About

 

 

 

Dreadful pirates landed on an unknown island of Southern America at the end of 1800, occupying it immorally and brutally.

These sea men are pitiless and killing them will be hard!  

A new dawn will rise for natives! Their life will change radically and they’ hide and find solution to survive. They will find new defending tools, new building techniques, weapons and tools useful to survive. New Dawn is a survival based sandbox, open-world, multiplayer game set on an island in the pirate age for PC Mac & Linux.

The player is a native who builds villages and uses natural resources to survive and learns how to defend himself from frequent attacks of pirates who landed on the island.

  

The native’s culture has been a source of inspiration for us. Tales of tribes that fight for their land inspired us to tell about their adventurous lifestyle. We have read up a ton about Indian natives and pirates. We became strongly mesmerized by their adventures, so we couldn’t wait longer and started to merge these two amazing worlds in our video game idea. We spent long hours on concepts and 3D models; concepts that became real, day after day. To incorporate adaptability into the game we brought about certain modifications in the weapons and structures of both the natives and pirates.

 

 

The biggest challenge has been to connect their two different cultures. Natives are religious and spiritual people, rich in culture. They live in harmony with nature and animals, respecting life in any form. Pirates, on the other hand, are ferocious, impolite, drunkards fighting all the time. Arrrgh!

 

The pirates are wild and ruthless. They steal and have no respect for anyone. Oh well, pirates will be pirates. We have referred  scientifically accurate articles and stories that helped us understand the native’s lifestyle better .Same thing for the pirates. This was relatively easy, thanks “Black Sails” and “Pirates of the Caribbean”. We also travelled to Italian islands like the Flegree Islands to understand the environment of the characters.

 

Our motto is not to create the usual FPS survival and massacre. New Dawn is based on survival: Surviving hunger, thirst, adverse climate and wildlife. The stakes are high. The waters are rough. But they will find ways to survive…..

The pirates are controlled by an advanced artificial intelligence. They go around attacking villagers with a motive of looting. The pirate is a non playable character. Learning from what sees in his lifetime creates a baggage of experience that will help him overcome the increasing difficulties (i.e. same kind of fight move will not work on him every time. He will defend better next time).

He is name is Edwin Drown: This pirate is sly as a sea serpent and twice as slippery!

He is name is Roger: This pirate is sharp of wit and even sharper with sword!

This feature is the result of an advanced Artificial Intelligence algorithm. The collection of resources will be needed to stay alive.  

Climbing a tree will be useful to spotting enemies from far away or to hide.  

Savey is a system to capture a pirate and make him your slave!. But you need to take care of his needs so that he obeys your command. A slave will require attention. It is necessary to equip him with weapons, ammunition, clothing and food.

There will be villages and camps of wealthy pirates full of recipes and weapons. Diplomacy between clans will help create alliances and barter items using the totem. The book building will help you build sophisticated structures necessary for survival. The game will be played in first-person and third-person. It will almost always move from one state to another, except when it is being used to select weapons where you will operate in first-person.

We decided to add woman characters and NPCs

Character woman:

Npc pirate woman:

We invested time in designing a realistic combat system. We added customization feature for the character’s facial expression, eye color, hairstyles, hair color and body muscles. This customization increases as the game advances. We have included women characters in the game as well.   

Size Map: 49km²

 Equipment: You can make clothes to protect yourself from adverse climatic conditions.

Sleeper system: A "sleeper" is a player that has left the server. Their body becomes a physical, defenseless entity which is not within the players control. A sleeper can very easily be killed by other players.

Tools
: You can make many tools to collect resources faster.

Workbench is necessary to create complex items and learn the recipes

Furnace: Open fire oven with high temperature heating to melt minerals.


Weapons
: Initially, in the game, you can make many primitive weapons. Further ahead, you will get instructions to obtain more and more advanced weapons such as Fintlocks, Muskets, Springfields, Molotovs, Bombs, Gunpowder and Bullets

 

 

 

Barter: You can barter with other tribes for resources.

Vehicles: Find remains of wagons left by the pirates. Look for parts and instructions to repair them.

Mount: Catch a wild horse to domesticate it

Buildings: Build a tepee that will protect you from cold and rain. You can put it in any place in your expedition. You can also build a Pit House, Hogan, Wattle House or a Village (The book building)

Totem: Claim the land and create your tribe! The person who builds the totem becomes the Tribe Leader. Inspecting a totem will reveal the tribe name, its leader, alliances, tribe members, player and non playable characters killed by the tribe. All members of the tribe will be able to trade with allied tribes using the totem.

Tribe chief: Recognized by his typical attire.  

Slavery system: You can catch pirates and make them your slaves! But you have to feed and to cure them or they will die of hunger or illness. An equipped slave will guard his base.

Mineral resources: You have mineral resources to create tools and weapons.

Nearby islands: You can swim to the nearby islands or build yourself a raft to carry back  

Herbalogy: You will find grass that can cure, poison or drug people and animals. Use it wisely.

PVP: You can make alliances among tribes. Will you share resources to build alliances?Plantation: Seeds can be sown to grow food.


Cattle paddocks: You can build paddocks for your domestic animals.

Hunting: The Island is infested with furious and agile animals. You will kill them only if it is an absolute necessity.

 

 

Fishing: You can fish using spear or traps.  

Traps: Use them to catch animals.

Wrecks: So many wrecks; So much loot.    

Alliances: Tribal chiefs have to meet and greet each other in order to create an alliance.  

NPC: Fighting the pirates will be a hard challenge! They will locate and attack. You need to ‘Kill or be killed’  

Tree Climb: Climb on trees to hide yourself and observe enemies.

Pirates’ villages: Take all their glorious booty.

Kickstarter turns simple yet brilliant ideas into concrete and revolutionary projects. We are enthusiastic and positive because we believe in the potential of New Dawn and the effort put by the entire team in offering a new paradigm of innovation and adventure. e-VisualSoft is an independent study which was supported only by the founders of the grant study. This allowed us to experiment and expand horizons in the sandbox survival game environment. The development team and e-Visualsoft do not seek funding from publishers or investors. New Dawn began as a joint project and we wish that the project is fully financed and developed by the backer community and not turned into a personal asset. The only one way to achieve great things is to work together. We need your support and confidence to bring a ‘New dawn’ in survival gaming. We are satisfied with the work and the results. The funding will allow us to hire more people and accelerate the development time, thereby ensuring stability and functionality of the features with utmost dedication and seriousness from our end. 

 

 

 

 

                                            
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We are an indie company and we want you - our community - to help us with ideas and development to follow your wishes and imagination about New Dawn. We already had some difficulties during development and there will be many more, we are aware of this. Any innovative project is an amalgamation of ideas and efforts. A champion product does not emerge without a challenge. Despite all the hassles we are determined to give the best of our abilities to this project. And we are sure we can reach big things, together with you, with your help and support you are giving us.

There will be maximum transparency and willingness on the part of the team under development.
Funding will be completely used for development.
The founders of e-Visualsoft do not receive the money paid.
We want to give our best, offering quality and fun.

New Dawn will come into Early Access only when people participating in Alpha Closed and Alpha Test will give us their consent.

Many thanks to everyone for the support and confidence.

Good spirits be with you.
