Evil Has Awakened

It is the 24th century, and mankind has only recently begun expanding its reach to the star systems nearest our own Solar System.

A dark and terrible secret is buried within a misshapen moon nestled in the massive asteroid belt of the Epsilon Eridani system. Pythos colony was built there ostensibly to exploit the planetoid's mineral resources, but now they've disturbed a kind of evil that lurks beyond the fringes of our comprehension.

Through an ever-changing labyrinth, you will remold yourself into a cybernetic killing machine using the powerful technologies of a long-dead alien civilization. With these new-found weapons, you will pave a path of aberrant corpses toward the greatest threat to mankind ever encountered.

Cthon is an old school science-fiction first-person shooter, where you become a cybernetic weapon against the dark legions of a powerful evil entity - known only as Cthon - who lurks within the planetoid. It is a classic space horror game, aesthetically inspired by the likes of Doom, System Shock, and Quake.

The game is 100% Let's Play, stream, and screenshot friendly.

Features
  • Fight - and die - through nine sprawling randomly generated levels. No two games are ever the same, and permanent death ensures unrelenting tension.
  • Modify yourself with the cybernetic technologies of the ancients. A unique upgrade-powering system allows you to get down to the details of character building, and choose the stats you want, when you want, with millions of permutations. Mod types include defensive upgrades like health, armor and speed, offensive upgrades that can increase your damage and rate of fire, and other upgrades that affect the projectiles you fire, like the ability to pierce through multiple targets or shoot bursts of smaller rounds.
  • Slay an extensive array of monstrous creatures, each with intriguing tactical strengths and weaknesses.
  • Choose one of three characters, each of them specialized toward different cybernetic builds.
  • Multiple difficulty levels allow you to adjust the nightmare world to your tastes.
  • Use nano-tech currency to gain a strategic edge - access machines that can forge new items, replenish your resources, and expand your cybernetic framework.
  • The complex, haunting soundtrack complements the dark and oppressive atmosphere.

OK. Tnen may be add it not now, as you want, but with DLC later.

@Archduke of Flowers There will most likely be one major DLC of expansion content depending on how well the base game does; I'll reserve the right for now to charge for it because I don't know how much extra content there will be yet, but I anticipate and would prefer to keep it free.

@vladalekap I think achievements would be fun to do in the future, provided there is enough demand, but I will be focusing my resources on other things for now.

"Gravity Games", can you add achivments to your game?
Archduke of Flowers Mar 15 @ 9:23am 
Okay price sounds good and infrequent updates isn't bad too. May i ask if you go for dlc's ? And If so how much are you going to charge for it (them?).
Archduke of Flowers Mar 15 @ 9:21am 
Well im goin for it then

@Archduke of Flowers Hi! It will not be early access. There will be infrequent updates to it, and there is expansion content planned in the future, but the base game is complete. The price will be the same as on itch.io (4.99 USD). This will vary slightly depending on your country.

Okay i don't want to sound stupid but.
Will this be early access ?
What will the price be ? ( Same as the Itch.io one ?).

...Even though you already released the product. In December.
Gravity Games  [author] Mar 5 @ 7:47pm 
@Doktor Boney Indeed, I made an announcement about the current situation on the 28th: In a nutshell, I have decided to avoid announcing a final release date until I'm absolutely sure that we're ready to go. For the record, I'm not delaying the game's release intentionally. I'm a single developer with limited time and I'm trying my best to get the game in everyone's hands, but I want to make sure it is done right. I realize you're upset with me, but I cannot sacrifice the quality of the product in order to release it earlier.
