Who said dystopian fantasies had to be dark and gloomy? Based on the award-winning short film Robot Will Protect You, developer Chaosmonger Studio’s Encodya takes the creativity of a Ghibli film and mashes it with the atmosphere of Blade Runner to create a point-and-click adventure in the vein of Monkey Island.
From publisher Assemble Entertainment:
Neo Berlin 2062. Tina – a nine-year-old orphan – lives with SAM-53 – her big clumsy robot guardian – in a rooftop makeshift shelter in Neo-Berlin, a dark megalopolis controlled by corporations. Tina is an urban jungle kid who has learned to live alone, scavenging from city dumpsters and eking out a living from scraps. Her funny robot is always with her, programmed to protect her no matter what.
One day, the little girl discovers that her father left her an important mission: to finish his plan to save the world from grayness! Tina and SAM embark on an incredible adventure across different realities full of bizarre robotic creatures and grotesque human beings. Through puzzles and exciting dialogues, they’ll find out the true meaning of being alive.
- Entirely Original Soundtrack and Audio: Not only will players enjoy a unique, custom soundtrack, but everything from the character dialogue to the advertising jingles are self-produced audio tracks, not simply sound bites from an audio-library
- A Robust Script: To really bring the world of Encodya to life, more than 4,000 lines of dialogue provide an engaging and immersive cinematic experience
- This Puzzle Was Different Last Time…: Puzzle randomization adds replay value and a fresh challenge for players looking to enjoy multiple trips to Neo-Berlin
- A Full Cast of Characters: With 34 distinct NPCs, the dystopian world of Neo-Berlin is brought to life with a whole host of fully-realized individuals
Encodya comes to PC and Mac on Jan. 26, 2021, and retails for $24.99 USD.
