What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We chose Early Access to let the community shape how the game will evolve over time. We appreciate player feedback and plan to use it to create the best experience possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Depending on player feedback, content requests, and our personal goals for the game's final state, we plan for FOREWARNED to remain in Early Access for approximately 1-2 years.”

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

“Between Early Access and release, we plan to incrementally add a significant amount of content, features, and bug fixes, including:
  • new Mejai AI with unique behaviors and abilities
  • a plethora of additional loot in the form of relics, lore pages, and rare artifacts
  • a bunch of new equipment and upgrades
  • additional archaeological tasks to complete
  • further variety of rooms within the procedurally generated ruins
  • more locations, puzzles, and challenges
  • increased horror and excitements

We also plan on integrating the most desired features from community feedback!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“FOREWARNED has significantly progressed since its initial Early Access launch and now includes the following core gameplay mechanics:
  • Full PC & VR crossplay supported
  • In-game voice chat (proximity and global)
  • Public and private lobbies
  • Customizable character creation
  • Procedurally generated ruins for infinite tomb layout possibilities
  • Equipment purchasing and upgrading
  • Collectible treasure (Gold, relics, rare artifacts, lore pages, ushabti, etc.)
  • Unique AI, each with particular strengths and weaknesses.
  • Archaeological objectives to complete during each expedition
  • So much more!

    Each 'round' can take anywhere between 10-30 minutes, depending on your strategy and desire to explore and collect. With procedurally-generated levels, randomized AI, the number of collectibles, possible upgrades to your equipment, and other challenges, we estimate the game's replayability will be high, increasing with each iteration on the road to Release 1.0.

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

“The price will likely remain the same during Early Access, but may increase at the time of full release depending on the amount of content in the game.”

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

“Community feedback is critical for development of our game, so we'd love to hear from you. Join our Discord server and let us know what you think!

“FOREWARNED could be VR's scariest game yet”

“Forewarned is a new four-player survival co-op horror game...with a few of its own truly creative twists on the new ghost-hunting formula that benefit scares and immersion considerably.”

“Ahhh!! I need my mummy”

About This Game

Having long studied ancient Egyptian lore, you’re intrigued by recent reports of structures appearing in the Sahara Desert via new satellite imaging. The locations seem familiar to you on a map, as they correspond to burial sites of the elite Mejai, powerful warriors blessed with unnaturally long life by the high-priest Akar for the purpose of protecting the pharaoh. However, a blessing in life may be a curse in death… Ancient texts mention these warriors turned mad exceeding the bounds of mortality, bringing death and ruin to those around them. To stop them, legend tells of a group of brave Egyptians who lured each Mejai into separate tombs using invaluable relics, and then trapped them inside forever…

While this story may be a myth, you feel obligated to investigate, as the historical and monetary value of such a discovery would be beyond your wildest dreams. But be careful - if the legends are true, the Mejai have been sulking in rage all this time, yearning to wreak havoc on humanity as revenge for their imprisonment.

Gather your team of archaeologists and treasure hunters in this co-op thriller and discover the truth behind the legend. Play solo, with a group of friends, or find a public match online.

Take advantage of every tool at your disposal to navigate through ancient Egyptian ruins and survive the perils within. Alternatively, you can choose to provide intel to your teammates from outside the ruins in the safety of your excavation tent, using such tools as the radar system or motion sensor array to detect activity.

The main objective of the game is to search the ruins for each relic that was used to lure and trap the cursed Mejai many millennia ago. As you traverse the tombs, observe the phenomena around you to identify the Mejai while it's in its spiritual form before it assumes its physical form. Each playthrough, or round, will include one main relic to collect, as well as numerous archaeological tasks to complete and loot to collect in the form of gold, lore, and rare artifacts.

You and your team will have to decide how to accomplish these challenges.

  • Split up to cover more ground, or stay as a group to increase survivability.
  • Get in and out, or let curiosity get the better of you and explore every path to reveal the mysteries and lore of the Mejai.
  • Give in to greed and linger in the darkness to find treasure of unparalleled worth, or be content leaving with your life.

Be weary of whatever choice you make, as you and your team will soon discover you are not alone beneath the cursed sands…

  • Procedurally generated levels and randomized AI to ensure no two playthroughs are ever the same and that you'll always have a unique experience
  • Encounter several different Mejai, each with unique characteristics and abilities
  • Utilize your choice of archaeological equipment to increase your chances of survival

  • PC & VR Crossplay Supported
    Play in PC mode, or play in VR mode for increased immersion with haptic feedback.
  • Positional Voice Chat
    Strategize with your teammates with in-game voice chat.
  • Loot Collection System
    Use your collected loot to upgrade your equipment and purchase more powerful tools.
  • Embrace the Curse of the Mejai
    When you die, you will have the option to return as a servant of the Mejai. Will you hold on to a semblance of your former self and help the remaining survivors, or demonstrate loyalty to your new master?
