République Marches On With Episode 3: Ones & Zeroes
Independent studio Camouflaj announced today that the third of five installments in the critically acclaimed game République IS NOW RELEASED on the App Store. Partnering with Darkwind Media, Episode 1: Exordium, Episode 2: Metamorphosis, and Episode 3: Ones & Zeroes will finally arrive on Android marketplaces Google Play and Amazon App Store. Executed by industry veterans behind AAA games including Halo 4 and Metal Gear Solid 4, République brings console-quality gameplay and graphics to iOS and Android devices.
République’s award-winning story continues with Ones & Zeroes. In their quest to liberate Hope, the player seeks the help of an unlikely ally: Mattie Sade, the editor-in-chief of the surveillance state’s newspaper. In the most voluminous installment yet, the player builds a case against Hope’s captors using Mattie’s access to a secret network reaching far beyond the walls of Metamorphosis. Equal parts combat and puzzle-solving, EP3 expands the universe of République with revelations on the Overseer’s chilling plans for the world.
“Ones & Zeroes is the longest episode yet, clocking in at over three hours for most players,” said Ryan Payton, designer at Camouflaj. “Not only is EP3 our most content heavy episode to date, I’m really proud how our new features retroactively enhance previous episodes.”
Through a partnership with Darkwind Media, République finally arrives on Android. “When Camouflaj approached us about bringing République to Android, we couldn’t pass on the opportunity,” says Matthew Mikuszewski, co-founder of Darkwind Media. “We share Camouflaj’s passion for delivering polished, quality content. Darkwind is excited to be a part of République, and can’t wait to hear Android players’ reactions.”

• Longest Republique Episode Yet: including stunning new “Terminus” environments
