About This Game

It all started when you left…
In "It Comes In Waves", you'll play as a lone outcast on a dangerous desert planet, trying to grow a specimen to bring to The Sanctuary. How can you grow anything in a world this barren?

It is a very personal, experimental and minimalist game.


The World
Eremar Prime is a harsh and unforgiving place. You'll need to scavenge for resources, fight off raiders and make tough choices to survive. You can also visit the local town (but don't expect a welcoming crowd).


Gameplay
"It Comes In Waves" is a minimalist game that combines exploration, combat, and resource management in a unique way. Water is the main resource. It constantly evaporates if you are out in the desert, so you will need to collect more or improve your equipment’s efficiency. Otherwise, you WILL die.

If you die, there is no reloading. You have to start fresh.
