Enter “Project InchanShard Warehouse”
Yes, many of you already have known about the shelving of Land of Skulls due to not reaching its goal on Kickstarter. You may also be aware of the new game announced on the main website as stated above. If you do not, well… you will now. The new game will be focused heavily on a causal competitive game you can play with the masses. This will not be an MMORPG, but more of a competitive MMOG (Massively Multiplayer Online Game) in a way where you compete for the high score in many different ways.
The game will feature puzzle solving strategies, problem solving, and quick response actions based on random events that take place. There are more details about this game to come, but this gives you a general idea without a clear image of the game as it is not yet but will be entering Alpha soon. At the moment I am currently adding the finishing touches on the Pre-Alpha version and it is entering it’s final testing phase.
So, you might be wondering well… what happens in the Alpha phase then? Well, I’ll explain to you just that… In Alpha I’ll begin adding extra features onto the base game that give it some extra bit of difficulty, counter difficulty, and added fun mechanics. These features were not meant to be part of the core mechanics of the game so this is why they will be entered into the Alpha phase. To let you know, the core mechanics are all implemented into the Pre-Alpha phase which means once it hits the Alpha phase… all of the base game functions are working 100% and there is now a game to play :D.
Not only will I be adding features to the base game made in the Pre-Alpha phase but I will also open the door for a donation to enter the Alpha phase for testing and help making the game even better before it goes to the masses. This will give you access to the game to play it for yourself throughout its development. The amount of donation will not be very high at all, so you will not have to worry there. The amount gained from the donations is to help me get the funding to finish development of the game as I do need to pay bills and such. Remember, this is a solo developed game which is why the amount for donation will not be huge, cause it isn’t necessary for that. I will be showing off footage of the game shortly after the Alpha phase and all the business side of things have taken place to give you an idea of the game and if you like it enough to support it through development.
Finally, there will be no Kickstarter! That’s right, I’ll not be going Kickstarter as the company itself is heavily focused on paying loads of money into self advertising, and I do not have the funds for that plus to demand so much from people just to pay those funds for advertising is a bit ridiculous, and this I found out after my first Kickstarter attempt and mostly why it failed as a lot of people did like it who knew about it. That is why Land of Skulls is “shelved” and not canceled, because i still feel that people will love it once I have the means to go back to work on it. This game is heavily focused on the story that Land of Skulls had so rest assured you will see assets from Land of Skulls in this new game as well as some back story of factions working into the story in this game.
