    Mono Studio's Insomnia: The Ark is a story-driven RPG, set within a "colossal space metropolis" that's "brimming with the secrets of a long-gone civilization." As you may already know, it's been in development for several years—but now targets a 2018 launch, with the backing of publisher HeroCraft.

    Filled with both hostile and friendly factions, a wealth of character customisation options, a thriving world packed with sidequests, and, as you'll see below, an ensemble of terrifying Big Daddy-esque baddies, Insomnia: The Ark isn't lacking ambition.

    Hang on, is that dude's helmet made of human skulls? Yikes.

    Insomnia: The Ark is a 'dieselpunk' RPG that echoes BioShock and Fallout | PC Gamer

    The studio itself was formed back in 2011. So it makes 7 years now.

    Haha, well, the place this guy can be found in is called Crematorium which is used quite literally. He wears a military "tank armour", might be an old model that is not really used any more. And the upper part of it is apparently decorated with human skulls. How odd :D!

    So, are you a developer or involved with the game company some other way?

    I'm the guy who has been with the studio since 2015 running all Kickstarter updates, Facebook, Twitter, Steam etc. Been also testing the game quite heavily since mid January.

    Basically these days I'm looking for places where people discuss the game to give them a better idea of what it is etc.

    Cool. I bet more than a few of us check it out once it releases.

    If you're going to stick around, I could probably come up with a "Game Company" banner or something. "Game Rep"?

    We've gamified some of the forum with items...
