Whether you’ve been following its development for a while or you’re just hearing about it now, I bring good news. The latest game from In Other Waters developer Gareth Damian Martin is just around the corner. Say hello to Citizen Sleeper:
That excellent-looking trailer comes courtesy of the announcement of a launch date for the tabletop RPG-inspired sci-fi adventure, which is headed to a plethora of platforms including Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Nintendo Switch on May 5th, 2022. It’ll also be launching on Xbox Game Pass on this date.
“From the developer of In Other Waters, and featuring the stunning character art of Guillaume Singelin, Citizen Sleeper is a narrative RPG set on Erlin’s Eye, a ruined space station that is home to thousands of people trying to survive on the edges of an interstellar capitalist society.
You are a sleeper, a digitised human consciousness in an artificial body, owned by a corporation that wants you back. Thrust amongst the unfamiliar and colourful inhabitants of the Eye, you need to build friendships, earn your keep, and navigate the factions of this strange metropolis, if you hope to survive to see the next cycle.”
