There are dungeon crawlers and there are cyberpunk games, but there aren't that many cyberpunk dungeon crawlers. Conglomerate 451 is an upcoming game that seeks to fix that problem and it looks pretty neat! You'll be able to play it yourself pretty soon now that the Conglomerate 451 Early Access release date has been set for May 2019.
First announced earlier this year, Conglomerate 451 puts you in the shoes of a futuristic team of cyberpunk agents. The Senate of Conglomerate city has appointed you the CEO of a Special Agency tasked with cleaning up the streets. As with many cyberpunk stories, you're given an absurd, dangerous, and frankly immoral amount of power in order to get the job done.
The Steam Community news post that announces the Conglomerate 451 Early Access release date states that the devs are "100% confident" that they can get the game out in time on May 23, 2019. The game certainly looks stylish and embraces the cyberpunk genre, so much so that it has Japanese text in the title. (For the weebs out there, the text is simply「 コングロマリット」(Konguromaritto), or "conglomerate" in katakana.)
Throughout the course of the game, players will crawl through dungeons with their team of highly-advanced cyberpunk soldiers. Enhance your agents with cybernetic upgrades or hack your enemy's computers. Agents can accumulate all sorts of permanent trauma if they sustain an injury; if they get killed, they're gone for good.
If this game sounds like your kind of jam, you won't have to wait too long to get it: the Conglomerate Early Access release date is May 23, 2019. You can check out the new Conglomerate 451 Early Access Trailer below to see some of the gameplay in action. Add the game to your wishlist on Steam and get hyped to start hacking some Samsung Smart Fridges.
