Players take the role of D-Tritus in the open world of Chimera inhabited by robots, who must investigate a serial killer that seems to be human.

There's a single player campaign as well as multiplayer spaceship racing and combat.

The remaster is available now on Steam and GOG for £19.99.

It includes 4K resolution, high-res texture upscaling, enhanced lighting, gamepad support, and new servers for the multiplayer experience.

As for the studio's next project, it's currently working on a new third-person action-RPG "set in a dark fantasy world".
