The Long Dead is a third-person shooter/action RPG video game designed by George Alder, developed by Morisoft and published by NINE100 Studios. It was released on September 10th, 2024 for the Anima 2 and Microsoft Windows. The game is set in the city of Calbury, Oregon thirty years after a mass firebombing of the United States, as well as it's subsequent firestorms. The protagonist of the game is Cooper, a customizable character that was born after the firebombings and doesn't know what life beforehand was like.
The gameplay consists of numerous elements, although the bulk of the gameplay revolves around gun battles taking place in a third person perspective. However, there are heavy ARPG elements, stemming from a stats-based loot system, a substantial skill tree and the freedom to build Cooper however the player wants to. There is also a focus on the Companion system, which allows the player to complete missions and explore Calbury with an AI controlled character. The player, and many of the companions, take residence in large apartment block called the Homestead, although the player can find numerous other settlements in the city that allow them to rest, trade and take on missions.
