Prime Matter and Dark Crystal Games are pleased to announce that Encased – the upcoming isometric dystopian sci-fi RPG – will be launching on Tuesday, September 7, 2021 for PC. Accompanying today’s announcement are seven new screenshots from areas in the later stages of the game.

Set in an alternative 1976, Encased has players exploring a hostile area called The Dome, a sealed wasteland packed to the brim with amazing technology but also deadly enemies.

Players start off in one of five disciplines – science, engineering, security, management, or convict – which affects their initial stats, specialization, and opens (or prevents) unique dialogue within the game.

As with all classical RPGs, the game is a mix of exploration, combat, and quest interaction as you journey across the environment crafting supplies and weapons while trying to ensure each day is not your last.

As you level up, you’ll encounter six different factions that have sprung up in The Dome. Whether they become your friends or enemies is entirely up to you.

The game owes some of its spiritual inspiration to books like Roadside Picnic – as well as several classic post-apocalyptic RPGs – creating a familiar but unique environment that will appeal to both the veteran aficionado and RPG newbie alike.

Encased, which will be a digital PC release on Steam, Epic, and GOG is currently in Early Access where users can experience all the first act and part of the second.
