Conglomerate 451 to release on Steam Early Access next week
17 May, 2019
The first-person, grid-based dungeon crawler Conglomerate 451 will bring its dark, cyberpunk world to Steam Early Access within a week. It’ll be on PC only.
1C Entertainment has announced that it is publishing Conglomerate 451 onto Steam Early Access next week. The launch will be on 23rd May, exclusively for Windows PCs.
Conglomerate 451 hearkens back to first-person, grid-based dungeon crawlers of yore, but swaps out the more common fantasy theme for a cyberpunk sci-fi world full of technological wizardry. There’s also some roguelike and procedural generation elements thrown in. All in all, it should be a welcome change for fans of games like Legend of Grimrock or Vaporum.
Check out the game’s plot:
You are the CEO of a Special Agency, instructed by the Senate of Conglomerate city to restore the order in sector 451, where corrupted corporations have established their turfs. Thanks to the last constitutional decree, you are allowed to create human clones. Build your own team, manipulate DNA, train your agents, equip them with high-end weapons, choose what cyberlimbs to implant, and send the squad to the field with only one goal: eradicate crime and restore order at any cost.
And here’s a new trailer for the game:
Conglomerate 451 is expected to stay in Early Access for some 6-8 months, with new updates planned for release every 2 months.
It’s being developed by Italian outfit RuneHeads, whose previous title was Fall of Light. As with that game, Conglomerate 451 will be published by 1C Entertainment.
There doesn’t seem to be an official website for the game just yet, but you can check the game out at Steam over here.
