Matt’s excitement for the imminent release of République: Anniversary Edition is evident:
I can’t wait for players to discover what we mean when we say we build ‘meaningful games’ by experiencing République’s story, which I believe are even more relevant today than they were when Episode 1 first released back in 2013.
