An immersive, high-octane strategy game that places you in command of the last shreds of humanity—marooned in deep space and hunted by vicious aliens. Played entirely from behind the controls of a future computer interface sitting high above the battlefield.

Chaotic Era is a highly-stylized grimdark action RTS, following a stranded human crew on an alien planet, with a unique, completely monochrome art direction inspired by the computer screens from movies like Alien, Blade Runner, and Starship Troopers.

It’s a game of quick decisions, devastating consequences, and endless panic as you struggle to stay alive in humanity’s hellish future. A fast-paced and unforgiving reimagining of the golden era of real-time strategy, Chaotic Era has been featured in publications like TechCrunch, Polygon, Wireframe Magazine, and more.

“You'll die early, and you'll die often.”
Wireframe Magazine

“It’s an RTS for our age, combining simple controls with complex, sometimes obscure systems, drawing on long-developing real-world anxieties and sci-fi solutions for its themes.”
Paste Magazine

“The main thing that immediately distinguishes Chaotic Era apart from its sci-fi RTS contemporaries is the game's distinctive art style; a minimalist latticework of sleek wire-frames, pulsing topographic texture maps, and white hot explosions”

"We left it all behind. Old Earth and its doomed children. Titan, Io, the floating cities of Venus. Mars' cursed wastelands..."

In the late 28th century, as the Solar System collapses, Earth’s corporate warlords launch thousands of starships in search of a new home, but the reality of deep space is far more horrifying than anyone could have imagined...
