Prime Matter and Dark Crystal Will Put Game on PC Instead of Early Access

Encased, an isometric dystopian sci-fi RPG from publisher Prime Matter and developer Dark Crystal Games will leave Early Access on September 7, 2021, for PC. Two years ago, in September 2019, the game entered Early Access.
The following is the press release for the game:

Dark Crystal Games and Prime Matter are pleased to announce that Encased — the upcoming isometric sci-fi RPG — will launch on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, for PC. Seven new screenshots accompany today’s announcement. They depict areas in the game’s later stages.
In Encased, players explore a hostile area called The Dome, a sealed wasteland filled with amazing technology, but also deadly enemies.
Each player starts off in one of five disciplines — science, engineering, security, management, or convict — affecting their initial stats, specializations, and opening up (or blocking) unique dialogue options within the game.
You will explore the environment crafting supplies and weapons while trying to ensure each day is not your last as you journey across the environment.
As you level up, you’ll encounter six different factions that have sprung up in The Dome. Whether they become your friends or enemies is entirely up to you.
The game draws inspiration from classics like Roadside Picnic as well as several post-apocalyptic RPGs, creating a familiar but unique environment that will appeal to both RPG aficionados and newcomers.
