Beautiful Desolation Trailer: Stunning Isometric Visuals and Classic Gameplay

The Kickstarter-funded follow-up to Stasis is expected to release soon. New gameplay shows off the beautiful horrors we can expect.

After launching the isometric sci-fi horror game Stasis back in 2015, development crew The Brotherhood is now ready to show off its upcoming project: Beautiful Desolation.

As with Stasis, 2D, isometric-rendered environments will be front and center once again. This time, though, you’ll explore frigid climes and magma-covered mountains, as well as savanna- and jungle-inspired landscapes full of 80’s retro technology. 

Of course, it’s all a post-apocalyptic nightmare. Dr. Mark Leslie  a man out of time seeks to unravel mysteries and make tough moral choices.

The Brotherhood has stated that players can expect a point-and-click adventure with puzzle-solving, combat, and a non-linear story. While we don’t have a specific release date for the game, Beautiful Desolation is currently listed as releasing in “early 2020,” which indicates it should arrive sooner rather than later.

You can currently wishlist Beautiful Desolation over at GOG and Steam to receive release notifications.
