Dark-1 Games are announcing the release of their cinematic teaser trailer for the upcoming early access game Skopje. The game is set in an alternate version of the actual city under the same name, which has experienced an apocalyptic event during its brutalistic peak. With roguelite elements and an open-ended world gameplay, the game focuses on exploring a city thrust into disarray and surviving the hordes of mutated abominations that lurk at every corner. The early-access release date for this title will be announced at a later date.
Dark-1 is a small team of friends sharing a common passion for making games. With experience rooting from local game development companies and numerous game jams, the members chose to leave behind their jobs in order to fully focus on independently developing games. Since then, Dark-1 has released one title, a music-based challenging side-scrolling game, called Odium to the Core.
What is Skopje?
Skopje is a comic book styled First Person Shooter game with roguelite elements and an open world gameplay. Explore a city thrust into disarray by an unknown event and survive the hordes of mutated abominations that lurk at every corner. You’ll have to fight through enemies & bosses, scavenge loot and survive the hostile city.
You will have some help on your side in the form of your most trusted ally – DOM the jerry-rigged bus. This mobile base will not only keep you safe from enemies, but you can also use it to upgrade your character with the loot you find and drive around as you try to piece together the bits and pieces of what happened to the city and how to save it from annihilation.
Kill, Shoot, Craft & Loot
Every obstacle you face makes you stronger, even if it kills you. Enhance yourself and your weaponry with blueprints that persist between runs.
Dive into a truly brutalist rendition of Skopje
Explore a city full of brutalist architecture based on a real life capital that’s been twisted into a nightmarish hellscape.
No matter how hostile the outside world is, you always have your mobile base DOM, the bus where you can not only upgrade yourself, but you can also drive it around the city.
Ever-changing world, ever-changing playthrough
Every time you die and come back, the city is changed. The enemies are in different locations, the loot is different, and you have to kill your way through the city again. Different roads lead to different challenges.
