About

THE STORY

Wastes of Heathencall is based in the near future after humanity has begun it's expansion into the outer reaches of the galaxy. HRX-0909153, Heathencall, was suppose to be the answer to humanity's continuing problem of overpopulation on Earth. The first five years went smoothly enough, constant supply drops from automated supply ships and even the occasional communication with nearby exploration ships. Suddenly five years ago a distress call was sounded from Earth. All ships and military were recalled home and then all communications were cut.

Shortly after something happened. No one is quite sure what it was but, Heathencall, once lush, began growing hot and dry. Many animals and crops died, most water became poisonous, and the few animals that did survive began to act strangely. The once docile Xiraxus Falcons started to swarm and destroy everything in their path. The latest swarm spotted by the scouts is the largest ever encountered and is heading straight for your home village of Pril. To find a new home before they tear through your family and friends will require skill, planning, and luck. You are the most experienced of the explorers. Will you find a new home for your people, will you perish in the harsh wastes, or will you be eaten alive by the swarms? The outcome is up to you!

THE GAMEPLAY

The game is a side scrolling adventure game with hundreds* of events whose outcomes can alter the events to come. The player has control of the outcomes of every event through their actions. Every time the player goes through the game the player can expect to see anywhere between 75-90 depending on the event and the events will come in different order. This all together will allow for many many playthroughs that will change every time.

Why Kickstarter? 

The art that you have seen so far is all the work of a very dedicated person. Unfortunately this entire time he has been doing it pro-bono. To pay him for his such high quality work would take quite a bit longer than I want to wait to save the money up myself. That's why I'm coming to you here on Kickstarter. I want to get all of the artwork for the game paid for quickly and in full so that I can focus on programming.

Risks and challenges

As with any project time will be the greatest challenge. We plan on releasing before the end of the year and planning on a December release however we want to make sure that the game is completely polished and bug-free as we can before final launch.
