Beyond Mankind is an Action RPG that follows a carefully crafted mature narrative pitching the player in front of existential dilemmas, the same ones actually faced by humanity itself.
It’s 2121 and the Earth is in the hands of a new, modified mankind. You, with your implanted memories of a dead world, are at the centre of a plot to regain Earth.

You create your character and embark on a mission to help human civilization, which is currently exiled off-world. You will be part of H.O.P.E., an elite military unit at the vanguard of war to recover Earth. You will start under the ruins of what once was the town of Avalon on the island of Santa Catalina. From there, you will embark on an epic journey that will test both your character and ability.

As you play, you will face unexpected challenges with surprising solutions. Social interaction within the game is deep, and you will develop personality-based kinship, loyalty, and even romance with other characters. All while you cover your basic needs in order to avoid hunger, thirst and cold, and you monitor your psychological state.  

About Brytenwalda

Brytenwalda Studios is a small, innovative company that started out as a group of enthusiasts who had made an eponymous total conversion of the popular game, Mount&Blade. Meeting with success, they were given an opportunity for a commercial venture, the successful Viking Conquest.

Brytenwalda is a distributed company; its partners work out of countries from the United States to Denmark. As most live in Spain, we are organized and headquartered in Santander.

We use the following ingredients to make our games:

  • A heavily narrative experience along a path of self-discovery
  • Non-trivial decisions; pros and cons over good and bad
  • Exploration of a world taken from history and/or the future that is now likely to be unfamiliar
  • High education value of entertainment (teachers have used our games)
  • Copious in-game documentary support, both visual and textual, to increase immersion and credibility
  • Quality backed by responsive support
