What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want the Community to play a bigger part in Corpse Mansion's development to help us with finding bugs, game testing, and other normally arduous tasks. We hope this can streamline development for us while providing us with constructive criticism from the community to help us make the gameplay experience more enjoyable for everyone.

Considering we're a small indie dev team that's building a massive game without a triple A studio's budget, Early Access is a great way for us to just get our game out there while building a player base now as opposed to waiting for the full release later.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate the game will see a full release by the end of the year.”

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

“We plan to have a fully fleshed out interactive world for you to explore and survive in. Most things will keep the same mechanics where drawers, boxes, etc. will always be searchable. The story will be concluded, and several side missions will be added to the game for the player to explore.

We also want to include another gameplay mode called "Challenge", where you will be able to take on specific challenges in familiar places the player has been throughout the story. The stages will be unlocked by progressing through the main story.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core battle system is 100% complete, and no more additions are planned at this time. A lot of the code is already done for the game, and now the team is solely focusing on finishing the storyline and expanding the game world. You can't find every weapon in the game yet, but a fair number of them are already obtainable in the current version. 

Right now, there is a fully implemented survival system. Players have to find food, water, and somewhere to sleep just to stay alive. You can complete the Prologue, Chapter 1, and Chapter 2 in the early access version. More chapters are actively being developed for the game, so please look forward to them. Finally, players can officially attach their gun parts to weapons at a workbench in the game. (must have learned the weapons' associated blueprint first)”

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

“We want to be as fair and transparent as possible with our players. We will not be offering more than 30% off during the early access release time. In addition to this, we will not be changing the base price until the game is fully released.”

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

“We involve the community in a number of ways. The first and best place to go to is our game's dedicated social media account to get all the latest and greatest information. Occasionally, we may offer some raffles for free game keys to people that are following us on Twitter. You can also sign up to our dedicated website for Fundthemental Games to access the support forum, among other things. Finally, we also engage with our customers in discussion here on Steam.

About This Game

Synopsis


Cole Woods, a seasoned detective working for the Hell City Police Department, finds himself in a predicament with an unlikely ally, the Commissioners' daughter, Elena Morgan. Together they fight through hordes of the dead, and Cole must keep Elena alive if he has any hope of finding the Commissioner before it's too late.

Unravel the mystery of the Z-virus and uncover the conspiracies that lie within it. The decisions Cole makes can impact the story or even an NPC's fate. The dead are not the only threat to Cole. He needs to eat, rest, and drink just to stay alive. Survive this cruel world in this action-horror survival game with over 32+ weapons to find and hundreds of items to loot throughout the game.

Current Features


  • Fully interactable environment : Use weapons that have the "Tool" trait to do more than just attack or use a rope to climb up a ledge. Search everything from vehicles to houses, drawers, boxes, cupboards, fridges, stoves, shelves and much more.
  • Impressive arsenal of weapons to obtain. Light enemies on fire with a flamethrower or blow them to pieces with an RPG, you choose how you want to fight this epidemic.
  • Crisp and accurate sound effects for everything in the game. For example, when you move, store, sell or drop an item, it plays its own unique corresponding sound effect.
  • Decisions impact the flow of the story and ultimately the ending too. Save the citizens from their demise to gain access to more resources. You can keep track of who you have managed to save on your portable data system. (must have unlocked data in main menu by obtaining the HPD Scanner)
  • Slot based limited inventory system for you to manage, with containers for you to store your rare items in (must own a safe house for storage containers).
  • Realistic Shops : Shop owners don't have unlimited stock; items Sold to them will remain in that person's shop stock for sale indefinitely until it's sold again. Shop owners will also get a new stock or re-stock of items for sale as the story expands. Doing missions for them can also change what they sell.
  • Survival system where players have to manage Cole's Hunger, Thirst and Rest. You can obtain food and water from various sources in the game. Players will also be required to find a bed to sleep in to restore their Rest stat or risk passing out from exhaustion.
  • Become your own Gunsmith! You'll need a special item called a "Blueprint" first which teaches you how to repair and attach gun parts to a particular weapon. Then you can attach gun parts at any Gunsmithing Workbench to upgrade a weapon's traits. Such as but not limited to Headshot Chance, Capacity, Damage, Durability, Knockback, Stun, ect.
  • Complex and unique dialogue selection system. Players will be able to know which things they have already said to an NPC to avoid unnecessary repeated dialogue (faded out grey). When options have a permanent effect on the game they will be highlighted in red to indicate this to the player. The same is true for green but in addition always satisfies the conditions of something.
  • You can also repair a weapons durability but beware of it costing more material (Aluminum) to repair the better your gun's upgrades are.
  • Finally, you can create ammunition with gunpowder at a Gunsmith Workbench once you have learned the associated blueprint.

Planned Features


  • With enough support we can consider adding weather to the game world based on what time of year it is. So in the winter the streets of Hell City would be covered in snow ect.
  • Make the shops even more dynamic and change the Sale/Sell price of weapons based on their current upgrades attached. Right now weapons cannot be sold back to vendors because of their complexity. Parts can be sold normally.
  • A completely different mode of gameplay where you would select challenges to complete. More stages and challenges would get unlocked as you progressed through the games story mode.
  • A massive city to explore and loot items from. Suburbs, slums and downtown areas should all be covered.
