Taking on the role of April Blazestrong you’ll face off against a relentless Murkor invasion - aliens hell-bent on taking over the earth. But don’t be fooled! While they may look cute in the sunshine, in shadow they’re a menacing and near-unstoppable force.

In a race against the inevitable sunset, it’s up to you to tool up with an astonishing array of items, gadgets and weapons in order to take down the boss. But remember, death is not the end – for every defeat will only make your stronger. Collect Mukus from the fallen Murkors and cash it in, back at base to empower yourself for your next run!

'Die After Sunset' Demo Now Available, Coming Soon to Steam Early Access!
