“The way technology is being used to aid government control. This has changed drastically in the 21st century. And we wanted to explore the dangers of where it’s seemingly headed,” said Marek Czerniak, Creative Director at Atomic Wolf. “Liberated explores this in a nuanced, pragmatic way. With a stylish blend of motion comics. And gameplay that keeps things brisk and stylish. On the edge of your seat!”
“When we first saw what Liberated was up to. We were instantly hooked!” said Robert Purzycki, co-founder of Walkabout. “It’s exploring real issues that we grapple with every day. As we wrestle with both the advantages. Also the perils of technology and social media. And the stranglehold corporations have over us. We think it’s one of the most thought provoking games on the horizon. And can’t wait to hear players discuss it!”
