Publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer Chaosmonger Studio are pleased to announce that their Bladerunner-meets-Full Throttle point-and-click adventure game, ENCODYA, is now available on Steam and GOG. Not only that, but in classic Assemble Entertainment fashion, a special “Save the World” edition is also available, which comes with the official artbook, soundtrack, several “making-of” videos, and gorgeous high definition wallpapers. In keeping with the game’s theme, for every “Save the World” edition sold, Assemble will donate 10% of the proceeds to the children’s charity Plan International, an organization that works to advance children’s rights and equality for girls worldwide.
ENCODYA follows in the footsteps of beloved titles like Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle, but with a hefty dose of dystopian cyberpunk stylings. Join the plucky ragamuffin Tina and her best pal, an imposing mass of metal and wiring named SAM-53, as they navigate the gritty streets of Neo-Berlin. Tina and SAM-53 must use their wits to help fix a society where mankind has become hopelessly addicted to the technology that allows them to ignore the plight of their city and waste their days in a virtual world.
“It’s been a long journey with plenty of blood, sweat, and tears to get ENCODYA into the hands of players,” said Nicola Piovesan, Founder of Chaosmonger Studio. “We here at Chaosmonger poured our hearts and souls into this project and can’t wait to see people join Tina and SAM-53 on their quest to save Neo Berlin.”
ENCODYA has been painstakingly and lovingly crafted from the ground up, including a completely original soundtrack — right down to the ad jingles found across Neo Berlin — along with 35 unique and distinctive NPCs and a whopping 4,000+ lines of dialogue. A cute and colorful art design with a hint of something more sinister reflects the progress, or lack thereof, of a city under siege from rampant capitalism and an overreliance on technology. Explore a beautifully realized world, solve puzzles, and help Tina and SAM-53 bring life and love back into the city they call home.
Key Features of ENCODYA Include:
- Bring Your Michelin Guide: Neo Berlin is a big city with a lot to see, and players can explore more than 100 unique locations.
- Thank You, Please Visit Us Again: Enjoyed your time exploring the city and want to make a return trip? Encodya features randomly generated puzzle solutions to add more value to multiple playthroughs.
- Get Chatty with a Cast of Crazy Characters: During their journey, Tina and SAM-53 will meet all sorts of interesting people (and robots), and with 4,000 lines of dialogue to experience, they’ll be spending plenty of time getting to know them.
- Keep Your Eyes Peeled: In keeping with the games by which it was inspired, ENCODYA is packed to the brim with tiny details, easter eggs, and a fully-fleshed out world to explore.
ENCODYA is available now on Windows PC, Mac, and Linux platforms via Steam, GOG and ENCODYA.com on 26th January, 2021, for £21.99 for the standard edition, and £31.99 for the ‘Save the World Edition’. Both can be purchased now with a limited time 20% discount.
