"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

Chaotic Era is an atmospheric real time strategy game inspired by classic science fiction.

Named one of the most anticipated indie games of 2021 by Polygon, Chaotic Era is now available in Early Access for PC and Mac.


"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, Old 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...

Take control of your ship's crew, landing on a new planet and scavenging for resources to keep yourselves alive. 

In the world of Chaotic Era, energy is scarce. Use your reserves strategically to power life support, build weapons and defences, uncover hidden territory, and research new technology.

Plan carefully. Waves of monsters emerge from the shadows at night as a mysterious, interdimensional species follows humanity from world to world.

Chaotic Era is an ambitious and rich new universe inspired equally by sci-fi classics like Alien and Blade Runner; and legendary games like SimCity, Starcraft, and Civilization.

Explore humanity's apocalyptic 28th century future in a thoughtfully designed world built by dedicated fans of science fiction.


  • Stunning, unique art direction.
  • A fresh take on classic real time strategy mechanics.
  • Beautiful UI inspired by 80s sci-fi classics like Alien and Blade Runner. 
  • Rich, new science fiction universe with detailed world-building.
  • Procedurally generated planets for maximum replayability.
