HOF Studios is excited to announce that Depth of Extinction, a turn-based strategy game with roguelike elements, is launching on Thursday, the 27th of September (according to the press release). It will be landing on a range of platforms, including Steam, GOG, itch.io, and the Humble Store. The game will have a 10% discount on Steam ($17.99) at launch, which ends on October 4th, returning the game to its original price of $19.99.
Depth of Extinction sees you picking fighters from a roster filled with hardened operatives that are just waiting to join your squad. There are 8 classes and over 115 weapons, armor, and items. Then you’ll face vicious factions in battle and killer machines while defending mankind. You’ll clash with your foes in a horrifying underwater world, filled with danger. You’ll also have to keep your wits about you, because permadeath is right around the corner of one bad choice!
An unknown disaster of doomsday proportions plunged the remnants of civilization to the bottom of a now vast ocean thousands of years ago. Humans built a new society beneath the waves as the sea levels rose over time. They rebuilt society and the human population, but now only remnants remain from that time, and the seas are more uncertain.
Mankind finds itself divided into factions. The Republic is the most stable, and uses machines left behind by the Creators (those who rebuilt society long ago beneath the sea). The other factions turned to war instead. With the machines now starting to fail, rumors of killer machines or worse lurking in distant seas now force humanity to venture out to investigate and defend mankind.
