You will find below some information and a trailer about my game.

It would mean a lot to me if you could support a (very) small studio on the making by checking out my game on steam.
If you like it please consider adding the game to your wishlist, it helps a lot!

Here is a small prototype trailer, I hope you enjoy it (with sound)


Jax is waking up with no memory in a dark alley at the bottom of a multi-layered mega-city called Tribus. Follow Jax in his quest to discover how he lost his memory through a world where happiness, hope and love vanished.
Explore, infiltrate, fight, talk and hack your way through a rich cyberpunk world in this 2.5D action-RPG!

THE WORLD

Decades ago, a global pandemic struck the earth with a terrible virus. The effects of this virus are still considered worse than death itself: it suppressed all positive emotions of every human being. The world, lived one year without feeling anything other than despair, sadness and depression. Governments tried to find a cure but without success until one company found some treatment. It was not a vaccine; it was the only way to feel good again; To feel happiness for three days; It was a drug called AFFECTUS.

This expensive drug made the fortune of Affectus Corp, which is now, 200 years later, the world's largest company. Affectus Corp is still the only one that possesses the recipe of happiness, and it sells it at a too high price so that only the wealthiest can get some.

THE CITY

Over the centuries, generations of wealthy families built entirely new cities directly over the top of the old ones. It was for them a way to hide misery and forget the sadness by marginalizing the poorest. Now, Tribus has three levels, almost inaccessible from one another.
  • The first floor called Autem: This place is dark, dirty and crowded; Poverty and sadness are dominant. The sun never passes through the massives higher-level floors. It is always raining, but it's not natural rain, it's liquid leaking from the top... People living here, are the forgotten of the society, outlaws and workers in the factories that enrich companies like Affectus Corp.
  • The second floor called Eorum: This place is where lives the majority of the massive corporation's offices workers. People here earn enough to live correctly and happily but modestly in a modern environment where the sunlight can be seen regularly.
  • The higher floor called Tribus: where live the elite, the giant corporation's headquarters and where life is like a peaceful dream. It is a bright environment with cutting edge infrastructures, high tech facilities, open spaces and where the sun and fresh air are omnipresent.
To the world's eyes, this city is called Tribus. Eorum and Autem are never mentioned as if nobody wants to remember the past.

THE CHARACTERS

During his adventure, Jax will encounter many characters. Some will help, and some won't. You will be able to talk to them through interactive dialogues. But be careful, some of the choices you make will have consequences...

THE GAMEPLAY

Affectus is an immersive, non-linear, 2.5D sidescroller action-RPG. It means that you will be able to explore Tribus in a beautiful cyberpunk environment as you wish and start the primary story objectives when you want.
If you feel like an explorer, learning more about the world and the city. You could help people that you met along the way and accept secondary objectives. It will help Jax earn more credits and buying more equipment or implants.

In Affectus, there is no skill-tree. You are free to be a gunfighter, an infiltrator, or even sometimes as a diplomat:
  • Improve Jax's skills and chose your playstyle by installing augmentations; Implants which grant him new abilities for fights, hacking and infiltration.
  • Manage your inventory, buy weapons and equipment as you see fit to achieve Jax missions.
