You know the cyberpunk-themed Blade Runner movie. The first one was released in 1982, starring Harrison Ford and directed by Ridley Scott, who has made many great productions. The first movie was great for 1982. Exactly 35 years after the first movie, a new sequel was shot and it was a great work like the original. The name of the second movie was Blade Runner 2049, the leading actors were Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Ana De Armas, Jared Leto and the director of the movie was Denis Villeneuve, the director of the Dune Desert Planet series.
I wish there was a sequel series to Blade Runner 2049, so we could watch K (Ryan Gosling) and Joi (Ana De Armas) over and over again every day… but it didn’t happen. (There is no news about Blade Runner: Black Lotus yet!) But if there are those who daydream like me and cannot break away from the Blade Runner universe, I have good news for them; A great game about the time between the Blade Runner series is coming!
The name of the game is “Blade Runner 2033: Labyrinth”
The game is being developed by Annapurna Interactive, the publisher of the Cyberpunk-themed, cat-puzzle adventure game Stray. The style of the game is adventure, puzzle and exploration. But it’s not open world.
Will we be able to drive K’s vehicle in the game? We don’t know if Joi will be our assistant or if the original film cast and universe will be preserved as they are. However, the developer of the game, Annapurna Interactive, says that they will share more details about the game soon, and it looks like they will have some surprises for us.
It has not yet been announced when the game will be on sale. However, when it is released, it will be playable on both consoles and computers. In fact, the Steam page of the game has already been published;
There is also a short announcement video about the game. However, it is very difficult to get an impression of what the game will be like from this video. So we need to patiently wait for new news and videos about the game.
The Blade Runner film series is based on Philip K. Dick’s science fiction novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, first published in 1968. It is adapted from his novel (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?).
The Blade Runner series is among the unforgettable ones for me, such as Alita, Ghost in the Shell and Reminiscence. You can’t imagine how happy I will be if a game with a long story, great graphics and an open world comes along. Hopefully Annapurna Interactive won’t mess up with this and they will be able to produce a game that we will play for years to come.
If you do a little research, you will see that there was a Blade Runner game released for Windows in 1997. But most of us do not know this game and have not played it. In fact, the game is currently on sale with its improved version on Steam, but no one shows any interest. Because although the game was very impressive for the time it was published, it seems too bad to appeal to many game lovers in 2023. If you are a die-hard fan of the Blade Runner series and want to experience some nostalgia, you can go to Blade Runner’s Steam page from this link and buy the enhanced version of the game for 9.99$.
