Dex – story-driven action/stealth sidescrolling cyberpunk RPG – Gets A Kickstarter Campaign


Independent game development studio Dreadlocks announced today its new story-driven, side-scrolling RPG, Dex. The game is an action/stealth platformer in a cyberpunk setting and features an original approach to hacking and cyberspace, and Dreadlocks has launched a Kickstarter campaign for it.

According to its press release, the most innovative aspect of Dex, both from a story and a gameplay perspective, is that it takes place in two planes: physical reality and cyberspace (which is presented as a sort of augmented reality). Cyberspace is omnipresent – you can go there anytime for an alternate take on things – and it is up to you to choose how to overcome all obstacles and enemies. More than one solution can work – pure action, stealth, or cutting through intrusion countermeasures in cyberspace.

Dex will be distributed DRM-Free. So far, the confirmed platforms are PC (Windows, Linux), Mac, and OUYA.

The team aims to raise £14K in the next 29 days.
