    Here’s a proof that it’s possible to create an engaging game based mainly on dialogues (comparisons to Disco Elysium work in Gamedec’s favor, but there’s a lot less text to read here). Gamedec’s world is original and immersive, the investigations are interesting, the detective’s unique skill system works great and the deduction mechanic is brilliant. [11/2021, p.54]

    The deduction mechanic reminds me a little bit of L.A. Noire but perhaps a bit more forgiving here. I found it to be a fun world to jump into and I can only imagine what it would be like as a real VR game. For the variety of game worlds you get to play in (to an extent)… it’s pretty good value for money and if you enjoy a good detective story and the chance to solve problems via deductions, this should be right up your dark alley.

    There’s a lot in Gamedec that’s praiseworthy. I love how the game constantly evolves based on decisions made throughout it, and the story itself developed into something truly memorable as it progressed. Those who want to play an engaging cyberpunk sci-fi RPG with an emphasis on decision-making may very well want to try Gamedec out, especially now that it is updated and more polished.

    Gamedec has a lot of interesting ideas and mechanics, and its hardboiled- detective-in-the-22nd-century story is a great premise. Either the developers had ambitions beyond their ability to deliver, or maybe the game just needs a few more passes with the random orbital sander to smooth down the rough edges, but in its present state Gamedec’s flaws definitely detract from an otherwise intriguing experience.

    Gamedec is a fascinating detective RPG where even a bad call can lead to interesting outcomes. The setting is very original, a blend of our reality and a virtual world. But the story loses its breath somewhere along the way which is a real shame.

    I want to fully endorse Gamedec, and up to a certain point I do, but I would be remiss if I didn't mention the radical shift in the game's focus. Up until then the investigations are mysterious and fun, telling a legitimately interesting tale. After it the game feels like it goes into hyperdrive, not stopping until the credits roll. If this universe is ever revisited, I would hope there would be more investigative stories and less weird color-coded mazes. As it stands then, Gamedec is best described as a promising title with uneven execution.

    Even with some refreshing concepts related to investigations, Gamedec stumbles owing to uninteresting plot points, bland characterization, unclear systems, and pesky bugs.

    I've always wanted a detective game this detailed. The game looks extremely beautiful with every detail, I wish the game time was longer.

I was waiting for this game since first demo, that was dropped in steam. After full walktrough i must say that its a solid 8, but only because of 2 reasons. First one is length. This story is pretty short (i will not go to spoilers), and the second is endings. They're kinda empty, because whatever you get, you will only see what decisions you made trough the game. so that was kinda disappointing.. 8/10 and its well deserved with awesome dialogues, Easter eggs, and characters Expand

It's a very interesting detective game in a very interesting setting. It immersed me deeply in the lore. Also, the art is really beautiful. The only con I see is the game time, if you don't take your time to read the lore you could easily finish the game in 10 hours. Expand

    Не смог поиграть из-за отсутствия управления с геймпада. Игра его ощущает только при пропуске начальных заставок. Но уже начиная с менюНе смог поиграть из-за отсутствия управления с геймпада. Игра его ощущает только при пропуске начальных заставок. Но уже начиная с меню работает только мышь и клавиатура. Игра геймпад от Xbox для ПК вообще игнорирует. Увы. Потому и оценка 0 баллов. Как только будет это исправлено, изменю оценку. В 2021 году выпускать игру без нормальной поддержки контроллеров просто недоразумение. Хотя еще в Сентябре обещали ее сделать. Видимо не сделали. Версия игры последняя. Expand
