 Welcome to the future.

             

The year is 2126. Many years have passed since alien aggressors attacked the Earth. People called them the "Acarids". The main resource which they need is water. They go from planet to planet and suck all its liquid using terrifying machines and leaving only deserts behind.

 

The first expansion of the Acarids has wiped out almost all field armies on Earth. The aliens’ tactic was to attack from beneath the land surface. The Acarids used machines to hide under the Earth surface and drill underground tunnels to their opponent's bases.

As a result a company named "Crypt" was formed with a purpose of studying alien technology and turning it against its owners. "Crypt" has assembled deadly machines with one objective - to exterminate the aliens. The machines were called Safeguards - modular military vehicles with anti-gravity engines. Safeguards became the perfect war machines: fast, maneuverable, powerful. Its modular customization system made it incredibly easy and quick to adapt the vehicle to any type of engagement which made Safeguards a truly versatile weapon.

 

The struggle between humans and aliens was long and furious. As the war continued, Safeguards proved to be the only truly effective weapon against the terrifying alien force. With the world facing a threat of extinction, governments could not sustain themselves and, eventually collapsed, shifting the powers towards large militarized corporations, who had enough funds to wage this war.

Soon it became clear that people were in need of a decisive victory to alter the tide of war. Due to the success of the Safeguards on the battlefield, the human side has chosen to attack the largest base of the aliens. Millions of vehicles were deployed on this suicide mission, ultimately winning it against all odds. Only a few have returned from the battle, but the tide was turned.

Without alien reinforcement humans finally managed to push the aggressors back, soon leaving only a few groups of aliens scattered on the surface of the Earth. But the world has changed throughout that vicious war. It has changed forever. Many seas and oceans dried up, causing climatic disasters on Earth. The atmosphere became poisonous and the survived mankind had to construct huge domes over their cities. In fact, each dome became a separate state. The governments remained only as symbols of the actual power.

Nevertheless, war never truly changes, it only tends to evolve in other forms. Corporations turned against one another in pursuit of the resources and Acarids’ technology, which would let them take over the planet. Meanwhile, aliens remain a hidden threat; hiding in the oceans, they gather and accumulate forces, waiting for a chance to attack.

Can humanity stop an internecine war and reunite against the common enemy? That is for you to decide!

Safeguards® is a team-based multiplayer online game in a futuristic reality. You are a pilot of a universal combat vehicle that is called 'Safeguard'. The goal of each match is to defeat the enemy team in collaboration with other players and to acquire alien artifacts.

The main feature of the game is the ability to customize your own vehicle by adding or removing modules, which drastically affect your gameplay style. Receive awards for victories and achievements and get access to new modules.

Customize Your Hover The Way You Want

 As a Player, your goal is to destroy enemy combat vehicles. Your 'Safeguard' can be equipped with various types of mass destruction weapons: rocket launchers, energy guns and many more. When using a special type of weapon (laser, plasma gun), the player receives a bonus damage, the ability to use "crowd control" effects and other abilities.

 The player has the opportunity to use special drones and additional bonuses to help themselves and/or the team. For example, a repair-drone is able to restore HP to an ally, and a scout-drone can detect hidden enemies. Different bonuses passively increase your characteristics. 

 

In Safeguards® the players can safely move within a city in hovering capsules

In addition to attacking capabilities, you can equip your vehicle with protective mechanisms: install a special titanium armour layer to minimize physical damage, or install a plasma shield, defending the player from plasma, but exposing them to conventional projectiles.

 Simply put, the Safeguards® gameplay is the ability to fully customize your combat vehicle to create your own game style and military strategy. You are waiting for dynamic and exciting battles that can draw in you from the first minutes of the gameplay.

 The artifacts are alien technologies that are scattered on the battlefields. They are used by people for developing new technologies, such as new weaponry. Artifacts are very important resource in this world and many corporations are eager to obtain them. Any risks related to obtaining a piece of precious alien technology are justified; war is not eternal after all. In the artifact detection area it is also possible to come across abnormal zones. The nature of these zones is not sufficiently studied and their effects can be both beneficial and harmful to combat units.

 

Are You Ready?

 Once we hit over £150,000 in fund raising, we will invest the money in promotion to increase publicity. We will make a CGI (Computer-Generated Imagery) trailer to be streamed in social media, particularly YouTube. Additionally, we will add the ability of gameplay for the "Acaridas". We will elaborate cities as well as more advanced hovers, so you immerse into extraterrestrial reality of the game Safeguards®.

 Thank you!
