(Last Updated On: April 26, 2018)

When you hit your head against an invisible pane of glass in the middle of the desert, not only is it time to put together a full-blown research project but an entire sci-fi game for that matter. Encased is doing exactly that.

Combat will be largely turn-based with ample room for freedom of choice and creativity; all this from a varied ensemble with titles such as Divinity and Life is Feudal attached to the resumes of its members.
