Gamedec Coming to PlayStation 5

Having released the Definitive Edition of their cyberpunk detective RPG Gamedec a few months back, Anshar Studios is now partnering with Perp Games in order to bring the game to PlayStation 5 in early 2023. Already, you can wishlist it on the official PlayStation Store.

Here's a press release with some additional details:

London, UK, 12th December 2022 Anshar Studios and Perp Games are delighted to announce they are partnering to bring Gamedec Definitive Edition to console, early 2023.

Gamedec is a narrative-focused, non-combat story that puts players in the shoes of a digital detective diving deep into case files spread across the digital worlds of 22nd century Warsaw. How you respond during each case is as important as what you discover—your personality determines skills that unlock different opportunities and paths to different cases.

We are excited Gamedec has a chance to hit the major league. The topic of a potential Gamedec release on PlayStation has been floating around since the crowdfunding campaign back in 2020. The partnership with Perp Games allows us to reach out to the new gamers, who surely will appreciate the extensive branching path the game has. We are aware the roster of PlayStation titles also shows, people are demanding games with choices and consequences. We hope you will feel the weight of the decisions faced by the detectives in the 22nd Century." Jakub Kwinta – Head of Publishing, Anshar Publishing

“It is such a privilege to be partnering with Anshar Studios on the incredibly detailed game, Gamedec. Perp Games has always had Virtual Reality close to our hearts and this is why Gamedec is such a great game as it explores a futuristic world where people live out second lives in Virtual Reality. But this is vision of Virtual Reality that can go dark and sinister, very quickly.” Said Rob Edwards, CEO at Perp Games.


Gamedec is an authentic RPG experience where decisions are important and come with consequences. The world in which you live adapts to each decision you make. As the story progresses, your hero adapts as well. Just like in “real” life, the consequences of your choices can be immediate, long-term, or stay hidden, surfacing only when you least expect them. Whatever you decide, the game will remain neutral without judging your choices or suggesting “better” options. It is up to you to evaluate what you’ve done. Just remember that in this job, the game is always on.

Anshar Studios returns to the foundations of the RPG genre with their new game, built on mechanics such as Deduction, the Codex, and Aspects. These allow for complex conversations and interactions as players create or expose networks of conspiracies while discovering unusual relationships between virtual worlds. Gamedec’s pen-and-paper-based RPG mechanics give players the freedom to approach situations from multiple perspectives.


Your goal is to hunt down the criminals of virtual worlds – rich and spoiled businesspeople, corporations with plans to rewrite history. Are they acting alone, or are they mere puppets? What does a “happy ending” mean to you? To them? Each decision changes the world around you and your character’s personality. Some decisions will feel right, but others might be unexpected.


Welcome to Warsaw City in the 22nd century, where “real” is relative and “life” and “death” have many meanings. Real and virtual worlds have merged, giving rise to ancient vices: lust, sloth, pride, envy… That’s why everyone needs gamedecs – specialists who solve real problems in virtual worlds. Be it the Wild West or a prehistoric amusement park, these and many other worlds reveal our inclinations and weaknesses.


Use your wits to gather info from witnesses and suspects, get to the bottom of deceptive schemes, save lives, and investigate the extraordinary relationships between virtual worlds and their inhabitants. Gamedec emulates the nature of tabletop RPGs by focusing on character development through decision-making. As in classic tabletop RPGs, you’re given the freedom to approach situations from multiple angles rather than forcing a single solution – the choice is yours and yours alone.
