'Meet Your Maker' Is A Base Building/Raiding Game Coming To Playstation , Xbox and PC In 2023, PC Playtest Later This Month - Screens & Trailer

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, Meet Your Maker is a first person building and raiding game where every level is designed by players.

From the creators of Dead by Daylight comes Meet Your Maker, Behaviour Interactive’s new spin on the building-and-raiding genre.

Set in a post-apocalyptic future, players take on the role of the Custodian, servant to the Chimera: a biological experiment, and the key to humanity’s salvation. Tasked with seeking out uncorrupted genetic material, they must defend and steal this vital resource by building and raiding deadly maze-like structures known as Outposts. Designed for strategy and action fans alike, Meet Your Maker will grow over time, adding new content and featuring an ever-expanding toolbox of traps, guards, and gear. 

Gameplay revolves around the creation and infiltration of stand-alone levels called Outposts. Players will switch between roles as they mastermind devious maze-like Outposts filled with traps and guards, then gear up for methodical fast-paced combat raiding other players’ creations.

In this dying world, players take on the role of the Custodian, servant to the Chimera: a living experiment created as a last resort to save life on Earth. They’ll enter a tactical battle for the planet’s most coveted resource and the key to the Chimera’s evolution: pure Genetic Material. But acquiring it won’t be easy. Players will need to build and fortify maze-like Outposts that extract and guard the precious GenMat, or infiltrate and outsmart other players’ creations to gather more. With every Outpost in the game built by players, user-generated content is the driving force of the experience.

Building is about creating Outposts designed to lure, outwit, and kill trespassing players. To do so, players will combine a huge array of customizable blocks, traps, and guards as they strategically create their deadly masterpiece. The innovative AI recording system allows players to pre-record custom patrol paths for their guards to surprise and swarm raiders. On the flip side, players will also need to raid the Outposts created by others. Each Outpost will test their grit, wit, and reflexes as they try to get in, grab the GenMat, and make it out alive. No two Outposts will ever be the same, making for a highly replayable experience.

“Behaviour Interactive is known for creating unique moments for players and Meet Your Maker clearly delivers on this reputation,” said Ash Pannell, Creative Director. “The game is built on UGC and creates deep social connections, whether you play alone or co-op. As a builder, share your meticulously built Outpost and watch other players take them on via our replay system. It never gets old to watch others die. You’ll reap rewards and learn how to strengthen your creation. As a raider, you’ll try, die, retry, and eventually gain the knowledge to extract that Genmat and exit victoriously. In both cases, it’s highly entertaining and always fun to watch.

Players can sign up on the Meet Your Maker website for an opportunity to join in the Closed PC Playtest which begins on August 23rd.
