Dex Early Access Update Lives the High Life

Studio Dreadlocks’ Dex adds more to its growing cyberpunk dystopia.



Since its launch on Steam Early Access back in August, sidescrolling cyberpunk RPG Dex has been slowly and steadily gaining a following among fans of the genre; or any of the three genres listed, I suppose. After several months of enjoyment and patient waiting, fans finally get the first major update to Dex since its debut on the early access scene.

The new update is focused on the ritzy high-life keeping a choke-hold on the dystopian city in which Dex is set, a stark contrast to the critty and impoverished areas first showcased in the early access build. Headquarters of in-game corporations can now be explored, media in the city sports more advertisements and banners, and players can now explore the area of Harbor Prime. For more on Dex, check out our Kickstarter Watch, and the trailer below.

Jay Petrequin started writing at HeyPoorPlayer in the summer of 2012, but first got his start writing for It's Super Effective, a Pokemon podcast that happened to be a reflection of two of his biggest interests: pocket monsters, and making people listen to him say things.
