Publisher PLAYISM has announced that the Steam release for their game, Gnosia, will be pushed back to early 2022. The reason why the sci-fi social deduction RPG is being delayed is for additional fine-tuning.
The game was first announced for a release in 2021, but additional fine-tuning, with the aim of delivering the same feel of the critically acclaimed PlayStation Vita and Nintendo Switch versions, pushed the game back to early 2022.
“We offer our sincerest apologies to all of you who have been looking forward to playing Gnosia on PC and we will make a separate announcement when the final release date is fixed.” stated Playism.
About the game (from the game’s Steam page)
Gnosia is a Sci-Fi Social Deduction RPG in which you will engage in discussion with a variety of unique characters, with the aim of identifying the Gnosia among the group.
Players will have to use what information they can gather during the discussions to ascertain whom they think is Gnosia and then vote to put them into cold sleep. As you progress, your abilities will improve – but so will those of the crew.
As the numbers of crew members, Gnosia, and various “roles” increase, it will become increasingly difficult to determine who is telling the truth. Work in collaboration with or against other crew members to ensure your survival until the end.
Repeatedly play through “loops”, triggering special events to unravel mysteries in a uniquely original narrative. Certain events will unlock new commands for you to use during discussions.
Step into a variety of roles to develop different character builds. Your stats will determine how effectively you can sway the group’s opinion or lie, and will also affect your likelihood of being selected for cold sleep.
Engage with an engrossing and eclectic cast of characters and experience randomly triggered events, each one unique to its subject. Character events will reveal information about your crewmates in the form of special “Notes”.
Gnosia will now release on early 2022 at the cost of $24.99 on PC. (via Steam)
