Explore a flooded world and save humanity from a terrible threat in this turn based, tactical RPG with roguelike elements.

Depth of Extinction’s engaging storyline is rich in detail – unfolding gradually through random encounters. For maximum tactical freedom, the game allows you to choose from 8 different classes (each with their own unique skills) and up to 115 different weapons, armor, and items. Think ahead – and think fast – to remain in one piece after each mission ...

Are you ready to take part in mankind’s last stand? If so, a word of warning: Depth of Extinction is not forgiving – and death is permanent!

Deep Rising

Thousands of years ago, an unknown calamity plunged civilization as we know it to the bottom of what is now a vast ocean. As the waters rose, those who survived the event formed a new society known as the “Creators” and rebuilt the human population – producing advanced technology to better suit their needs. However, as eons passed, the Creators faded from existence – leaving behind remnants of their civilization and their technology.

With the seas more uncertain than ever, mankind has split into multiple factions – including “The Republic,” who used the machines left behind by the Creators and became the most stable faction while the others favored violence instead. However, these machines started to fail them – and the population grew wary of the future. With rumors of killer machines or worse in faraway seas, humanity’s only chance at survival is to venture out into the unknown.
