Imagine that you land in a world 20 years after chaotic and bloody events have swept across the entire continent in a wave of wars, crusades and unexplained murders. You are a pivot in the middle of the conflict between the descendants of the world's first makers.
You can take one of the sides, join a guild, family or order and in their name retake sacred grounds that other families are trying to claim. You can join with your friends and follow the trail of missing artifacts surrounded by legends. You can delve into the mysteries of unnerving events, learn the history and take possession of the wisdom and glory it holds.
Beware though, for your every step will be watched by enemies who will lie in wait for a your moment of weakness. When the time is right for them, they shall take away what is dearest to you.
Black Eye Games is an Indie studio that unites over 30 experienced developers.
Some of us were a part of the teams that brought you 'The Witcher' or 'Neverwinter Nights'.
Among us there are also team members who are working as Software Engineers in huge corporations.
Our team has been working together for over half of a year and the years-long experience we've gathered allows us to persistently move towards our goal, a completed Gloria Victis.
The main aspects of the game that should respond to specific targets are:
Yesterday, the very first Gloria Victis unofficial knight tournament was hosted, which is great taking into consideration that the event was driven by the community.
It was a one-on-one tournament where the particpants could play against literally anybody. Despite some inconvenience linked with the early pre-alpha version we are really happy with the tournament outcome.
Two hours of a great show - great thanks to all the participants. Next events should be hosted in the nearest future.
The winners have received pre-alpha keys, which they can share with their friends or their guild - and we have quite a few guilds already!
A few words from the tourney's organiser - Larsiam of the Happy Kangaroos guild:
"As the master of ceremony's of the Tournament I can say it went great. Everyone fought with such respect and dignity. It is a great thing to see a community come together in such early stages of this amazing game.
As a Tournament participant and the winner I can say the fights where intense. We ran into some minor problems and bugs. But they sorted themselves out and we continued to fight. As Gloria Victis continues to grow we as it's community will aswell. Thank You to all of you who support Gloria Victis and the Idea it stands for."
What is more, today IndieDB has launched the best Indie 2013 contest. Last year our game took 5th place, losing slightly too games such as Amnesia: A machine For Pigs, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, 0 A.D., and Path of Exile.
Will we be able to repeat at least our last year's success or reach even higher spot - it all depends on you and your votes! All you have to do is spare us few seconds by voting on Gloria Victis. Click the link below and press "Vote for this Game".
