What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“DYSMANTLE is an open world game with lots of different activities to do. This includes things such as gathering resources, fighting, farming, fishing, and treasure hunting. We want to listen to the players to hear what are the most fun things to do, and what will need more work or better rewards. We may also find some new activities we can implement.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The estimated Early Access period is 4 to 6 months depending on the feedback. Those are estimates. We're committed to making the game as good as we can with the resources we have.”

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

“The full version is planned to contain the features listed in "About This" section of the store page. It is planned to contain the whole island instead of the 1/3 of the open world area that is available in the Early Access version.

The Early Access version has all the features mentioned in the "About This" section of the store page with exception of building stuff and some of the craftable items and outfits. There is an Experience Level cap which is planned to be be significantly higher in full game. We're increasing it with each update. Breaking some objects requires tools available later in the game, so you can't destroy as many objects in the Early Access version.

The first Early Access version will be available in English and Windows only, but we plan to add the rest of the languages and platforms as we move towards the full version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version contains roughly the first 1/3 of the open world game area. There's also an Experience Level cap which prevents leveling up after reaching Level 21. Otherwise, the version contains all the features mentioned in the "About This" section of the store page with the exception of building stuff, and crafting some of the items and outfits. Building is planned to be available after you reach certain point in the game, which is not available in the first third of the game.

Most of the content should be pretty close to the final quality. The game main quest can be completed to a certain point, and after that you can embark on the different side quests and activities available. Our testers have spent 5-30 hours to complete the content available in the current Early Access version.”

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

“The price of the game will be increased some time during Early Access. The game seems to be bigger than we originally planned for, and the final price will reflect that.”

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

“We are hoping to get community feedback at the Steam Discussions forums. While the big features are already considered locked, there is still room for additional ideas for for example cool trinkets, tools/weapons, and outfits. Those who want to opt-in may also choose to send us their game logs inside the game. This will help us balance the game better, and enable them viewing their own game progress in a cool animated way. This feature is only planned to be available during Early Access.”

About This Game



As you ascend from your shelter after the long long years, a brave new old world awaits you. A world inhabited with nasty and vile creatures. A world with no other human soul to be seen. A world with nature in reigns now. A world that's about to get even worse.



You need to find a way to escape the wretched island. But before that, enjoy the bittersweet apocalypse.

  • 💥 Break over 99% of all objects for materials with the right tools. No barrier will stop you.
  • 🔪 Fight with (or run away) nasty and vile creatures of the post-apocalyptic era.
  • 🌵 Explore the handcrafted open world and uncover its mysteries.
  • Survive. Clear areas of monsters and claim it as yours.
  • 🔨 Build outposts to establish your presence.
  • 💎 Craft permanent weapons, tools, outfits, and trinkets.
  • 🐫 Hunt dangerous game or tame them for your post-apocalyptic zoo ranch.
  • 🌱 Farm exotic plants and reap the rewards as crop gets ripe.
  • 🏆 Solve puzzles above ground and underground in the Tombs of the Old Ones
  • 🎣 Fish cunning scaly things under the watery surface.
  • 🍰 Cook delicious recipes for permanent stat and ability upgrades.
  • 🗿 Unravel the mysteries of the strange island.



Explore the ruins of the past and discover technology from the hitech era. Gain technological advantage against the hostile environment. Or go deeper and recover the ancient lost knowledge from the hidden tomb chambers of the old ones. Acquire materials with almost magic-like properties and use them to craft insanely powerful gear.




Over 99% of everything can be broken for materials with the right equipment. Do that, and collect the sweet nectar of the old world: plastics, rubber, and metals. There is a reasonable number of different materials to gather. Find Recipes to craft permanent items and upgrades.




Explore the vast hand-crafted open world and build Outposts to establish your presence. Claim back the land area by area. Find hidden treasures and solve puzzles long ago forgotten. Find your means of escaping the island.




The world after the end is inhabited by nasty creatures. Something vile has affected most of the wildlife and former human inhabitants of the island -- turning them into aggressive beast-like creatures. Slay them and collect their loot. Harvest their organs and provide them eternal rest. Or run away and come back when you're stronger. Fight using various melee and ranged weapons. Create traps and lure monsters in. Do whatever it takes.



You will not be fighting just to maintain the status quo. This IS NOT a game about starving. You won't be constantly looking for a tasty cockroach to fill your over-metabolic stomach while waiting for the unavoidable bliss that is death. You will never die of hunger. You will get more powerful, and unlock permanent upgrades. The world is a dangerous place, and you may take a few steps back once in a while, but eventually you will thrive.

Enjoy the bittersweet apocalypse.





I think this is pretty obvious, but the game is still in development. This means the details will still change and features may get added, changed, or removed. More details will be announced during 2020!

Our team is not very big, so things take time. We're also building our own very technology and 3D engine for the game at the same time. We like to make sure we can do all the crazy stuff we want -- while ensuring everything runs smoothly on devices from PCs & next-generation consoles to mobile phones (and maybe toasters in the future).

Please wishlist the game to support the development! :)
