About This Game

“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” – H.P. Lovecraft

The year is 2078 and mankind’s discovery of near-lightspeed fold engine propulsion has empowered mankind's Osiris expeditionary missions to the Gliese 581 system. You are the second colonization team sent by the U.N.E. (United Nations of Earth) to study potential habitable planets when your spacecraft malfunctions braking from light speed, forcing an emergency landing on the planet’s surface.

Overcome the dangers of an environment with little oxygen and ever-changing weather elements by building a central base, expanding the structure further with modular units to grow food, create research centers, manufacturing bays and more. To further advance technologies and thrive on the planet, traverse into a world filled equally with alien beauty and terrors that will freeze your blood. Osiris is a beautiful game that uniquely combines inventive crafting, curious exploration, and skillful FPS combat gameplay that highlights the beauty and horror of exploring a foreign, yet gorgeous alien system - an experience that's neither safe nor for the timid.

Key Features

Light-Year Visual Difference: See the highest graphic quality in any sci-fi game in the genre, with high attention to detail to texture, particle, and lighting effects creating a frightening gorgeous world.

Fluid Animation System: An advanced IK system powers over 200 amazing fluid player movements and a diverse range of terrifying alien creature animations.

Survive, Craft, Research and Thrive: Gather resources and materials to adapt to the alien system, build modular structures to grow food and create manufacturing bays, research new technologies to upgrade gear and build new vehicles, and explore the environment to discover new resources and secrets to expand and thrive in this brave alien world.

Multiplayer Colonization: Work together with online players to build a prospering colony and together defend against threatening alien species, survive environmental phenomenon including meteor showers, and attacks from other online player colonies.

Explore The Planet And Beyond: Learn what wonders and horrors lie on the alien planet and explore underground dungeons for unique potential discoveries. In time, build spacecraft to launch into space and travel to other planets in the solar system.

Join Us In Our Early Access Development

There's no one way to develop any game, and Osiris: New Dawn is no different. Over our development process we've expanded to include multiple branches that aid in our development process and while allowing to check out various levels of completion on experimental feature sets.

Stable Branch: The main version and most stable version.

Behind The Scenes Experience Branch: A selection of feature demos, mini games, and art showcases that take us little time to create, but allow us to share fresh content with you while we onboard these features into the stable branch.

Open Beta Branches: New experimental branches that we share to gauge feedback, interest, and stress test new features and ideas.

Closed Beta Branch: A small selection of players who are available to jump into conference call play sessions to stress test multiplayer systems with us in real time.
