Hi there and thanks for checking out our Kickstarter for Life Forge, the Free 2D Online Role Playing Game! Before you read any further, let me encourage you to try the game out in it's current state at www.LifeForgeRPG.com before backing this project. If you like it, come on back and Back this Project! If not, well, we certainly tried! Note that the game is still in Alpha. You may encounter bugs that lessen the experience. If you do, please report them so we can fix them as soon as possible!

*The plan for any funds acquired are found just above the end of this wall of text and eye candy I'm about to throw at you.

**Please note that the install process for Open Alpha is a bit bumpy, and will be until we are able to get on Steam. If you have any questions as to how to get it running 100%, just message me here or on our site!

We're on Steam Greenlight! Be sure to upvote us!

To Steam Greenlight Page: GREENLIGHT

     Life forge is an ORPG (online role-playing game) designed to be what you make of it.

     The story is simple, you are found unconscious along a shore line by an elderly man who leads you to his home for shelter. There, the player soon realizes they have no memories, of course and the world in Life Forge is all new to them. From here, the players life is whatever they make it. A Life Forge, if you will.  

     In the world of Life Forge there is lots to do and be a part of. Players can become great and powerful heroes or, if they wish, villains. They can take part in quests, explore dungeons and have PvP battles in arenas or in certain areas of the world. If a player decides they don't want to run around and take part in adventurous deeds then they won't have to. In Life Forge crafting is available as well, so If a player wishes then they can harvest all sorts of goods to create a variety of items. All of which they can either use for themselves or sell to other players. Guild and Player housing are also planned features for the game, giving players another little slice of variety and choices which will make their game unique.​

Life Forge also boasts a wide arrange of fun and inviting features!

Mount System

Use mounts to travel faster! Different mounts will travel at different speeds and there are several to choose from.

Character Creation/Customization

Choose your characters gender and their hair style. We plan to add new races as well.

Death and Revival System

When your character dies, you will have 60 seconds to either wait and be revived by another player or respawn back at your last checkpoint.

*Note: You can press "V" to respawn anytime within that 60 seconds.

Custom Graphics

 You wont find any RPG Maker graphics here!

Stamina and Weight System

Items have weight and your character has stamina. The more weight you're carrying the less stamina you will have which will cause your character to move slower. Stamina can be raised through strength and endurance.

Boss Framework

Each boss is created to be unique for a more enjoyable boss battle. Custom programming for each boss is put into the game, so expect a challenge!

Threat System

 Your character will gain threat when in battle! Be prepared, enemies will attack the fighter with the most threat first. And, there are taunt skills to increase your threat even more, for those who feel bold at any rate.

Quests

Keep track of your quest progress and pin the ones most important! By clicking on the quest while in to quest log, the quest(s) will pinned to the game screen for easy tracking!

 Talent System

 There are three different skill trees to apply talent points too, giving players the chance to make their character a unique. Build the character that caters to the way you play!

And of course we have all the basic needs of an ORPG!

-Guilds , Dungeons, Projectile Weapons, Blinding Spells, Invisibility Spells, Spell Casting and Projectile Enemies, Paperdolled Items, Zelda-Like Puzzle Systems, and many other fun features!

The Plan of Funds (if acquired)

1. Steam Greenlight

2. Pay our toiling Artist for his lovingly made pixel art.

3. Continue to pay for Servers

4. Continue pushing out Quality Content!

All in all we hope to deliver an enjoyable experience for all who partake. Yours humbly,

~Life Forge Team

Risks and challenges

Projects Risks? There are very, very few. The game is already out and playable in an alpha state. It will only continue to grow when we move past the Steam Greenlight system.

If you want to play this game, it's free, and Alpha is out now! While we would appreciate you backing us, if all you want is a nice game to enjoy with others, Life Forge fits the bill!
