Camouflaj has announced that a remastered version of Republique – its Stealth Survival hybrid genre Metroidvania exploration & 3D game – will hit the PC on February 26th. As the team noted, the PC version will pack better visuals, will be powered by Unity 5 engine, and redesigned game controls.
Republique Remastered has been rebuilt from the ground up in the Unity 5 engine, with enhancements including physics-based shading, real-time global illumination, and reflection probes.
Ryan Payton, Republique’s designer, said:
“Ever since we committed to doing a desktop version of Republique, we’ve been haunted by the task for delivering something truly special for PC players. When we got a glimpse at the next iteration of Unity we realized that this was the answer—beyond redesigning the game’s controls and UI for desktop, we’ve completely gutted all the game’s art, rebuilding everything using Unity 5’s cutting-edge graphical features. The result is something you have to see to believe.”
