Good News!

For those of you who purchased special editions of Nether! We promised a solution since we took out in app purchases in order to compensate you and now we have one.

Since gold no longer exists in the game, we are offering extra codes for Nether for every person who purchased DLC or special editions. This way, you can invite your friends or family to play for free. You are free to use those codes as you wish.

If you purchased DLC, you will get 3 extra codes.
If you purchased a special edition of Nether, you will get 5 extra codes.

All you have to do is email us at support@phosphorgames.com with a proof of purchase (screenshot, order number, forwarding the original purchase email, what-have-you) and we will send out those codes within 5-10 business days.

Thanks for being so patient.

Love,
Phosphor

About This Game

NETHER...IS...BACK! We have rolled back the game to Summer of 2014, when it first left Early Access and was still being developed by us, Phosphor Games Studio.

RIGHT NOW:
- Single Player enabled: It was not possible before, but now it's working, and it's hard! Have fun surviving the monster-filled urban apocalypse alone
- No more micro-transactions: all items can be bought with in game cash
- Multiplayer via player hosted servers! The old back end ripped out - no need for any login besides Steam. You control your community, and nobody can take your game from you again

WHAT IS IN DEVELOPMENT:
- Custom server settings: you decided how many players, how many Nether, how much gun spawns, etc.
- Modding tools![/b]
- Bug fixes (including playing as a Nether, which was always pretty buggy

GAME SUMMARY:
Nether is a fast-paced survival game that forces you to make quick life-saving decisions in an unforgiving environment. In this post-apocalyptic urban world, death is waiting around every corner, at the top of high-rise buildings, and in the grasp of powerful teleporting creatures known as 'Nethers'. These creatures and the other players are real challenges to overcome, requiring tactical gameplay, awareness, stealth, and cooperation. To navigate this high-tension environment, you must use skill and cunning in order to scavenge, trade, craft or loot for food, weapons, supplies, and other resources necessary to stay alive in a desolate and dangerous city. Team up with other survivors and take advantage of group play, as a tribe, to complete treacherous world objectives, or play as a lone wolf in an attempt to endure the hostile environment. In the end you must decide whether to Prey or Pray.

Key Features


EXPLORE
The game's landscape is a beautifully conceived vision of a post apocalyptic Chicago, ravaged by disaster and time. Almost every low and high-rise building can be individually explored in a cityscape that stretches 150 blocks. Beyond the city lies the Wastelands, an unforgiving desolate landscape that is slowly sinking into the earth.

SURVIVE, CRAFT, TRADE, LOOT AND SHOOT
Start off, armed only with a kitchen knife and scavenge your way through an environment on a daily battle to stay alive. Beware the Nether, poor mutated souls who roam the city in search of human flesh. Scavenge for food and water to stay nourished, and search for useful items that could be crafted into makeshift weapons to help in your battle for life. Hunt and kill Nether to trade their body parts to the mysterious Cult located in the few markets that scatter the city. Over time, build up your skills and earn rewards for surviving each precious new day. But always beware of the other survivors who may be only one moment away from death, and see killing you and looting your possessions as their only salvation.

TRIBES AND TERRITORY WARS
Find safety in numbers by joining a tribe. Only tribes can capture and own territory, and the urban landscape is the perfect setting for turf domination. Compete with rival tribes in territory wars for control of the city by capturing strategic landmarks to reap resources and experience; prove your dominance over all other tribes. Spy on rival tribes or infiltrate and kill them by playing as a Nether. Ambush them from above by swooping in for the kill using the wing suit. Tribes change the survival experience by establishing a true social construct, with all the consequences of behavior that you would expect in the real world. Your actions have real repercussions enforced organically through reputation and standing.

PLAYER AND GROUP MISSIONS
Players can complete an assortment of individual or group missions to earn money, experience and reputation. Perform vital supply runs between the markets, work with your tribe to take down the swarms of Nether lead by the vicious boss Reaper that sporadically surge to attack neighborhoods, or keep the creatures out of the Safezones by working in groups to repair the anti-nether devices when they fail.

CHARACTER CUSTOMIZATION
Nether offers a wide variety of character customization and allows you to play as a male or female character. There is a huge selection of cosmetic items and player taunts to assert your individuality along with entire outfits to play roles like survivalist, soldier and biker - or even just play in your underwear.

I bought this game on EA because it looked like it had great potential.The first time I played it I thought it had an amazing amount of detail for a EA game.You could tell it needed a lot memory optimization because the game engine struggled to run smoothly.But it was after all EA.What I really enjoyed was the eerie atmosphere the game created.The look of the damaged and largely abandoned City was just so very well done.Unfortunately there have not been any updates for months and from what I understand theres not going to be.As far as I'm concerned this game could have been really popular with a huge following.It really is a shame they dropped the ball.Dev this game could have made you rich and famous,and not in the Sean Murray kind of way either.I think the games community may help keep it up and running for a while.I really hate to see this game abandoned.Its still playable and its $4.99 as of this review.I can't recommend it at that price.Like I said it appears to have been abandoned.

This game had potential, and it was sort of fun initially... but it was and still is a waste of money. Not to mention it's dead and abandoned.

If this game were free to play, optimized, still being developed and not completely dead, then I could possibly recommend it as a casual KoS trash game, but that isn't the case.

Please do not waste your time or money.

This game came out at the same time Space Engineers and I bought them both, betting on the promisses the dev teams made. Nether was a bit more expensive than Space Engineers at the time so I had a little more hope for the game than SE.

Now 2 years later, SE has improved ridiculously, keeping touch with the community and updating every week, while this game has barely improved at all and the devs just seem to be interested in renaming the game every year and not actually updating anything.

This game runs embarassingly bad for its graphics. Level design is amateur at best, gameplay boring and pointless, shooting any gun seems to have a spread of a mile long and the meelee weapons are as cheaply programmed as humanly possible. And the worst thing about this game is that it has microtransactions and ridiculously long cooldowns.

So in conclusion, as a suggestion to the developers of this game I think they should maybe learn the game design part of making games and maybe start with a side scroller or something.
