Published by Nether Productions LLC, Nether is set in an unforgiving, post-apocalyptic urban environment - based loosely on Chicago - with danger waiting around every corner. Players are forced to make quick, life-saving decisions, and use skill and craft to obtain resources to survive in the sprawling, desolate city. They must choose whether to team up with others or go solo against the powerful, teleporting demon-like creatures known as the Nethers, other players, and unpredictable, treacherous world objectives.
