About dotAGE

dotAGE is a turn-based city builder with roguelike mechanics where you try to survive the apocalypse or die trying….literally. The game is developed by a solo developer, Michele Pirovano. You play as a village Elder who had a blurry vision of an apocalyptic future. And it is up to you to guide your village in order to survive the events foretold by your Prophecy.

  • Endless Content – dozens of buildings to research, with full production chains from raw materials to finished products
  • The Prophecy Looms – the complex Fate system will throw more than 500 events at you to fight off. From simple coughs to earthquakes, from tornadoes to plagues, from volcanoes to inondations, from taxes to kittens, from diseases to furious murders
  • The world changes – life becomes harder and harder as you play, keep an eye on the current levels of Fear, Sickness, Heat, Cold, and Cataclysm!
  • Cute yet merciless pixels – the cute pixel art details all the harsh realities of these Dark Ages. Don’t get fooled by the happy colors!
  • All different playthroughs – Play a different game and a different story each time thanks to the Fate system and a dynamic research tree
