SEATTLE – May 12, 2021 – Fractured Veil, the survival game set in a future Hawaii ravaged by time, technology, and mutants from Paddle Creek Games, embraces the apocalypse with an Aloha state of mind on PC via Steam Early Access in Q2 2022.

One hundred years after a teleportation system fractured reality and caused a global apocalypse, Maui’s not much of a tourist destination anymore. Horrific mutants roam the Valley Isle’s breathtaking beaches and tropical forests. The only non-mutated humans on the deserted island awaken in a facility created by a shadowy tech company. The good news: each time they die, they resurrect as a new clone. The bad news: being killed by mutants still hurts!
Make the most out of life in a fallen paradise alongside hundreds of other cloned survivors. Scour the dense 64 square kilometer map for valuable crafting resources, potential allies, and loot-filled dungeons full of useful items and challenging foes.
Lay down roots by creating a base with an intuitive building interface for much-needed shelter from the elements, mutants, and less-than-friendly fellow clones. Claim land by building upgradeable totems capable of protecting structures and hard-earned loot while offline. In Fractured Veil, fun comes first. Forget turning off the game then coming back later only to find hours of work stolen or destroyed.
Forge alliances with fellow tropical wastelanders and venture into NPC-controlled safe zones to take on quests and trade with vendors. Complete multi-step quests to learn more about the local culture and strange circumstances that led to civilization’s downfall alone or with allies. Earn experience to unlock talents that increase stamina, health, and crafting abilities that might just make surviving another night a possibility.

Those tempted to make other survivors’ lives hell should note: someone’s always watching. AI-controlled drones patrol the map, broadcasting the action to the official Fractured Veil website, Twitch, and Steam pages. Tune in to catch up on events happening around the in-game multiverse, like deadly dungeon runs with top streamers or all-out wars between clone groups. Then hop into a veil and travel to another reality to experience life on a different server, complete with different loot.

Fractured Veil combines the best aspects of survival sims and MMORPGs to create an unpredictable social sandbox to explore,” said Ryan Wianko, Project Director, Paddle Creek Games. “Hunt mutants on Maui’s famous white-sand beaches, build a community with friends, or hop through veils to visit other servers: our apocalypse has something for everyone.”
Fractured Veil will be available on PC via Steam Early Access in Q2 2022. A Kickstarter campaign is planned for Q3 2021. For more information on Fractured Veil, visit the official website, wishlist on Steam, and follow the official Twitter account.
