  • Basingstoke

Basingstoke is a tense roguelike that mixes stealth and arcade action. Explore the smouldering ruins of apocalyptic Basingstoke, UK, a world of extreme peril where reanimated undead and ferocious alien monsters roam!
 

Scavenge and Craft


Loot and craft as you explore. Lob a tasty sausage roll as a diversion, or poison a kebab for bait. Sneak up and knock a monster out with a whack from a cricket bat, or slice them up with a chainsaw. Tranquillize them with a dart fired from a homemade blowpipe, or set them alight with a DIY flamethrower. There's over a hundred useable items to loot or craft!

No Second Chances


Use stealth to sneak, weapons to attack, or if all else fails, run! But be very careful - one bite and you'll be ripped apart to become a tasty snack for monsters! Violence is your last resort. Sneaking, skullduggery, and ambush are your tactics.
 

What is Basingstoke?


Basingstoke is a town in England, renowned for its charming mix of hand crafted and procedurally generated features. Explore, above and below ground, and enjoy its many attractions. Rob a parking ticket machine, vandalise a keep left sign, go shopping at the OMNImart24/7... or if things get a bit much, hide in a wheelie bin.
 

Unlockable Characters


As you progress you'll unlock new characters. Start as a Tourist and capture those special moments with your selfie stick or splurge at the shops with your OmniBank GoldCard. Play as the Thief and use your Locksmith gadget to crack security panels and break safes. Each character has specialist equipment, unique crafting recipes... and hats!

Achievements and Trading Cards


The Royal Mint have issued a special commemorative set of Basingstoke themed coins to celebrate The Apocalypse. 1p, 2p, 10p, 20p and 50p coins can be yours, as well as an especially shiny pound coin. Collect them all, and a full range of achievements, trading cards, profile backgrounds and emoticons! Unfortunately we're not allowed to show you a picture in the store, you'll have to earn them by playing :)

Welcome to Basingstoke!

 


 

So it seems Basingstoke has still got the most innovative stealth mechanics around in an action game! A game where just acting sneaky has the desired effect. By way of an explanation, some people may not have realised how easy it is to be stealthy in Basingstoke and consequently not enjoyed themselves quite so much as they would have done if they'd known. So here's how it works: You don't need to ever use the Sneak key. You can run for a couple of seconds before you start to make any noise at al...

Basingstoke looks like an adorable game about a group of scientists in a southern English town—until a group of angry alien monsters starts ripping your lungs and stomach out (and yes, the physics engine models those organs individually when you burst into bits).  It's a roguelike, out this week, about escaping the smoking ruins of a town following an experiment gone wrong, and it wants you to use its collection of craftable weapons only as a "last resort", relying pri...

Speaking as someone who comes from a place that made someone literally grimace and turn away when I named it the other day, I’m in two minds about Basingstoke‘s running gag about running away from Basingstoke. One mind is firmly on the side of any besmirched Basestokians. The other mind reckons the freshly released stealth/action roguelike from Revenge Of The Titans devs Puppygames is only up to a bit of harmless joshing. Their version of Hampshire is one where Basingstoke has fallen...

"Basingstoke is a town in England, renowned for its charming mix of handcrafted and procedurally generated features," according to developer Puppygames. Now, I've been to the UK, and while Basingstoke is a real town located near London—a city whose twisting streets often feel procedurally generated—I'm not sure I believe the studio on this. That said, Basingstoke is also a top-down stealth roguelike set in an oddly adorable version of the town that happens to be...
