May 28th 2020 – Kaliningrad, Russia – After an 11 year break in the Revival series, HeroCraft are ready to unveil the successor. Revival: Recolonization is an ever-evolving 4x strategy game set in a post-apoc version of Earth, where the world and its rules can change at key moments, creating a deep and highly replayable experience.


Press kit:

Closed Alpha is scheduled for Q3 2020 and sign-ups are available now via the game’s website.

Points to consider:

1) This is a story of two friends returning to their favourite game series in an attempt to prove they still have what it takes to create deep, replayable experiences after all these years. Read a more personal take from the lead game designer here:

2) A distinctive, if slightly idiosyncratic, setting. A lush, distorted version of Earth, where humanity found itself enslaved by a rogue A.I. and fearsome mechanical automatons roam the land.

3) Revival gives players unparalleled freedom to influence the game world by terraforming the landscape and fine-tuning the game rules. Each decision has consequences and the tyrant A.I. reacts accordingly.

Explore a transformed Earth, negotiate or conquer new territories and bring the light of civilization to regressing human colonies in order to prepare mankind for war with a despotic entity.

Enjoy an unprecedented level of freedom

Say ‘yes’ to meaningful replayability. Say ‘no’ to predictable and boring late game!

Revival generates a vast possibility space for you to play around with. From sudden weather changes to zombie infestations and bans on certain weapon types – boy, you are in for a surprise.

Adapt to new conditions with the help of the nuanced edict system that allows you to terraform the planet and fine-tune the game rules on specific regions of the map. Protect your settlement from changes by building special shield constructs or by accepting the blessings of your tribe’s totem tree.
