A cyberpunk, dungeon-crawler awaits.
Conglomerate 451

Conglomerate 451 left Early Access today. The official launch is available starting today for Steam, GOG, and other digital platforms. This launch includes a 15% discount from now through February 27. I say that the game is available "starting today" because so far it's available right now through Steam. Sadly, GOG won't get the game until February 24. It's just a few days, but it's certainly something to be made aware of. If you are viewing this news on the 24th or later, you can use this link to purchase from GOG.

Conglomerate 451 is developed by RuneHeads and published by 1C Entertainment. It's billed as a first-person cyberpunk dungeon-crawler. It will normally retail for $19.99 (USD) but it does have that launch week discount of 15%.

Since its Early Access launch, there have been multiple new features added to the game. This new content includes 4 new areas, a story mode, 25 new enemies, 10 new NPCs, corporation bosses, a redesigned UI, and some new roguelike elements like "Imperfect character cloning and randomized perks." A lot of these changes and additions were made due to the feedback the teams received from fans during the Early Access period.

Though a first-person game, Conglomerate 451 does include some old-school dungeon crawler mechanics. Players will have a wide array of technologies that they can make use of and upgrade throughout the game. In order to overcome the roguelike elements present in the game, you will have to hack and equip a number of "agent skills."

About the game:
Set in a city overrun with corrupt corporations, assemble a squad of cloned agents in a bid to restore order to sector 451. From altering your agents’ DNA and installing ability-granting neural implants to equipping them with powerful cyber limbs and literally hacking the world around you mid-conflict, you’ll need to take every advantage you can get. Not only will agents lost in battle lose all their previous progress, starting again as a fresh clone, but even basic wounds can have a lasting impact on them, evolving into permanent disadvantages.

Key Features:
  • Manage your resources - Make use of your own personal R&D department to research advanced technology, unlocking new features, powers, and options for progression
  • More than just body mods - In addition to upgrading weapon and armor proficiencies, augment your body with interchangeable cyber implants that completely change your agent’s skills and utility
  • Pain and Trauma system - Even the smallest wounds can have a lasting impact. By taking damage in combat, agents risk generating permanent Traumas that will follow them between missions
  • Story or Endless mode - It's your choice. The Story Mode brings you in a world filled by events and a war with corrupt Corporations and their propaganda. In the Endless Mode, the game will create endless content for you
  • Perks and mutations - Your agents can acquire special skills (Perks) and obtain Mutations
  • Drugs and disorders - Buy synthetic drugs to temporarily empower your agents, with the risk that they develop Mental Disorders
  • Procedural cyber dungeons - Experience the dungeon-crawling you love, mixed with future technology as you take on procedurally-generated dungeons and missions
  • If you die in the game... - Each mission could be your last thanks to agent permadeath. Consider every move, because if an agent dies in battle, they will be lost forever
  • Hack the world - Enter cyberspace mid-mission and hack your way ahead of the competition to get crucial intel and give yourself the advantage
  • Collectables and achievements - Find collectibles around the dungeons and bring them to the Collector to discover the truth
