Do you remember the days when games were hard and made you think? Lore is our idea of bringing that back to the gaming community.
Story rewrite by the Lore community and supports there standing together to make a different'sLore is a game where you struggle against Gods and Demon's. The game takes place in many different locations across the globe. You will visit legendary places such as the Labyrinth of Minos where you must chase down Jason, his Argonauts, and Hercules! You will explore ancient worlds and civilizations. In Greece you must fight the Greek pantheon! In Rome you will fight alongside the 300 Spartans! In Hades you will explore tolerance itself (?)! In Egypt you will raid the tombs of the Pharaohs in search of their lost treasure! You travel to the country of Japan where you face Japanese legends such as Nobunaga Oda and other demons. You fight tragic battles in the realms of Raga, going up against all mighty Gods such as Thor, the God of Thunder. You come across battles with frost giants, Loki and other Gods from Viking history.

This project is not just about making the game its also about the process of making a game from start to finish. This is to give you an inside look of everything it takes to put a video game together. Also, to show the transformation of a concept into a fully functioning virtual world. My hope is that by the end of this project you will have new respect for developers and you will have a greater love for the world of Lore.
Reward tiers update : The last two tiers are for those who would like to get most out their rewards. They will receive everything we work on. If there are unused models or scenes that didn't make it into the game, the backers located in these tiers will receive them packaged on DVDs. The backers in these tiers will have ownership and are free to use them as they please. Every tier above 50 dollars comes with a copy of the game upon release.
Not : This is the first time in video gaming history a development team is going to let pubic see and be apart of a game from start to finish. Meaning you see the full progression of the game. I know this may be disheartening to some, games do not look good from the start it takes time. I chose to do this project this way because I would like to rise awareness of what developers go through and believe that an open source practice is the best way to get things accomplished.
Why support ?
I can't tell you to support or not! I'm not nor have ever been a, "do it by the numbers" person. I will not pretend, I know there have been other's who have taken from KickStarter. I will show everything, both the good and the bad. Making a video game is a process it's not eye popping graphics from the start. Just because my approach is different doesn't make it any less valid. I leave you with this, the first heart surgery done in 1895, one person took the risk now it is a common practice. Those who place limits on others limit possibilities.

Tier 1 : 150,000 to 300,000 this is PC only
Do you remember in the good old days when games were complicated and actually made you think? This game is Dark Souls, Diablo 2 And Minecraft all in one. This game will give you the depth of Dark Souls combat with more options to use your mind and skills to over come traps, monsters, puzzles and bosses. The Diablo 2 factor is when you die trying your best to make it back to your body because it holds all your items you had on you. Within the Minecraft factor there is a ledge you can reach with materials given such as a rope and a old hook in your item bag. Combing the two gives you a way up. I have designed certain obstacles to make gaming more exciting. Lets say your running and you trip a trap wire and a big boulder comes right for you . Thankfully you survived that but now your trapped on a dead end level with a big boulder in front of you blocking your way up. You check your tool bag and the easiest way out would be a rope, No fun right ? So instead of a rope you are equipped with a Pickaxe. Now this is no ordinary Pickaxe it has the strength of 30 super strong men in only 1 swing. Chip the bolder away with 3 good swings and now that boulder is your stairway out and up to the next level! Another way of getting out of dead end levels would be body steps. As your eliminating monsters one by one you can get your hands dirty by plying up the dead body to create your body steps and walk your way out of there! These are just a few things that will be put into this exciting game. Now a little about the technical side of things. I use autodesk Maya 2013 and with this I can make models and animate them as well. I also have Unity 3d the current version I will be upgrading to 4.0 when it comes out so we can get this game moving. I have done a lot of the programing on my own so far but I am recruiting a team of about 10 or more people to help get this project moving along. Now if you want a real hardcore game that rewards you for using your head, gives you a rush and actually give's you a challenge this is the game for you! No more predictable creatures,boards, or tools were making gaming original again!! Im a gamer first no PR bull and if you are true gamers like I am lets make this happen. No website yet but I have a big vision and drive to see it through. I'm open to any constructive criticism this is entertainment for us all and who better to make the greatest entertainment but us gamers??!! We are launching the game on PC

I understand these tiers will upset some people but please try to understand we are trying to make this a world wide release. It cost alot to make good localization for other county's
Risks and challenges
We are making an action RPG game name Lore. This is a game that consists of a few elements from other great games. Our first goal is to get a full team because it is only I and one other person at the moment and we lack numbers to give our project full life. I am currently finding other great artist so that I can complete my team. Our second goal is to start a website to give a visual and details about our creation. This website will also allow us to build a relationship with our supporters and help us start a community for Lore where they can gain full access to in game videos, game music, concept art, updates, game demos and much more. The next goal is to start working on the game itself the story line has already been worked out as well as the setting of the world.
This game is based on Lore from the Greek Gods, The Sphinx and Pharaoh, The Minotaur and the Labyrinth, and these are a few characters we want to bring to life in our video game. We are taking stories from the past and giving them life in a video game world. We are also focusing on fun and challenging combat such as being able to hit and strike matters for example to slow him down you would be able to focus on a monsters leg to decapitate it. You will also be able to strike his eyes to blind him so he can no longer see you this are just a few things we will be putting into Lore.
The greatest risk this project faces is it never getting to see the light of day but I am driven to overcome that. When I am passionate about something I don’t let anything stop me from reaching my goals. I have gained a lot of friends and followers on social networking sites such as YouTube and Face Book, and some that I game with on The Dark Souls forms and Twisted Metal forms who are ready to support this project because they believe in me and what I am creating. I had one project rejected but that didn’t stop me because if I have to make twenty more I shall do so until Its funded because I have people who trust and believe in this project and I refuse to let them down. There will be things this project will face but we have a vision and we know what we have to do to overcome it and we will continue to be open to constructive criticism and looking to bring people together and invest in great material.
We understand this is something that has never been done but in 1492 Christopher Columbus went out into the sea and everybody told him he was going to fall off the end of the world but with his risk and passion we now know the earth is round and without his will and guts we would not be where we are today. The point i am trying to make nothing is risk free 16 years ago there was no internet but one man changed that. HEDY LAMARR was a actresses in the 1930's she came up with guided torpedoes for world war 2 she called and called the US army, government but no one listened because she was beauty and she was a actresses. My point is no one can understand vision if it was the 1930's are 1492 would kickstarter be a place to support like Hedy Lamarr and Christopher Columbus.
P.S We want to give a big thanks to the creative minds at Kickstarter for making visions like this possible and I wish you all much more success. I believe that every great idea starts with one person but it takes others to believe in it to make it come true. I hope you all can see and believe what we are trying to accomplish.
