Be warned, no matter how dead a planet looks on the surface, there is always something awful lurking underneath.
UMBRA is a science fiction map drawing game that tasks you with the unenviable task of starting a colony on a hostile alien planet. As the game progresses you will dig into the planet's core in search of an ancient weapon known as The Reaper's Gambit.
Inspired by Rimworld, Startopia, and various sci-fi horrors like Alien, The Thing, Predator, but don't worry, for all the horror on display UMBRA lets you take the lead on what your colony will look like and what your story will be.
