It’s a pretty simple concept: Gamepedia is an encyclopedia of games. Well, now that we are talking over the internet we should actually be more precise and say wiki but you know, it’s free flowing information baby all through this series of tubes! Anyway, Gamepedia is surrounded by games all day so they know a few things, and one of those things is the indies.
We are going to get so many of those shirts and make a quilt, it’s gonna be sweet.

Along the way you will also earn achievements, complete quests, and fill your Bestiary with enemies.
As a bonus, you will also receive Tower of Elements, the original match-3, tower defense, role playing game that served as the inspiration for ReignMaker.

Please note: Strife is currently in Closed Beta.
Crashed and alone on a world mankind tried to leave behind, Darkout challenges players to survive on Illuna, in harsh, procedurally generated biomes, utilizing the game’s sandbox features to build shelters, craft weapons, and research new technologies.
You are not alone. Light-sensitive creatures prowling the landscapes become most active at night and in a world shrouded by clouds the security of day will never come, instead, twilight periods allow players minor security to explore, rebuild, and gather resources.
Darkout’s deep history manifests itself through logs left behind by others, some recent, while others hearken back to long-extinct natives of Illuna, offering glimpses into what events led up to the pandemonium that now persists.
How will you survive?
Signs of Life (Early Access)
Signs of Life is a sci-fi survival sandbox platformer with a combination of procedurally generated and hand-crafted content. You’ll explore mysterious locations, Mine blocks for resources, and meet strange (and some familiar) creatures, some of which don’t even want to kill you and eat your corpse.

You must terraform the entire world, craft armor, weapons, kits, and vehicles to help you explore and conquer. Starting only with a laser pick and the gear from your pod you must immediately start gathering resources to survive. At the absolute edge of space you will adapt or die! Good luck ArkCo Operative!
