Neverdark : trailer et screenshots

1
361

Slitherine vient de dévoiler aujourd’hui un futur jeu a priori très original qui mélangera combats tactiques et simulation stratégique en temps réel. Le tout dans un cadre bien connu, celui de grandes métropoles (Paris, New York et Tokyo) mais avec une société venant de s’effondrer à la suite d’une coupure d’électricité à l’échelle planétaire. Autrement dit le jeu tendra assez vers le genre postapo, mais probablement dans un futur très proche. Il faudra y gérer un groupe de survivants, affronter différentes factions (6 initialement) luttant pour contrôler la cité, puis investir des ressources et développer son influence. On pourra entre autres prendre le contrôle de différents bâtiments, afin de les reconvertir, comme par exemple transformer le Louvre en siège du marché noir.

La première bande-annonce ci-dessus présente le contexte du jeu, tandis que les premières captures d’écrans ci-après montrent elles quelques aspects de la dimension stratégique. Point pour l’instant d’images sur la représentation des combats, et donc des jungles urbaines qui feront office de champ de bataille.

Pour plus d’informations sur Neverdark, dont la sortie est prévue cette année, sans plus de précisions pour l’instant, voyez le communiqué suivant puis cette fiche chez l’éditeur, ou celle-ci sur Steam.

 

 

Communiqué

Neverdark has been announced!

On December 24th 2030 a global blackout occurred. In an instant, the world lost access to electricity, and suddenly so many things that we had taken for granted were gone; the Internet, global communications, electronic devices… all gone.

War emerged as governments fell. Society collapsed upon itself and guns, medicine and food became the new currency. A new world rose from the ashes of the old one, one ruled by bands of raiders, religious cults, bikers gangs, idealistic democratic communes and organisations built around charismatic leaders. Cities became battlegrounds. This is the world of Neverdark!

Real-time simulation strategy gameplay

Neverdark is a pausable real-time strategy game which brings you to a post-apocalyptic world. Following a global blackout, society has collapsed, and it will be your goal to rebuild it.

You lead a group of survivors, and you will need to contend with other factions over the control of the city. Invest resources, expand your influence and take over the city, street by street. Neverdark is as much about politics and social evolution as is about combat.

Real cities and real maps

In Neverdark you play in a fallen and ruined city; you need to rebuild it, adapt it to new needs and conditions and build a new kind of infrastructure. But you are going to play across real urban maps of existing cities; Paris, New York and Tokyo. You will find yourself leading your people and expanding across familiar streets. Take over existing buildings and repurpose them. Perhaps you might want to use the Louvre Museum as the seat of your Black Market, or it might be a good idea to grow your crops on Rooftop Farms in Brooklyn? It is entirely up to you.

Political decisions and events

A new type of society has emerged, one without a central government and your goal is to shape it and see it evolve. React to dynamic random events, which force you to make ethical or political decisions. Pass new laws and edicts, adapting to ever-changing conditions. Adopt new policies, and decide what direction your new society will take.

Tactical combat

One way or another, you need to deal with other groups competing for control of the city. Both you and your enemies have powerful and influential agents at your disposal. You will need to send those specialists across the city to perform political and military tasks. Perhaps sending a Political Agitator in a contested neighbourhood might sway the locals that your cause merits their support? Or perhaps your enemy got there first, and then it might not be a bad idea to send a Sniper to take him out?

Eventually, the streets will run red with blood. Take the fight to the streets, and lead your crews of specialists in exciting turn-based tactical combat missions.

Neverdark is set to release on PC in 2019! Stay tuned, like us on Facebook and wishlist it on Steam to get all the latest news on Neverdark!

  1. Voilà un concept bien intéressant … pas besoin de zombies pour faire du post apocalyptique.

    Un jeu en droite ligne avec la théorie de l’Effondrement !
