cyberspace still aren’t so common these days, with maybe the classic Tron 2.0 being the best example of how to fuse shooting action and traversing a computer world. In this title, one tries to reach sapience by exploring the Mainframe which lies in ruins due to a powerful AI.
The Metroidvania gameplay is a perfect fit for the hacking culture, as one needs to unlock doors, circumvent forcefields and solve other puzzles which can be overcome by sheer firepower with weapons or more peaceful abilities, although boss fights don’t seem to rely on the latter solution. It’s all a bit obscure with obvious tech talk thrown around, but one wouldn’t expect it to be any other way.
The game is out now on PC, PS5 and Xbox One Series X/S with a 10% launch discount that lasts until tomorrow, August 26, 2021, at 2 PM UTC.
