    A post-apocalyptic world where cosmic horrors crave humanity but meet punks with shotguns. Influenced by cyberpunk, post-apocalyptic classics, science fiction, horror and dark fantasy.

    Death Trash is a semi open world singleplayer role-playing game with handcrafted levels, a grotesque story campaign and optional splitscreen co-op. The game features realtime gameplay with ranged and melee combat, stealth, multiple choice dialogue, an inventory full of items and Fleshworms, a crafting system and social skills like pickpocketing and puking.

    Travel through the gritty post-apocalyptic wasteland by world map and explore hand-painted organic locations. Meet exciting characters: Talk to the Fleshkraken, visit the Puke Bar or pickpocket stuff from that old naked guy. Customize your own character through stats and making choices. Experience the story and discover side quests. Fight against machines and larger-than-life monsters -- or become their friend.

    Fans of Fallout and those interested in post-apocalyptic fiction with a weakness for fast-paced action can get it without hesitation. However, if plot and quest decisions are of the uttermost importance for you, Death Trash clearly has too little to offer at this time.

    Death Trash is literally a game about PIXELATED MEAT. Even though it is heavily influenced by Fallout, it seems to lack any similarly deep moral and philosophical ambiguity, memorable NPCs or open-ended questlines (in its Early Access state, at least) and instead focuses mainly on delivering an imposingly grotesque post-apocalyptic atmosphere filled with blood, vomit, machines and MEAT. Its Meatpunk aesthetics definitely manage to win us over in this EA release, as well as make us look forward to how the game's content will be further enriched in the future. [Early Access Review]
  3. Death Trash is a singular and unique vision. I don't know how to say, "If you like X or Y then you'll like this". Maybe Fallout (indeed, this game's genesis is in a jokey fanart tweet about making one's own Fallout). Maybe text games on Itch about teeth and skin. People worship the meat like a deity. They eat it raw. And you are, somehow, infected by it. You can talk to it. My biggest disappointment is that my quest to understand the flesh was cut short so quickly - it's maybe four or five-ish hours at the moment, about a quarter of the predicted full runtime, though the "main" questline hit its under construction roadblock after about 2 hours for me. Death Trash evidently has more secrets to wallow in, and it's worth wading in. It's both disgusting (in a good way) and absolutely hypnotic. [Early Access Review]
  4. As an Early Access title, Death Trash is still incomplete, with a few more chapters still in development and waiting to be unveiled. But even then, it’s a game that’s incredibly easy to sink your teeth into. Its backdrop of debauchery, monster flesh and body horror, while not altogether foreign, conjures a compelling image of humankind in a parasitic relationship with our post-apocalyptic host. We often hear of hostile worlds that want to kill us, but not so much of civilisations that are slowly and literally devouring the planet, as they rip apart the still-breathing planet muscle by muscle. Death Trash shows us that our insatiable hunger makes us the biggest threat, even as the world is in the throes of death. [Early Access Review = 85]
