In Wastenauts, robots
have taken over Earth, and humanity has been forced to flee to city-ships
hovering just above the surface. Players take on the role of Divers, mercenaries
hired to parachute down to the surface and gather resources for the floating
cities. Once there, they have a limited amount of time to grab what they can and
head back to the sky.
While hunting for salvage, players can make use of a library of ability cards,
craft gear to gain the upper hand, and augment their attacks in dozens of
different ways. Along the way they’ll find mechs, hostile scavengers, and other
baddies in the deck to fight. Coordination, strategy, and using the right tools
is the only way to make it to the end of the deck.
Players can play alone or with a team of friends - the game supports up to 4
player co-op, with each player bringing their own characters and cards.
Limitless combos are available as characters team-up with each other. Players
can also build their own adventures by unlocking monster cards, increasing their
loot by raising the difficulty.
- A cast of unique characters each with their own abilities, gear, and
- Hundreds of cards to unlock, including that one rare card that everyone
has but you
- Adventure Mode - we bring the deck, you bring the monsters. The harder
you make the game, the more rewards. If you win, of course.
- A leveling system complicated enough for the most die-hard min-maxers
