A New Tactical RPG Coming in 2017

Depth of Extinction is a retro RPG with a modern turn-based, tactical combat system. Recruit and lead your team on raids in undersea habitats containing all that remains of humanity. Find cover and attack enemies but be careful because every move is critical if you want to keep your team alive.

Customize your character with upgrades, skills and weapons as you explore many different environments rendered in beautiful pixel art in this modern take on the classic story driven role-playing formula.

  • Turn based, tactical control of a squad of mercenary pirates
  • Procedurally generated undersea habitats to explore
  • Tons of weapons, armor and items to find
  • Many character skills to unlock based on stats and chosen class
  • Recruit different characters to your team
  • A game that brings modern gameplay with classic retro-RPG stylings

We’ve been pretty quiet recently but are releasing Build 35 out to our First Access customers today and also releasing 100 more keys to the First Access. For those keeping track, that means we skipped 34. There are a few reasons for this but it was mainly because we just wanted to release these builds together as they focus primarily on the increasing the visual quality of the game as we work on getting the release trailer created and updating screenshots and marketing materials across all our launch platforms.

Build 34 focused on making big improvements to the mission screen UI. This is the screen you interact with between missions.

Also, we were at SIEGE in Atlanta last weekend and Depth of Extinction won the Best Design award! Huge honor to get an award, especially one recognizing the game in this way.
