First thing I did when I left the bar was stack crates to climb out of an alley, so yeah, Peripeteia is an immersive sim all right. You play a cyborg ex-soldier named Marie, reduced to odd jobs and mercenary work in a city where the main source of heat and light comes from fires in drum barrels. It’s Deus Ex except you’re Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell, retired, in Poland.
The demo includes two missions and they’re bigger than I expected. Huge tower buildings, long hallways full of trash, rooftops connected by pipes, underground tunnels. It’s a good thing I can sprint forever, jump like it’s going out of style, and leap-frog up ledges, which makes exploring a hoot.
