'Infected Shelter' (ALL) Makes Debut At EGX - Screens & Trailer

Infected Shelter is a randomly generated rogue-lite post-apocalyptic action RPG shooter / dungeon brawler.

Infected Shelter is a bloody good apocalyptic fun. It attempts to take on the end of the world in a lighthearted, yet violent, way.

You play as a member of a surviving group in a post-apocalyptic world. On one fateful morning you awake to find the shelter is raided and your people are kidnapped for reasons unknown. Leaving your shelter you emerge into the harsh infected land and start looking for the kidnappers and the truth behind the events. Your path lead you through randomly generated post-apocalyptic areas controlled by different enemy factions with brutal leaders and shelters occupied by infected creatures.

You have to use your skills in a fast paced, violent and complex 2D brawler-like combat where lots of firearms and melee weapons are waiting for you to beat and execute your enemies. You will unlock new weapons, clothes, skills, relics and RPG-like character improvements during your journey.

Every run is different because of the randomly generated content. By beating enemies players can loot more than 150 different blueprints of permanent improvements and this is the key to Infected Shelter's replayability. Instead of just collecting loot to make yourself more powerful during a single run, you unlock new weapons, clothes, skills, relics and RPG-like character improvements that change how you play the game in the following runs.


Dark Blue Games earlier indie games were peaceful games without any blood, gore or violence. In the years of indie development they hoarded seven gallons of blood and guts in their office and they needed to do something with their suppressed mental frustration. In 2015 they decided to get rid of the evidence and started to work on a violent, bloody but still funny post-apocalyptic game inspired by co-op brawlers like Castle Crashers and the modern rouge-lite dungeon crawler games like Rouge Legacy, Binding of Isaac and Dead Cells.

Infected Shelter will be coming to Steam Early Access in Q4 2018.
