Reading Time ~ 3 minutes

 

Developer So Romantic and publisher Hypetrain Digital are happy to announce their partnership to bring the near-future cyberpunk story Jack Move to Steam and Nintendo Switch early next year.

 

What is Jack Move?

Jack Move is an RPG featuring gritty cyberpunk storytelling, Japanese style turn-based battles and gorgeous Hi-Bit pixel art. But it’s not just your average JRPG — it’s a fresh take on the genre, aiming to squeeze the fun, depth and story of a traditionally long genre into a tighter 8-10 hour package.

 

“We have prepared a brand new demo of Jack Move that features a slums area and a dungeon where you will meet unique foes and defeat bosses with your hacking power! The demo takes just under an hour to play through and will be available throughout the Steam Summer Festival (June 16 – June 22) to the regular players.”

In Jack Move you will take on the role of Noa, a vigilante hacker who is thrust into a world of murder, kidnapping and dark research after her father goes missing, explore the dangerous cyberpunk world of Monocity-1 and takedown Monomind, the evil mega-corporation that controls it. In order to do so, you will have to fight your way through dungeons filled with all sorts of cyberpunk villany.

 

Key Features:

  • Turn-Based combat system. All the battles will take place in cyberspace, so you can take down your foes using a multitude of sweet hacking software. Customise the software of your Cyber Deck to switch roles mid-battle, balancing offence, defence and buffs.

  • Great variety of enemies. Street punks, gangsters, corporate militia, secret service agents, and horrific cyber-experiments-gone-wrong will all be battling against you!

  • Deep story. Play as Noa Solares, a sassy hacker out to save her father and the world.

  • Pixel art cyberpunk. Immerse yourself into this grim cyberpunk atmosphere depicted with pixel art inspired by retro RPGs and enhanced with modern techniques.

  • Diversity of the world and its secrets so loved by JRPG fans. Despite a relatively short gameplay length compared to the traditional JRPGs, Jack Move offers a lot of details and content that will please the lovers of this genre.
