Graywalkers: Purgatory is the first in a series of Emergent Strategic and Tactical Turn-based 3D Role-Playing Game set in a stylish supernatural post- apocalyptic world, where parts of Heaven, Hell and Earth have merged together in an event called “The Rupture”.
Your story begins in the new island of Purgatory, a place made up of displaced land masses located in the Bermuda Triangle.
In this game, you play the prophesied leader of the Graywalkers, the 36 Hidden Ones who walk the line between the darkness and the light. It is your task to gather them all, unite the different factions of Purgatory under your banner, and lead the war to reclaim the world for humanity against the supernatural forces that have dominated the world.
The game is inspired by a combination of the strategic, tactical and RPG elements of X-Com, Jagged Alliance, Fallout, Baldur’s Gate, and Civilization.
