Dysmantle is a survival strategy game where you play a character emerging after the apocalypse. The world is now inhabited with dangerous creatures and you only have your bare hands to survive. It's novel because most items in the world can be destroyed for materials. You then craft and learn skills as you explore and solve environmental puzzles to advance.

As you progress you encounter and kill zombies and other creatures. You can collect items for crafting and cooking as well as learn new skills. Pushing further you can discover technology and ancient lost knowledge from hidden tombs with magic-like properties. Eventually you have enough resources to build your own outpost and establish a life for yourself. Here you can start farming for a more sustainable food source.

The game is on PC, but planned for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PS5.
