Recompile is a visually stunning third person open world action platformer metroidvania where you take control of a semi-sapient program attempting to escape deletion.
Drawing inspiration from Axiom Verge, Hollow Knight, Ori and the Blind Forest and Zelda: Breath of the Wild, in Recompile you explore, fight and hack your way through a beautiful and deadly cyberworld called The Mainframe. You are a semi-sentient AI who must make their way through The Mainframe as they attempt to attain true sapience and avoid being deleted. As you explore you’ll unlock new abilities, solve puzzles and fight the various programs that are trying to delete you.
The prototype build takes around 10 minutes to play through and allows you to unlock a series of powerful new abilities, effectively turning you from Neo at the start of The Matrix into Neo at the start of The Matrix: Revolutions. While the full game will most likely feature a slower upgrade path, it’s great fun messing around with your various abilities – from slowing down time, using guns and air dashing to flying through the air.
It’s certainly worth keeping an eye on as even the prototype build of Recompile is very polished, with stunning visuals, fast paced gameplay and a nice variety of upgrades to play around with. It’ll be nice to delve deeper into the strange secrets this beautiful cyberworld holds.
