The realm of the living has been corrupted to its core and a storm is coming to change the world order. This storm is you, a mighty Necromancer, a sorcerer who denies death and leads the legions of the dead. Clerics and lords hope to hide behind high walls, but there’s no stronghold to cover them from your wrath. Smite hundreds of those standing in your way and turn them into your tools on the way to a greater purpose.

The Unliving is a dynamic rogue-lite action RPG with strategic elements. Raise the undead, use numerous spells and explore a mystical world, all realised with darkly extravagant pixel-art.

TURN ENEMIES INTO YOUR UNDEAD ARMY
Each fallen foe can be resurrected and added to your army to create unlimited legions of the dead. These re-animated creatures have their own unique abilities, such as the undead Priest whose blessings in life, will now curse your enemies in death.


CRUSH EVERYONE IN YOUR WAY
Only some of the living are helpless victims, the rest can retaliate against your forces. They hold the line, move in large groups and wield powerful abilities too. They cherish their lives and will not fall easily, so unleash hell as the Undead Lord to bring them to their knees.


CONQUER UNCHARTED LANDS
The world is randomly generated for each run and is richly populated with an array of creatures, artefacts, secret rooms and deadly traps. Each part of the world is occupied by a variety of living inhabitants - invade villages and slay feeble peasants to reinforce your army or engage in a desperate fight to the death in the swamps against formidable foes.


UNRAVEL THE MYSTERIES OF NECROMANCY
Collect cryptic notes, force answers out of your enemies and study the writings of the ancient artefacts to gather the lost memories of the Necromancer piece by piece as you reveal the nature of his immortality, the secrets of his phylactery companion and find out the grim truth about the supreme hierarchies of the Church.


BATTLE EPIC BOSSES
The powerful creatures of this shadowy world will do all they can to stop you. Each boss has a unique fighting style and set of abilities, meaning deftness in combat and strategic thinking will be crucial in emerging victorious from these grueling encounters.


DIE AND RISE AGAIN
The ability to deny death itself is the greatest secret of the Necromancer. Another mortal strike is merely a setback for him. Take a lesson from your death and don’t let your enemies catch you the same way twice.

We are thrilled to announce we have partnered with Team17 to bring you The Unliving!

The Unliving is a dynamic rogue-lite action RPG with strategic elements. You'll raise the dead as a fearsome Necromancer and lead your undead legions into an endless fight. Burn cities to ash with devastating magic spells, fight bosses, and turn your enemies into morbid servants along the way.

Rest your freshly risen bones and watch the new trailer here:

Key features for those who have just discovered The Unliving:

  • Turn enemies into your undead army: Each fallen foe can be resurrected and made members of your army, their unique abilities added to the arsenal of your undead legions.
  • Die and rise again: The ability to deny death itself is the greatest secret of the Necromancer. Another mortal strike is merely a setback for him. Take a lesson from your death and don’t let your enemies catch you the same way twice.
  • Conquer uncharted lands: The world is randomly generated for each run and is richly populated with an array of creatures, artifacts, secret rooms, and deadly traps. You'll go from raiding quaint villages to even wading through swamps.
  • Unravel the mysteries of necromancy: Gather the lost memories of the Necromancer piece by piece through artifacts, notes and even forcing answers out of enemies. You'll work to uncover the grim truth of The Church.
