You have been stolen out of time and space and placed upon a strange alien world. A strange glowing structure in the immediate area is the first thing you notice. As you stand there, others begin appearing from around the structure. From here, it is up to you to survive in this harsh world as there appears to be no immediate way back home. Will you work with others? Will you become a protector or destroyer? Will this be your new home, or will you try to find a way back to the world you once knew.

Contributors and Helpers have had a few days with the first test of Epica Rex. Now I invite everyone who is willing to join us. The new launcher will soon be available for download here on Indie DB for the remainder of this testing period.

The launcher will download the game if you don't have it right now. It will inform you from then on if there are new updates and so on. This doesn't mean there is currently a new version of Epica Rex at this time, but you don't have to worry about having missed a message with the launcher.

This free period of testing will last until I get the game keys (thus the testing keys) in order. If you like the direction the game is heading, I sincerely ask you to contribute (via the Contribution page above) and you will get a testing key (or keys depending on your contribution).

Thank you!

We are THIS CLOSE to having a working pre-pre-alpha...

Hello Jade! As already pointed out, the build you downloaded was a stage very early in development. A proof of concept really. There will be more control over the world when more gets done. Stay tuned and thanks for checking it out =)

After watching some DOOM streams, I conclude that when you build facilities like that, the forces of hell are bound to come anyway.
