Clans

is a new noir survival roguelike game from Mandragora and Daedalic Entertainment about staying alive when there is no reason to.

PLOT and gameplay

Players assume the role of Perry, the possibly last human being trying everything to survive in the eponymous Skyhill Hotel. 

The "Skyhill" is a luxury hotel, in which Perry have recently rented a penthouse in. But suddenly, something happens, something evil, something inexplicable --and the building fills with monsters and mutants. The only way out is the main doors in the ground floor.

Perry´s major goal is to reach the ground floor of the 100-storey building and to survive this nightmare. He can only achieve this if he skilfully budgets food, medicine and other supplies, which he finds in the mutant-infested floors and rooms of Skyhill.

The crafting and upgrading of food, weapons and supplies is a vital element in Skyhill. Therefore, the mere search for a chocolate bar can be terribly nerve-wrecking when you're on the verge of starvation (you might be familiar with this from your offices).

To make sure that the exploration of the hotel with its multiple rooms won't be easy, every room, enemy, obstacle and object will be randomly placed with every new start of the game.
