Many people have trouble understanding what this game really is. So we made a product video to help explain that. Watch the video on vimeo: Vimeo.com. Please note that the footage at the beginning is from WoW, not ours. We've used it in an attempt to explain where we come from and our motivation to create Encounter - The Game.
The main concept is an 'encounter'. It's kind of like a boss fight you'd do at the end of a level. You first have to figure out how he works, what your and his abilities are and then try to defeat him. Encounters are short, not more than 10 minutes. You can quickly play one, without the need to go through a 30 minute prelude. Once you win the fight, you receive some achievements and can go play the next one.
But wait. There is a second part: You can design these encounters yourself. We have an online editor which you can use to script every aspect of the encounter: spells, auras, the behaviour of enemies, create your own map etc. This part is not finished yet.
