Unworthy Life - Indiegogo Campaign Started
The Indiegogo campaign for Unworthy Life has started and they are asking for $10K.
Unworthy Life is a story driven 3D action RPG with 15 – 20 hours of gameplay. The game is 80% complete and will release on PC and console in approximately 12 months time (September 2020).
Unworthy Life has many levels and environments which include two open world areas to explore. Players will engage in combat, hacking and physics puzzles as well as upgrading their robot with modular parts and learning or developing new abilities through a skills tree system.
It will be usually be possible to tackle the same situation in several different ways. Our protagonist robot Ul155e5 is a canvas that we hope you can use to play and navigate the story of Unworthy Life in your own preferred way.
We the team behind Unworthy Life have been working on this game for about four years. Our goal as a small team has always been to push the limits of what can be achieved by independent designers on a first game. We also wished to take our skills (mathematics, coding, physics, design) earned from a background in mechanical engineering and apply it to the development of an exciting and modern PC and console game inspired by the 80s science ficition films we grew up with as well as more recent Sci-fi/RPG games we came to love as adults.
We could given enough time probably finish the game and make Unworthy Life into something we really want to play and that we will personally love. However, this has never been about us. We want to make a game that many people will play and love. By backing this campaign you help us get some much needed hardware to smoothly finish the development of this game in 4K resolution, pay for bespoke professional music, allow us to pay talented voice actors and provide the first little bit of money towards the studio support we need to release this game for consoles.
- Over 15 hours of gameplay.
- 15 levels including 2 open world levels.
- Customisable modular robot protagonist.
- RPG elements including levelling, unique equipment, exploration, decision making, alternative paths.
- Hacking minigames
- Physics puzzles.
- Secret locations.
- Fully 3D gaming in 4K resolution

Unworthy Life - Sci-Fi Shooter/RPG Announced
The 3D shooter-RPG Unworthy Life is coming to Indiegogo and Kickstarter in the coming months.
First Look at New Sci-fi RPG “Unworthy Life” Coming to PC
Unworthy Life takes place on the fourth planet in the Solar System, one hundred thousand years ago. A technologically advanced society is on the brink of collapse due to the severe and prolonged exploitation of their planet's resources. Ul155e5 is a “clockwork” a robot who works in a factory called “the Mother”.
A clockworks salary consists of “cyber-bucks” which is both their currency and what keeps them alive being that cyber-bucks are used as charge for their batteries and to purchase replacement parts. Any excess cyber-bucks a clockwork has they spend on simulations where they can escape their lives and be spirited away to a lush green planet. None of the clockworks are aware of what is produced in “the Mother” and they are too scared to ask. One day, by mistake, accident or fortune, an event occurs in the factory, which challenges the consciousness of Ul155e5 changing its life radically. Upon learning what is produced in “the Mother”, Ul155e5 heads down a path of resistance eventually leading it to join a squad of rogue revolutionaries which fight back against “the Mother”. Throughout this journey Ul155e5 will experience a number of challenging situations which can be tackled in several different ways. The greatest challenge that awaits Ul155e5 will be to take down the puppet master that controls all of society.
The two brothers behind Unworthy Life set out with the goal of raising the bar of what could be achieved by a two-person indie developer on a first game. Unworthy Life was developed in 3D in 4K within Unity. The game consists entirely of bespoke assets and features an in-depth levelling and upgrade system alongside realistic physics. Elements of the games design are informed by the computer coding, physics modelling and mathematics skills the brothers both picked up from their extensive backgrounds in Aerospace Engineering.
“When we set out to do this in 2014 we were learning from scratch,” said the brothers working under the moniker Mechanical Centurion. “There were areas that were entirely new to us and areas that are more similar than you would think. We were able to find answers to problems and ways to supplement our respective skillsets with what we know about mathematics and coding. We designed a software to manipulate existing plants and animals to supplement our drawings and artwork for the Flora and the Fauna. Whilst an understanding of physics, trajectories and simulations helped us in the design of the gameplay and hacking mini-games. Furthermore, we have also been able to use executables, procedural generation and mathematic processes to ensure that gameplay is lightweight and efficient enough for older systems.”
Unworthy Life is a story driven 3D RPG/ 3 rd Person shooter with 15 – 20 hours of gameplay. The game is 80% complete and is in the process of being beautified, receiving a custom soundtrack and recording voice acting. The game will be coming to PC soon. Other platforms will depend on the success of crowdfunding and the games PC launch.
“We will be launching an early bird campaign on Indiegogo this August which will be your first opportunity to secure a copy of the game, followed by a Kickstarter late in September. The game will receive a full release in 12 – 18 months depending on the success of our crowdfunding efforts.” Said Producer Callum Dougherty.
