We are LIBERATED and we are taking over this article!
Erm… LIBERATED is our newly released action-adventure game presented within a beautiful hand-drawn comic book. At heart, it’s a cinematic platformer/shooter. It’s set in a cyberpunk dystopia. We believe it is unique enough to be its own thing, BUT… It might also scratch that itch you might have for certain classic games!
