DERELICTION : 2022 // now on STEAM


Dereliction : 2022 is now on Steam. We have a new (updated) trailer there. The demo is there. And you can wishlist it there now too!


Dereliction 2022 is a Roguelike Horde Shooter...

In the game, you find yourself at the entrance of a large underground facility. This facility has long been abandoned, and is swarming with alien bugs, the Dross.

You are given a weapon and tasked to enter the facility...
The world is procedurally generated. So every attempt is different. The items you get will be different each time. And you will choose different upgrades and abilities each attempt as well.
The enemy swarms in the game get harder to fight as you progress too. Their numbers increase. They start growing tougher armor plates on different parts of their bodies. The nests grow larger and have more self defences. The growth across the floors slow the player down and alert the swarms to your location.

Demo update news:

I am working on a new update for the demo. This will be version 0.1.7.
In this update I have mostly been focusing on optimizing. Since the level is created procedurally, it usually uses a whole lot of little art pieces. These add up over time, adding strain on the cpu. It’s nothing special, but I am merging more and more of the level into larger chunks that toggle on and off based on the player. It is mostly manually set up so it’s taking a bit of time. And I do not want to release a demo with any of the art issues I have been encountering.

I am also working on the plasma gun. It is the alternative to the plasma rifle and uses the same ammo type.
There’s also a few changes to the tutorial area, the icons for the map, and just general ease of use stuff. I am not wanting to make the game unnecessary difficult due to confusing the player. So, I am trying to make sure everything is easier to figure out.

I will have the update out soon. I will probably write an article going over it in detail at that time too.
Please consider wishlisting Dereliction on steam. Try out the demo, and let me know what you think. I appreciate the feedback I have already gotten and I can always use more. It has all really helped me improve the game, and that’s what I really want to do. So, thank you.
