EXODUS is a turn-based tactical survival game inspired by FTL and the 1994 X-COM.

The Coalition ship Rorkeís Drift was scouting an uncharted star system for signs of Syndicate forces, when it received a hail from the surface of one of the inner planets. After a flurry of unintelligible messages, the Rorkeís Drift was fired upon. Before the small ship was destroyed, the Captain ordered the crew to abandon ship. Your squad has crash landed on the hostile alien planet. The objective is to find a way to signal your fleet for rescue.Some of your men will die. You need to survive by any means necessary.
