The Sundew Is Solo Project That Focuses On Storytelling In A Dystopian Future

The work of solo studio 2054, The Sundew is an up and coming cyberpunk adventure inspired by LucasArts.

It would seem that dystopia is on the minds of most these days, and we certainly can’t complain about the wealth of cyberpunk titles of late. The one on show here is The Sundew, heading to PC and the Switch in summer.

Misreading the year this is set, The Sundew is being developed by one-woman studio 2054. The story follows the aftermath of a future war, following the protagonist, a beat cop.

Drawing inspiration from LucasArts and Wadjet Eye Games (not personally familiar but their catalogue looks great), the focus is on storytelling using pixel art and minimalist sound design.

Your character, Ann Isbobe, is a cybernetically enhanced cop, in a time where cyborgs have become taboo and replaced by droves. With their dark past, you will investigate a global conspiracy in the dystopian landscape.

After several years of work and many adventures, The Sundew is finally about to see the light of day. I see this game as a world that players will be able to enter, followed by other games in the same universe. My greatest joy will be to see the players take over this world and make it their own!” 

Agnès Vuillaume, solo developer of The Sundew.
