Cyberpunk platformer Replaced is delayed because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine

Revealed at the Xbox-Bethesda showcase in 2021, Replaced (opens in new tab) is a 2.5D cyberpunk action-platformer set in an alt-history 1980s US, a nation plagued by corruption, greed, and a general collapse of society in the wake of a catastrophic nuclear event. As an artificial intelligence imprisoned in a human body, players must explore the region of Phoenix-City and learn to adjust to human life, while “beginning to understand that everything comes at a price.”

I dig the concept and the announcement trailer released last year (embedded above) is a real eye-grabber. Unfortunately, it’s going to be a longer-than-expected wait before I (and you) get to play it. Publisher Coatsink said today that because of the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, it’s been forced to delay the release from 2022 to 2023.
