Observer (stylized as >observer_) is a first-person psychological horror featuring a dystopian, cyberpunk vision of the future, set in Cracow, Poland, 2084. The player assumes the role of a titular observer, i.e. a neural detective hired by an elite corporate-funded police unit, able to hack into minds of criminals. The main protagonist, Daniel Lazarski, is starred by Rutger Hauer, the actor known from the role of replicant Roy Batty in Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. In order to solve a mystery of a personal dimension, he needs to search for clues in seedy slums of Cracow and relive some dark memories and fears of suspects and victims.
