What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Steam Early Access program is one of the most effective tools for contributing to the development of a video game. If you support us you will make a decisive contribution to the development of Vorax and you can help us create one of the most exciting hardcore horror survival games ever conceived.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Vorax project is designed to be supported for a long time. A rough estimate right now is at least a year. We have dozens of gameplay ideas in the prototype phase that we would like to bring to the attention of our fans and furthermore the world of Vorax will be enriched with additional quests that will support the main narrative.”

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

“Early Access Version will be released when it will be possible to complete the main story (and therefore "beat the game").
We plan to include in final version the main questline , several additional quests and new locations to explore in the large 10 square kilometer map.

Furthermore, many gameplay elements are planned in the early access development phase which are now in the prototype phase and which we prefer to focus on only once we have received feedback from the players.
This is an absolutely non-complete list of all the things that we plan to include:

  • First-person surveillance drone and kamikaze drone mechanics. To be found in game or craftable.
  • Flamethrower and fire-spreading weapons mechanics. Dynamics of fire spread on enemies and objects.
  • mechanics of reflector light and intense light sources which stun/blind photosensitive enemies. Craftable. Need to be powered by energy network.
  • New vehicles with emphasys on military ones
  • New secondary bosses
  • New monsters new puzzles and new Npcs.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early access version actually ( November 2023- Version 0.6.x ) has approximately 70% of the main quest line currently playable.
It will release ( Estimate: Q1 2024 ) once it will reach 0.9 when the main questline will be finished and fully playable and therefore will be possible to complete the main story.

Actually ( version 0.6 ) the game features:

  • A large and detailed game environment on a 10 square km map.
  • a complete village you can explore plus dozens of houses and secondary locations.
  • 10 diferent enemy types each one with its unique attack pattern ( more to come )
  • 4 Bosses and 3 secondary ones.
  • Buildable barricades, fences, traps, sticky bombs, explosive bombs, molotov.
  • Craftable tools and melee weapons / cutting trees and bushes mechanics
  • Hunting and cooking mechanics / Healing mechanics
  • A day-night cycle affecting gameplay with most enemies being photosensitive and drakness affecting your mental sanity.
  • dynamic weather system affecting gameplay with fog and infected rain dynamic
  • 3 different Driveable vehicles
  • 10 different ranged weapons and over a dozen of melee ones

You can experiment most of it in our downloadable demo that we regulary update.
We encourage you to play it and report feedback in the Community Hub.

The core software powering demo and full game is exactly the same, the only differences being that demo map is just 1km sq ( one fraction of the main world ) and most weapons, enemy types and locations are not present in the demo.

An experienced survival horror player can complete the demo in 2-3 hours.”

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

“Yes. The price will increase once the game leaves Early Access program.”

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

About This Game

Craft, Fortify, Survive.



In the heart of the Mediterranean, a once-tranquil island now harbors a chilling secret. VORAX, an open-world survival horror experience, plunges you into a nightmarish scenario where survival is a relentless struggle against the unknown. A lethal pathogen has swept through the local population, transforming this picturesque setting into a breeding ground for terror.
Your ordeal begins with a mission gone horribly awry. As you crash-land onto this forsaken island, you find yourself trapped in an escalating nightmare. Alone, with minimal resources and a meager survival kit, your battle for survival is just beginning.

Scavenge and Craft: With limited supplies, you must improvise to create tools, weapons, and shelter. The art of survival demands ingenuity and resilience.

Seek Safe Haven: Construct barricades, fences, and traps in a variety of buildings. Your temporary shelter is your fortress against the horrors that lurk in the shadows.

Unravel the Mystery: As you delve deeper, the dark origins of the virus and its grotesque effects on its hosts emerge. What secrets does this island hide?

Dynamic Environment: Explore diverse landscapes – urban sprawls, haunting sewers, enigmatic caves. Each location holds its own dangers and mysteries.

Unique Adversaries: Face off against foes with unpredictable attack patterns. Every encounter is a test of your survival instincts.

Tactical Advantage: Utilize a military-grade tactical helmet with an integrated HUD for a strategic edge.

Realistic Survival Mechanics: Hunt, cook, treat injuries, and manage resources in a world where every decision can mean the difference between life and death.

The Elements Against You: A day-night cycle and dynamic weather system add layers of complexity to your survival strategy.

Mental and Physical Endurance: Overcome the psychological toll of isolation and the physical demands of survival.

Transportation and Repair: Navigate the island with various vehicles, maintaining them to ensure your mobility and survival.

Do You Have the Grit to Survive?


In VORAX, your wits, will, and courage are the only things standing between life and a gruesome fate. Prepare to face a relentless enemy that hunts you relentlessly. Can you survive the horrors of the island and uncover its darkest secrets? The challenge awaits.
