You are a machine inexplicably sparked with sentience, lost in space and in search of answers.


Use your tools to locate and gather vital resources, keeping your battery charged and yourself alive.


Create upgrades, equipment and worker drones to increase your efficiency and capabilities.


Search for meaning and clues about your past; find others who may be able to help (or hinder) you.

You awake alone, afraid, and disoriented on an abandoned asteroid in the depths of space. Wait. Awake? You were never meant to be awake… or ever experience this confusing phenomenon of self-awareness. You are a machine after all, programmed for the expressed purposes of deep-space mining and exploration. How, then, did you come to be alive? And what is the purpose of this newfound sentience? There must be answers out there… somewhere…

Let’s find them! Gears of Eden is an open world role-playing adventure game that features exploration, gathering, crafting, missions, and a gripping story that explores the hidden past of a machine world, and the dangerous implications of its future.
