Dark Crystal Games announced that it is working on a new isometric RPG in a sci-fi post-apocalyptic setting, called Encased. The game tells the story of a disastrous research project inside an anomalous zone – the Dome – built in the middle of a desert by an unknown civilization, and below you can find its first screenshots.
Encased is an old-school RPG with a turn-based combat system. The story campaign will be approximately 25-30 hours long with significant replay potential. The player will be able to explore the game’s open world and make hard decisions that influence the plot. The world actively reacts to the player’s actions and changes constantly. This also works vice versa, as environmental changes within the game will influence gameplay style.
Encased is described as a tribute to everything Dark Crystal Games loves about famous RPGs from the 90s and early 00s. It’s like Fallout, Baldur’s Gate and Planescape: Torment mixed in reasonable proportions and enhanced by modern graphics, intriguing story, and breathtaking tactical battles.
The game will release in 2019, and below you can find its first screenshots alongside its backstory trailer!
