Trashed is a garbage management action-adventure title developed by Josh Presseisen that was released out of Steam's Early Access today by mistake. 

Right now less than 25% of the game's final content is in the pre-alpha, and core mechanics are still being finalized, with new content and art assets to be integrated as the game's development progresses. Presseisen has asked Valve if Trashed could move back to Early Access, but as of right now he's still waiting for a response. They apologize for the confusion it has caused.

What is Trashed?

As a foreman, players are on a distant planet and having to take over a mismanaged Waste Management Facility at Mega Dump Corp. Players will build structures from a top-down perspective and then protect them with weapons that can be found or bought on the planet. Vehicles can be used to travel across the planet faster or to help push trash into incinerators or recyclers. The game follows a storyline that will evolve as new missions, and contracts appear and are completed.

Players will also be able to terraform the planet, work through a day and night system, and explore 3 different planets. There will be weapons and upgrades for each planet. Check out the gameplay trailer below:

As of right now, there's a lot that still has to be accomplished, such as the inventory system, controller support and weapon upgrades. There's level work to be done on the other planets, more enemies, story dialogue, and vehicles to be created, the voice over for the main storyline to be added, and UI improvements and overall polish to be added in. 

If you would like to check out Trashed, it's currently available on Steam for $8.49 at 15% off. There's also a Discord if that's something you're into. For more information on Trashed, stay tuned to TechRaptor for more details.
