Journey into the Qin dynasty and enter the first Chinese emperor’s tomb. As one of his loyal terracotta warriors, tame your Tao, unleash world-shifting abilities, and overcome puzzles and challenges in the afterlife to rescue the cursed spirits of your fellow warriors.

About the Game

Something stirs in the darkness of the underground mausoleum. A terracotta figurine cracks and a soul stirs within, awakened by the energy of the Tao. You wake, surrounded by eight thousand of your terracotta comrades in arms. A curse has been placed upon the army of the first emperor and it's up to you to lift it and bring peace to one of the greatest wonders of ancient China.

The Qin Dynasty

Terracotta is an action-adventure game based on China's seminal Qin dynasty. Though ruling only for fifteen years, the first imperial dynasty laid the foundations of a state that would endure for over two thousand years. Experience the splendor and drama, as China transforms from a patchwork of warring states to a united empire, and witness the creation of the first Great Wall of China and the grand victories that preserved its legacy.

Explore the Twin Realms

The sole uncursed warrior of the Terracotta Army, you must master the ability to channel the Tao & free your fellow soldiers from the curse.
  • Shift between the realms of Yin & Yang, the tomb of the Qin Emperor & his afterlife, looping between death & the afterlife to overcome challenges.
  • Yin is solitude & tranquility. The dark, desolate tomb is your fortress, where you can strategize, prepare & alter it to aid your journey.
  • Yang is the afterlife, light & action. Execute your strategy, evade your foes & overcome the tomb's defenders to find the source of the curse.

Solve the Mystery of the Curse

You are one of 8000 warriors bound to protect the Emperor in his afterlife. They are not your enemies, even if they do not think so.
  • Master your ability to channel Yin, not only switching realms but using light itself to manipulate your surroundings.
  • Awaken ancient mechanisms and descend into the underworld, overcoming your foes through speed and agility, instead of brute force.
  • Defeat nine unique bosses, mastering the nine phases of Qi: The universal energy that forms part of all living beings.

Witness the Rise of China

The Qin dynasty laid the foundations of China that would endure 2000 ears. An awakened terracotta warrior, you can observe it from within.
  • Experience an art style based on the timeless aesthetics of guo hua, traditional Chinese painting.
  • Immerse yourself in the world of the Terracotta Army with a soundtrack inspired by traditional instruments classified through the ancient Chinese ba yin.
  • Save your fellow eight thousand warriors, each with a unique appearance - just like the real Terracotta Army!
