Two brothers, Kane Grant and Joseph Grant, born in the year of 1996 and
2006, respectively. The day his younger brother was born, Kane began to
feel jealousy and hatred towards him. The inequality within the Grant
household later led Kane to leave home, abandon his family, and even
change his name to Kane Reaver. His uncanny intellect brings in a hefty
fund in scholarships towards his dream of going to university to study
micro-mechanics and their use in psychology. He later attends and
graduates from university, and begins his research.
his unfair treatment as a child, Kane’s worldview was spanly affected,
causing him to believe that the world was a cruel and unfair place. In
2025, he developed an idea to spread balance and equality throughout the
world. He planned to develop micro-mechanisms that would attach
directly to the neural system of humans when taken in to the body. Once
attached, the mechanisms would begin to take over the infected person’s
mind by extracting and re-programming their DNA. The infected individual
would then be forced to follow the pre-programmed commands of the
micro-mechanisms, which were controlled by Reaver. The effects of these
micro-mechanisms were only effective on fully developed adults, making
men and women under the age of 18-21 immune, depending on the bodily
development speed of the affected individual.
Once his design and
theory for these machines was complete, Kane began his strategic
takeover of the United States of America. He developed one full batch of
100 of these micro-mechanisms, and with them, infected the food supply
of the White House, in Washington, D.C. With the President under his
control, he sends these mechanisms into mass production.
the next year, 80% of the residents of the U.S. have been infected. News
of the events in America spread throughout the world, sending other
countries into a state of panic. Surviving residents of the epidemic in
the U.S. tried to flee from the country, but Reaver cut off most of the
possible routes of escape, and all foreign countries closed their
borders in fear of infection. Mass amounts of refugees began to flee
south, into Texas and Mexico. All throughout the the U.S., Kane has
massive headquarters and military garrisons set up in each state.
the year of 2031, Kane Reaver sent brainwashed American forces to
Russia, carrying weapons loaded with bullets that contained
micro-mechanisms. To prevent nuclear fallout, Russia chooses to defend
itself rather than bomb Reaver. Europe and Asia are thrust into the
conflict as Reaver’s forces begin invading them as well, and they join
forces with Russia in a war to defeat Reaver. The war efforts became
futile for the armies sent against Reaver, as none of their soldiers
were actually killed in the fight, they were simply infected, and
unintentionally left to join the ranks of Kane’s army. Despite the
millions of soldiers sent against him, by the year 2033, he had the
Soviet Armed Forces under his command, and the government of the Russian
Federation dissolved. He then built his main base of operations in
Russia, a massive fortress hidden deep within the Ural Mountains.
in the year 2032, many headquarters in the southern United States were
infiltrated and taken over by a group of American rebels. The news of
their heroic actions spread across the globe, spurring on a massive
rebellion against Kane Reaver. This rebellion soon became known as
Today, I will be talking about our latest map in progress which is set in the Atacama Desert. Recently, we have talked to our Lead Concept Artist(Jeff Yu) about how we keep changing map ideas. We have started off with a map set in a swamp, moved from a swamp to a map set in Tokyo, and from Tokyo to a map set on a Harbor. Well now, with this map, we know we can do something much greater, and at a greater scale.
The Atacama Desert is a strip of land along the Pacific Coast, covering about 600 miles of land. It is known to be one of the hottest, and most driest deserts in the world. Rather than using all 600 miles, we thought we should scale the map down a bit, but incorporate a special "Enraged" touch to it by applying all 3 map ideas into one map. Liberico is set in the year 2040, and on our Earth, this Atacama Desert features a tiny island with a Harbor, that is right across from the Atacama Desert, which also has a Harbor built as well. The map will then incorporate a little city near the bay area, as well as a swamp in a small section of the map.
So you may be asking, with a map as large as this, don't you think the game-play will be very slow-paced and boring? Well, I'm sorry to put your question down, but that will not be the case. We plan to incorporate a game-mode that makes the map more linear, where the Liberico faction is invading (their base being the island), while the KRM faction is defending (their base being the Harbor right across from the island). So the main focus point of the map will start out at the section of the map shown in the picture below. We will explain later, in a future news post how the focus point can change. For now, take a look at a view of the island from the Harbor/Bay area.
For now, this map is still in the concept phase. We are currently creating concepts of each focus point on the map. After this, we will begin to create concepts of buildings, vegetation, etc. so we can begin the modeling phase, and finally move onto the level design phase. We will keep you guys updated with this map. I will say however, that we are working on the over-all terrain/shape of the map. We will release pictures soon of the terrain.
Well that is all for today's news report! As you can see, we're still working on a map,
and we will continue to try our best to accomplish our goals. I hope you
guys enjoyed our recent news report, please spread the word about
Liberico, and visit our facebook page for continuous uploads of progress

Which do you guys prefer? We might be using one of these emblems as a rank emblem for the KRM faction. T.co
