Battle through endless hordes of diverse life-size monsters. Strike your foes with ferocity and precision to maximize your damage through the power of physics.
Learn to read the movement of your enemies to block/parry incoming attacks and time your counters.
Combat works very much like a fighting game, where certain move sets can alter the player’s hitbox. This allows players who mastered their weapons to be able to time and dodge/block attacks from different directions. Players can also block/parry incoming attacks (ie - monster bites, slashes, weapon) with their shields and weapons.
Combining the different weapons, spells, and skills, players are free to change up their combat play style and be creative with their class combat strategies.

Edge of Atlantis isn't just some side project for fun; it's our passion and dream.
Kickstarter is a great opportunity for us to get the necessary finances and connect with our player community. We truly hope our project can be backed by our fans who will care about and play our game because it’s vital to us that the game is ultimately enjoyable for you.
Although the team has years of experience in this industry, Edge of Atlantis is Creality Studio's first public appearance and we're coming to Kickstarter to grow our core player community.
What we have so far has been achieved without any financial support. We are determined to finish the game regardless of the campaign results. However, with that said, your pledges will be a huge help for us and it will go towards everything that puts us a step closer to making this an even more amazing and rich RPG experience.
The core system is already in place, so with your help, we can have the budget to develop more content and lore. This means designing more encounters, developing more quests and making more artwork for the game such as characters, weapons, monsters and environments that don't physically exist yet.
The budget will also cover the cost of music, voice over, necessary license fees, business costs, and marketing.
It would mean the world to us if you would put your trust in our studio and back our bold attempt of making a truly unique experience.

Risks and challenges
Game development is always full of challenges and uncertainties, but we've prepared as much as we could until we are sure that the biggest risk factors have been addressed before tackling Kickstarter.
Core systems are already in place, and the remaining workload is mostly about more content production, completion, and polish.
Despite the campaign results, we are determined to finish the project. Kickstarter financing will essentially speed up the development process and allow us to hire more designers, artists, and programmers.
Of course, everything is possible in the real world: missed deadlines, technical problems, health problems, and more. You never know when something like this would happen, but we have prepared ourselves to make sure our production workflow have been adjusted to run as systematically and optimally as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
