Description

Rez is a fast-action shooter that takes you deep into the world’s computer network. The “Project K” Network has recently been upgraded to handle the rapid expansion of the information age and the core, known as “Eden,” holds the most advanced artificial intelligence the world has ever seen. Unfortunately, Eden cannot handle the ability to create her own thoughts and buckles under the pressure in an existential breakdown. She is lost deep inside the system, and you’re the only one that can bring her back online, saving the world from utter chaos.

You must blast complex viruses, unlock passwords, and destroy firewall bosses as you search for Eden. Each stage is in a constant state of flux dependent on your shooting techniques, which ultimately control the music and colors of your environment. The deeper you get into the dreamlike cyber world of Rez, your form will evolve or devolve depending on your progress.

Trivia

Rez was released on the Dreamcast, months before the PlayStation 2 release took place. It's not widely known that it was never released on the former platform -both SEGA and UGA officially mention the PS2 release only. This is very likely due to the fact that SEGA discontinued the Dreamcast months before the release of Rez.

As a result, there was no American release of Rez on the Dreamcast, and there was no real publicity surrounding the European release either making it a hard-to-find title.
