What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Depraved is a really big, ambitious game and as development team of two, Steam Early Access is great way for us to get feedback from users.

Please only purchase the game during this stage if you want to help support development and provide feedback and suggestions to the team.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“There is no planned release date at the moment. We're committed to fully releasing this game as soon as it is truly complete and fully polished. We guess it will roughly take 1 year to complete the game.”

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

“The full version will include much more content. New features like native americans (with a complex diplomacy system), the ability to build your own train tracks or a more complex fight system. We are planning to extend the events (like bandit/animal attacks) and of course additional polish to existing parts of the game”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Depraved currently contains all the basic systems. You can build up houses, gather resources, fight against dangers and you can progress with your cities, but there is still a lack of end game content and system that are not quite finished. This is where the community can help us.”

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

“The base price may be increased upon release from Early Access.”

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

“Involving the community in the development process is the main reasons we decided to go with Early Access. We’re very active in our community and we’re listening to feedback and we want to create or change Depraved with the community to make a better game.”

December 8

Crops and gallows

This is our first big content update. It contains the new harvesting system. You can create crop fields and choose which crop to grow on. Each crop has a specific season in which it can be cultivated.

There are 3 crops. Corn, wheat and potatoes. Corn is fed to pigs, cattle and sheep. Wheat is needed to make bread and alcohol is extracted from potatoes.

Another new thing is the gallows. If the crime in your city is too high, it helps to hang someone. Only imprisoned residents / bandits can be hanged.

In addition, we have changed some things on the UI, which should help you to notice things faster.

All changes can be seen in the following list:

About This Game

In Depraved you are the leader of the pioneers in the Wild West. You are about to start your adventure in a procedurally generated world with only one carriage full of resources. Select a suitable place for your first settlement and procure building materials from mother nature or by trading to create a new home country for your residents. The happier your residents are, the faster your town will grow.
Supply your residents with food and water, so that they won't starve or die of thirst. Protect them against the weather and against illnesses by supplying them with clothes and fire wood.

You will have to face numerous dangers. Storms, illnesses and bandits will strike at you, and also your own residents can become a danger, if you do not meet their needs. Are you ready for this challenge?


The residents of Drepraved have needs. Their basic needs are hunger and thirst which you can satisfy with food and water. In addition, every population type needs another food source. If your population type experiences a shortage of food and the preferential food is not available, you can nourish them with an alternative food source - however, this will affect the mood of your residents in a negative way. Unhappy residents commit raids and other criminal offenses or simply leave the town.

The happier the residents of your town are, the more popular life in your town will become and more and more colonist will join you. If your town experiences famines, illnesses or lawlessness, the residents of the town will turn their backs and the streets will resemble a ghost town.


The Wild West is dangerous! Dozens of challenges must be faced. There are different areas in which your residents can settle down - however, each of them is known for its own challenges. While in the desert the food and water supply remains a difficulty, in the snowy areas you can only resist by a constant supply with fire wood.

Another danger comes from the surrounding animals. Even if most animals avoid humans, you should be cautious with wolves or bears. They can cause heavy injuries to your residents or kill them.

Also surrounding camps and bandits can become dangerous. Do not underestimate them, because they rob your residents and commit raids. Such attacks affect the safety feeling of your residents and cost you valuable resources.
