Free, donation-based oldskool sci-fi adventure game.

Donation based sci-fi adventure game for Windows, Linux and Mac.

“Dead Cyborg” is a freeware, donation based sci-fi adventure game for Windows, Linux and Mac. The story is about the meaning of life... and death... in a rusty post-apocalyptic metal and concrete world. Check the FAQ page for more information.


If you are keen on exploring the levels of fps games, you like the old text adventures, or the sci-fi classics (like Lem, Dick, Bradbury etc.) - you will like this game.

The game will be published by episodes (3-5 hours of play per episode). The first episode will be published in the middle of 2011. The next episodes will come when enough donation is paid for the first episode. The full game will have 3-4 episodes (this is sure, not an endless story or something like that).

"The next episodes will come when enough donation is paid for the first episode."

Could you be more specific about this?

I am pretty sure he was wondering if there is an exact amount or not.

Hi, I can't tell you the exact amout of money.
But some facts:
-the first episode is 4-5 months of work
-in Hungary I need to $400(!) to live per months (this is a very low amount of money I think)
-you must add taxes, and in Hungary the taxes are very high, so we must calculate with a 1.7 multiplier...
-I must add some other amount of money (extra costs) so round up this all to $1000 per month.

So: calculating with these I need at least $4000 for episode 1. And don't forget with this I don't have any profit, I just live with this. But I can start to work in episode 2.
I think this is a very very low amount of money for a game developing...

Sory for my bad english.

Looks really cool... I like the colours and gritty feel.
Would love to see Full Throttle done in this style :)

Will check this one out for sure.
