A strategic visual novel telling the story of a crashed colony ship and its ragged group of survivors, trying to make a new life on the wrong planet.
TNW is a visual novel/strategy hybrid in the vein of The Banner Saga, King of Dragon Pass and Oregon Trail, with an emphasis on planning and decision-making over combat. Keep as many colonists alive as possible by making the tough decisions which will determine how your adventure unfolds. Build colony structures, salvage wreckage, resolve problems with multiple branching outcomes, and manage your colony’s dwindling supplies; all while playing through an intense story of intrigue, sabotage, desperation and survival, by writer Ryan A. Span (FRONTIERS, Mount&Blade, Euclidean).
Robust strategy system -- manage your colony on a hostile world and keep your people alive
Fully hand-drawn art in retro-industrial sci-fi style
Two different protagonists to choose from, each with their own quirks and methods
Colourful and memorable cast of NPCs
Dozens of events to help you or challenge you
Hundreds of decisions to make, each with its own consequences

Red dust flutters in the dry, desultory breeze. The wreckage of the starship Exodus lies scattered across miles of empty ground. The broken pieces of what was supposed to be your home. There's no air and no life but what you bring with you.
The deck is stacked against you. But when has that ever stopped you before?
This planet will challenge you. Now rise to meet it. Build a home. Rally your people. Survive, at any cost.
The Next World awaits.
