'The Unliving' Announced - Screens & Trailer

The Unliving is dark fantasy action role-playing game that combines roguelite and real-time strategy gameplay for a new spin on the RPG genre.

The realm of the living has been corrupted to its core and a storm is coming to change the world order. This storm is you, a mighty Necromancer, a sorcerer who denies death and leads the legions of the dead. Clerics and lords hope to hide behind high walls, but there’s no stronghold to cover them from your wrath. Smite hundreds of those standing in your way and turn them into your tools on the way to a greater purpose.

The Unliving is a dynamic rogue-lite action RPG with strategic elements. Raise the undead, use numerous spells and explore a mystical world, all realised with darkly extravagant pixel-art.

In The Unliving, players wield the dark art of necromancy to command a growing army of the undead through a mystical world, wreaking havoc across humanity’s domains and turning fallen enemies into morbid servants. While the Necromancer may control the undead even he cannot escape death; with each reincarnation, players must learn from their mistakes, forge new strategies, and overcome the living, all while trying to unravel the secrets buried deep in forgotten corners of the world of The Unliving.


The Unliving is the first title RocketBrush Studio has developed in its entirety as a team, and we’re thrilled to have Team17 on board to help us realise the vision we have for this ambitious undead title. We can’t wait for players to be able to experience commanding an increasingly powerful army of the dead to crush their enemies on the scale we’ve created in game,” said RocketBrush Studio Founder Aleks Rublev.

“Bringing The Unliving to our ever-expanding and creative stable of games at Team17 underlines our commitment to support great games and help studios realise their ambitions. RocketBrush Studio already has a track record in delivering distinctive in-game art assets for developers, and now it’s their turn to create a game themselves. The Unliving’s combination of real-time strategy, roguelite, and RPG gameplay promises a brand-new experience for players looking to test their skills,” commented Team17 Head of Publishing Max Everingham.

Key Features:

  • TURN ENEMIES INTO YOUR UNDEAD ARMY: Each fallen foe can be resurrected and added to your army to create unlimited legions of the dead. These re-animated creatures have their own unique abilities, such as the undead Priest whose blessings in life, will now curse your enemies in death.
  • CRUSH EVERYONE IN YOUR WAY: Only some of the living are helpless victims, the rest can retaliate against your forces. They hold the line, move in large groups and wield powerful abilities too. They cherish their lives and will not fall easily, so unleash hell as the Undead Lord to bring them to their knees.
  • CONQUER UNCHARTED LANDS: The world is randomly generated for each run and is richly populated with an array of creatures, artefacts, secret rooms and deadly traps. Each part of the world is occupied by a variety of living inhabitants - invade villages and slay feeble peasants to reinforce your army or engage in a desperate fight to the death in the swamps against formidable foes.
  • UNRAVEL THE MYSTERIES OF NECROMANCY: Collect cryptic notes, force answers out of your enemies and study the writings of the ancient artefacts to gather the lost memories of the Necromancer piece by piece as you reveal the nature of his immortality, the secrets of his phylactery companion and find out the grim truth about the supreme hierarchies of the Church.
  • BATTLE EPIC BOSSES: The powerful creatures of this shadowy world will do all they can to stop you. Each boss has a unique fighting style and set of abilities, meaning deftness in combat and strategic thinking will be crucial in emerging victorious from these grueling encounters.
  • DIE AND RISE AGAIN: The ability to deny death itself is the greatest secret of the Necromancer. Another mortal strike is merely a setback for him. Take a lesson from your death and don’t let your enemies catch you the same way twice.

The Unliving is currently in development for PC (Steam), scheduled for launch in 2021.
