Gaia Beyond is a handcrafted 2D Action-RPG, an exploration mix built around the core features fighting, mining and trading.
Your decisions are footprints within a vast non-linear solar system. Forge alliances among numerous factions and develop relations with hundreds of NPCs. Focus on trading and personal interaction or embark on science missions, hunt down pirates and collect their bounty. Infiltrate dubious factions and uncover secret plots and dark menaces.
- Realtime Open World
- Unique 4K Graphics
This game lets you explore a massive 2D Open World in realtime - no loading times in between. Every part of the universe is alive and active at every moment.
We love gaming and we always wanted to realize our own vision of a good game. Back in 2011, this project was started with the motivation to unify the 'good old' mechanics that had been around for decades and to give them a nice polishing with today's visual and technical standards. It was influenced by games like Fallout 1 + 2, Diablo, Grand Theft Auto, Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Escape Velocity, Deus Ex & Co. Creating a game only half as good as those titles is a damn challenge, but we will make the best effort to create something you'd enjoy!It's the age of machines. What does "handcrafted" mean?
Our approach is to handle as much as we can on our own. In the early days of development, urban sounds were transformed into laser beams, music was played with real instruments, a game engine was created. All objects, backgrounds and characters are handdrawn. Keeping things in our hands brings us closer to realise the full vision - and of course it's freaking fun!
