The New Us is a PC RPG that places an emphasis on exploration and story.

Players will explore surreal environments, fight bizarre enemies, and make increasingly tough decisions as they travel through the mysterious Citadel.

Plot Summary

In the new millennium, the old world is nothing but a memory.

Instead, the last of humanity is confined within the Citadel: a mega-building forged by the Old Gods.

Inside, cruelty and death is abundant.

Outside, wasteland scavengers struggle to survive in a forgotten earth.

To save what's left of your family, you must ascend the Citadel, and face the horrors that lie within.


General goals for this project:

Create a moving, dark, and ultimately hopeful story about rebellion, oppression, and what comes next when everything falls apart.

Unique, meaningful battles. No random encounters, and no repeated enemy types. Losing a fight won't always mean a game over.

Choices with long term consequences.

Small worlds that feel alive. NPCs should always be doing something even if it's just an idle breathing animation.

This game is going to be really weird. Expect to be put in a lot of odd situations.

Looking for play testers! THE NEW US

Hey people. I would REALLY appreciate some feedback on my latest demo!

Things still need to be polished, especially in regards to combat, but the story/content presented is what will be in the kickstarter demo.

Thank you.

I just realized that I forgot to copy the attributions from the itch.io page! It will be put up later tonight.
The design goals and overview look like a really wonderful roadmap for a project. Let me know if you need testers.
