Encased - Alternative Gameplay Styles Trailer

Publisher Prime Matter and developer Dark Crystal Games have released an 'Alternative Gameplay Styles Trailer' for isometric dystopian sci-fi RPG Encased.

The video highlights some special playthroughs that a player can undertake, including being as dumb as a rock, killing everyone, not killing anyone, or never even talking to anyone.

The video and description can be found below, via Prime Matter.

It's true that most RPGs won't actually let you finish the storyline using a pure stealth or pure pacificist build, but that's not true of Encased. Dark Crystal Games created full narratives and story options for any and all starting stats you'd like to begin with, including being an idiot, or a total psycho. The Dome can be explored with any combination of alternative personality habits and players will still get a refreshing unique storyline. Some starting options that players can choose are:

  • Setting your intelligence as low as possible, giving you ridiculous combat options such as dancing like a fool.
  • Not talking to anyone, literally, and hiding permanently in the shadows.
  • Being a pacifist and using only non-lethal weapons.
  • Acting like a straight up psychopath and killing every. single. person.

Encased will leave Early Access and launch on September 7 for PC (Steam, Epic, GOG). For more on the game, you can check out the Preview Gameplay Trailer and Recruitment Trailer.
