Diorion has been home to the Animal Kingdom for as long as time has been recorded.The Ancient Bird Gods of the past created and once inhabited the lands many cycles ago. It is now home to the seven bird factions and their ground brethren.

The Bird Gods, before leaving Diorion , constructed Akatan. A pyramidal structure that was built on the Eastern Hemisphere of the planet, to house a Guardian Phoenix who would lay dormant keeping the planetary core burning and resisting the frozen forces from the West.

You are The Crow... a wanderer awakening from an omniscient galactic dream.
Soar to new heights in this unique, gesture-controlled, immersive game experience.

There is much to discover neophyte. Diorion is harnessing a state-of-the-art artificial intelligence engine that gives life to the planet’s inhabitants. Each Non-Player-Character has basic needs and must perform their purpose for the survival of their faction (food gathering, building supplies, population, faction standing, prisoners, etc. NPC’s are freely roaming within factions, interacting with the environment trying to survive just like you.

As the player, you have the ability to influence all aspects of this integrated game world. There is plenty to explore and many quests to be completed (hunting, gathering, building) and along the way you will encounter many friends and foes. Only you, as The Crow, can set your path and ultimately the fate and balance of Diorion.

There is plenty to explore, including mini-games, items to collect, levels to progress through, stats to increase, reputations to gain, friends and enemies to be made and many other events and quests to be completed. You will encounter many friends and foes, it will be your decisions that shall set your path during your journey.

(We will be launching a PC Mouse/Keyboard/Controller Demo, as well as many new updates! Thank you to everyone for your support so far.) We are always looking to reach out for porting to platforms and console! Please contact us at hello@ilcn.co

Full support for the Leap Motion Controller experience.

The Crow was an experimental prototype when we were playing with the Leap Motion controller and applied to enter the IndieCade 2014 Leap Motion 3D Jam.
http://itch.io/jam/leapmotion3djam

We decided to create a Greenlight page to see if there was interest in our game on the Steam platform. If there is enough interest we would love to have the opportunity to open "The Crow" up the Steam's Early Access Program.

The IndieCade + Leap Motion game jam ended on Dec 1st, we want set our sights on further developing this into something much more, that we can collectively imagine. Especially having the ability to interact with users like you who provide valuable feedback, can make the experience much more enjoyable for everyone.

Features Implemented:

Without spilling out too much jargon about how our engine is and this and that, we will opt for bullet points on what we have implemented:

  • Fully Explorable Open Environment
  • Autonomous Simulation
  • Survival Mechanics (Food, Resources, Hunter, Reputation)
  • Simulated Bird Flying Mechanics (Ground Effect, Grab, Pickup, Interact, Soar)
  • RAIN Ai for our NPC's. (Unique NPC behaviors that interact among each other and the Main Character)
  • Proprietary Event System (Drives the entire event system, story line, objectives, narration)
  • Multitude of land and sky animals populating the environment.
  • Faction Prison Systems (Faction Builds Prison to House Bird Prisoners of other Factions)
  • Population System (Birds Lay Eggs Depending on Resources)
  • Battle Mechanics (Bird dog fighting, dodging, racing, and avoiding [Videos to come soon])
  • Faction Reputation System
  • Achievements! (Adds bonus stats to your character for accomplishing)
  • Leveling System (Bonus rewards to character stats)
  • Saving and Loading System (Easily save your progress and start at your Home Tree next time you play)
  • Dynamic HUD / Similar to Scaleform's Product. (Player HUD, Health & Leveling System)
  • Navigation / Waypoint Mapping (Positional Data for Event and Item Locations)
  • DX11 and Physically Based Shading
  • ...And more...

Wish List:

If we are successful in our endeavors we would love to finalize these pending updates:

  • Rogue Cave System (Similar to Dungeons)
  • More Quest Objectives, Items, Story lines, Races, Battles
  • Multiple Open Worlds / Environments
  • Multiple Boss Encounters
  • Additional Animals for Ground and Sky
  • Additional Multiplayer Support Layers
  • Additional Language Support
  • ...And we are always open to suggestions to add to the list.

For now you can download the Windows Alpha demonstration of our progress over the last few weeks. You will need the Leap Motion [www.leapmotion.com] controller to play. Rest assure that we will be submitting a controller/keyboard/mouse alternative methods of play Jan 13.

We want to give the Leap Motion's[www.leapmotion.com] controller a chance to have exposure. If we achieve Greenlight we will have a fully functional game experience in time for Christmas on Early Access. If that goes well we plan on Launching a much more content rich experience in Q2 (Middle of May) only made possible by you!

[/i]Currently there is only the Windows version. We are aiming at launching the Mac and Linux following the finalization of the Windows Build.[/i]

I had an amazing experience with crows when I was little.

I was walking home and saw one struggling and stuck in some vines. I went to help it out and then set it on the ground. As I was walking home I noticed that my hands felt sticky. I looked down at them and they were covered in blood.
I ran home when I started noticing that a flock of crows were following me. They chased me all the way home and followed my every day I went outside for months.

I later learned that Crows are the smartest Birds and that they can solve difficult puzzles and remember people. They can even find change for vending machines.

OMG this looks insanely fun as just a relaxing casual game! The main reason it looks so fun is because it's so unique! Playing as a bird sounds unique and fun. I expect it to be very fun!

Thanks guys. Once we are on Early Access we can explore new characters. We don't see why there cannot be options for others birds to play at some point.

The graphics look pretty solid, but I have my doubts about the character.
