Launching out of Steam’s Early Access matrix next month, RuneHeads’ hack-’em-up features procedurally-generated levels, custom DNA editing and expendable clones, and a neon-retro 80s aesthetic – and, the studio promises, is also definitely, probably “not an emergent AI bent on expanding the limits of the human vessel for its own unknowable purposes”.
You are the CEO of a Special Agency, instructed by the Senate of Conglomerate city to restore the order in sector 451, where corrupted corporations have established their turfs. Thanks to the last constitutional decree, you are allowed to create human clones. Build your own team, manipulate DNA, train your agents, equip them with high-end weapons, choose what cyberlimbs to implant, and send the squad to the field with only one goal: eradicate crime and restore order at any cost.
The game’s Early Access user review are, at publish time, rated “positive”, with comparisons to cult-popular indies Legend of Grimrock and Darkest Dungeon. So, maybe not so much like Cyberpunk 2077, but close enough for now.
