DROSS FPS Roguelike game for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC is due to make its way into Realms Deep 2023. Thanks to Team_Derelict for their amazing and hard work. Which will be released on Steam in 2024.
So, you’ve heard of DROSS and you’re wondering what all the hype is about? Let me break it down for you in simple terms.
DROSS takes place in a futuristic, eerie setting. Linux players wake up on a desolate planet that seems completely abandoned. The world around you looks like a scene straight out of an Aliens movie. There’s an almost endless wasteland that’s constantly hit by storms and strong winds. In the midst of this chaos, there’s a single outpost that you can barely spot.
Now, that’s your first challenge in the game. You need to get to the outpost, and your oxygen is running low. The journey’s intense, but once you reach that outpost, there’s a twist. Instead of being a safe haven, it’s an entrance to an underground facility. And it’s not just any facility. This one is also full of alien bugs known as the Dross.
Now, the fun begins. Inside this facility, every move you make determines your fate. Since these creatures are not the kind of creatures you’d want to hang out with. And they’re everywhere. Your primary goal? Get rid of them and discover the secrets hidden within the facility.

One of the best things about DROSS is its combat style. You’ve got two main approaches. First, you can be sneaky. Avoid making noise, use the surroundings to your advantage, and try to outsmart the DROSS. If that’s not your style, you can always go in guns blazing. Use the heavy artillery, make things explode, and watch the them scatter. Remember, these creatures are smart; they change their behavior based on what you do. So, always be on your toes!
What about gear? Well, the arsenal at your disposal is truly expansive. From simple pistols to heavy weaponry and explosives, you have a lot to choose from. Plus, you can also upgrade and customize your gear, ensuring that you’re always ready for whatever the DROSS might throw at you.
The best part? Every time you venture into this facility, your game will be unique. While the layout keeps changing, with new paths and mysteries to unravel each time. This also ensures that you’re always on the edge of your seat, not knowing what’s around the corner.
And let’s not forget about the DROSS story. Since there’s more to this than just shooting aliens. As you go deeper, you’ll also uncover the reasons behind your unfortunate landing on this planet and the origin of the infestation. Guided by your trusty companion Vanth, you’re due to dive into the heart of the complex, seeking the truth that lies within.
