WorldAlpha is growing. Come and join us!
WorldAlpha Social Strategy MMO is now officially launched!
Description
Release date: July 26, 2013
WorldAlpha – Social Strategy MMO

Overview

WorldAlpha is a massively multiplayer online real-time strategy game or MMORTS. In this persistent world, players will be working together to decide what society they are going to form, as no one player will be able to do it all. Some will be businessmen, others military and political leaders. They will work together, and use social strategy to ultimately decide the fate of WorldAlpha. WorldAlpha is in the late stages of development, the first closed Beta scheduled for November this year.

The Story

Earth has failed, a smoking ruin. WorldAlpha, the only inhabitable planet within reach, is an experiment in survival. Humanity must outlive its own failure. The escape from the ruin of Home was merely another breath, a choking gasp. In order to breathe freely once more, Home must be reformed, restructured, reinvented.

WorldAlpha has great potential, but its treasures must be mined. Every Citizen can shape it. Politically. Economically. Militarily. Rich in iron, silica, cotton, & clay, the elements of humanity’s new Home can be harvested to create anything from bricks to bombs, computers to cars, tanks to towers.

Where WorldAlpha takes itself is impossible to determine. Its Citizens, its thousands, will decide. They must learn to reap the harvests of cooperation, or pay the consequences of war. As a politician, entrepreneur, or soldier – or a combination thereof – each Citizen contributes to the future of WorldAlpha, its growth or its demise. Every moment is real. Time does not stop. No one lives unto themselves. And Choice reigns supreme….

Seven thousand WorldAlpha Citizens have already joined the Beta. Society seeks stability in the shadow of war. Humanity stretches to survive….

Free-to-Play

WorldAlpha is a free-to-play game, which will always be open to anyone to try and continue to play. All players will be able to progress and will not be limited. There will be virtual currency, in the game called EarthBucks, that can be earned, won, or purchased with affordable packages as low as $10 USD. Citizens will be able to purchase items to help themselves, their companies, their neighborhoods, cities, and countries.

Realistic Player-Driven Economy

In the economy players will have to gather 9 different resources such as clay, cotton, iron ore and oil, and use them to produce industrial materials like bricks, plastic and steel. These will then be used to create othe industrial materials like electronic components and tires. Finally all of these industrial materials will then be used to create buildings, cars, tanks, weapons, and other end-user products.

Players will be given the chance to form companies, purchase real estate, build factories, and then work in those factories, as well as hire other players to create products in them. Once they have these products they can sell them on the marketplace, and use that revenue to further their business needs or pay themselves a handsome salary.

Strategic Warfare

Countries, as well as cities, will have the opportunity to form armies to protect their lands. Soldiers will need to be housed in barracks, and be supplied with food and weaponry. Crews will be formed to command tanks and artillery. These crews and infantry will be formed into military units. This map based system will have battles that could rage on for hours. Each battle round will give the soldier an opportunity to fight in a minigame in their tank or artillery or as a sniper. Officers, crew commanders and High Command will have the chance to direct those soldiers underneath them. Strategy will be needed to make sure that you stay ahead of your opponents, and ultimately win the war on WorldAlpha.

Engaging Politics

Cities will be divided into neighborhoods, which will have elected city councilors, who along with the elected mayor will make tough decisions on how to run their city. Taxes will be levied, and collected, and with that money, the leadership will have to protect their city, and provide their citizens with academies, hospitals, city walls and more. Cities will also have to decide how they are going to divide the real estate between residential, commercial and government properties.

Nations will be a collection of like-minded cities. These countries will also hold elections to select a Head of Government, as well as officials from each city, to run the nation. A constitution will be written and voted upon. What type of government will it be? Will it be Democratic, Autocratic, or Plutocratic? Who will hold leadership, and for how long? When will the elections be? These are some of the tough decisions that national governments and their citizens will deal with throughout the game.
