A unique light and darkness mechanic
Whilst adorable and clumsy in the light, Murkors transform into powerful beasts when in the shadows. As the sun sets in each stage, choose how to combat the enemy and use light to your advantage to keep those pesky Murkors under control! Do you cross that chasm engulfed in shadow? Or can we get a bit more light in here??
Earn XP and farm your gear
The boss is coming, and you're on the clock! Complete randomized quests and challenges throughout each stage to prolong the boss' arrival and get yourself geared up with new weapons, abilities and tech. Earn XP, farm better gear, and head into the battle as strong as you can be. Chests are scattered throughout each stage - find and unlock as many as you can to improve your chances of lasting until sundown!
No two runs the same
Each run in Die After Sunset is completely unique - from the challenges you complete, the perks and abilities you are rewarded, to the chests available to loot. Quests and challenges arrive procedurally in each stage - it's up to you to decide which ones you can tackle to reap its rewards. The better you complete each challenge - the better your rewards. Synergize your weapons, gear and abilities each time ands build your unstoppable run!
Meta-progression is the best progression
Between stages, unlock a variety of new gameplay stats, items, abilities, and even playable characters! Enemies occasionally drop 'Mucus' which can be banked once per stage, if you can find the deposit. From minor upgrades like a faster dodge and double jump, to game changers like 2 banks per run and item vending machines!
