Game developer CM Games is proud to announce Into the Radius is now out from the Early Access after polishing it with feedback from the community.

This is CM Games’ post-apocalyptic hardcore survival game offering up hours and hours of replayable content, challenging players to master realistic weapon handling, survival-based gameplay, and exploration focused storytelling in a world that’s as unyielding as it is intriguing.

The game is inspired by the classic sci-fi novel Roadside Picnic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. It is now available on Steam, Valve Index, Windows Mixed Reality, Viveport Infinity, HTC Vive, HTC Vive Cosmos, the Oculus Store, Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest (with-link), and the Humble Store. Players can pick up this up with a 30 percent discount from July 20-26 to celebrate its release.
