If you’re a sci-fi fan, we have an upcoming indie game just for you. It is called Respawn, and it is inspired by some classic sci-fi movies and novels, including 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Blade Runner, The Matrix, Stanislaw Lem, and Isaak Asimov.
“Respawn is a roguelike game for the fans of Hard sci-fi.” called the developer Bugbomb. The release date of Respawn has not been announced yet by the publisher Gazebo, but the wishlist is available on Steam. You can also try the game with its demo version.
Respawn Story and Gameplay
Respawn offers you the roguelike game that you missed with a story that is not based on magic nor is set in a fantasy setting. You will play as Kane Hartman in the Respawn game. One day, you wake up in a twisted maze that is full of hostile robots. Due to the climate crisis, civilization does not exist anymore. Are you asking what happens to human spices? Well, it is a bit complicated. Only a few thousand people are left of the human race. They are all connected in a huge computer cluster, which uses the processing power of the human brain.
There is also a new ruler of the Earth named Quincy, an artificial intelligence running on the cluster. This crazy machine decides to find out the source of the human will to survive. And you are his test subject.
If you are asking why the game’s name is Respawn, let us tell you our predictions. The game offers gameplay that is full of action. You will encounter a lot of different kinds of enemies who demand you adapt. And these enemies will be tough to beat, and they will have the advantage of numerical superiority. This is why you will die a lot. However, the game says you will respawn stronger and advance further.
The game is set in an abandoned mega factory that was used to produce household robots. You will encounter enemy robots there. You have to reach the heart of this facility to end this madness.
Upgrade Options and Weapons in Respawn
If you wonder what you are going to use when you fight with these robots, here is the answer. This is a sci-fi game, and you are in a mega robot production factory. You can upgrade yourself. There is a genetic augmentation technology in the game. By using this technology, you can acquire new abilities, such as greater speed and stronger hits. You are also not going to fight with bare hands. There are some weapons and tools that you can use, like a high-amperage baton, a whip, and a set of blades.
All in all, Respawn offers a great roguelike experience in a sci-fi future where the human race ends with a climate crisis. The game will be a single-player game. It would be great to fight with a friend in a co-op mode. The developers are also planning to release the game for console platforms, but we will see it on PCs first.
