Revere is a 2D classical visual RPG which takes place in the mysterious world known as Akhir.

You play as Troy, a traitor to his empire and a man out for redemption. The day our protagonist learned of the empire's injustice, he immediately made his escape into the unknown. Fearing the worst, Troy realized that he was out of options. He had nowhere left to run, and all he could do was hope for the best.

Falling unconscious in the middle of nowhere, Troy found himself at death's door. Luckily, a local from the village nearby located his body and brought him to safety. Upon waking, he realized that this may be the opportunity he needed to make a difference.

Determined to set things right, Troy sets out to begin his long and arduous journey to change a world ravaged by the Lumerian Empire. With the help of some new friends, Troy presses forward, despite the odds being against him.

From this campaign we would have enough funding to fully develop the features we intend to have in-game.

Below are some of the essential features that we intend to further develop:

 Hybrid Battle System: You can transition between regular turn-based battle to real-time battle. This feature is not only part of the battle system-it is also a crucial part of the plot. You'll build up energy and crush your foes with your real time skills.

 

Story-Driven Quests: There are a myriad of quests in this game and most of them have individual stories of their own. You will find these quests on quest boards, which are located all around the game. Completing them will certainly be rewarding.

 

Adjusting Encounter Rates: Fighting enemies is entirely optional. Though it is not recommended that you skip all your battles - you will need EXP to get you through the game

 

Upgrading Weapons: We've decided to include this feature so you can spend time maximizing your characters’ potential and to make the game more enjoyable

 

Crafting System: You can do some wacky stuff with this one. You can make potions that buff all your stats with some easy materials. You can also modify already existing items. These items can range from weapons, to a random pebble you've found

Exploration: This game has over 300 levels you can explore. Be warned: one level may be longer than the other. Some levels have their own little secrets you can try and find.

 

 

This game does have typical JRPG elements you would normally see in other JRPGs. However, we have decided to take a more interactive approach to the game.

Aside from its novel-like aspects, we want to make sure that our battle system does have some form of interaction with the player. When taking turns during battle, the player can speed things up by attacking more than once per turn. This makes battling a whole lot quicker and strategic.

The game even allows players to transition from taking turns during battle to straight up real-time button mashing just to be rid of your enemies in an instant. The battle system is also made relevant to the plot, as the main character slowly finds out he is much more than the average human. 

Speaking of plot, the game in its final form will be 15 hours long. This means that the story content should be well around 15 hours of playtime.

 

These are the main characters within the game:

 Troy is the traitor and the man seeking redemption for the wrongs he has committed in his past. After witnessing his dear friend murdered he was left for dead in the winter snow only to find himself back on track and more than determined to bring the empire onto its knees.

Roland is a village boy and extremely skilled with the bow. He knows the forests and lands very well and seeks justice for the family he has lost. Although a callous and seemingly cold person, he cares deeply for his friends and would gladly help anyone in need.

Anthalia, or "Lia", is a Lumerian soldier that is in the same predicament as Troy. Seeing the horrors of her empire's doing she fled her homeland in attempt to find new meaning in her life. Realizing that she has the opportunity to make the world a better place, she doesn’t hesitate to do so even if it could cost her her life.

 Cecil was raised in the sandy deserts of Grun and realizes that the world is much more exciting than it seems. She explores the world seeking new thrills and discoveries. Although short tempered and easy to please she is eager to solve problems and would never back down from a fight.

These are some in-game shots taken to show you a glimpse of what the game will look like. This is just a depiction of what you will be seeing most of the time in-game. There is a lot more to show, however we cannot fit everything into one sitting.

When we were coming up with ideas for the soundtrack, we couldn't help but struggle to select between a retro or classical style.

We decided to have the best of both worlds in hopes that it'll make the game just a little more diverse. We've hired several composers, each with different and great talents while adhering strictly to a single thematic idea.

(Composer names will be revealed under the "People" section further below)

 

 

 

Platforms! Yay!
Platforms! Yay!

The supported platforms are an important part of both the campaign and game. Rest assured, the game will be playable on Windows and Macintosh via Steam and website downloads. We are also working on finding a good way to support Linux users as well, so keep an eye out in the future for potential Linux support.

 **BACKER GOALS

Since we've reached 100 backers:

- Every single one of you (the backers) gets to choose one Add-ons for free! (Add-ons will be introduced soon).

Sounds good? Well...

**200 BACKERS

If we hit 200 Backers.  Each person will get TWO of each reward of the tier they have pledged to!

That's right, TWO OF EACH REWARD OF THE TIER YOU PLEDGED TO!

Here is a breakdown of how we are going to allocate our funds raised from our wonderful backers.

50% of the funds will go to art. That's right. Art. You better believe it because art is not cheap. We believe making an immersive and interactive environment is one of the most crucial parts in this game.

15% of the funds goes to coding. Coding is a bit different. Since the software has already a ton of code done, 

10% of it will go into heavy modifications and alterations for the game.  

20% will go to music. While we already have a small collection of musical pieces, we feel like there's more room for improvement.  

5% will go to general expenses. While as crude as this may be, we do need to pay our bills for the next few months or so.  

5% will go to promotion. With so many new video games coming out, we have to stay ready and promote ourselves effectively and properly. The reality is, the indie game industry is flooded with competitors. Promoting yourself is not only necessary, but it is a vital part of a game’s lifespan.  

5% will go to taxes. But not just taxes, it also goes to obligatory expenses. This goes to the partners we might be working with, and general taxes from certain sites.

*In regards to the shipping costs, they normally would vary depending on where you live. But we will be making a fixed shipping cost for all instead.

*Why are there no stretch goals? Often times campaigns post their stretch goals only after reaching their initial goal. Let us assume that with this current goal the game will be completed and ready for the public to enjoy.

Why Kickstarter? Why 8,520 dollars? We’ve calculated that this is the amount we’ll need to ensure the game’s completion. While pretty and seemingly complete, this game does lack a LOT in terms of completeness. We are eager to make this product as entertaining and as memorable as we possibly can.  

We also believe in awareness. Kickstarter has always been one of the platforms that not only raises money but also awareness. It may not seem much, but backers are compassionate individuals that might spread word about a particular campaign they’ve backed.  

This campaign is basically killing two birds with one stone. It raises good capital for the game, ensuring its completion, as well as good awareness, which grants any game a good foothold later on.

Here is a long list of people that have worked sensationally hard for this project. For the sake of privacy, some have asked for their real names not to be revealed (as well their faces).  

**READ** (These are people that are either formerly a part of the team or currently still active as of today. Most of these people are freelancers. Their names are only shown to signify that they have—at some point—contributed to the development of this project over the past year or so.)

For journalists, if you ever feel the need to write about this game please do so! We'd love to have you express your thoughts and feelings. You can pick up the press kit here:

 

We thank you for taking the time to read through this page. With all things considered we hoped you had fun exploring this little project of ours. Though the indie video game scene is a big yet difficult industry, our hearts will remain strong with hope! T'was a pleasure getting to know you! Until we meet again, friend.

 

 

Risks and challenges

We expect that the hardest challenge will be adhering to our projected timeline and finishing things up promptly. We’ve tried to account for as many issues that might arise as possible, but we understand we can never remove all the potential problems. We will, however, promise to get things done ASAP and follow our planned timelines as closely as possible to get the game into your hands.

We hope that you will be patient with us as our team is fairly small, and we might have issues here and there. However your contribution as a backer means a lot to us, and we WILL make the most of it. We promise to make sure that our backers will be kept updated on the development and fulfillment process as it progresses via our social media accounts and website.

Thank you for considering us!

With sincere pleasure,
Darrel Wijaya
Producer of Story of the End - Revere
