Dark Crystal Games and Prime Matter promise “enormous freedom of choice” for Encased, an RPG set during and after the end of the world.
Choose your own apocalypse
The Encased story is set before, during, and after an apocalypse in an alternative vision of the 1970s after humanity discovers The Dome, a giant zone left by an unknown civilization colloquially known as The Forefathers.
Players begin their journey with one of five disciplines – science, engineering, security, management, or convict – which affects both their initial stats, specialization, and opens (or prevents) unique dialogue within the game.
However, the starting mission turns into a disaster as a strange anomaly of incredible proportions – The Maelstrom – goes out of control, cutting all communication with the outside world and plunging The Dome into chaos.Prime Matter
