Conglomerate 451, a self-described cyberpunk dungeon-crawler, has left Early Access. Here are the details.

Conglomerate 451 embraces its grid-based, dungeon-crawling RPG roots, offering a variety of technologies to explore and upgrade. Roguelike elements add weight to the smallest decisions; for your agents to make it out alive, they must leverage everything from hacking and equippable agent skills, to the strategic use of tools developed by your personal R&D department.

Since Early Access, the developers have added 4 new areas, story mode, 25 new enemies, 10 new NPCs, corporation bosses, re-designed UI, and more roguelike elements such as imperfect character cloning and randomized perks.

Here are the key features:

  • Manage your resources - Make use of your own personal R&D department to research advanced technology, unlocking new features, powers, and options for progression
  • More than just body mods - In addition to upgrading weapon and armor proficiencies, augment your body with interchangeable cyber implants that completely change your agent’s skills and utility
  • Pain and Trauma system - Even the smallest wounds can have a lasting impact. By taking damage in combat, agents risk generating permanent Traumas that will follow them between missions
  • Story or Endless mode - It's your choice. The Story Mode brings you in a world filled by events and a war with corrupt Corporations and their propaganda. In the Endless Mode, the game will create endless content for you
  • Perks and mutations - Your agents can acquire special skills (Perks) and obtain Mutations
  • Drugs and disorders - Buy synthetic drugs to temporarily empower your agents, with the risk that they develop Mental Disorders
  • Procedural cyber dungeons - Experience the dungeon-crawling you love, mixed with future technology as you take on procedurally-generated dungeons and missions
  • If you die in the game... - Each mission could be your last thanks to agent permadeath. Consider every move, because if an agent dies in battle, they will be lost forever
  • Hack the world - Enter cyberspace mid-mission and hack your way ahead of the competition to get crucial intel and give yourself the advantage
  • Collectables and achievements - Find collectibles around the dungeons and bring them to the Collector to discover the truth
