Dex, the cyberpunk side scrolling action RPG, is now available on the PlayStation Vita. Originally released for PC in 2015, it was ported to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One earlier this year. Cross buy is supported for the PlayStation 4 and Vita versions. Drawing inspiration from cyberpunk novels written by the likes of William Gibson, Dex combines old school platforming with modern RPG elements. A synopsis of Dex has been provided by the publisher.
“Take on the role of Dex, being chased by corporate mercs for an undisclosed reason. With nowhere to go, Dex is forced to question her own existence while dodging vicious attackers across a dreary city of the future. However, Dex is not alone: A trio of “hacktivists” — the mysterious Raycast, protective Decker, and light-minded Tony — are ready and willing to help Dex in her quest.
The streets of Harbor Prime offer countless opportunities to fight against dangerous gangs, expose corporate secrets, dive into the depths of cyberspace, develop Dex’s skills and much more. The outskirts of the city are plagued by crime, poverty and filth. Out there, every day presents a new struggle for survival. The wealthier districts are full of skyscrapers and bustling businesses. Yet beneath the sleek exterior, another war is going on, with powerful corporations constantly at each other’s throats. Woe to those who get caught in the crossfire!”
