About the Game
Strongly influenced by games such as FTL, X-Com (originals and reboots), Fallout 1 & 2, Shadowrun and Wasteland 2, this procedurally generated tactical RPG stands on its own as a worthy game for fans of those series. 

I think this is going to be an incredible game when it’s finished. It’s already damn fun now!

Depth of Extinction, a tactical turn-based RPG inspired by X-Com and Fallout, will have players wandering a flooded post-apocalyptic world, fighting pirates, raiders, and androids while trying to keep order.

About First Access

We are at a point in the development where we need the community's help to balance the gameplay. We are going to begin selling a limited number of First Access copies of Depth of Extinction at a discount over the expected retail price ($19.99) so that you can experience the game as we are making it, have input into the final direction, and help us determine what is working and what is not.

Final Release Plan
The final game is planned to be released on Steam in Spring 2018.

Anyone who purchases the First Access will also receive a Steam key when the game launches there.
