Prague, Czech Republic, Thursday August 14: Czech game development team Dreadlocks launches Steam Early Access for its upcoming indie cyberpunk RPG Dex . The game is available for 15.99 USD with a 10% launch discount for the first week. Accompanying the release, the studio has also created a new trailer showing the currently implemented features. The game is being presented at Gamescom 2014 as part of the Indie MEGABOOTH Showcase (13th – 17th August, Hall 10.1.).

We are proud to announce that Dex, our 2D side-scrolling, open-world cyberpunk RPG with a focus on exploration and non-linear gameplay, currently in development, is now available on Steam Early Access ( http://store.steampowered.com/app/269650).
