Independent developer Camouflaj has announced they've remastered their stealth adventure République for its PC debut, having enjoyed critical acclaim for Android and iOS. PC gamers get an upgrade to the new Unity 5.
They boast theirs will be the first commercial title to "fully utilize" the newest Unity 5 engine. In the game we must assist a young woman escaping an Orwellian state using hacked surveillance.
"Ever since we committed to doing a desktop version of République, we’ve been haunted by the task for delivering something truly special for PC players,” says Ryan Payton, designer at Camouflaj.
“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.”
Actors Jennifer Hale and David Hayter lend their voices to notable characters in République.
République Remastered releases on PC February 26th and includes the first 3 episodes, and pre-purchases of the remaining two. A Deluxe Edition features the soundtrack and an hour-long documentary along with two early prototypes of the game.
