The game is coming to PC (via Steam), PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X (including Game Pass) on August 19th. The game features some tight platforming, excellent visuals, fast-paced combat, and an environmental physics-based hacking mechanic.
Recompile also has multiple endings that players will shape with their decisions. These small interactions repairing systems, hacking or destroying enemies, and exploring the deeper purpose of the mainframe, all contribute to the ending. Recompile also has a reactive soundtrack that adapts to the action.
The story is written by Faye Simms, and the game aims to explore themes of machine sentience and the nature of choice. Based on the Steam page, the entire narrative of the game takes place in 1 second of real-time.
