Death Trash is a modern post-apocalyptic role-playing game with action elements and a focus on the narrative and dialogue. Use realtime combat, dialogue, item crafting and psi powers to explore and survive this post-apocalyptic mystic world with larger-than-life beings. Death Trash is still at an early stage of development and the next step will be a playable prototype.
History of Death Trash
Stephan, the creator of Death Trash, took part in a ‘Daily Art Streak’ in the summer of 2015 and experimented with pixel art and isometric perspective. He stumbled upon a post-apocalyptic world similar to that of Fallout, but the following days saw the addition of grotesque, science fiction and sexual references as well as trash talking, and slowly but with a strong pull, the world of Death Trash unfolded. Inspired by the roleplaying classic Ultima 7 with it’s focus on a living world as well as the narrative heavy Planescape: Torment, he knew this world had to be created as a roleplaying game with influences of both.
