Death Trash is a beautifully animated isometric action RPG adventure set in a post-apocalyptic meatpunk world where cosmic horrors long for humanity and flesh grows from the ground.
The world of Death Trash is a very fleshy one. It takes place in a distant future where humanity travelled to the stars and unearthed cosmic horrors best left alone. The planet Nexus is where your story takes place – a post-apocalyptic world where ancient secrets of stone and flesh were unearthed and unleashed, causing the remnants of the civilization to seek shelter in enclosed habitats that are ruled over by robots.
You were part of one of these habitats, but due to you contracting a mysterious infection you have now been cast out into the wastelands, never to return. As you explore the wasteland looking for a cure you’ll meet humans, robotic sentries and the fleshy offspring of the worm. Some are friendly, some are hostile and you can kill pretty much any NPC you meet if you like (though you won’t make many friends that way). There’s lots to discover and you’ll find that not all monsters are monstrous – such as a giant Fleshkraken you meet that looks grotesque, but is just looking for a friend.
The gameplay in Death Trash blends classic Fallout-esque role-playing with fast paced skill-based combat. Its lore-rich post-apocalyptic isometric world feels fondly reminiscent of the early Fallout games too, but with a healthy dose of pulsating red flesh rather than radiation. It’s a beautifully crafted world that allows you to forge your own story while playing a meaningful part in the stories of the NPCs you meet (whether you’re helping them or executing them). Highly recommended.
