Exploring Unworthy life





Unworthy Life



Explore a story-driven third-person action-adventure role-playing shooter set in Mars 100,000 years ago in a decaying civilization as a Clockwork. The society is more than meets the eye.





Some of the best games I come across are purely by accident. Last day, I was looking at my twitter DM requests and there were many awesome games in there. But one struck out to me particularly. A game called Unworthy Life. It reminded me of Warframe immediately after looking through some gameplay. I reached out to the developer to know more about the game and I was just surprised with their replies. Unworthy Life is an upcoming indie story-driven third-person action RPG shooter from the first time developers Mechanical Centurion set for release in late 2020. The game has been in development for about 4 years now by a team of two aeronautical engineers! The amount of work they have put into the game is amazing! I also asked them about how it reminded me of Warframe but turns out, they are yet to try out Warframe: - This was a completely original idea.

They have drawn inspirations from sci-fi books, novels, and games like Dead Space, but have brought out something fascinating.





The game follows the robot (called clockworks in-game) called Ul155e5 (pron. Ulysses) living in Mars over 100,000 years ago. You work at a factory for an unknown entity called “The Mother” but do not know what the factory you work at manufactures. In this rapidly decaying world at the edge of extinction and collapse, you break out as a rebel and find the truths about the city and the society.


The game is wonderfully crafted and is quite ambitious in scale for a team of two, and the best part is, the game is almost complete. We do not know if the finished version will have a multiplayer feature, but for now, the story version looks quite cool enough. You’ll be exploring the factory where Ul155e5 works in and the city where most clockworks like him are considered the lower class and more or less, slaves, and the outer boundaries of the city with rich flora and fauna. Fun fact: The team even consulted biologists just to create models for the different flora and fauna that occupies the Red Planet. The result: A rich world for you to explore.


A word of caution here, this is no Bethesda or CD Projekt Red game. Don’t expect a huge world like Skyrim or Witcher. Although the deserts and the caves look similar to the Plains of Eidolon from Warframe, we cannot expect them to create a massive world like that. But, even still, they have done a pretty good job at making a world for the players to sink into.


The game also features a fairly decent amount of RPG elements and skill augmentations. You can and have to replace your parts with better parts for better performance and skills using cyberbucks, the game’s main currency system.





From the technology used to models and environment, it is clear that their engineering expertise has heavily influenced the game’s designs. Mechanical Centurion is currently doing an IndieGoGo fundraiser for their game to help them further the game’s development and polish it out to its best. The game is getting a demo in late September this year but sources say that the demo would be available only to backers in their Indiegogo campaign. If you are looking to help a developer realize their dreams then this is the perfect game to support. Go check them out.
