Be one of the elite soldiers on Aries to help test and bring Aries into development. Aries needs your feedback and support. We need You
What is Aries?
Aries gives you all the fun addictive features that you would expect from a first person shooter, massive multi-player online, and role playing game – massive multiplayer battles, remote areas to explore, and enormous continents where intense ground and vehicle accessibility can be unfolded . We plan to use the Unreal technology one of the leading game engines in the industry that takes advantage of Direct X 11 advancement for more realistic and high quality graphics. We have spent years of research and continuous feedback to truly bring a competitive and visceral experience to a modern warfare FPS with a twist of science fiction, customization and strong design to provide a massive community experience.
Your time on Aries
During your adventure in Aries, thousands of players will form together in large squadron battles to win control over critical territories for key resources for their faction. With a large selection of weapon choices that can be increased in power by weapon experience and free choice class abilities based system, players will be able to dictate their own reputation based off their own skill of weapon choice, class abilities and profession as an elite soldier of Aries. Missions will be challenging, the environment and NPC’s will be interactive. Form a special elite squad with your friends and enlist more ambitious players to your unit to prove the strength and reputation of your faction.
Some battles can be long and some short. Victories will depend on how you and your team strategize to execute a mission successfully. Players will need to build alliances and discover specialized combat outfits to take on long-term strategic and tactical initiatives. With dangers from the air and ground, player’s awareness of their surroundings will be more alert and more intense than ever. Players will be introduced to dangerous native alien creatures and cultures that may be friend or foe.
Choose the side of Solace, Kyridian, and Ghost. These legendary leaders from the old world Earth have their own plans to help protect the survival of the human race.
Solace is a man of action. For him, power is directly correlated with brute strength and the iron fist. Solace forces tend to exhibit many of his traits. Combat forces can acquire heavier armor than their alter-faction counterparts, and all Solace's troops have access to weaponry that can pack a serious punch.
Doctor Kyridian’s forces make up a more gruesome side of war. He has embraced the art of biological and surgical enhancement to make his forces more powerful. Though the extremes of his experiments have led many to suspect that his mind has crossed into madness, no one can argue his results. Kyridian troops are bioengineered super soldiers, enhanced and modified to fill their roles perfectly. Doctor Kyridian uses an amazing array of implants, prosthetics, bio-engines and chemicals to increase performance
Ghost’s troops are true to their nature, they are ghosts. Lethal and deadly assassins preferring to strike from the shadows and disappear just as quickly. They use their stealth as a tactical advantage over bombarding their enemy in open combat. Ghost’s forces tend to use highly coordinated strikes to disable and dismember their enemies.Ghost forces tend to shy away from heavy or clumsy armor and focus on training and equipment that aids them in fighting with smart tactics versus pure brawn.
However, all three leaders have a common enemy to defend against to protect our survival. Be engulfed into an immersive adventure that takes you through mystery and adventure. Become a legend as a skilled soldier helping on the search for resources and protection, to get Earth’s former inhabits back on the expedition to the home they were on course to reach.
Aries' game world is one of mysterious alien ruins, monstrous creatures, and inhospitable jungles. The Unreal engine will make all of these landscapes, interiors, and creatures come to life before the player's eyes. First Eye Interactive is committed to creating a game that is both accessible and incredibly immersive. Aries will achieve cinematic quality in both visual interaction and sound design. Players will be amazed by a lifelike and realistic world they can interact with in ways that have not been explored in other contemporary MMOs. Collision detection, visual degradation and destruction of both environments and items is all possible with Unreal Technology.

Aries Platform Beginning
Aries will start on the mobile devices like Android, Windows and Apple (phones, tablets, etc. ) Our ultimate goal is to reach the PC market and cross platform the game between PC and mobile users together.
We have a short playable demo using the unreal engine. We currently have caught interest with Sony Electronics and Qualcomm and TC Digital. Qualcomm is our main target of interest specifically in the Android Snap Dragon space. We have been invited to E3 in 2011 and Qualcomm Uplink 2011 and as well as GDC in 2012.
We have a game design document, storyline, concept, mobile demo as well as a pc demo of Aries.
Team Build Up
Our initial team was made up of 7 core individuals spread out throughout the United States and one from Greece. Yes Greece! My stand in lead developer is Jay Barbeau former lead programmer/sound engineer/composer for the game EverQuest by SOE, Sony Online Entertainment.
We will begin our first round of funding to start our art development to expand on our current playable demo. We eventually want to reach $275,000 in Funding to pay for the building of the Aries developing team (Equipment, software, licensing, server space, art labor, programming, scripting, and testers period) for our first person shooter massive multiplayer fans. We also seek to use the start-up funding to gain a partner like Qualcomm/Zyga/Facebook to help us reach Aries into its finish form. Aries is where the future of first person shooter gaming is going and games like Planet Side 2, Huxley, Firefall are proving Aries to be promising.
