Jaws Of Extinction™
DEVELOPMENT & COMMUNITY
KYE Creations are all about the community getting involved with feedback and ideas on mechanics and features we are developing during our alpha stages. We realise not everyone who purchases alpha games wants to help test and progress game development, but we would appreciate anyone playing the alpha version to report any bugs or contact our team on the many platforms available, including Steam, Discord or social media.
WHAT IS THE CURRENT STATE OF THE GAMEJaws of Extinction is currently in its alpha stages, this is a state of the game, that is still heavily in development and not released on Steams official Early Access program. Our store is currently hidden from the Steam client base, because we feel, as a team, that JoE is NOT currently ready for public consumption and should only be purchased if you wish to join in on testing the game in early stages.
The game has many issues, including bugs with mechanics, missing content and performance related issues on low and midrange machines.
If you wish to ask the community if the game is playable on your current system set up, we suggest joining our Steam or Discord community, links provided below.

WHEN WILL THE MAIN STORY BE AVAILABLEAs each protagonist character is released we will also be releasing an introduction story (Single-Player) level (optional to play) teaching you the basics of the game and the characters abilities. We also have a team of four story artists that are hot on the button of creating, all types of quest, enviromental naratives, character stories and the main story and lore to Jaws of Extinction.
The main story will be released in chapters (Non DLC & FREE Updates) to make sure that each part of the story works well and progresses in single player and multiplayer.

Alpha Roadmap 2020
BEFORE YOU PURCHASE: An important message from the dev team
In the spirit of our ethos of transparency and integrity we want you to know that our game is at ALPHA stage in EARLY ACCESS and will therefore contain many bugs and have performance issues on low to mid-end machines. Weâ™re really proud of how it plays so far (itâ™s a lot of fun!) but if your rig DOES NOT meet the RECOMMENDED spec then the game may not perform well and as much as we appreciate your support we would suggest that you wait until later in development before you invest your money. We donâ™t want you buying something thatâ™s going to disappoint you.
Please also be aware that multiplayer/Coop is not yet implemented. This is under development and testing is planned for Q4 2020 / Q1 2021.
About the Game
WHAT WILL YOU DO TO ENSURE THE SURVIVAL OF THE HUMAN RACE?Jaws Of Extinction (JoE) is a story-driven, single-player and multiplayer, horror-survival game that plays like a survival RPG style hybrid. Your story begins on a large, open-world island known as Eden-Nadir; a place renowned for its beauty and thriving wildlife.
You will be faced with decisions that you may not wish to make as you battle against terrifying infected locals, rogue military units, dangerous native wildlife, exposure to the elements, and the threats posed by other playersâincluding your own conscienceâ¦
Play single player, co-op with up to 4 friends or multiplayer (population planned for up to 50 players). Follow the storyline and uncover the dark secrets of Eden-Nadir or go off the beaten track and simply survive in the huge, open-world, hand-crafted environment.
A CAPABLE THREATThe infected can do almost everything you can doâclimb, vault, run, and even open doors. To get an edge, players must use stealth, cunning and the appropriate equipment to survive.
CLASSIC DESIGN, NEW HORRORThe infected are not reanimated undead. They are conscious and completely aware of what is happening, but have no control over their actions. Screaming in pain, they are slaves to the fungal parasite seen protruding from wounds on their bodies.
HEADSHOTS? ROOKIE MISTAKE!Headshots will spread a cloud of hazardous fungal spores. The best way to eliminate the infected is by damaging the heart. Take mercy on them.
FEAR THE RAINInfected are attracted to water and become extremely dangerous when exposed to it. Every trip to a reliable watering hole carries risk, and be wary of straying too far from safety when dark clouds are overhead. The skies will betray you in other ways too. Beware of flocks of carrion birds that will give away your position.
IMMERSE YOURSELF!What will be your profession? You can build, craft, trade, farm, hunt, fight, scavenge, loot, ambush and stealâ¦ itâ™s up to you! How will you choose to survive?
EXPLORE AND CLAIM VAST LANDSCAPESThe island of Eden-Nadirâ™s diverse biomes range from sweeping lavender and corn fields to sun-dappled forests and beautiful seashores which feed into murky swamps. If your looking to settle a more urban environment, then the island is dotted with deserted towns, fortified cities, even quaint villages and picturesque countryside retreats. All waiting to be claimed.
