Developer Razor Edge Games has announced their new game, Epocylipse: The AfterFall.
Epocylipse: The AfterFall is a non-linear open world game featuring many ways to play. It features optional rules that allow players to up the intensity and make the game more realistic. Play Epocylipse: The AfterFall on your PC or print out your character sheet and play the tabletop RPG version of the game. It is being created by a self-funded multicultural team of gamers with no investors to control development.
Epocylipse: The AfterFall Play Style
The original game is a mix of traditional table top RPG aided by cards. The PC game carries over many of the elements of a traditional table top RPG game, but it has a fully envisioned 3D environment, where you can see your characters carry out your commands, see exactly what they are wearing, carrying and doing. The environment features a day cycle of dawn, dusk, daylight and night. Every choice you make for your character is final; life in the AfterFall is very unforgiving.
Gameplay consists of a mixture of strategy, wit, common sense and a willingness to push your character into the unknown. There are no perfect character builds or ways to play. Play however you want: questing, adventuring, building reputation, exploring, influencing the faction wars…The different play styles and ways to build your character are too numerous to count.

Lead Game Designer & CEO of Razor Edge Games, Mike Weiser, stated:
“Early in 2006 I decided to start to write a game that I could play solo or with friends, but also have an unending campaign that would allow me to play on even if they couldn’t join me for specific play sessions.
I wanted to design an RPG I always wanted to play, one that allowed me to experience the same feeling I had while playing table top but without the need for a game master. During this time I really didn’t think much about publishing this game, I was making it for me, something I would enjoy.”
Epocylipse: The AfterFall is slated for a 2016 release.
