Welcome to the fascinating world of Under a Rock, an upcoming procedural open-world survival craft game that promises an unparalleled gaming experience. Immerse yourself in a primitive yet perilous environment where oversized wildlife roams, Neanderthals still exist, and curses hold real power. We invite you to embark on an extraordinary adventure filled with exploration, crafting, building, fighting, taming, hunting, and so much more.
Discover a Hidden World
Under a Rock transports you to a hidden world, lost to history and accessible to only a few intrepid explorers. As an early nineteenth-century explorer, you find yourself crash-landed in this mysterious realm after your hot air balloon gets torn apart by a supernatural storm. Brace yourself for a unique evolutionary path where danger lurks at every corner.
Unveil Secrets and Lift the Curse
Your mission is twofold: uncover the fate of a previous expedition and find a way to lift the curse that shrouds the land. Delve into the depths of this unknown world, gather treasures, artifacts, and native wildlife to impress the prestigious Society of Explorers. And remember, the journey is not just about reaching the destination; it’s about enjoying every moment of exploration and survival.
Procedural Worlds of Wonder
Each time you start a new game, a procedurally generated world awaits you. With approximately 64 square kilometers of uncharted territory, these unique worlds are yours to conquer. Explore mysterious caves, plunge into underwater realms, and navigate landscapes teeming with life. The best part? You can freely travel between worlds while keeping all your progress and gear intact.
Dynamic AI for Immersive Gameplay
Under a Rock strives to make your experience even more captivating with its advanced AI engine. Expect the unexpected as AI characters remember your actions, respond to your behavior, and interact with other AI entities. Watch as Neanderthal clans raid your base for the slightest provocation or befriend curious dodos on your journey. The evolving relationships between different AI factions will keep you on your toes and guarantee countless surprises.
Enjoy the thrill of exploring the hidden world with friends in cooperative play. Gather a team of 1-10+ players and conquer challenges together. For those seeking an extra challenge, an experimental mode allows hosts to increase the player count. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable multiplayer experience that pushes the boundaries of survival gaming.
Build Your Dream Base
Unleash your creativity with the two seamless build modes in Under a Rock. The default mode allows you to construct solid structures using available resources. Alternatively, the advanced mode, known as Ghost Building, lets you plan and prioritize your base construction. Friends can contribute resources to accelerate the building process, ensuring that your base takes shape effortlessly.
Reclaiming Lost Glory
Did your meticulously crafted base fall victim to destruction? Fear not! Ghost Building comes to the rescue. Activate the auto-saved blueprint or a manually saved version, and all destroyed elements will reappear as ghost elements. With the help of friends, restore your base swiftly by inputting the required resources. Say goodbye to the tedious task of rebuilding from scratch!
Sharing the Blueprint
Under a Rock aims to foster a sense of community by enabling the sharing of construction blueprints. Save your blueprints and share them with other players for inspiration and convenience. While you can’t pack down your base, these blueprints make it easy to establish campsites, outposts, or even grand bases in new locations.
Unlimited Building Freedom
Under a Rock offers unparalleled freedom when it comes to building. Construct your base on the ground, up in the trees, within caves, or even underwater. The only limit is your imagination, as we encourage you to unleash your creativity and defy the wildlife that may challenge your architectural mastery.
PvP or Peaceful Exploration
The host has the power to set the rules in Under a Rock, including enabling or disabling player versus player (PvP) combat. Whether you seek a cooperative adventure or prefer the thrill of PvP battles, the game caters to your preference.
