What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I am a solo developer who loves turn-based roguelike games. I’ve been working for a long time to create a unique turn-based play experience set in a zombie apocalypse. I have implemented the core play experience of turn-based, grid system, complex condition management, scavenging, and survival. However, the process of adding more content, improving art and sound, and adding other convenient features remains. I want to do this with the players in Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I plan to release a full version in late 2022 or early 2023.”

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

“The Early Access version contains fewer types of places, items, occupations, and survival skills than planned in the full version. During the Early Access period, I will add various elements to increase a replay value and balance the added content.
Since the Early Access version focuses on implementing the core gameplay, art and sound quality may not be satisfactory. More polished art and sound will add to the immersion of survival in the zombie apocalypse in the full version.
I have tested the Early Access version several times, but you may encounter bugs and other issues nonetheless. I will fix these issues before the official release.
I plan to add Steam Cloud, Steam Achievements, and multiple languages in the full version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All the core game systems are implemented. You can experience the whole process from creating a survivor to arriving at the Terminus, the game’s goal. The Early Access version contains randomly generated maps and places, dozens of randomly placed furniture, items, zombies, and NPCs you can encounter. There are also ten occupations that distinguish the core traits of survivor characters, which I will add more over Early Access.”

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

“I plan to increase the price upon official launch.”

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

“Leave your comments on the Steam Community! I will give as many answers as possible. Your feedback will play an important role in deciding what content to add during the development process.”

About This Game

Terminus is a turn-based roguelike game set in a zombie apocalypse. The zombie outbreak strikes, and you seek out the Terminus where survivors gathered. The goal of the game is only one thing to survive and reach the Terminus. The location of the Terminus can be found by listening to the radio or following the railroad tracks. Survive the hunger, the cold, and the zombies to arrive at the Terminus!

Key Features

  • Randomly Generated Map - Each game generates a map and all places randomly. Visit places like grocery stores, restaurants, pharmacies, libraries, police stations, hardware stores, electronics stores, and more and search for the supplies you need.
  • Turn-Based Play - All movement, search, and attack actions are on a turn basis. Think carefully and act before you pass the turn.
  • Various Survivor Traits - Survivors start with ten occupations with each trait, six stats, and different preferences. Make the most of your stats and occupation traits to survive.
  • Various Items - There are dozens of items that can help you survive. Find and use food, clothing, medicine, weapons, tools, electronics, and more.
  • Status Management - You have to keep managing your HP, AP, and four conditions. With each turn, your condition deteriorates, and you have to keep finding ways to manage it.
  • Permadeath - You have only one life. If you are bitten by a zombie or your HP reaches 0 due to worsening conditions, you die, and the game ends immediately.

Note: The current English translation may not be smooth. I will continue to improve it during the Early Access period.
