The Aquatic Adventures Of The Last Human Is The Grim Tale Of Survival At The End Of The World

Set in the distant future, The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human portrays the end of civilization as we know it.

As a result of climate change and a weakening sun, humans are forced to live underwater in order to survive. The heat from the planet’s inner crust may have kept the deepest cities alive, but as resources began to dwindle in 2971. It was decided that humanity’s only chance of survival would be to send subaquatic spaceships to a nearby wormhole to look for habitable planets. However, things did not go as planned. When one of the ships (Argo9) returns millions of years later, it becomes clear that humans are now extinct.

COLUMNAE: A Past Under Construction Is A Post Apocalyptic Steampunk World That Needs Your Vote On The Square Enix Collective

Moonburnt Studio has just launched a Square Enix collective campaign for their truly beautiful non-linear point & click adventure game, that features silhouette graphics, “COLUMNAE: A Past Under Construction.”

The game is set in a post-apocalyptic steampunk world, ruined by a gradual environmental catastrophe that left the air on the surface unbreathable about 140 years ago. To escape the catastrophe, the rich built a haven for themselves high in the skies and those who could not afford it had to hide within its pillars. The story is focused on a society descended from people who couldn’t afford to inhabit Deus – the “city in the clouds”, in the moment when the ecological disaster was imminent. Deus is a closed town surrounded by a mechanical steel shell, and built upon 127 gigantic (over 600m/2000ft high) metal pillars – Columnae. Beneath them, a huge underground machinery, called Machina, was built with the purpose of automatically extracting and processing resources and sending them via pipes through Columnae and into Deus. This way, Machina was constructed to provide all the necessary resources to the people living in Deus indefinitely, so they would never have to leave it again – and to this day, they never did.

As a player, you are one of those unlucky many who survive in Columnae, the pillars of Deus. During the game, you’ll explore the Columnae filled with intrigue, the underground Machina holding secrets from the past, the anarcho-tribal society of The Cliffs, and the industrious Greenhouse Dome owned by The Baroness, all in order to find your way into the heaven on Earth – Deus.

Does Avalanche Studios And WB Games Have A Plan For DLC In Mad Max?

In today’s gaming marketplace it’s become more and more common for AAA developers to release a game with the intention of backing it up with downloadable content, so much in fact that we’re presented with the option to purchase a season pass even before the game has been released. And yet Avalanche Studios, creators of the critically acclaimed Just Cause franchise, decided to take a completely different approach with the release of Mad Max.

So far the only mention of DLC that I’ve come across are references to the pre-order bonuses, console exclusives, and the Rockstar Energy challenge car… that’s it. Whether or not Avalanche Studios is making a silent statement against the dependence on DLC in gaming or they’re simply wanting to make sure there’s a demand before investing the time, I honestly don’t know.

However this is what I know… The below content has been made available so far.

Even though Avalanche Studios hasn’t yet revealed their ultimate plans for Mad Max, I’d say there’s probably an expectation within the community that there will be more DLC coming our way. With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of what I’d love to see make an appearance in Mad Max.
