In a steampunk London, during Jack the Ripper's killing spree, all the inhabitants of the city have recurrent nightmares every night. A wizened old man, draped in colorful clothing and strange amulets, knocked at your door. He told you he knows the way to stop these nightmares, and free everyone. The cure is buried in the sewers, protected by members of a strange cult, eager to sacrifice you to their alien Other Gods, or feed you to one of the horrible creatures that haunt the sewers.
This is a first person dungeon crawler, in which you are investigating the London sewers about this epidemic of nightmares, while other creatures try to kill you. The underground is randomly generated, so every playthrough is different. The player can be one of many character classes: you can be a member of a street gang, a scholar of the hermetic arts or a scoundrel that lives in the thin line between light and dark, or many other classes.
There will be an online marketplace to trade the items you will find in the dungeon with other players playing The Sewer. Development of the game is already underway, and will continue even after the first release of the game, to add new features and enhancements.
While the game is being developed, we're going to use temporary 3D models. Until the modelling studio can be paid (which amounts to half of the costs of the project itself), we'll be forced to use these, so the screenshot don't represent the final graphical appearance of the game. Updates will be added (often!) here and on the game's website ( http://sewer.sfrajone.org ).
The game will be developed using the Unity 3D engine and will be multiplatform (Windows, Mac, Linux) and will run also on mobile device (iOS and Android).
