GEARSTORM is a detailed, militarized science fiction simulator set inside an open-world sandbox. In which players cooperate and compete to colonize and fortify their positions on a hostile alien planet. GearStorm takes place on a huge, open, procedural, and entirely destructible world. Here players can advance and customize their technology to improve their chances against each other and the Phage – a deadly nano-virus that is decimating human population.
"These days it's not enough to create an open world or sandbox game, perhaps it never was. That's why we've gone a different route with Gearstorm. It's a hardcore Sci-Fi military base-building battle experience and we've loaded it with rich combat simulation aspects.
As if that wasn't enough, players and admins will have unprecedented control over the procedurally generated world of Apollyon. Gearstorm puts the future of the planet in your hands with its completely destructible terrain, scriptable events, quest writing systems, and a living alien world full of dynamic factions for you to fight alongside or against.
GearStorm is a multiplayer FPS experience designed on top of the excellent Unreal Engine. GearStorm is designed to have rich Player vs. Player mechanics, as well as a challenging Player vs environment aspect along with role playing and base building aspects. Administrators can manage Dedicated, Steam and LAN servers with unprecedented levels of flexibility and configurability. All from built in game menus. Content creators can build maps, cities, and quests configure NPCs, weapons and technologies and do all this with tools inside the game. No external editors required. Once you’ve finished your masterpiece, share your creations on Steam.
So, whether you’re looking to design and play a team vs. team slug-fest, party up for a ready-made multiplayer RPG or just go it alone and explore a rich and challenging world. GearStorm is built for you.
GearStorm is about the Gear, Advanced configurable weapons, armor, vehicles, and accessories.
What good is gear without a world to use it in? GearStorm employs a procedural voxel terrain system. Don’t worry, this isn’t another Voxel Tech demo. It’s just part of the landscape of the game 😊
Build grand military bases, cities, or a small cottage on the beach. It’s up to you. Spawn AIs and NPCs to help you tend and defend your base.
As is expected of any Open World experience, GearStorm has hundreds of items to craft, harvest and loot.
Risks and challenges
A game like this takes many years to develop. We have been working on GearStorm since 2013 and are nearing the Alpha Release stage. We could’ve launched much earlier but felt that we needed to have a rich feature set and great game experience. We are reaching out to you to not only get support but honest feedback. We want your help to make GearStorm a game you and everyone will want to play and with your help we’ll succeed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
