An artificial wormhole is detected hurtling through space on a collision course with the Alliance’s lone star. Its arrival would mean the end of every species inside of Alliance territory. Legendary pilots, Warp Squad 16, were deployed and tasked with travelling through the wormhole to shut it down from the inside.

They failed.

And their fate remains a mystery.

Now, it’s up to you. As the wormhole closes in, you are the Alliance’s last chance of survival. Step through a portable Wormhole, armed with ancient technology and your own tenacity, and prepare to die. Because for you death does not mean the end. It is a chance to live again — to remember, adapt, and overcome.

It’s time to find out what happened to Warp Squad 16 and to earn your redemption. It’s time to step up and save the Alliance from whatever evil is attempting to destroy it.

It’s time to kick some galactic ass.

In 2022 we announced a $2M seed round with Animoca Brands & GameFi Ventures.

Since then, we have been working deeply with our partners to bring to life the Wanderers video game.

What is Wanderers?

Wanderers is a sci-fi action rogue-lite that combines strategic deck building elements with a story-driven campaign that changes each season.

Think of it like: Hades with a trading card game twist.

Step through the Wormhole and prepare to battle across a series of unique planets. Choose your weapons, customize your deck, and prepare to die. Each new life grants you new chances to adapt and uncover what really happened to the legendary heroes who came before you.

Before each run, you curate a deck of cards to encounter on your journey. These cards are called “RAM” or Random Access Memories. Each RAM card contains the memories of a mind superior to yours. So you can get a hero’s edge, minus the effort.

This feature offer players a mechanism to invest in and influence the random nature of rewards that are a core characteristic of rogue-likes. This control balances the unpredictability inherent in the genre, giving players a more profound sense of agency and strategy.
