What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are an independent studio comprised of a small team of developers who are also pc gamers at heart. As gamers, we want to develop the best game we could for the enjoyment of all gamers including ourselves. Since we are a small team, we are not able to test Venatio with huge communities without early access. For that reason, it’s crucial to get feedback from our fellow gamers during the development process. Also, we are planning to add more content to the game before the full release. Thus, in order to be successful in optimising the game properly and adding accurate content to Venatio, we are starting with early access and expecting invaluable contribution from community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Currently, we are aiming to release the full version on March 2022.”

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

“We are planning to add, at least, 2 more scavengers, 3 more weapons, 5 more puzzle mechanics and more variations for the bunker before the full release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We provide players with four different character skins, one scavenger, four main and three auxiliary weapons, and two pieces of equipment to pick from. The bunker structure contains progressive puzzles with over 30 settlement combinations.”

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

“As a token of our appreciation to players who support us during the early access, we will maintain a discounted price until the full release.”

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

“Through the community discussions on Steam and our server on Discord, they will be able to participate in every step of the process.”

About This Game

The box. You unlock Pandora's box and find yourself within.

Due to its own essence, humankind is flawed. One destroys its environment while trying to complete himself. Tell us, the first of humankind, what will be the fate of this battle? Will we tear everything down in consequence of our wicked existence until we forget who we are, or will we find our essence in the arm of the apple tree where everything is buried as we fall through time?

In the vicious cycle of human history, will you be the hunter or the hunted? Venatio is a multiplayer action-horror game that lets you seal your own fate by managing your time and cooperating with your teammates.

Become a Hunter. You can complete quests, which require teamwork and are located in the bunker, in order to hunt the ancestors easily with obtaining Tesla Weaponry. Besides, it is always in your hands to jump into action with your WWII exclusive equipment instead of sticking to the questline. However, ancestors, boosted with lunar eclipse, are going to make things more difficult for you.

Hunt the humans. In this bloody war, you can take your place as an Ancestor. They will call you a “monster” and underestimate your powers. Do not worry. You can surprise them with your psychic abilities. In fact, you can even take control of their pathetic minds.

To hunt, or not to be hunted, that is the question.

Key Features

  • Variety in architecture.Enjoy an unique experience each time you play thanks to over 30 combinations of settlements.
  • Authentic ambience. Feel the atmosphere of a realistic environment and gunfire.
  • Equipment that has left its imprint on history.Determine your tactical approach with the era's weapons and then go on the scavenger hunt.
  • Scavenger abilities.Indoles' most powerful skill is to manipulate other people's minds by taking control of them. Take over your friends' minds and prevent them from completing missions.
  • Multiplayer co-op. This game is fully reliant on teamwork. Join the game with your friends and show your solidarity.
  • In-game communication. With the help of your radios, establish in-game communication. Because of the game's nature, third-party software is not recommended.
  • In-Game Balance. Complete in-game missions that require you to split up with your teammates so that the scavenger can hunt down hunters one by one. Hunters will achieve high-efficiency weaponry when they solve puzzles by splitting the workload among themselves in order to receive power-ups

The greatest and the most catastrophic war in history has come to end, and only Venatio remains. Which side of the medallion you will be on is completely up to you.

The future was more secured than the past.

To hunt, we are hunting. In every bullet, we strive to make sense of our actions. The fall of fate, the rise of depression. The blind night puts a curtain over our eyes to keep our screaming conscience at bay. Do they not realize this is the end of the world? We see death in reflections, and it seeks for our eyeblink. We've arrived at the point where we're battling it till we die. As the moon's leaves descended, we jumped off the train of history. We are the future's destiny.
Those who hide behind a false honor and whisper in the woods, the age of ancestors has passed.

Get 4 different pre-customised skins for your hunter character. Choose one of the renowned weapons such as the period-exclusive M3 Grease, Tommy, M 1918, and M1 Garand and go hunting through the depths of the night. Use your radios, flares, and flashlights to guide the darkness.

Indoles: Kill the pain

Truth, are you talking about reality? Reality is this power slipping through my fingers. I am the one who dwells in the depths of your soul and mind. Those who don't know how to forget every now and again perish from memory stress, you know that? No, no. Don't think about death. The image of death is a good dance companion. What about to listen a song? Can you hear the sound? Look, tick-tock-tick-tock, time is ticking! Keep an eye out for shadows; I'll be waiting for you.

Do you believe the war is over in the mind, rather than with the guns? The Mind-controller, hidden in the forest's shadows, is at your disposal. Contribute to the game's progress by captivating your opponents' minds with our character, built for the players who say “Manipulation is my thing!”

Although Indoles is a close-combat character, one's ranged abilities and rapid movement speed make one ideal for chasing down your opponents.

"This is war", said the great ancestor.

What a futile endeavor. We kept an eye on you, trusted you, and left you with a wonderful world. However, you? You, poor humankind, have succumbed to your conceit. You have spilt your own brother's blood, and drawn a line in the earth, and claimed what didn't belong to you. With the promise of a good future, you fooled yourself and sold your soul to the matter. You grew up, and as you matured, you launched war on those who were different from you. We accept your war. We are approaching, and we will catch you off guard when you are alone with your fears and feel the most alone. Until there is no one left to remember you and you were never born.

Become one of the Ancestors, whose mysteries and how long they have existed are beyond our comprehension. With your psychic abilities, dehumanize the forest and restore the order you previously had. It entirely depends on you to save modern life from destroying nature and your species.
