CORPUS EDAX - Announced

by Hiddenx, 08:36

Couchpotato spotted the first person RPG CORPUS EDAX - here's the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign:


CORPUS EDAX is an immersive first-person-melee RPG that takes place in a city on a distant planet. Fight with your body, improvised weapons and ingenuity.


  • A Skills and A.G.N.I.S. (Allure, Grit, Nerd, Intuition, Strength) system. Place objects in the world to reach places or climb over fences, creating your own path. Locked door? Hack it. Or lockpick it. Destroy it. Or alternatively, seduce or convince a guard to open it for you
  • Dialogue system that uses the stats of your character for special dialogue choices, as everything contributes to dialogue.
  • Physically-based characters so you can throw pipes at the legs, arms or head and they will react as they should. Pick up a chair, throw it, swing it or kick it onto someone.
  • Faction reputation system. Branching dialogues offer choice and consequence so players have different experiences
  • Personal reputation in the form of 3 traits - Insight, Rapacity and Reciprocity. Almost every action you do will contribute to one of these 3 traits, unlocking new dialogue 
    choices and reactions.


Almost a century ago, Humanity left Earth for a new planet due to catastrophic events rendering it unlivable to humans.

A previously unknown planet was found accidentally as it put itself in collision course with the Earth's ships. With nowhere to go, we settled here.

A new city was built, and with it, new rules and laws. Over the years its newly formed World Government struggled to rule a unified planet - one without borders, countries or nationalities - and an opposing faction called The Salvation was born out of anger and desperation for a better life.

After waking up from a medically-induced coma, you find yourself inside a newly built city called Corpus Edax. In one way or another, you'll get entangled in the fight for justice with The Salvation, as they see it, or in the fight for supremacy as you act as a double-spy for the Corpus Edax Security Forces.

Help shape the future of Corpus Edax, for a better tomorrow for your fellow Citizens (or not, your choice).
