I'm making this Kickstarter because I feel like it's the most suitable way for a solo developer like myself to make a project with the scope and scale I'm planning for Earth of Oryn.

It's also the best way for me to keep the game as indie as possible while being able to keep the same art and gameplay direction I feel is most suitable for the game.

This has been my life for the better part of two years now, and it truly is a dream come true for me. I want nothing more than to be able to make Earth of Oryn, and (assuming people are interested in it) support the game for years to come with both free updates and DLC drops.

Anything made above the Kickstarter's goal will allow me to spend more time improving the mechanics, the gameplay, and potentially even bringing on some people to help me here and there.

"Earth of Oryn is an indie city-builder/strategy game set in a medieval world filled with story and heart.

Build your kingdom however you see fit. Will you inspire and lead your people with kindness and generosity... or command them with an iron fist and crush dissents beneath your heel?

Starting from nothing, you must shape your kingdom perfectly to your vision while managing the needs and wants of your people."

Creative mode

While there will be a deep and rich story mode for those interested in playing through it, you can also dive into creative mode, where you'll be able to tweak the world settings to your liking and build to your heart's content.

The world


Weather and day cycle

The day/night cycle will influence gameplay, as some things can only happen after the sun sets.

Your people will need to rest at night, and those that are pushed to work late hours will work slower.

Weather will also play a huge role in your citizen's health, your buildings, and the biome at large.

Barne

  • A largely peaceful nation of farmers and merchants.
  • A land filled with rivers and hills with direct access to the sea.
  • The land is filled with powerful religious leaders.
  • A temperate climate year-round, with little difference between winter and summer.


Niluine

  • These lands are divided into two main regions: The highlands, filled with high fir forests and mountainous terrain, and the lowlands, filled with swamps and lakes.
  • These two regions have two separate groups of people living in them, the Linuites of Thârne, and the Lunuites of Luine, which have agreed to a tentative peace between their civilizations.
  • The weather here is consistently rainy, with a brief period of moderate temperatures in the summer, followed by long, brutal winters.


Hambkar

  • The canyon of Hambkar is a dry, dusty land filled with stone and large deposits of metal.
  • Rivers teeming with fish are the veins in which the Hambkil settle near, as there's little to no access to water anywhere else.
  • The people of Hambkar export most of Oryn's high-quality steel and metal goods.


Brandford

  • Four kings rule over the land of Brandford, allied to one another since the lands were first settled.
  • Brandfordians produce high-quality gems and stoneworks which they trade away for other goods. They farm hearty crops and raise goats which thrive in the mountainous terrain.
  • They're excellent architects and have used the fortify the mountains around their land to protect from outside threats, and harnessed their rivers to power their buildings.
  • The weather is generally cold and snowy during the winter, but more mild during the spring and summer months.


Earth of Oryn is a vast world with extraordinarily diverse biomes and civilizations. Adaptation to different environments is paramount to survival.

Earth of Oryn will release with four main civilizations, but this will be expanded over the game's life cycle depending on Kickstarter funding and sales.

The game takes place between 300 and 500 in the second age when most of the civilizations have established themselves.
