The unique blend of cyberpunk and horror in Observer: System Redux features Rutger Hauer in one of his last voice-acting roles as Dan Lazarski/Observer.
The year is 2084.
The future has turned out much darker than anyone could imagine. First, there was the Nanophage. A digital plague that killed thousands upon thousands of those who chose to augment their minds and bodies.
Then came the War, leaving both the West and the East decimated and shattered. With no one left to seize power, corporations took over and forged their own crooked empires.
You are a tool of corporate oppression. Feared and despised, you hack into the darkest corners of your suspects’ minds. You creep into their dreams, expose their fears, and extract whatever your investigation may require.
You are an Observer.
“When we announced Observer: System Redux for next-gen consoles, we had a huge response from our PC fans asking if the remaster would be coming to their platform of choice,” said Piotr Babieno, Bloober Team CEO. “We originally only planned to bring the game to consoles, but seeing the feedback we’ve heard from the community, we’re bringing the game to PC as well. As a way to thank our community, we’re putting this upgrade plan in place and looking into options to do the same on console if possible.”
You can download the aforementioned demo by heading over to the game’s Steam page. If you end up liking it enough to place a pre-order, you’ll be able to get discounts and bonuses for doing so. That said, Observer: System Redux is only expected to be $29.99 USD, and those who already own >Observer_ on Steam will receive 80% off if they choose to upgrade.
