Chaotic Era is an atmospheric strategy game inspired by classic science fiction, following a stranded human crew on an alien planet.

At its core, Chaotic Era is a minimalist, lightweight, action-packed reimagining of the golden era of real time strategy. Chaotic Era has been featured in publications like TechCrunch, Polygon, Business Insider, Wireframe Magazine, and more.

"We left it all behind. Old Earth and its doomed children. Titan, Io, the floating cities of Venus. Mars' cursed wastelands..."

In the late 28th century, as the Solar System collapses, Old Earth’s corporate warlords launch thousands of starships in search of a new home, but the reality of deep space is far more horrifying than anyone could have imagined...

Take command of your crew, land on a new planet and scavenge for resources to keep your shipwrecked team alive. 

In the world of Chaotic Era, energy is scarce. Use your reserves strategically to power life support, build weapons and defences, uncover hidden territory, and research new technology.

Plan carefully. Your interstellar trip has awakened unknown terrors from beyond. Waves of monsters emerge from the shadows at night as a mysterious, interdimensional species follows humanity from world to world.


  • Stunning, unique art direction.
  • A fresh take on classic real time strategy mechanics
  • Beautiful UI inspired by 80s sci-fi classics like Alien and Blade Runner. 
  • Rich, new science fiction universe with detailed world-building.
  • Procedurally generated star systems for maximum replayability.

gotta say it wasnt very obvious to me how to play. but looks really nice. im sure it will be a great rts by the time the masses get it. could you please improve or add a tutorial and maybe separate the story from the gameplay instructions so its easy to look up what you need to do. you might want to add launching on fullscreen in windows too by default. now you have to do alt-enter, which is a bit of a hassle. 

Great feedback – we’re working on more onboarding improvements and doing our best to balance guiding the player with giving them space to figure out the game as they go. Appreciate you giving it a shot and stay tuned for more updates as we head towards our full release!

how can i change my resolution? the pop-up window is so small, i don't see higher resolution in settings.

hey seth, we’re adding video, audio and sensitivity settings ASAP to help with that! feel free to head over to the discord if you have more questions: https://discord.gg/HPB2mrw7Xy

Is this a single player or multiplayer game?

Doesn't start on MacOS Ventura (2019 16" MacBook Pro i9) just sits on desktop with spinning mouse and then I have to Force Quit.

thanks for flagging this - going to test it out and let you know what we find.

just tested it on similar set ups (including ventura) and it’s working over here - but i’m sure we can get you up and running.

head over to the “game-feedback” channel in our discord and we can troubleshoot this for you: https://discord.gg/HPB2mrw7Xy


we identified and fixed this issue in the latest build – seemed to be affecting certain intel macs only.

in case anyone from the future is reading these comments and wondering; everything is good to go with the mac version.
