Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Releasing in early access allows us to start getting feedback on gameplay now in a way that we would never be able to if we were only doing our own play testing. This way we can continue to improve the game and mechanics as we expand upon the experience. We want to allow as many people as possible in on that process so we can collect as much feedback as possible. That way we can develop the best experience possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Around 8 -12 months. We have plans for more game modes, expanded narratives / story mode, and even multiplayer so you can defend the homestead with friends.”

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

“Improved mechanics, more game modes/maps, expanded narrative/story mode, more weapons and barricade types, and multiplayer are some of the main things to expect to be added as the game reaches a more finalized state.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“As of this moment we just pushed our biggest update 0.2.0. Basically rebuilding the game from the ground in order to create a better game play experience. The game is stable and currently has only 1 map and game mode. There is plenty of planned improvements and you will still run into occasional issues/bugs.”

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

“Knowing full well that in it’s current state there’s not nearly as much content as the full release will contain, the game will be discounted for Early Access. We want as many people to play and give feed back now as possible, and we don’t want anyone to feel like they paid too much for what they’re getting. We’re only charging for what we think the game is worth in it’s current form, and we want anyone who gets in now to get a solid discount.”

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

“We want to hear from you! Tell us your stories, let us know what was great, what wasn't working, and what you want to see in the future. That kind of feedback is something we take very seriously and love to get, so we encourage comments and communication with us about your game play experience.

We have a road map of where we want to take The Homestead Invasion, but, that is always subject to change based on your experiences. Feel free to join our discord https://discord.gg/c8ky78j.


“We will be leveraging the game's Steam Community to interface and collect feedback from our customers. We are primarily interested in getting as much community feedback as possible so we can make the game even better.””

About This Game

Intro
The first outposts fell within minutes and before morning there was nothing but radio silence.

Did they come from a distant world or deep within the Earth’s crust? Perhaps they were formed by the very fibers of man’s worst intentions, a cosmic comeuppance for lives misspent. Whatever their origin, these are the facts: they don’t rest, they can’t be reasoned with, and their intent is singular; to extinguish mankind wherever they step foot.

Shore up your outpost, take up arms, and hope the night ends with this terrible enemy returning from whence they came.

Gameplay
The outposts have gone quiet and the sensor network is down, but things look clear at outpost 1. Have they withdrawn or do they lie quietly in wait? You must make your way to the outpost to find the answer.

Get the outposts back online, and with the help of your AI companion accessible over your handheld radio, take back and defend from an onslaught of monstrous invaders. Use whatever you can to keep them at bay. Board up the doors and build your defenses, secure the hatches, but even that won’t stop them for long... Load up, strap on your guns, and prepare to fight to reclaim what’s yours.

Play the first gamemode Reclamation, at outpost 1. New reclamation maps will be released monthly and sometimes seasonally depending on the occasion.

Features
  • Unique barricade system for building up your defenses to hold the attackers at bay.
  • Periodic map releases with unique scenarios to keep things fresh.
  • Relentless AI that will stop at nothing in their pursuit to track you down and kill you.
  • A variety of weapons for sending the geisters into oblivion.
  • Beautiful and terrifying sound design that builds a sense of peril.
  • A stylized comic book esque world.

Updates
  • New map with expanded gameplay
  • All new weapons
  • Improved AI
  • Updated graphics and style
  • Multiple movement controls, now including slide movement.

Future
  • More outposts to reclaim
  • Additional game modes, meaning new goals in new places, with new tools to get the job done.
  • Story mode.
  • Improved mechanics. We've got things in a good place for an early access release but we still have time to spend time ironing out mechanics, for all aspects of game play.
  • More dynamic gameplay. From setting traps to sneaking, future game modes will offer even more diverse gameplay.

Oculus Support
  • Oculus is fully supported out of the box with a 2 sensor setup.

    Vive Support
  • Vive is fully supported out of the box.
