What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Being a solo developer, it's easy to get tunnel vision and miss some things that might be obvious to players coming in with a fresh perspective. For this reason, I'd like to use early access to get feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I would estimate roughly 3-4 months”

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

“I'd like to add more variety of side quests, items, workshop support and achievements depending on the feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“When the game releases into early access, it will contain the core survival, crafting, farming, mining, construction, recruiting and trading mechanics. The game should be fully playable through the main quest line and the two end-game quest lines (barring any bugs). Based on my testing, the main quest will take 10-15 hours to finish.”

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

“I plan on slightly increasing the price after early access.”

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

“I have a discord set up for the game and will be monitoring the Steam forums for any feedback.”

Consistent Map Transition

Lore/Backstory

Pawsecuted exists in an alternate timeline that diverges from ours after the first cloning of sheep in 1984. This breakthrough led to huge advances in gene editing technology, and created a world with zero ethical restrictions on modifying DNA of non-human mammals.

There was massive demand from people who wanted pets with humanlike qualities. Even wild animals were being modified to become suitable as household companions. By the mid-2010's, consumers could conveniently purchase gene mods giving their pets abilities such as speech, upright movement and even higher intelligence. Almost every household had multiple pets, modded for everything from entertaining children to construction work.

In the 2020's, mammals started demanding equal rights to humans. Their demand was simple - nobody 'owns' anybody else, all mammals are free to choose their own destiny. Humanity pushed back, and the Great Mammal War for independence began. War lasted for over a decade and the world was left devastated. By the 2050's, the humans had all but been annihilated and forgotten. The only reminders of their rule are the ruined cities, towns and villages left behind.

Your story begins in the distant aftermath of this war. You are a life-long convict in a work camp run by a zealous Koala. This is all you've ever known and all you expected to ever know. Until one day...
