The Apocalypse is coming
A huge THANK YOU...
Release date: April 27 2016
One person.
4+ years of development.

Part turn-based resource management, part real-time defense shooter, Emerge places you into a futuristic world, ravaged by a zombie Apocalypse.

Download the Demo!

EXPLORE AND EXPAND: Restore derelict metropolises, one turn at a time! How will you spend your Action Points this turn? Will you scout a nearby sector, then clean your weapons and check out a new recruit? Or will you patch the hole in your defenses and then blindly move into unexplored territory?

REDISCOVER LOST TECH: Plot your course over an expansive, multi-branched research tree! Bring forth scientific marvels, or start a second industrial revolution! Or perhaps, build a strong economy and make powerful alliances with merchants and mercenaries!

MANAGE YOUR TEAM: Choose your character class and find or recruit survivors. Gain experience and improve your team's skills and equipment. Find and buy tons of weapons, mods and usable items! But beware, for fighting the undead can be deadly...

BUILD AND FORTIFY: The Apocalypse has ravaged cities' infrastructure, and it's up to you to restore them. Construct improvements in captured sectors to empower your cause. Produce automated defenses to help you weaken or eliminate invading undead armies!

FIGHT THE UNDEAD ARMIES: As turns pass, more dangerous undead appear. From acid-spitting zombies to undead, armored soldiers, there are no limits to the horrors you will face. Set your snipers to aim for the head, have a bunch of grenades ready, and pray they don't reach your barricade in numbers!

UNLOCK THE FUTURE: Relieve the world from undeath in campaign or skirmish mode! Meet mysterious survivors and determine the outcome of random events! Unlock new areas, enemies, classes, bonuses and challenges and lots of extra content as you play!

System Requirements: Pentium 4 3.4 MHz or better, 1 MB RAM, 256 MB Graphics card (nVidia GeForce 8800 GT / ATi Radeon HD 3870 or better)
OS: Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8 / 10

it's ok!! i just found a section on the page i hadn't seen before which guided me through claiming a steam key :)

hi vdweller, is it possible to get a steam key upon release if i have already purchased it from your website?

Tried that demo and difficulty level seems little excessive.

This game looks like fun. I was hoping it would be out already ;p I'll put it in my wishlist.

Well things are going smoothly so far, more content is being added, trading cards are ready, cloud saves are ready, made a deal with a fellow programmer on a wrapper .dll for achievements and stats, also some extra polishing is in order. So it should be ready in around 2026. JK. My personal goal is by the end of April 2016 but this strictly depends on testers having good news on stability/balance and the wrapper being done quickly.
