The Vision of "Skyfear", Biological Impact

The cold air howls. The clouds are black, smoke rises from a burning pine forest below. There's a bending in the air, something that turns the wind over in a swift motion, and a figure appears - you, the king of the sky. 


We imagine the world before man, who hunted the beasts for sport - the world where reptiles ruled the air and ground. We want the creatures to truly exist in the prehistoric era; we want the players to experience being the creature. Secondly is the portrayal of the unpredictability and contrast of beauty and violence that comes from real life in the wild. Every element to this game is reverted from a “video game” definition to something organic and meaningful to the game world, and it’s all based on biology and nature.

The Lair

Your reign begins here. The lair is your personal hub, a place to seek solitude for various things such as customizing your genetics (appearance) and to set up or find battles.

Gameplay

Traverse between land and air with your wyvern. Use teeth, claws, tails and thauma (magic) to shred and slay your foes. Choose from a variety of perks and abilities to play the game with your own style.

Completing matches against opponents will reward you with Ore, an in-game currency used to buy customizations and such. Customize various parts of your wyvern's body, skin pigment, and thauma type (fire, frost, electromagna, or acid/poison).

Game modes include classic deathmatch/objectives, but also a number of original designs. Some modes may include both players and artificial intelligence for extra variation and carnage.

Skyfear features a variety of environments. Roam through sand, dirt, rock, heavy vegetation, water, ice, fire, and of course, the sky.

Release

Skyfear is being developed currently for PC/Mac, headed towards Steam, with full gamepad support. If we exceed our goal, we are [extremely] interested in releasing on a console platform like Xbox One, Playstation 4, and the Nintendo Switch (most likely only one of the three, depends on the funding). At the time of launching this Kickstarter, a release date is not yet decided. This will be announced when the game is much further in development, with your help!

Rewards

Rewards include digital content like images, music, the game itself, and more. Physical rewards include posters and even a sample of wyvern blood (we must disclaim that this will be a replica, as the real thing is extremely rare and expensive). As development continues, we may offer more things to fans who have already backed us. For example, DLC is being considered.

Risks and challenges

As of starting this campaign, the game is roughly at a point close to Alpha (most of the gameplay is set up, finishing animation work and fully fleshing out environments). Near-future challenges include further networking design, many rounds of testing, and a need for more detail and artwork. Please note that what you see in the video does not represent final gameplay, donating to us can help that look better!

Primarily the biggest focus is the gameplay, but we're in need of a strong marketing campaign and licenses/fees/ect. Understand that not only does the funding of this project help us develop Skyfear, but also helps us set up more professionally for future projects (and there are many of those on deck).
