Basement is a drug-dealing strategy/simulation game. You play as a great scientist that has been forced to do not exactly legal stuff underground, as nobody wants to support his idea. Basement is all about management. You build your own enterprise producing several types of drugs. Find the right place, build production rooms, hire workers and security staff, avoid federals and raise the most effective company.


The main flow is such, you start small, absolutely: you have tiny basement, you sell small packs directly to a queue, cops has no interest with you, you have some grow - you sell on map with trucks, thy got busted by cops/gangs with fighting encounters, you get more territories under control, new quests and more attention, this makes your enterprise fragile, cause game has lots of details. Once you've managing all that troubles - you take path to one of the game finals, otherwise - you lose money, lose your workers, got some sabotages in basement and finally get jailed by police. From here, we're still thinking. Should we make a jail quest to escape(text quest) and start again with some savings from previous basement, or just end game.

  • Room management. Show how great of a strategist you are. Layout your basement space then build and launch production rooms.
  • Personal management. It’s hard to find good workers these days. Use all your savvy to find and hire the best people for your business!
  • Lots of random events. As an entrepreneur, you should be ready for anything. Fire in production rooms, supply disruptions or even greedy bureaucrats - you must be prepared for all of it.
  • Your own cars collection. Instead of getting stupid achievements for “one thousand kills”, you can build collection of awesome cars by performing certain “orders”.
  • Inspections. Sometimes you have to show others who is the boss. Fight against the Government, or… try to bribe them.
  • Prison. Punishment is inevitable. Because of the nature of your… work, you're often going to “visit” this place. Be ready.
  • The supreme goal. You start this company not just for “making money”. Thoroughly and slowly, step by step, make your way towards the supreme goal. And reach it despite all that stands in your path.
