In a dystopian future, smiles can be few and far in between. That is, unless you have a robotic guardian who’s a bit on the clumsy side. Inspired by the likes of Studio Ghibli, Blade Runner and Monkey Island, ENCODYA arrives today on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

In ENCODYA, you play as Tina, who’s only companion is SAM-53, the aforementioned clumsy robot. Living together in a futuristic vision of Berlin where the corporations have won, it is fair to say the two of them aren’t exactly thriving. Tina is an orphan who has to scavenge through rubbish just to find her next meal.

This all changes one day though when she discovers her father left her with an important task. He’d put plans into motion to save the world from greyness, and it is now up to Tina and SAM-53 to finish his masterplan.

They will encounter many characters on their journey through over 100 locations in this point-and-click adventure. ENCODYA has a light tone, but a serious message underneath it all.

Available to download now, ENCODYA is on the Xbox Store priced at £24.99. There is a launch window discount though, knocking it down to £19.99 if you are quick enough. With its unusual art style and promising plot outline, ENCODYA is definitely a game to keep an eye out for. As is our review, which will be coming soon.
