"Skyhill", Roguelike-Survival game from The Mandragora Team

World War III is over, the world's infested with mutants and your supplies are running out. Fight your way down this damned hotel, from your penthouse on top to the first floor. Craft weapons, search for food and reach the exit. Otherwise you'll be torn apart, starve to death or maybe both...


World War III was one cruel tragedy, at least for the others. You seemed to have a quite nice time, hidden in your fancy penthouse at the Skyhill Hotel... Till the impact of a bio-weapon blew away the life you once knew.

Now there are mutants everywhere, and they're eager to rip you to shreds with their vicious claws. But they aren't your only problem: Your supplies are running out. You have to leave your luxurious penthouse and search for food. Walking through the skyscraper means going through hell. There is danger around every corner and death is a steady companion. But seriously, how would someone prepare for something like this?
It doesn't matter anymore. Nothing matters but survival. And time is running out.

FEATURES:

- Roguelike RPG gameplay in an apocalyptic survival setting
- Feels fresh every session – randomly generated maps
- Gain experience, craft weapons and look for useful objects
- Face an army of nightmarish creatures
- Go for the head or land a body shot – but choose wisely

- Open end – is there still hope? Come and find out!
- Various special abilities to unlock

Not really. We try to make the atmosphere not so "horror", but more "melancholic", center the attention on the loneliness of the main protagonist.

This looks potentially great, I like the modern setting. The plot seems vague, I get the melancholy which is nice but... is this guy rogueliking through his own despair or is there some external threat? Is it more casual exploration, or plot based? Is it designed to occur entirely in this posh hotel, or will there be exterior segments?

"searching for food and weapons ala survival-horror"
