Our Barren Earth is a post-apocalyptic RPG set in a cold, dark world where a rogue planet entering our solar system has violently pulled earth out of orbit and into the freezing abyss of space. In this frigid land, decisiveness is essential and after so many years only the most hardened survivors remain. Learn about this broken world and the people who cling to life on it as you journey through wastelands in the hopes of finding paradise.
When the demo is eventually released it will be around 2 hours in length, scaling towards 3 if you are less experienced with RPG combat. There will only have one ending but there will be different choices to make that will affect yourself and your party as you reach the conclusion. Combat will be challenging but fair, no one likes to just mash the one button throughout fights and I aim to reflect that with meaningful, balanced encounters. And no random encounters ruining the flow either. Thinking outside the box during gameplay is the best way to make survival as likely as possible, be that via thoughtful use of your parties powers in combat, exploration, or interaction with the environment to find every little piece of help available to you.

A solid cast of both permanent and temporary party members, each with their own uniquely ridiculous superpower.

Challenging combat opportunities in an unforgiving world that absolutely hates you.

An intricately designed environment that rewards exploration and jumping off cliffs.

Sounds cool when can I play?
Ideally I'd like to have at least the first arc of the story out and ready by the end of the year, 2023. But with development proceeding at a slower-than-ideal pace due to it currently being a solo venture I do ask for your patience and understanding. Not to mention obligatory real life commitments I'm sure you understand <3
Thanks for reading and I'll see you soon!
