Independent studio Camouflaj
has announced that its stealth adventure République Remastered
is out now for PC and Mac via Steam, GOG, and Humble Store. Rebuilt from the ground up in Unity 5 by industry veterans behind AAA games including Halo 4 and Metal Gear Solid 4, République Remastered includes Episode 1: Exordium, Episode 2: Metamorphosis, and Episode 3: Ones and Zeroes in both Standard and Deluxe Editions.
In République Remastered, players assist Hope, a desperate young woman struggling to escape from a secret, Orwellian state. Communicating using a stolen phone, Hope contacts the player and asks them to hack into the nation's surveillance system, assume control, and guide her out of the clutches of the omnipresent Overseer. Literary works such as 1984 and Brave New World, and current geopolitical events including global surveillance and Internet censorship serve as key sources of inspiration for both the narrative and the stealth-survival gameplay. Players expand their control over surveillance cameras and other network-enabled devices, growing into an active threat to the Overseer and his grip over his shadowy nation.
