Liberated gameplay video shows what’s it like to play a comic book

Publisher Walkabout Games have released nine minutes of Liberated gameplay.

In this video, we see the main character, Barry Edwards, driving through the tech-noir city as he attempts to lose the cops and reach the Liberated’s headquarters. We later get to see some action, stealth, and lots of dialogue.

However, the main reason Walkabout Games released these nine minutes of gameplay footage is to show the game’s style. Liberated is a sort of digital playable comic book, so it’s important for the devs at Atomic Wolf to maintain the look and feel of an actual, physical page.

We can see how the game transitions from cutscenes to the gameplay by flipping a page or moving to a different panel. Personally, I’m not sure if I like that the action is confined inside a panel and doesn’t use the entire screen. It might be particularly annoying on the Switch, with its already small screen. However, I’ll have to try it to see if it affects the gameplay.

Speaking of trying it out, Liberated will be playable at PAX East later this month, at the Indie Games Polska pavilion. If you’re heading to Boston on February 27, why not give the game a go?

If you’d like to know more about the game, you can watch the previous Liberated gameplay video. Liberated is coming first to Nintendo Switch in 2020, and a PC is scheduled to follow shortly.
