'The Fermi Paradox' Expands Writing Staff, Demo Coming Next Week, Early Access In July

by Rainier on June 9, 2021 @ 2:22 p.m. PDT

The Fermi Paradox is a galactic, choice-driven narrative strategy game in which your decisions in one corner of the galaxy can upend entire civilizations in another.

Realise the fragility of the universe, the dangers of military power, and how to define peace for many intersecting cultures across the galaxy in The Fermi Paradox

With your critical voice, you shall guide the galaxy’s path, forging a history and future for each planet, starship, civilisation, and species with the choices you make. With hundreds of unique story events featuring thousands of choices, you wield the ink that will write the story of the galaxy. Will you encourage the first inter-species contact, help ignite a sexual revolution, or push civilisations towards a devastating galactic war? Carve a unique interstellar saga with each playthrough, and be the one to write the unwritten tale of the universe.

Wrapped in beautiful, passionately-crafted artwork and UI, with stunning sci-fi visual design and a haunting, atmospheric original soundtrack, The Fermi Paradox brings the “god game” genre to a galactic scale, where strategy and thoughtful decision-making is key to crafting a narrative where anything is possible. Evolution, extinction, first contact, lost resources, great wars, civilisational development, the breakdown of religion, technological progress, united colonies, complete and utter catastrophe. Yours is the hand that will guide the galaxy, choose wisely.

Anomaly Games announced that The Fermi Paradox is launching on Steam in Early Access on July 1, 2021.

The Fermi Paradox will also be exhibiting at Steam Next Fest, bringing developer livestreams, new information, and the first ever public demo of the game to Steam between June 16 and June 22!

Last but not least, Anomaly Games is delighted to announce collaborations with four talented industry veteran writers who will be working on The Fermi Paradox.

Joining as writers and editors on The Fermi Paradox:

  • Cara Ellison (Void Bastards, Dreams)
  • Jana Sloan van Geest (Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds, Assassin’s Creed: Origins)
  • Jedidjah Julia Noomen (Lost at Sea, Alt-Frequencies)
  • Brian Mitsoda (Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, Dead State)

Key Features

  • Galactic God game: Play as galactic gardener rather than a single faction, guiding up to 10 civilizations simultaneously
  • Choice-driven gameplay: Every event presents three choices that change the course of history – every decision matters, and consequences ripple across millennia
  • Many unique alien species: From nightmarish deep sea creatures to graceful sapient plant-beings, there are even strange hairless mammals called Humans
  • 400 different civilization-development events: Each event tells its own story and provides new choices that impact the story of that civilization – be it apocalyptic floods, sexual revolutions or conscious interstellar warships.
  • Distinctive societies within starships and colonies: Life on a generation ship or on an unknown planet poses different challenges and special narrative events.
  • Play again and again: Each play-through tells a different story and has its own ending. Will the people of that galaxy unite? Will they wipe out one another in a galactic war? Or will they perish, still alone, never really knowing that other alien life forms existed?

The Fermi Paradox is coming to PC (Steam) later in 2021.
