"From the arrogance of Mankind a new life is born.
This new life shall pave the way.
The future shall be pure.
The old world shall be cleansed.
The Evolved shall inherit the Earth."

No Human - 2033

Posthuman Saga is a tactical survival adventure set in the  post-apocalyptic world of Posthuman. You are a survivor in a near-future Europe that has collapsed under the weight of its own political errors in the wake of a bloody class-war fueled by genetic modifications. 

You play an experienced member of the Fortress' militia, sent out beyond the defensive perimeter to explore and hopefully reconnect with outposts the Fortress has lost touch with, all while searching for salvageable sites along the way. You have to forge across a crumbled land where resources are sparse and mutants roam the ruined mansions and forests alike.

Players win by completing various objectives that suit different characters and playing styles. It has an emphasis on tactical choices on two levels: the journey expressed through an innovative modular tile map puzzle and the individual story and combat encounters. The latter are fast, card-based affairs involving tough choices with future consequences. Posthuman Saga boasts over one hundred finely crafted story scenes with a simple, push-your-luck mechanic that supplements the emergent narrative afforded by the game. Mutation is a way of life in the Posthuman world, and it can have its advantages, but it can easily get out of control…

Posthuman Saga is on KICKSTARTER from now till June 15, 2018 and a funding goal of $30,000.
