Become A Sapient Program And Escape Deletion In Metroidvania Recompile


Phigames is planning an August release for their upcoming 3D Metroidvania Recompile. The game will have you exploring the ruins of a mainframe as a program fighting to attain true sapience and avoid permanent deletion.

“Witness the birth of sapient AI in this sprawling atmospheric hacking adventure.
Combining traditional Metroidvania mechanics with a dynamic branching narrative system, Recompile challenges players to explore, fight, hack and survive. Discover the many secrets beneath the ancient digital landscape, and prepare for system-wide reconfiguration.

The game’s entire narrative takes place within 1 second of real time.”

During Gamespot’s Play For All 2021, Recompile’s director and founder of Phigames, Phi Dinh, showed off some new gameplay and the updated release date:

Recompile will be available on PC (Steam), Playstation 5, and Xbox Series X.
