> What would you do if your fears were hacked?_

<Breach removed, system rebooting>

>observer_ is set in a near future in a grim Cyberpunk version of Cracow, Poland. You play as Dan, a member of a special corporate-funded police unit called Observers, whose purpose is to hack and invade other people minds and memories. Having received a cryptic message from his estranged son, the hero delves into the seedy underbelly of the city, where only horror and madness awaits.

As an Observer you will need to use your augmentations to gather information, interrogate and hack into the twisted minds of criminals and victims alike. Explore the boundaries of humanity and face the consequences of stepping beyond our limits. Face the horrors of twisted minds, blurred by failing memories, entangled and mixed with your own fears.

Key Features

  • Observe and Report - You are Dan Lazarski, an elite neural detective known as an Observer, and part of a corporate-funded police unit whose purpose is to hack and invade suspects’ minds. In this future, anything you think, feel, or remember can be used against you in a court of law.
  • A Dark Dystopia - The year is 2084. If you somehow survived the Nanophage, odds are you were killed in the War. Those who live have turned to drugs, VR, neural implants— anything to distract themselves from this new reality. But they can’t hide from you.
  • Interactive Insanity - As you hack into the unstable minds of criminals and victims to look for clues, you will relive their darkest fears, forcing you to question your own reality -- and your sanity.
  • Take the Horror With You! - >observer_ for Nintendo Switch uses all of the unique features of the system, including full Joy-Con support, Touchscreen, and the option to play both in docked and in handheld modes.

>observer_ is currently available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, coming to Nintendo Switch on February 7, 2019 for $29.99 USD/€29.99.
