CryoFall is a 2D open-world multiplayer survival game where you construct a new home, join forces with other survivors, and discover secrets on a mysterious ancient planet.

Welcome to the world of CryoFall, where a catastrophic crash landing has stranded you — and dozens of others — millions of light-years from home, trapped on a hostile planet and in constant danger. Your only hope for survival is to make use of the resources around you as you develop your skills and technology to conquer this new land, tame its harsh wilderness and build a new life for you and those who have found themselves marooned on CryoFall.

During your escape from your doomed homeworld, your convoy is thrown off course by a mysterious anomaly coming from an unknown nearby planet, drawing the ships into its atmosphere and forcing them to crash-land. You are one of those lucky enough to survive; but luck is a relative term. Left with absolutely nothing, alone, abandoned, afraid, and with no hope of escape in sight, your only choice is to find a way to survive the wilds of this new world. You must gather and make use of the resources at hand, build shelter, find food, water, and hopefully, other survivors, and come to terms with the fact that this is your new home.

But there is more to this planet than meets the eye — you were not the first to inhabit this it. There are many untold secrets left behind by ancient civilizations and those that followed to uncover — but only if you can survive long enough.

Featuring stunning 2D graphics that impart a unique handcrafted feel, CryoFall challenges you to explore new worlds while uncovering long-forgotten secrets and technologies, as you piece together the story of the planet’s long-lost citizens. In this tense, sci-fi survival RPG, you and other crash survivors must find ways to thrive on a harsh and unforgiving planet in order to build a functioning colony, starting small and working through a deep technology tree that will satisfy even the most hardcore of survival fans.

AtomicTorch Studio has poured countless hours of painstaking development to come up with the right in-house technology that drives the world of CryoFall — the RENKEI Engine. Empowered with it, hundreds of players can venture forth alone — or band together on the same server — to build bases, grow colonies, conquer neighboring territories and create powerful civilizations.

CryoFall is coming to PC via Steam Early Access on April 3rd, 2019. 

“We wanted to create a game where you don't just compete with other players over trivial matters like resources," reveals Valentin Gukov, CryoFall’s game designer. "With its deep features and focus on economy, agriculture, exploration, a compelling environment and more, CryoFall goes beyond that. It offers players lots of freedom on how they can interact with one another. At its core, this game is not about fighting, but creating a new world together!”

“We’ve been impressed by CryoFall ever since we came across it,” adds Jonas Hüsges, producer at Daedalic. “Players having the option of working with their fellow survivors or stealing what they have – all while exploring a mysterious world that slowly unveils its secrets - creates a really unique gameplay proposition which we think players are going to love.”
