Join us on our journey through the war-torn land of Kotheros. Choose your faction of either Condors or Ocelots or the mysterious Goatverlords in the campaign and strengthen your armies for total domination of the continent. Online battles pit your best units against your friends and others from around the world and will be possible with all of your help.
Titanomachy Studios is currently working on the single player experience. Now we are going to make this is as amazing as possible, however we also know that in today's society as much as a single player experience is important, a multiplayer experience is just as important. If we meet our funding goals, we will be able to add multiplayer options so you and your friends can compete! Which army will come out on top? You will decide.
They've fought for generations. Settlements lie in ruins, refugees flee across ravaged landscapes, while bandits prey upon the weak. And still the Condors and Ocelots wage war. But now a new faction appears amid the chaos of this broken world, and everything changes in an instant. The Goatverlords promise to destroy anyone in their path. To seize the land for themselves. Can the Condors and Ocelots unite to fend them off? And how long can an alliance between ancient enemies last?
The basic game play is isometric turn-based Strategy Role Playing Game (SRPG) with consequences at its core. The player controls an army of purchased units that vary in strengths and weaknesses. These units also have abilities that are highly customizable with what we are calling ‘mutagens.’ These mutagens modify the abilities in which units use, changing the overall effect of said ability.
The consequences lie within your choices as a player, if a unit falls in combat you only have a limited amount of lives before that unit effectively dies. Therefore you have to recruit a new unit, or use in-game currency for revives etc. Also, units also gain experience from actually participating in kills, adding more choices. As you progress in the game, your units level up through maps. Those units will gain ability points, which you may allocate where you wish and use to change abilities. This customization allows you to play with the army you wish.
A plethora of levels takes your army across the continent to put an end to thousand year old feud and maybe meet a few new friends along the way. Our hope here is that having multiple campaigns will let those who enjoy a single player RPG experience get their fill without being forced into the multiplayer and then of course with the online battles we can fulfill that social need we all have to destroy our enemies! While there will be an element of Perma-death in the single player campaign for units, online units will be spared this and simply knocked out after each battle.
This month we actually just uploaded a new version of the demo with some bug fixes and a little additional new content and art! As we implement new features and art we plan to keep updating that demo and after kickstarter will find a new place to host that demo so that all of you can follow along with us on our journey of development!
Yikes, to be honest I was all shakes and grumbles. I was really nervous. We had a failed kickstarter a couple of years ago and that really gave me some shell shock about the whole experience. Granted I funneled that into a drive to do more research and go to more resources to make an awesome kickstarter project like we have now! It was exhilarating and terrifying, but after all of the hard work that my team and I put into our product and this kickstarter, it was easy for that stress to go away. My team is so amazing!
As our team grew we really tried to focus on keeping our scope obtainable and even now we have to cut things temporarily for the sake of time, budget and the scope. Once we reached what I like to call "Critical Mass" it was evident that it was time to go to kickstarter and beyond in order not only spread the word but also get some much needed resources to keep up that excellent dev pace.
So I don't know if any one type is the most helpful. I certainly want any and all constructive feedback. I am only one person and each other person has their own perspective so getting that feedback is invaluable to us. We might miss something or not think of something that could be amazing! That is why we have our demo on our front page here on Kickstarter. We WANT that feedback. If you have any additional, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
We received a lot of support and outcry from the community and our fans, friends and family. That alone was touching and bolstering to our morale, but I think more than anything it provided a lot of validation for the team. Each of our artists, engineers, and designers are exceptional and I believe that the boost in confidence received by everyone has really helped all of them reach to greater heights.
Right now our artists are working on different concepts for our in game dialogue art! We will post once we have a finalized look. We did just update our demos. Check them out below!
