About This Game

We Are The Caretakers is an afrofuturist squad management RPG. Assemble an arcane team of protectors in squad-building systems inspired by Darkest Dungeon and XCOM. Defend the endangered animals your world relies on in strategic auto-battle combat. Define your approach to a global resistance with every action in a modern, sci-fi take on Ogre Battle. We Are The Caretakers is a strategy game fusion like nothing you’ve seen before.



  • ORIGINAL AFROFUTURIST UNIVERSE: Former Activision-Blizzard artist Anthony Jones brings breathtaking afrofuturist style and human empathy to a complex sci-fi world.
  • REPUTATION SYSTEM: Every action affects how others see the Caretakers. Do they fear you? Or will they support your quest to protect the endangered Raun, and decide the fate of the world?
  • SQUAD BUILDING: Assemble up to 9 squads of characters with diverse traits, weaknesses, abilities, and personalities. Train and upgrade your Caretakers across 20+ unique job classes.
  • COMPLEX CONFLICT: An innovative combination of autobattling combat and permanent consequences shows the messy reality of animal conservation.



  • TAILORED GENERATION: Our new approach to procedural generation means you get infinite, interesting levels, that still feel hand-made.
  • NUANCED NARRATIVE: In our morally-complex world, the individuals outside your squad matter as much as the rangers you deploy on each map.
  • CULTURAL DIPLOMACY: Meet international and community leaders inside your sci-fi HQ. Balance their conflicting demands to save our world.
  • RIGOROUS RESEARCH: Guide the direction and specialties of your organization. From field-level technology upgrades, to large-scale speculative R&D, your decisions have a global impact.
  • YOU GET A BABY RAUN: It will nuzzle against your bed long after it grows too large to reasonably do so. It is adorable.

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

The game has a stylized art style, however to build empathy and support our game's animal conservation narrative, there are a few moments that show our fantasy animals injured, killed, or in distress.
