Developer Camouflaj has announced today that its stealth adventure game République will launch on PC and Mac on February 26th as République Remastered.
The game has been rebuilt in Unity 5, the first commercial game to fully utilize the power of the game development tool. Camouflaj is using the engine’s various features to include physically based shading, real-time global illumination and reflection probes. The team has worked closely with Unity engineers for this project, with more details about the development of the PC/Mac version to be revealed prior to GDC 2015.
“Ever since we committed to doing a desktop version of République, we’ve been haunted by the task for delivering something truly special for PC players,” says Ryan Payton, designer at Camouflaj in an offical statement. “When we got a glimpse at the next iteration of Unity we realized that this was the answer — beyond redesigning the game’s controls and UI for desktop, we’ve completely gutted all the game’s art, rebuilding everything using Unity 5’s cutting-edge graphical features. The result is something you have to see to believe.”
République Remastered will be available on PC and Mac February 26th on Steam, GOG and the Humble Store. The Standard Edition of République Remastered will retail for $24.99, including the first three episodes of the game with access to the upcoming fourth and fifth episodes when they become available. The Deluxe Edition adds the complete soundtrack, a making of documentary and two game prototypes for $34.99.
