    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]

    Despite being a little rough around the edges, Anshar Studios' first RPG attempt in the cyberpunk world of Gamedec manages to hold its own against even AAA ventures in the genre.

    If you've dreamed of a game where you will become a noir detective in the cyberpunk world, Gamedec is just for you. Interrogating suspects, searching for evidence, deducing and difficult decisions make from this title a detective nirvana that no fan of the genre should miss. The only flaw in the beauty is the shallow sound design and the overall deafness of the game world.
  4. Although Gamedec offers a beautiful detective adventure, it cannot fully assess the great potential it contains.

    Embellished with pleasant graphics, the title of Anshar Studios offers an interesting story and a considerable amount of text. Unfortunately, all those nuances that would have made it more interesting are missing, such as a more intelligible progression system and the presence of secondary activities disconnected from the dialogues which instead represent the only backbone of the game.

    Gamedec certainly doesn’t lack ambition. Its setting is well thought-out and provides a rich tapestry to fall back on when the player’s actual interactions with the world come up a little wanting. While its aesthetics are great, a bit more attention was needed in the audio department, as music is generally only adequate and there are entire sections devoid of music altogether. Voice-overs are likewise notably absent. The all-important investigations struggle to gel during the game’s first half, and while the narrative eventually picks up a bit more, it’s clear there were some missed opportunities here. Overall, Gamedec presents a rich world that would be worth revisiting again, though perhaps with an extra layer of polish needed for its narrative.

    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.

    Gamedec me recuerda mucho a Disco Elysium con su mezcla de rol, juego de decisiones e investigación. Aunque en este caso, la historia tieneGamedec me recuerda mucho a Disco Elysium con su mezcla de rol, juego de decisiones e investigación. Aunque en este caso, la historia tiene que ver con videojuegos, mundos virtuales y esas cosas, en lugar de asesinatos políticos. Personalmente creo que es una muy buena historia que, además, está contada de un modo muy interesante al permitirte jugar e interaccionar con los distintos juegos y sus distintas mecánicas. Aunque, ocasionalmente, el juego no toma en cuenta correctamente las decisiones que has tomado en algunos puntos, y el final que obtienes depende de una serie de decisiones que no tienen aparentemente relación con el final, de modo que llegas a un desenlace u otro según una serie de opciones que has tomado sin saber que eran requisitos para las decisiones que querías tomar. El sistema de desarrollo del personaje se queda un pelín escaso para mi gusto, pero a cambio las opciones de habilidades que hay sí que se sienten como que impactan de lleno en la jugabilidad y la historia, lo cual es importante.

    Gráficamente el juego está bastante bien, con una estética muy variada y bien recreada para cada uno de sus entornos y personajes. El sonido también está bastante bien, aunque le falta doblaje de las voces. Quitando los errores de guión mencionados antes, solo un par de veces me encontré con bugs, pero es cierto que los controles con el teclado no responden todo lo bien que deberían.

    El resultado de todo ello es, sin duda, un juego que vale mucho la pena. Un 8.

    Das Konzept ist wirklich klasse!

    Man ist in dem Spiel als Spieledetektiv tätig und taucht in die virtuellen Welten der einzelnen Games ein in denen man dann ermittelt, aber auch das Spiel spielt in dem man sich befindet. Gerade diese Möglichkeit bzw. Mischung macht den Charme des Spiels aus, einfach echt überlegt und umgesetzt!

    Nach dem All-Language Patch endlich auch komplett problemlos spielbar!

It is a bit lacking in the presentationI am enjoying and did find it quite similar to Disco Elysium, that is how I got to find it. It is a bit lacking in the presentation department, cool moments should be more emphasized, but they are there, so for me this is a great experience. The deduction system could do with a complete overhaul, the way it is it makes me feel I'm missing out and doing wrong choices when in fact this game is mostly about self-expression. As the game goes on, the linearity begins to weigh it down Expand

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
