Recompile’s description reads:

“Take control of a semi-sapient program and escape deletion in this atmospheric, Metroidvania-inspired hacking adventure. Set in the sprawling 3D world of the Mainframe, Recompile features intense combat, tight platforming, environmental hacking and a unique branching narrative.”

In Recompile players will be able to hack the environment and the enemies, but they will not be easy to take down. The world will be shifting constantly and players will need to use different abilities to navigate it, including flight with a jetpack and time dilation. Due to the different choices players can make there will be multiple endings available in Recompile. Players themselves play as a piece of semi-sentient code and will face off against the Mainframe that will delete anything that is out of place.
