Next Earth: The Journey Trilogy™
is a real-time puzzle arcade adventure launching in Q3 2020 on PC (and open beta in August 2020). Set in the near future, the Earth is being evacuated to escape the threat of the Octians against which we are defenceless. The players control the evacuation ships, using time and space to run away from the Alien threat. With the onslaught of relentless waves of Octians the player must use their strategy, reflexes and speed to win the day.
Use the new hyperdrive technology to slow down or speed up space, collect enough fuel cells to open the hyper gate to move out all of your ships to safety before you run out of time. Use action tiles such as hints and extra time, or special tiles such as teleports and conveyor belts to help turn the tide.
Be part of the story as we find a new home for humanity away from the threat of the Octians.
We need YOU! Enlist now.
