A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

--- Full Game Coming Soon ---

*** Now On Kickstarter ***


When the world gets too hot humanity finds sanctuary underground. After a
long waiting list you finally score a spot in the local underground
city of Camden, run by Mayor Rick Davidson. You and your mother move in
and begin to acclimate to this wonderful new life. As time passes,
however, things start to go wrong. Unravel what’s going on, and face
some hard choices that will impact your relationships and fate.

Get a job, find romance, and meet the other residents of Camden- your new home.


Play as Ashlynn Phillips.
Ashlynn is suspicious, but desperate to make this new life work. Her life on
the surface was hard. She spent most of it fighting for everything and
going without. Now she's safe. Her mother is safe. They have food,
water, and shelter. Nothing will get in the way of that ever again, if
she has anything to say about it.

Features:

  • Customize your name and appearance (different skin tones and hair colors).
  • 4 career options with independent story lines.
  • 4 potential love interests that you can befriend or romance.
  • 3 potential friends and several people to interact with.
  • Branching paths from day one, making each play through unique. Every path promises different sides of the story, encouraging replay!
  • Spend time with any- and everyone, no matter who you romance, or which job you pick.
  • Several endings.

Romance options:

Jude Myers
You can usually find him at the bar with Sam, the closest thing to
family he has left. Or in the greenhouse tending to the plants with loud
grunge music from the 1990s shaking the walls. If you see him with any
tech, you should probably assume it’s contraband and say nothing

Gloria Miller
The sweet Community Affairs Supervisor who wants to keep everyone's
spirits up in these dark times. Born in Camden she isn't fully aware of
the harsh realities of the surface. Bored of living underground she
wants to either shake things up or escape.

Micah Everett
A perfectionist with an eloquent way of speaking, and a quiet voice. Insecure from a previous relationship which causes him to appear distant at first. Tries to throw himself into work as much as possible, and as the community’s lead doctor no one tries to stop him

Eva Turner
An overly friendly security officer full of charm, and a sad smile.
She'll tackle criminals all day, and then sweep you into her arms and
sing karaoke with you all night. Or she’ll challenge you to a race, then
feel bad that she didn’t let you win.

Welcome to Camden!

An underground utopia with fresh food, filtered air, and the coldest
water you’ll ever taste. Enjoy your spacious living quarters with enough
room for the whole family! We have all the amenities you could ever
dream of: a gym for your fitness, a library for your mind, and a bar for
socializing. Our community center is a hub of activity. Stop by in the
mornings for complimentary coffee and a friendly chat with your
neighbors. All events and meetings are held there as well!

Our massive space is taken up mostly by an impressive collection of
greenhouses that provide a wealth of resources for Camden. From clothing
to medicine, if we can grow it then it’s here. Never worry about fatal
power outages again. We use an advanced Geothermal energy system that is
as safe as it is efficient. Our impressive security and medical
departments keep us safe and healthy.

Camden welcomes you to your new, better life.

So I have a technical clarification question: I can figure out the rest of the stats, but what exactly is "Standing"?  Is that how much Camden likes/trusts/is willing to listen to Ashlynn or is it something else?

You are correct! It is basically your overall "approval" with the whole community. It's something that will change how things go later down the line. 

Thanks for putting up the Linux version ! Loved it and backed the Kickstarter.
