We now have a Sunday Gold release date. The stylish point-and-click RPG hybrid is launching for PC via Steam this September, and if you're on the fence about playing it, there's also a free prologue available to check out via Steam right now. 

When is the Sunday Gold release date?

You'll be able to stalk the streets of future London before you know it, as the Sunday Gold release date is September 13th, putting it at just over a month away. When the game launches, it'll take you to London in the 2070s, where crime is high, the rich are getting richer, and the people are crying out for someone to even the score and bring them justice. If you're a fan of games like the Brexit paperwork thriller Not Tonight (or, indeed, its America-set sequel) or the woozy RPG Disco Elysium, then you should find plenty to love in Sunday Gold.

Sunday Gold presents an intriguing mix of genres.

Perhaps the most exciting thing about Sunday Gold is its innovative mix of genres. On its face, it's a point-and-click game with plenty of inventory puzzles and logic challenges. However, once you encounter a problem you can't solve with your intellect, then you'll have to engage in turn-based RPG combat, using the skills and strengths of your party to outwit and defeat your opponents. There's even a Darkest Dungeon-style mechanic whereby party members will start to break down if situations get too stressful for them, although you can use consumable items or "leadership abilities" to bring them around. Let's hope Sunday Gold takes inspiration from the Darkest Dungeon videogame and not from its ill-fated board game adaptation.

Sunday Gold makes its way to PC via Steam on September 13th. You can also check out the free playable prologue right now, so if this game looks like your sort of thing, make sure to give that a go so you can know for sure. Hey, it's free, so what have you got to lose, right?
