Fixing A BUG
FAQ on our Website!
Release date: Spring 2015

A Top Down Action RPG with an open world storyline. Choose your class and over time specialize with dozens of skills and spells. You can't get them all, so choose wisely based on your playing style. Hundreds of enemy types, hordes to kill. Quests to complete, traps to avoid and puzzles to solve.

The game is designed for Gamepads, so you can easily move around, rotate the camera and do all your actions. However it also works with keyboard/mouse. Eventually the game will be released for mobile as well.

There's over 20 hours of gameplay, and it's highly replayable, allowing you to choose different characters, different skills & spells, and even completely different paths through the world. Will you maximize your character to inflict massive damage? Or will you solve the main quest as quickly as possible, cutting corners and ignoring less important quests?

There's a huge array of weapons and armor to equip, each potentially carrying powerful bonus modifications. You'll find them in chests throughout the game but also in the towns shops, where you can sell what you find and buy new stuff, if you have the gold.

"Your home has been destroyed by an unknown adversary. You've arrived in a strange land..."

We plan on releasing for Mac & PC (w/ Steam, hopefully!) in March or April 2015! The Game Is Ready!, all we need is your approval!

YES. Everythign is mostly set now. Waiting for the last music to be finished, from the company that's re-doing all the audio.

Once that happens, it should be good to go. But I will play through once more just to make sure the new audio didn't mess anything up.

The player character model is now updated, with both male and female characters and more skin tones. Better looking clothing/armor as well, even though most of the game you don't actually get too close to the characteer -- it still looks better!

I'm hoping to get this out ASAP, and although I wnat to work on my next big project (A 1st Person Party Based RPG similar in style to the Might and Magic 6-8 games), I'll continue to fix bugs and update enemies with newer, better models as I get them finished.

Yesss! Hope it goes well and to hear from you soon =)

The audio is being completely re-done by a team with Universal Music, and we're working on updating many of the character models, including (and most importantly) the main character.

I'll be releasing on steam as soon as those two things are finished. Both are getting close to being done.
