Featured Game
s

Eufloria RPG (Omni Systems) brings action RPG and exploration gameplay to the massively successful Eufloria universe. The game is inspired by classic roguelike games, action RPGs and genre favourites like Xenon II. However, our game adds a Euflorian twist: Players control a seedling ship that evolves over time, depending on their path and choices through the game. Wherever the ship goes it encounters fascinating enemies, establishes new floral colonies and repopulates the areas it finds with seeds taken from enemy colonies. As a result the game visuals transform based on player interaction.
