'Deliver Us Home' Launches Kickstarter Campaign - Trailer

by Rainier on June 11, 2024 @ 5:18 p.m. PDT

Deliver Us Home is a solitary sci-fi experience where one astronaut works to secure a new home and future for humanity.

It’s the 23rd century. Humanity has long ago evacuated the wasteland that is planet Earth. You, a descendant of the evacuees, have been trained relentlessly to become an interplanetary astronaut. Sent out into the endless void of space, your mission statement is as simple as it is impossible: secure a new, permanent home for humanity.

After a long journey, you approach your designated planet. Though you’ve prepared for the unexpected, the worst, and the most extreme conditions, there’s no telling what lies in store for you on the surface. Survive the unknown, explore the desolation, and break ground for humanity’s new home as you uncover the secrets of mysterious settlers that - somehow - arrived here long before you did...

Deliver Us Home is filled with interactions used to explore the nooks and crannies of both your designated planet and the outer space surrounding it. Use power cells, pressure plates and redirectable energy to unlock long-abandoned places. Command your robot companion and drive your rover to reach areas otherwise inaccessible to you. Climb ledges, scale walls and move objects to platform your way to new heights, more mysteries - and loot.

KeokeN Interactive has launched their Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for Deliver Us Home, looking to raise €100.000.

“Taking matters into our own hands after years of pitching feels very liberating,” explains Koen Deetman, “and it has motivated us to work extremely hard over the past few weeks. Creativity spiked to an all-time high and we’ve been running on all cylinders to orchestrate the campaign, the trailer, and the demo that backers get to play. It truly is a token of our love and dedication to the craft of making video games.” 

The campaign comes at a time of great turmoil within the industry, the effects of which have profoundly impacted KeokeN. “It’s an arduous task to create both a crowdfunding campaign and a demo with the skeletest of skeleton crews, whilst simultaneously helping our former friends and colleagues find new places to work,” says Paul Deetman. 

Still, Deliver Us Home marks a return to the very roots of the series that the brothers are excited to share with both new and returning fans. “The game emphasises mystery, majestic desolation, the thrill of the unknown, and awe-inspiring moments,” they elaborate. “Combined with our vision for more player agency and a widely linear approach, players are in for a unique adventure. And at the same time, the campaign forms the foundation for how we can shape KeokeN’s future with a very lean and experienced studio, better suited for a sustainable future as an independent developer.”

The kickstarter campaign runs for 30 days to hit its target of €100.000 before its conclusion on Thursday July 11, 2024.  

Backers who pledged for Early Bird Edition / Standard Edition or higher gain exclusive access to our Kickstarter demo once the campaign is finished! Crafted specifically for this Kickstarter, the demo explores some of the features and premises of Deliver Us Home. Enjoy the mystery and solitude, and be sure to provide us feedback!

Deliver Us Home contains decisions to be made and unique, challenging moments and scenarios that require the necessary equipment and preparation. Luckily, your designated planet is rife with materials and ingredients. Scour your environment and pay close attention to the clues around you to obtain the parts, materials and information imperative to your survival and progress. Upgrade your suit, your robot companion and your vehicle to keep progressing and to style them to your taste. In classic Metroidvania fashion, you’ll find that some upgrades not only unlock completely new areas, but also allow you to access locations that were previously just beyond your reach.

Deliver Us Home features a host of mysteries waiting for you to uncover them. As you find more messages, holograms, souvenirs, letters, farewells, logs, artifacts, relics and more, the story slowly unfolds. Reconcile with your past, uncover the truth about the settlers who came before you, and ultimately restore your designated planet to secure a new home and future for humanity.

Key Features:

  • Deliver Us Home is a narrative-driven, third-person adventure game set in a widely linear world that’s yours to explore, scavenge, survive, uncover, and restore.
  • Undertake an odyssey on a planet that’s magnificently serene - and hauntingly desolate.
  • Live through a sweeping story that explores the consequences of climate change and the future of humanity.
  • Dive into a solitary experience packed with mystery and unique, memorable moments.
  • Deliver Us Home is the third game in the celebrated ‘Deliver Us’ series. You don’t need to have played the other two games to enjoy this one, though!
  • Be part of a movement that uses the power and reach of the medium we love so much - games - to deliver meaningful messages in compelling stories.

 Deliver Us Home is in development for PC, scheduled for Sept. 2026.
