Ashes of Oahu is an open world, post-apocalyptic RPG shooter where you tap into the power of the spirit world to liberate the Hawaiian island of Oahu from the army that occupies it.

Built using the Unreal 4 Engine,  Ashes of Oahu  combines innovative action with faction-based gameplay, inviting players to discover the secrets of Hawaii’s mystical past while uncovering and exploring a full-scale authentic representation of 500 square miles of game world terrain – from discovering special powers and abilities of the Hawaiian gods, to choosing skills and weapons, and remaking the island in their own way, all while watching out for the powerful Nightmarchers who protect the island.

In Ashes of Oahu, players must fight for survival and learn to tap into the power of the spirit world to become a demigod and help liberate Oahu from the army that has taken its control.

As you explore the apocalyptic paradise of Oahu, you will come upon various areas of settlement. Some will be overrun by Kamapua'a raiders, while others will be run by the various factions that have taken footing. But it's the Pig God's raiders that can be the most dangerous, and it's Kai's job to clear them out.

Who knows? If you manage to restore these pockets of Oahu to their natural or peaceful states, you just might be rewarded by the gods for fighting the good fight.

With over 75,000 lines of dialog leading to over 100 possible ending combinations, player choice makes each story unique. Along the way, players will unlock over 50 different skills and weapon enhancements based on these decisions helping to shape their gameplay experience.

Wyrmbyte is pleased to announce that its open-world action game, Ashes of Oahu is content complete and headed for an official Steam launch date of August 29, 2019.

Right now, Wyrmbyte is ready to invite players into the closed beta. The five-man Denver-based team is striving to make Ashes of Oahu a memorable experience, but not due to any crazy bugs and glitches. While the team is hard at work quality testing the game they will also grant everyone who pre-orders closed beta access so they can join the developers and contribute to the crushing of post-apocalyptic bugs.

Even if someone hasn’t purchased the game yet, they still have the possibility of being able to participate in the beta. If they join the Ashes of Oahu community Discord, or sign up for the community newsletter, Wyrmbyte will randomly select members to invite into the closed beta. Additional beta keys have also been set aside so media will have an opportunity to preview and write about their experience.

Want to be one of the first to meet the Lava Dogs? Crush the Raiders? Evade a Nightmarcher? You’ll be able to all of those things in the beta. Those who pre-order Ashes of Oahu, in addition to receiving closed beta access to the game, will also receive 3 days early access ahead of the August 29th launch date.
