What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“State of Extinction is a new take on your traditional role playing game. Instead of your typical Wizards, Rouges and Barbarians based classes, we feel we are bringing a, "breath of early man fresh air" to the genre with our prehistoric background and early man classes. We have already developed most of the game with an exciting mature based story using elements you typically do not find in a, "choice" based RPG. But, before we release the final version, we want to make sure State of Extinction is truly meeting the needs of our consumers by providing a game that is challenging yet rewarding. To do this, we need your help feedback and support as we validate some of our game design/development decisions in Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are targeting 1Q or 2Q 2017 for the full release version of the game. As mentioned, most of the game mechanics have already been completed. However, until we are happy with what we’ve got and are delivering a very high quality product, we will keep working on State of Extinction until it meets your standards. In addition, depending on your feedback of new features and what we actually implement per your requests and suggestions may affect our development cycle and final release date. Our main goal is to bring the best possible experience for your entertainment.”

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

“The early access version is fully playable! Most mechanics are already implemented and the player will be able to grow Intellect (Level) to a certain point. The final version will continue the story introducing game mechanics such as:

  • More Boss Encounters
  • More Random Encounters
  • Ability to Choose Your Calling (Class)
  • Addition Regions to Explore
  • More Primitive and Ancient Bestiary
  • Even More Features (We don't want to spoil)

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version is fully playable made with high quality and limited bugs. While we can't promise you may find a bug or two roaming around the cave floor, we can promise that we will do our best to get that bug removed as fast as possible.”

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

“There will be a discount given for our community of supporters in Early Access compared to the final released version of the game. As mentioned, we love the support we get from the community. Be it an email, Facebook mention or like or just a, "Thank you" we want to show our love in return. So we will be initially pricing Early Access at a much lower point and then potentially raise the price as we get closer to the final released version.”

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

“One of the main reasons for Early Access is to get feedback from the community. We will utilize the Discussion forum right here on our Product page to make sure you are able to capture your thoughts, concerns and wishes so we can ensure State of Extinction is developed for your enjoyment.”

About This Game

State of Extinction is a mature story-driven hack-n-slash role playing game (RPG) for PC Windows, Mac and Linux set in a science-fantasy Antediluvian (Pre-Flood) world of early man.

Mystical ancestral paintings on hidden rocks prophesy about humanity’s salvation. Man and Beast are both becoming bolder, fiercer and more organized with each waning moon. As a black shadow of corruptness and death blackens the land with the blood of many, you must evolve as a leader to stand against this threat.

Passing from boy to man, you will train in the ancient skills of your calling while questioning your beliefs and the role of man during a state of extinction.

Key Game Features

  • EXPERIENCE BRUTAL COMBAT - Savage battles lie ahead as you put yourself between the fiercest of threats and the dearest of kin. You will need to learn the ways of Instinct, Intuition or Intelligence to stand against your enemies.

  • HUNT AND FORAGE - Hunt, gather and explore your way through a vast world of resources. Through a mastery of crafts, lead bands of people in creating resources for survival.

  • LUSH WORLD - Interact with various bands of people with different religions and beliefs living in snow-kissed mountains, forests and luscious grasslands.

  • FACE DEADLY ADVERSARIES - Learn when to stand and fight – and when to flee for your life – as you face the behemoths of the ancient world; Saber-Tooth Tigers, vengeful Mammoths and… other adversaries you may have thought the land forgot.

  • CHOOSE FROM VARIOUS CHARACTER CLASSES - Pick carefully from 3 tribes with over 20 unique Skills which you will learn as you grow in intellect. Which tribe you choose could be the deciding factor between mankind’s Evolution and its Extinction.

  • IMMERSE YOURSELF IN AN EPIC NARRATIVE - Cut your way through suspense, action, love and surprise in a mature science-fantasy story about what really happened to the early man. Even at our highest State of being, we are never truly safe from Extinction.
