Exploring a flooded post-apocalyptic world in this new promising turn-based tactical RPG. Heavily inspired by games like Fallout, X-com and FTL.
The independent HOF STUDIO based in Atlanta is working at Depth of Extinction. A new pixeled turn-based game that features in-depth strategic gameplay and high replay value.
Exploring a flooded world
In the Depth of Extinction the oceans have covered the whole world.
We will find ourselves guiding the defenders of the last government on a desperate mission to save the earth.
We will have to train and lead a group of mercenaries and guide them to the final mission.
The world map and the nodes
We will explore a procedurally generated world map in FTL style with our submarine. We have to choose from different destinations (nodes), each one with his reward: weapons, armors, fuel, soldiers.
Defending our submarine from pirate attacks and try to never run out of fuel is vital.
Each campaign has a length ranging from 5 to 10 hours.
Turn-based tactical combat
When we choose a node there will always be an enemy encounter who will start the combat phase.
The combat phase is turn-based, with X-Com style coverage system.
Each soldier has its own characteristics that increase with increasing experience and will affect accuracy and ability to move.
They become stronger and will find better equipment along the way to the final boss.
We better be prepared because the final boss is really challenging.
In the game there is the perma-death with iron mode. A dead soldier cannot come back to life and we can not restore the game from a previous point. Here you will find a good article about the early access of Depth of Extinction.
Here a list of features from their steam page:
- Emergent storyline on randomly generated maps with random encounters
