About this game

Humanity is enslaved by an AI… which is awesome, because we’re on the right side of the conflict. Exploit puny humans to extract power and build your own empire! You’ll have to keep track of them to make sure they don’t succumb to exhaustion and hunger… although the weakest ones can always be thrown to the Bioreactor.
In other words, this is a indie resource management sim with rogue-lite elements, dramatic plot, and an abundance of pop culture references. Also, humor. Slaughter has never been so fun!

Key features:
1) Humor as dark as your ex’s heart. Immerse yourself in the life of a merciless tyrant!!
2) Resource management on steroids. Think fast, to the point, and abandon pity!
3) Rogue-lite (Almost roguelike) Every walkthrough is unique due to randomly generated events. And every failure is fatal — you’ll have to start over!
4) Easy to learn, hard to master. It only takes a couple minutes to figure out the game’s mechanics, but using them optimally is no small feat!

Core gameplay consists of transporting puny humans between various facilities using mechanical claws. They rest in one of the facilities and work in all the others. Puny humans are to produce energy for us (which is leaking constantly), they also have to reproduce and feed themselves. You need to plan your strategy and tactics in advance and track all your humans so that they don't die of exhaustion. The foremost roguelike element is that you can't save the game - you have to start from scratch every time. Besides that, a random event happens after every five feedings in the form of a text quest. A correct choice may provide some bonus, an incorrect one - well, you'll see! Many of the modifiers that you get due to the random events change the game's look significantly.

In the second campaign besides resource management you get a totally new "raid" mechanic. Send your humans on expeditions around a procedurally generated map and earn resources without any limits. Come on, you have to find the Time Machine lost in the wastelands of 3k-land!

It's an interesting game, however, I feel it would be better served with a slower speed setting, running at 0.6 or 0.75 speed. I've no complaint about the difficulty, but very often I feel the 20 sec allowed simply isn't enough for me to plan things out. It's not as if this is a real time strategy, there is a pause button, but it being at the corner of the screen, it is not easy to just spam it when I need time to think. Really wish the devs would consider the merits of a slower gameplay.

Really loved it, very entertaining and so creative, one problem I have is that it's INANELY HARD, I really like hard games though so it's not that big of a deal, but I just can't manage to get past day 8, but maybe i'll just figure it out over time, but something I would like to see is more randomeness in the situations that pop up, they get predictable, after about 2 days of playing it I know at least 1/4 of the situations that come up, so I'd like there to be more randomness and chance

Interesting concept, and I really like the art. However there is a big difference between a game being an enjoyable challenge and then just hard for the sake of being hard. Seems like it's mostly just memorizing patterns of what upgrades to get and what options to click on for the random events, which are ungodly punishing until you know the correct path for them. Just feels like a big incremental clicker game but with the added bonus of dying if you buy your machines in the wrong order.

I'm not agree, but it is your opinion

What's new

Made 'easy' chip in the first campaign even easier
