What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to make the best game possible and Early Access gives us the opportunity to get feedback quickly. Working with an involved community behind us is the best way to make the game grow in the right direction. We have a roadmap planned with lots of content and updates and we want to make as few missteps as possible with your help.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We would like to have a full release with all the narrative included between 9 and 12 months after the Early Access launch. This is our plan - but we also understand that development bumps may appear and delay our schedule. We are working with approximate data.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We will be adding levels, new murkors, bosses, quests, playable characters and multiplayer during early access development. In addition, the final version will have narrative elements that will tie it all together.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version contains an initial section of the game with 2 fully playable levels with enemies, quests and bosses. The 1.0 version aims to have 5 unique levels.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will be increased as we advance in the Early Access. If you are curious about the title Early Access is a good opportunity to acquire it at a lower price.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We want the community to be key and be part of the evolution of this title. Die After Sunset is a modular game in constant growth and the community will be an important piece to verify that we are going in the right direction. Our intention is to make constant updates and consult you through Steam Community Forums and Discord to ensure the shot.”

About This Game

The year is 2120. An alien race referred to as the ‘Murkors’ have invaded every corner of earth with their unrivalled power and… rubber duck hats. The resistance holds out to prevent the extinction of humanity, but not for long. It’s up to you as a defender of earth to level up and take on the murkor hordes… before the sun sets.

No run is ever the same in this action-packed, adrenaline-fueled roguelite shooter. Start in a new location every time you play, complete randomised quests, make yourself stronger with items you collect and take on gigantic bosses at the end of each level.

Pick between three vastly unique characters to start your run with. Each character comes equipped with a standard primary weapon and special attack. Choose wisely between sharp-shooter April, half-man-half-cyborg, machine-gun wielding Rido and… Hune, a murkor experiment gone wrong.

You will be met with murkors shortly after spawning into Waikiki Beach. Be alert, defender… and FIGHT IN THE LIGHT. Murkors draw their power from the shadows, growing in size and strength. Strategically position yourself so the sun is always beaming down on you, and your enemies. (Sun cream is supplied as standard issue).

Open chests and complete missions to power up and equip new weapons. Collect as much as you can before the sun sets to give you the best possible chance in fighting murkor bosses. Items can give you anything from the ability to double jump, to a weapon like the refreshing ray – which is not-so refreshing for the murkors.

Collect ‘Mucus’ dropped by Murkors as they are defeated - this will become the currency you can bank. With ‘Mucus’ in the bank you can progress level-trees and make yourself stronger on every run. That’s right, defender… Death is not the end for you! (Or so we’ve been told to tell you. Just go and defend earth).
