Why Early Access?

““Return From Core” is the first game in our studio. We hope to fully understand the players' preferences and make this game better together with the opportunity of "Early Access"!”

“We plan to release early access version in the first half of 2023, and then continue to update the game. It is expected that the official version will be released in the second half of 2023.”

About This Game

Return from Core is a survival sandbox adventure game that throws you into the Inner Earth, a vast underground world within a world. You fled to the Core to survive the catastrophe that destroyed the surface and all civilization as you knew it – but that was only the beginning of your struggle. The Inner Earth is unforgiving, and surviving it will take all your wits, skills, and guts. You’ll need to explore these treacherous caves and tunnels – and make new paths wherever you can’t find one! Maybe one day you will be able to recover the knowledge and technology that was lost… and use it to return to the surface and start a new life.

Grab your trusty pickaxe and lantern and head to the darkness to dig for minerals and materials. Use them to craft new gear, items for your camp, weapons and much more. Be careful, though – the Inner Earth hides many nasty surprises…


Everybody needs a home to return to – especially explorers trying to survive in the Inner Earth! Build your own camp as a safe haven against the dangers of the Core, and decorate it with your very own hand-made furniture and items!


You are not the only creature alive down here.The Inner Earth is inhabited by all kinds of strange creatures that don’t take lightly any trespassing to their territories. Craft stronger pickaxes, bombs and traps to defeat them and claim rich rewards!


Hunger will be your constant enemy. Plant vegetables, hunt creatures and prepare recipes to fill your stomach. You will have to master your cooking skills, as no one left an underground recipe book for you


At first it will be just you and your pickaxe.As you re-discover lost technologies and get better materials, you’ll be able to build automated production lines. In turn, they will allow you to process more (and better) materials and craft more powerful items!


One of the most mysterious inhabitants of the Inner Earth are Monster Girls. They look similar to humans, but have special abilities and powers. Befriending them will greatly help, but it’s not easy, as they have different personalities and can be moody… pray you never make them angry!
