    A heavily armoured soldier with a rotary Gatling gun... yes.

    I wonder how long it will take for them to finish up the game :). Will buy, of course, given the chance.

    Latest News

    The first content patch is out!

    new prologue, first act for New Committee, new quests and much more



    Since the release of Encased, we've been constantly releasing patches that fix bugs and improve the balance of weapons and abilities. In parallel with the work on urgent fixes, the studio was working hard every day on the first content patch, an extension that moved the game's story forward. So far, only a part of the story line is ready, and during 2020 you will see even more content patches, that will be followed by the full-fledged release.

    Development updates from Dark Crystal Games are back! In the latest update, we'll talk about the Encased narrative and how it will affect players. You'll learn how quests and stories under the Dome are created.

    Only the most attentive will learn all the secrets and story of the Encased world. Each note, terminal or voicemail contains not only a part of the game's overall plot, but also stories of people, trying to survive in the rapidly collapsing society. The protagonist is not a passive observer, they're the main driving force of the game world.

    As a bonus for a long silence, we publish the next update immediately. In the sixth development update we'll tell you about random encounters in Encased. You'll learn how they are created and how players can influence event outcomes. We'll also talk about easter eggs and unique rewards. Raiders, tactical puzzles, illustrated dialogues, unique items - all this awaits you in the new release of Encased development update

    Not enough people are talking about this game. It looks great. Can't wait to play this when it's complete. Looks like it could top Atom rpg which was also great.

    How optimized is this game? Does it run well for an early access title?

    Hello, everyone!

    Today we are pleased to present the second content patch for Encased. The world under the Dome was changed a lot. The game got day and night cycle, new locations, additional quests, characters and a mysterious companion with the fox mask.

    We worked hard on an updated combat system, redesigned balance, added new weapons and weapon effects. Variability of the playthroughs was also increased thanks to new dialogue choices, an expanded skill system and additional encounters.

    Sorry for the late reply. In Encased we plan to create more than 70 unique locations. You can already estimate the total size of the map in the early access (although not all events, locations and quests are added there yet).

    By the way check out our new dev. update History Behind Russian Fallout

    In it we will tell you about the Russian Fallout phenomenon in the gaming industry. Let's see for ourselves what it's all about8-)
