Encased is a classic, isometric RPG in the vein of classics like Wasteland and the Fallout series, by indie developer Dark Crystal.
Set in a dystopian environment, explore a hostile wasteland, level up your character, and join one of the forces in the ruined world that survived through the horrific Incident, isolated from the rest of the world. Start as a member of the CRONUS Corporation, and embark on a one-way trip under the Dome you live in. Avoid monsters, mutants and search for unique artifacts, all the while staying away from radiation and other anomalies. Level up your character to be a combat expert or a smooth-talking operator, and recruit some companions to help you on your journey.
