“Dead Age” thrills you with round-based battles, a non-linear story and tactical survival management
On July 14, Headup Games unleashes an army of the undead – with the new singleplayer survival RPG Dead Age. It’s developed by indie studio Silent Dreams, which already established itself with the Grotesque Tactics series.
The player finds him/herself as a lone survivor in the middle of a devastating zombie apocalypse, which countless people already fell victim to. To survive the daily hazards of this godforsaken world on the search for his sister he allies with a small group of other survivors who have to fight for their lives day for day.
During the game’s progress, the players get in charge of the management of the protecting camp and accepts a variety of objectives. For example, to counter the ever growing zombie pest, you will have to craft your own weapons, molotov cocktails, traps and more. In addition, the retrieval for kinsmen, acquisition of the scarce resources, and the protection against zombie attacks and threats by other survivors has to be done on a daily basis.
While doing so the player gets dragged into the incidents of this dark world and influences the progress of the non-linear story by his own decisions and the successful completion of certain objectives.
Dead Age is available on 07/14/2016 for Early Access on STEAM followed by frequent updates. The final release is planned for early October.
About Dead Age
Survive the zombie apocalypse with turn-based combat and permanent death! Manage survivors, go on dangerous scavenging runs, build alliances, craft equipment, make difficult story-influencing decisions, defend your camp against undead hordes and experience non-linear rogue-lite elements. In addition, each new playthrough in this Indie Survival-RPG offers different random missions and survivors to meet.
Just after the zombie outbreak you were fortunate enough to join a group of survivors and hole up in their camp. But that doesn’t set you out of danger! Food supplies are running low, injured survivors must be tended to and materials need to be scavenged to keep the camp intact. The zombie threat increases steadily and gangs of hostile survivors keep you on the defensive.
Another feature of Dead Age is its non-linear story with real in-game consequences. Decisions you make in conflict situations affect the story’s future. You can choose to be a hero and save more survivors, or let them die to stock up on supplies. You can build romance relationships with other survivors or start rivalries that may have disastrous chain reactions. Daily events offer new dangers and situations in which you must make choices that affect the survival chances of your camp. Live long enough, and have a chance to unlock one of the game’s six possible endings.
