For a decade, Earth has been at the mercy of a portal which has raged with impunity and has transformed the planet into an ashen wasteland. From the portal ushered forth monstrous entities which have roamed the Earth to devour its inhabitants. The portal is alive as if it were breathing, a doorway from one realm to another; it destructively rips through the fabric of time and space. It Inhales the energy of Earth and the life it sustains, while exhaling those beings drawn to it from the other side.

No living person knows more than that the portal was not a natural occurrence. It is instead a byproduct of irresponsible and overeager scientific endeavors undertaken by the governments military; this event has become known as the Rift.Those still alive have succumbed to corruption, apathy, or a life of barbarism. However, there are those who still maintain some semblance of who they once were, including a man accompanied by a dog who have been surviving among the wreckage of the American mid-west.These two journey towards the Rift in hopes of saving what’s left of their home.

ehh, not so much... no 1950s, no system heavy aim-assisting or anything like that. and not so open world, and a little more linear story.

I expected it to be open world, but from the looks of it, thats not a problem at all! Be sure to stick to the good old quake level design (lots of secrets and hidden items and many paths to reach your goal). Looks great, already backed your kick starter and am super excited!

lol quake level design was still a bunch of corridors. it was just more convoluted than today's level design. a perfect level design would reflect how actual locations looked

Life is old there, older than the trees, younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze. #gamedev #Unity5

That feel you feel when you notice your game trailer still gets 200 to 300 views a day, even when you're just quietly developing. #gamedev
