Basingstoke (2018) is a tense and brutal roguelike video game, combining elements of stealth and action. Explore the smoldering ruins of apocalyptic Basingstoke, where you will be waited by the revived zombies and ferocious alien monsters. Destroy enemies that stand in your way, create items that will help you in your mission – quickly get out of Basingstoke.
The player must escape an invasion of deadly aliens on foot, using their “wits and cunning”. The player will not be able to use guns, only improvised gadgets. The ultimate objective is to escape the town of Basingstoke and get “as far away from it as you possibly can”. However, the game does not have a health bar, and players die if they are hit once by the aliens.
It is unclear if the game takes place in the same universe as Revenge of the Titans, but the game’s name was based on the initial town where the aliens invaded in that game, where it was included “as a joke”. When aliens suddenly invade the town, the player character is trapped and must figure out how to escape alive.
