In Basement, you play as a great scientist that has to do not-exactly-legal stuff underground, as nobody wants to support his idea. Basement is all about management. You build your own enterprise producing and researching drugs. Find the right place, build production rooms, hire workers and security staff, avoid federal agents and raise the most effective company.

Hello! We’re very excited to announce that we’ve just sent our first Basement prototype to backers who chose pledges with closed beta access. This is very important stage for us. From now we are ready to get feedback from first players and improve game according to it and our vision. We’re planning to show game updates frequently with fresh content and functionality.

What to check in this prototype (version 0.0.1)?

  • We’ve completely reworked environment and rooms
  • Absolutely new characters, now they are animated 3d models
  • Awesome gameplay tracks from Matt Mclean
  • Inspections and basement combats
  • JRPG-style city battles that start when your truck gets busted
  • City map that lets you manage sales

It’s very important to understand, that what we’re going to show isn’t Beta, and not even Alpha-version of a game. It’s a more or less stable prototype, that tries to show direction of a game design development. It can’t be treated as a full-featured game. And now, if you haven’t checked your email yet, do it. You’ll find all the information you need to run game in your inbox. Waiting for your feedback!

Really enjoyable! Loved it much, except that I can nowhere find information how to sell the different shops/labs that you installed when you do not longer need them ( if its possible). Or how to handle the police/fireman.
Also I dont know how to buy a new house like the ones I can see in the screenshots.

@cipherdec anyway, we don't use any kind of ad for promotion.

May 19 2015, 3:20am

@cipherdec yep. Even more, you can't use "drug" in any mail to press, because your mail immediately fall into spam ;)
