The world you left is gone.
Set in the far future of 4424, Age of Rust opens with the somewhat familiar sci-fi premise of a stasis gone wrong on a colony ship. You awaken in an unrecognizable universe where rogue machines have seized power and progress has ceased to be.
That's where the familiarity ends.
Blending a post-apocalyptic atmosphere with cyberpunk flair, Age of Rust creates a world and story all its own—a grim future where you must navigate your way through the creaking remnants of a civilization lost long ago.
Combat, stealth, and puzzle mechanics help shape an unforgiving environment in which your mind is your most powerful weapon.
A single-player, first-person adventure steeped in mystery with a heavy focus on mind-bending puzzles, Age of Rust doesn't just tell an engrossing story with beautiful graphics—it offers an entirely new gaming experience enhanced by cutting edge tech.
Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are utilized in exciting ways, from bestowing special abilities to unlocking secret areas.

Three types of puzzles will test your skills and intellect in the dystopian world of Age of Rust:
- Adventure progress: furthering the story (e.g., find a hidden lever to open a door)
- Crypto puzzles: require certain blockchain-based inventory and can issue crypto rewards. 4 BTC and 35,000+ ENJ / NFT bounties to be found
- Crypto treasure hunt: the grand goal hidden behind clues spread across the game, combining for the treasure trove of a 20 Bitcoin (BTC) reward
Age of Rust will launch with 3 seasons, offering a total of 100 hours of story-driven gameplay. The 20 BTC grand prize will be discovered in the 3rd season, with another 4 BTC and 35,000+ other bounties and NFT treasures to be found along the way.
Engaging puzzles with incredible rewards is just the icing on the sci-fi cake, though. Age of Rust offers an exciting gaming experience that easily stands on its own without the allure of rewards.
Combat and stealth mechanics paired with NPC interaction keep gameplay fresh as you unravel the threads of the story, while blockchain enriches the gameplay experience, with certain tokens unlocking further gameplay opportunities, such as higher tier puzzles.
Inspired by the likes of Alien Isolation, Myst, and Firewatch, Age of Rust drops players in a mysterious setting and leaves them to make sense of it all, leading to a thoughtful, cerebral, rewarding gameplay experience presented with visuals typically found only in AAA big-budget titles.
This is the Age of Rust.
