Description
"A Constitution of Government once changed 
from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, 
once lost, is lost forever." 
John Adams 



Martial law has been declared! 


How did this happen?

In secret meetings behind sealed doors decisions were made to monitor the people, stripping them of their privacy. 

Defying the tyranny, a group rose up and brought to light the government's plans to take away the rights and freedoms of the people. 

Through social media the members of the group swelled. They began protesting and chanting in the streets. The group had one face and one voice, they were organized and determined 

It seemed as though nothing would stop them, until slowly one by one they began to disappear 

Time passed and the rights of the people where slowly taken away. 

Again a voice arose from the people a single voice with the power of many and produced evidence, documents proving the government's intent. The people had lost their rights! The government was spying on its own people, at first they tried to deny this but the evidence was clear and they finally admitted it, justifying the act as a means of protecting the people. 

The economy crashed. 

The people could no longer worry about the secret meetings 
They were too busy trying to feed themselves and their families. 

The government offered a way out for the people faced with such hardships 

The people only had to look the other way while their leaders gave themselves 
the blank check They needed to follow through with the plan to completely reform the country. 

More time passed 

There were reports of Martial Law signs being shipped around the country. 

Governors of large cities spoke of declaring martial law to rid their city streets of crime 

The people heard the words Martial Law splattered across the news on a daily basis. They became comfortable with the term losing sight of what those words really meant until it was too late 

Whether it was declared due to civil unrest, or through threat of foreign invasion, or because of economic collapse, no longer matters. 

All that matters now is survival! 

You are ordered to stay in your home until the Collection Squads come to take you ? 
The people who resist are being shot in the streets. 
What do you do? 

Do you go willingly to the "safe camps", or do you rebel? 

You hear about other people escaping the city to the wilderness. 
Do you join them? Or do you hide out in the city scavenging for food? 
Do you end up starving in the "safe camps" with the other citizens, herded like cattle, or do you join the militias fighting the tyranny? 

Do you strike out on your own and use the elements to your advantage? 
Perhaps you even meet others and start your own societies. But Who can you trust? A person with an open hand often hides a dagger in the other, but it takes cooperation to survive in the wilderness. Are you strong enough to survive the ravages of nature? Can you avoid the death squads? 


What is Martial Law? 



Martial Law can be an open survival game based on the idea of a tyrannous government stripping the rights and freedoms away from the people and the struggle of the people to restore and rebuild there country, or Martial Law could be an open survival game based on the idea of a government faced with economic collapse and the threat of a foreign invasion forcing them to take drastic measures to protect the people ,but Martial Law can be much more as I am giving the power to players to decide what Martial Law is for them. With the level editor you can mold Martial Law to fit your style and be the game that you want it to be.

  • Level Editor

    The level editor is meant to be simple to use yet powerful enough to give players the ability to make Martial Law the game they want.

  • Building


    Building in Martial Law will be a simple process of collecting the items you need to craft the object you want to build or place the random pieces of debris you have collected from around the world to build your own survival shelter ,traps or works of art.

  • Crafting

    Crafting for right now is a basic recipe system. You can find recipes by exploring the different areas in the world ,meeting people that have already learned the skills that are willing to teach you or research the craft-able items that you find ,steal or trade for in the game.

    My goal is to add a physics system to the crafting that allows people to bend ,mold and shape objects to fit together allowing the player to use their own vision to create what they want.

  • Bartering

    Trading is important to secure your survival and so there will be a simple system giving players a secure place to trade ,buy or sell goods with other players. Their will be no "Store" to exploit a pay to win and all items will need to be found or created in game

  • Agriculture

    Just like in the real world an area can be over hunted very easily and so learning how to grow and raise your own food is important.

  • Exploration

    Some times it is nice to be able to give your legs a rest. Players will be able to travel by multiple means on land ,air and sea.

Will you be able to join the Military or the government in some way to enforce martial law? Why shouldn't cracking down on resistance also be an option as to what Martial Law can mean for a player? I would love to see that so you could be passive and follow instructions, join the government, strike out on your own or resist. Are you thinking of incorporating such a mechanic?
@Prophet I can understand that,thanks for answering.

sorry Colonel I did not get notice of this comment. It will be a mix on the focus for now it is more focused on the wilderness I guess. There is allot of work to do and making a detailed city takes allot of time... well to do it right it does.
Will it be more focused on the city or the wilderness? Most of the screenshots are in the wilderness.
