Doublequote Studio has announced HeistGeist, a story-driven RPG set in a cyberpunk version of Central Europe. The project is scheduled for launch in 2023, and a To change version is confirmed.

In the game, you will take on the role of Alexandra, a resourceful thief who runs away after a job gone wrong. She seeks to escape corporate assassins as well as a disgruntled customer, and she will have to do what she can to stay alive as she prepares for the heist of her life. Although the game has an original post-cyberpunk world set in the year 2040, it is based on real locations.

In HeistGeist, you’ll have to “assemble a team of specialists, execute highly elaborate heists, fight in map-based battles, and hack into the most secure corporate systems.” You can build a deck, use cyberspace to hack secure servers in unique card-based puzzles, and more. It should also be noted that there is a cast of fully voiced characters.

You can take a look at what HeistGeist has to offer in the trailer we’ve included below.

HeistGeist will be sold digitally for Switch as an eShop download. We will keep you posted when we have additional information on the project.
