The world as you know it is gone. Coastlines have been swallowed up by rising sea levels, leaving only islands and swampland. Nations crumbled with survivors forming nomadic groups, just trying to make it another day.
Despite the warnings, the climate crisis devolved into true catastrophe.
Floodland, the apocalyptic survival/city-builder game from developer Vile Monarch and PLAION’s publishing label Ravenscourt, is participating in Steam Next Fest. From October 3 to October 10, players can wade into the treacherous waters of the flooded Earth to experience the roughly hour-long Floodland demo.
Floodland is a society survival game set in a world destroyed by climate change. Starting with a lost bunch of survivors, you must scavenge resources, rediscover lost technology, and maintain the peace between differing factions in order to rebuild some semblance of a society. Grow and manage your colony, create a meaningful community, enforce the laws and ensure the well-being of the society you create in the merciless environment. Make important decisions that will directly impact the course of events while managing supplies, clean water, shelter, health, and many more unexpected resources needed for your colony to grow. Only you can lead humanity on the path to prosperity.
Key features of Floodland include:
- Endless Oceans: Every new game in Floodland is different; maps, events and make up of the world are randomly generated, allowing unique playthroughs every time.
- See a Need, Fill a Need: Building a city is one thing, but your people need more than just shelter. Balance your limited resources, space, and labor to provide them with food, water, medicine, security, and new technologies.
- Laying Down the Law: Define the laws of your new society using the expansive Law-Tree. Can you unite your people behind a common goal, or will your rulings cause even more chaos and rebellion? Choose your path carefully…
- From Sea to Shining Sea: Explore the scattered islands of a flooded Earth in order to scavenge resources and grow your colony. Help who you can along the way, while dealing with those who do not share your vision of the future.
Floodland launches on PC via Steam on November 15, 2022. Play the demo during Steam Next Fest, happening from October 3rd to 10th.
