Last Oasis Release Date
The developers at Donkey Crew are unleashing their battle cry as their woodpunk-inspired nomadic survival MMO, Last Oasis, is set to enter early access on Thursday, March 26. When the game hits Steam, players will learn to keep moving as the world is burning and dying.
Set on Earth, thousands of years in the future where a cataclysmic event destroyed the moon and halted the rotation of Earth, survival is everything. Two harsh environments, desert and ice, straddle a narrow habitable strip of land that slowly moves as the planet rotates around the sun.
In order to survive, life must keep moving on the large walking city, Flotilla. Unwilling nomads, are sent into the passing oases to gather resources necessary for the city’s operations. Such dangerous missions leave few survivors.
