Indie developer Dreadlocks have confirmed that their side-scrolling RPG Dex is coming to the Wii U eShop. The game's Kickstarter has met its stretch goal, ensuring that the game will see a release on Nintendo's console.
Dex takes place in the futuristic cyberpunk setting of Harbor Prime, in which an artificial intelligence attempts to take over the world. Here are a few brief excerpts from Kickstarter:
Explore the dark alleys of Harbor Prime and a host of diverse locations in both physical reality and the wild reaches of cyberspace. Discover the truth behind an enigmatic AI striving to reach the Singularity, a theoretical “event horizon” in which artificial intelligence will surpass human intelligence and all bets about the future will be off. How will you play your part in the story?
Rare melding of realism and creative vision: Realistic action, mature storyline, and complex character interactions meld with hand-drawn characters, animations, and locations, arcade-style melee combat, and an original conception of cyberspace.
The development team has revealed that the game's locations are hand-drawn, and there will be plenty of side missions in addition to the main storyline. For more details, click on the source link below. Trailer after the break.
