Ancient Beast is a turn based strategy indie game project, played online against other people, featuring a wide variety of creatures to acquire and items to equip onto, putting them to use in order to defeat your opponents.

Ancient Beast is free, open source and developed by Freezing Moon (and community). It uses web languages such as HTML, PHP and JavaScript, so that it's playable from any modern browser without the need of plugins. This project was carefully designed to be easy to learn, fun to play and hard to master. We hope you'll enjoy it!

Note that there will be a downloadable version as well in the near future!


It's the year 2653. In the last centuries, technology advanced exponentially and everyone had a fair chance of playing God. With help from the RepRap project, a free desktop 3d printer, which gave anyone power to build their own weapon factory or genetic laboratory on their own property. Mechanic parts or genetic modifications turned from a fashion option into a requirement for survival.

Despite their combined efforts, the world's governments couldn't prevent the world from plunging into chaos. The Earth has become a battlefield, split between 7 factions fighting for dominion over the ravaged landscape. The apocalypse is here, and only the strong will survive.
