Cyberpunk RPG platformer Dex is free on GOG for a limited time

GOG.com is having a sale at the moment that is simply called The GOG Sale, with discounts on varied games like Noita (opens in new tab) (50% off), Invisible Inc. (opens in new tab) (75% off), A Plague Tale: Innocence (opens in new tab) (80% off), and, while we’re on the subject of cyberpunk, Deus Ex GOTY Edition (opens in new tab) (86% off, making it a steal at 97 cents). GOG’s also giving away Dex (opens in new tab), a sidescroller in the vein of Flashback, for free.

Dex was released in 2015 after being crowdfunded on Kickstarter (opens in new tab), where developers Dreadlocks Ltd said, “The levels and gameplay are non-linear and feature alternative solutions to each problem and obstacle. In other words, the game injects the poison (a problem, an enemy, an obstacle) and offers various antidotes (skills, abilities, equipment). The rest is up to you. In our vision, this is what makes an RPG a true Role Playing Game – the freedom to choose how to do things.” Dreadlocks Ltd also called it “reminiscent of Castlevania or Metroid titles with a smattering of the Deus Ex and Splinter Cell series.”
