Funding will continue on our website after Kickstarter, anything sent prior will be put to this towards goal. (Please include details for us to be able to return said funds in the off chance we do not reach the goal [Also include if you wish that, or would like the funds to be immideatly spent towards production] )

Please Join us on Twitter, Facebook , Forums , Steam

We're happy to see your feedback! For the $10 tier confusion, just want to clarify that $10 will entitle you to a digital download for ANY of the three platforms you want (PC, Mac and Linux). We will send you the download code when the game is released. Questions? Maybe you will find the answers Here

Please bear in mind, everything you see was made with minimal funds, I spent every dime I had towards this to even get it this far. Game Development is not cheap, I understand the $100k can be offsetting, but if you research into game development you'll see why that's asked for and is barely enough to cover the costs of this project/rewards.(That's with me just hiring free-lancers for stuff this needs) Still not convinced? Read on to see what Synaria can offer you!

Video was not made by me. Credits goes to 7Hours of the Youtube and ARK Community.

What is Synaria:The Awakening?

•Synaria:The Awakening will immerse you in the experience of living and survival in a future-fantasy world. 

•Action-packed MMORPG/FPS with Traditional Elements that blend with modern ideas.

•Made on the Unreal Engine 4.

•Will have Mod Support.

•Clean Blueprint Structures for best performance possible until converted to C++. It is a Sourcebuilt Project on the 4.13.1 version of UE4 that heavily relies on blueprints for the Prototype.(Like shown below, most will feature comments to help guide Modders[To be further commented as game nears completion])

When will Synaria:The Awakening be released?

•The release date is targeted for May 2018 . This will be a DRM-free release.

Who is Syn Industry and why support Synaria: The Awakening?

•Please understand I'm 1 person working on this now(Day and night since It began), as I get more of a budget I will increase the development. With your support and having a community testing, we can make this game into a new favorite. Kickstarter is the best chance of getting funded. A lot of development has been done so far, but I need your generous support to accelerate the process to deliver the best we can! 

•I've been pressured to give up, warned this could fail,the game itself has broke many times only to be swiftly fixed and even in the event it does fail I refuse to let this project die, too many want to see this to fruition. I'm hoping you do too =)

Always good to see no errors upon successful builds
Always good to see no errors upon successful builds

Risks and challenges

Risks and Challenges:

You may have noticed that Synaria:The Awakening draws from a wide variety of influences in its gameplay design. Balancing the different aspects of MMOFPS and MMORPG games will be critical to ensuring a smooth and enjoyable experience. Consolidating these styles is a challenge, but not one that will defeat us. I have already been hard at work balancing the interplay of these mechanics.

As with any video game venture, there are a number of challenges to be faced during the creation process. There is the risk that this project will be late, will run short on funds, or will lose staff to burnout or other factors.
While this is part of the business in general, every dollar you contribute will help us avoid and surmount these types of challenges.

The main challenge will be getting this Steam Greenlit, though if that is not a viable option, other routes will be pursued that will get the job done.

Being a small development studio, Syn Industry isn't backed by a corporate mass-marketing machine. Our game is supported by hard work and word-of-mouth. Tell your friends and spread the word!

Thank you!!! And HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
