About the game
In the beginning of the game you play as 'Alexis' a mysterious young man, with no memory of his past.
As you travel you will unravel his history, discover his destiny and the ancient secrets of Terra!
You'll be able to travel the vast and rich world of Terra, recruit comrades to your battle party, search out ancient lore and be immersed in a deep story-line.

Make friends! ~ Recruit warriors form all over Terra ~ Create a battle team!
The game includes a large array of characters that the player can recruit to the battle team and party, both during the main story line and many can be found hidden away in villages, towns, dungeons and strange locations around Terra.

What is the battle system like?
The battle system appears fairly simple in its design, but with lots of cool pixel art-esque animations and tons of magic and battle abilities, items and in-battle interactions ensure it is a really addictive experience. The game does use a random encounter system, similar to early Final Fantasy games, pokemon etc But you will occasionally see monsters or the 'thing' on screen before the battle commences!

When will the game be released?
I am posting Terra on Steam Greenlight on the 3rd of December 2014
So it will be sometime in 2015
I'm pushing along with development, blitzing bugs on a daily basis and test running the game as much as I can. Pixel art and new environments are constantly being added and I will post updated screenshots, teaser videos.

Terra Incognita ~ Chapter One: The Descendant is available for a pre-order now
Join the Beta and you'll get the game at no extra charge on release. Also, you'll get a Steam key if/when we get greenlit!

Thanks for the support, all questions and comments are welcomed!
