Despotism 3k Heads To Switch On May 30, 2020

Need an outlet to unleash your unbridled, inner tyrant? Well, you’ll soon be able to stretch your thumbs with this upcoming title…

The Switch eShop has updated with a new listing for Despotism 3k, which launches 30 May 2020 for $10.99 USD. The rogue-lite resource management game sees players assuming the role of a heartless AI that has enslaved humanity – and it’s their job to make sure their slaves don’t stop turning the gears!

Check out a brief trailer below:

Humanity is enslaved by an AI… which is awesome, because we’re on the right side of the conflict.

Exploit puny humans to extract power and build your own empire! You’ll have to keep track of them to make sure they don’t succumb to exhaustion and hunger… although the weakest ones can always be thrown to the Bioreactor.

In other words, this is a resource management sim with rogue-lite elements, dramatic plot, and an abundance of pop culture references. Also, jokes. Slaughter has never been so fun!

Key features:

  • Humor as dark as your ex’s heart. Immerse yourself in the life of a merciless tyrant!!
  • Resource management on steroids. Think fast, to the point, and abandon pity!
  • Rogue-lite. Every walk-through is unique due to randomly generated events. And every failure is fatal — you’ll have to start over!
  • Easy to learn, hard to master. It only takes a couple minutes to figure out the game’s mechanics, but using them optimally is no small feat!
