The lore-filled, shoot-em-up RPG Beyond the Veil will release for Steam in Q2 2019, developer Incubator Creations announced today. In a godless world, players must explore the madness-filled wasteland, to discover what happened to the gods before and find their purpose is in this world.
Beyond the Veil features a challenging, harsh world with no forgiveness for the Wanderer, a protagonist exploring the tombs of the gods to find secrets of the Five Kingdoms of the Gods. Along the way, players must be crafty with resources to gather food, water, weapons, and more to overcome the challenges that lie ahead.
“My first goal when developing Beyond the Veil was to create a project that goes beyond a classic top-down shooter and add a game with fresh mechanics and incredible lore,” said Sam West, Founder of Incubator Creations. “The finished product became a well-rounded blend of bullet shooter, RPG, and mysterious mythological existentialism that makes for an immersive narrative I know all fans will appreciate.”
The world is brutal, and its inhabitants no less so. Through the game, players encounter procedurally generated maps of untouched and dangerous ruins where bloody battles will be fought against man, beast, and nightmares. Players can increase character attributes, passive abilities, and weapon selection through timed trials, challenges, story progression.
