“You’ll die often, and you’ll die quickly.”
Wireframe Magazine

“It’s an RTS for our age, combining simple controls with complex, sometimes obscure systems, drawing on long-developing real-world anxieties and sci-fi solutions for its themes.”
Paste Magazine

“The main thing that immediately distinguishes Chaotic Era apart from its sci-fi RTS contemporaries is the game's distinctive art style; a minimalist latticework of sleek wire-frames, pulsing topographic texture maps, and white hot explosions”

About This Game

An immersive, high-octane strategy game that places you in command of the last shreds of humanity—marooned in deep space and hunted by vicious aliens. Played entirely from behind the controls of a future computer interface sitting high above the battlefield.

Chaotic Era is a highly-stylized grimdark action RTS, following a stranded human crew on an alien planet, with a unique, completely monochrome art direction inspired by the computer screens from movies like Alien, Blade Runner, and Starship Troopers.

It’s a game of quick decisions, devastating consequences, and endless panic as you struggle to stay alive in humanity’s hellish future. A fast-paced and unforgiving reimagining of the golden era of real-time strategy, Chaotic Era has been featured in publications like TechCrunch, Polygon, Wireframe Magazine, and more.

After an incredibly well received Early Access release in January 2023, this is the official full version of Chaotic Era, featuring tons of new features, content, and gameplay. A fresh and terrifying vision for new and existing fans alike, expanding massively on the previously available Early Access release.

"We left it all behind. Old Earth and its doomed children. Titan, Io, the floating cities of Venus. Mars' cursed wastelands..."

In the late 28th century, as the Solar System collapses, Earth’s corporate warlords launch thousands of starships in search of a new home, but the reality of deep space is far more horrifying than anyone could have imagined...

Take command of your shipwrecked human crew, scavenge for resources, and prepare to fight for survival. Or choose to play as humanity's alien tormentors, a shadowy species armed with horrifying bioorganic weaponry. Hunt humanity from world to world as you build gateways into this universe from the next.

In the world of Chaotic Era, energy is scarce.

Both humans and aliens need to use their reserves strategically to power life support, build weapons and defences, and research new technology; carefully and quickly transferring energy between their units in real-time.
