Cila, a veteran cop with a sour outlook and anger issues. Mara, a strange new android girl intended to replace a broken housedroid. Blinding neon lights, the smell of ozone, and concrete and metal as far as the eye can see. A technological singularity beyond all comprehension, and now, the story of a life beyond an Empire’s walls.
SYNERGIA – the critically acclaimed and best-selling yuri/LGBT themed cyberpunk thriller visual novel from developer RADI ARTS, is receiving a remastered next-gen edition that will bring the game natively to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S for the first time on October 3rd. The next-gen edition will also release on PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One, where the previous iteration of the game was available. Pre-existing owners of the old version will receive a full discount for the price discount between the titles.
Having been heavily lauded in its original release, the next-gen edition of SYNERGIA adds native 4k artwork and support for next-gen features such as enhanced loading and cloud features. It also adds new in-game content never before seen, including a 56-page original artbook, in-game comic reader, music listening room, and much more.
Accompanying the next-gen edition is the long awaited SUNRISE expansion, which will be integrated into the next-gen edition of SYNERGIA. Additionally, the SUNRISE DLC and both the artbook and comic will be released on PC at the same time as the Next-Gen launch. It all launches October 3rd at 12PM EST / 9AM PST. The NextGen Edition will be $19.99 on consoles, or $4.99 for pre-existing owners. On PC, the SUNRISE DLC will be free, and the Artbook & Comic Compendium bundle will be $11.99.
SUNRISE tells the story of what happens after the end of the world: one year after Cila and Mara navigate the events of the SYNERGIA incident, SUNRISE explores their future outside of The Empire’s neon jungle, and the repurcussions on the world around them. The Emperor’s right-hand – the Master of the Art of Sacrifice – Yu, prepares to make a reunion with the now-reviled Cila and Mara as she seeks to settle things, once and for all, with The Empire’s most wanted terrorist: Yoko, the enigmatic black-market dealer who “gifted” Mara to Cila originally.
SYNERGIA Next-Gen edition will ship with SUNRISE inclusive, and current existing owners will receive a discount on this edition as mentioned above. The DLC is free on PC. Additionally, prior Kickstarter backers will receive the next-gen edition for free. SYNERGIA NEXTGEN EDITION and SYNERGIA SUNRISE will be available on PlayStation 5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC come October 3rd, 2024.

Cila, a veteran cop with a sour outlook and anger issues expects nothing more from life besides the smell of ozone, blinding neon lights and the ever-present manhole steam. At least, until a shady friend replaces her broken-down housedroid as a favor. Advanced, more efficient and remarkably perceptive, unit M.A.R.A. begins to penetrate Cila’s toughened exterior and possibly even heal her new owner’s old wounds – if Cila can decipher the recurring nightmare the process brings. Soon Cila and Mara forge a unique – if sometimes uneasy – bond. Unbeknownst to Cila, just as her life begins to find its new normal, the technological giant Velta Labs gets wind of Mara’s existence and takes a mysterious interest in the android. A war unlike any before it is brewing on the horizon, its players are silently being selected and one android’s fate may spell the difference between peace, war, the blossoming of a new religion, or a technological singularity beyond comprehension.
One year after the events of the Synergia Incident, Cila and Mara’s lives have drastically changed, as have the lives of all those around them. This DLC is a small glimpse into their future outside of The Empire, and the repercussions of their actions during the main game.
Bathed in the ultraviolet lights of the European Travel Union, Yu, the Emperor’s right-hand, prepares to reunite with the reviled Cila and Mara and finally settle things with The Empire’s most wanted terrorist: Yoko.
