Foreclosed manages to hit a bunch of cyberpunk buzzword beats in its one-minute trailer: "jacking in", "blockchain", guns that respond to your ID, and "a system where you're in debt before you're even born".
Sounding a lot like The Matrix, and looking a bit like a neon Alan Moore graphic novel, Foreclosed is a narrative-driven shooter with an RPG-like skill tree, as well as a cool "symbiotic pistol" that you can control with telekinesis.
You play as Evan Kapnos, who evidently did something bad enough that he has been "foreclosed": stripped of his existence within the system, and in danger of having even more taken away from him if he does not escape from the city that sees him as a nonentity. Unsurprisingly - because this is cyberpunk, after all - his escape will require shooting a lot of people.
Foreclosed is heading to Switch this Summer, with a physical release to follow later this year.
Looks like it's got potential - I'm very much interested. I'll keep an eye out for more info. Hopefully gameplay ends up as pleasing as the aesthetic!
@everynowandben Looks interesting, and i'm a big fan of Cyberpunk-style visuals too. Certainly can't be worse than 2077.
Be keeping an eye on this.
Very interested in this, while the style/setting may be derivative, I'm a sucker for anything remotely similar to Blade Runner. Hopefully it's a project made with passion & enthusiasm and not just a cash grab for suckers like me. I'm sure I'll be getting this if it reviews well.
A spiritual successor to XIII perhaps?
Looks super interesting but MAAAN that aiming system looks insanely hard to use.
This looks pretty cool, but Merge Games doesn't have the best track record for Switch ports (at least as far as I recall) so I'm only cautiously optimistic.
These types of games are exactly why I care more about Indie releases than I do about "AAA" ones.
