Judgment: Apocalypse, a colony simulation game with tactical combat that takes place in the midst of The Apocalypse from developers Suncrash, has launched on Steam Early Access. Guide a group of survivors through the mayhem — hiding from hellspawn and building a safe haven. The game combines a base economy simulation with tactical combat missions; you survive by crafting equipment, defending your base and sending teams to scavenge for supplies.
Judgment: Apocalypse is set to have a number of features, including:
- Design a hidden colony in the midst of the apocalypse
- Fight creatures of the abyss in real-time tactical combat with pause
- Craft supplies and level up survivor skills
- Explore a randomly generated world overrun with hellspawn and scavenge essential resources
- Combine scientific and occult research to create a beacon of hope
The plot for the game says that, while camping, four friends find themselves face to face with a horrifying creature — a demon intent on killing them. Now that The Apocalypse has begun, survival instincts take hold — and the friends manage to kill it. However, one of them doesn’t make it. As the survivors flee, they find that the town has been engulfed in flames and run to a nearby isolated valley.
“Safe (for now), the group vows to fight back. But first they must survive, create a hidden shelter, and determine what has happened to their world. They search for additional survivors, teach themselves science, and dabble in the dark arts. Using whatever they can find, create or summon, they are determined to fight back!
“The Apocalypse may be here, but hope is not lost. Mankind has yet to be judged. True resistance can still tip the scales. Will you help them create a new society?”
According to Suncrash, players must strike a balance between rebuilding and scavenging a devastated world for supplies and information. You must help the survivors with basic needs and also invest time in research to craft advanced equipment. Dabble in the occult to gain an advantage, but beware: Everything comes with a price.
