About

More details about the game

 Quick party-matchmaking, fast-paced battles, 5-10 minutes per round, 30 players, solo/duo/squad.

We set out to make a game that truly delivered on the raw components of the original Battle Royale:

  • Me (maybe with a team) vs many others
  • Real survival suspense
  • Pure skill-based victory
  • No pay-to-win

The limited-field-of-view in the game really creates an amazing tension, 

giving that true Battle Royale 'always looking over your shoulder' kind of experience. 

 We also wanted to make a game full of irreverent humour, so we loaded it with over the top deaths, and fun sound bytes.

We absolutely love playing this game, and we hope you do too. 

Help us cross the finish line

We want to use this Kickstarter funding to push us over the finish line and add the following elements to the game:

Squad glory

Lots more weapon choice

 Awesome smack talk opportunities

 Tagging

 Customization

Risks and challenges

These are some of the project risk/challenges and how we have mitigated them:

Scaling:
Outworld Battlegrounds is built on Amazon GameSparks and GameLift so we are fully confident that we can scale effectively across multiple regions.

Matchmaking:
It's critical that players get to match quickly and seamlessly with other players that best match their region and latency. This was one of the reasons we chose AWS GameLift - it performs these functions very effectively.

Enough players:
Any online only style game suffers from the drawback that a certain amount of players are needed to be able to enter a game.
In order to overcome that initial hurdle we have created bots that are enjoyable to battle. These will scale down as the player base increases.

Delivering on the game vision:
As a company we are really careful to ensure that we can deliver on everything we promise. To that end we made a decision to first have a playable demo for backers to test, so that we could avoid any 'overpromise'/'too big a vision' pitfalls.
