Our new project and the future of Zaharia

11 likes

Sadly we didn't manage to find any investor interested in developing Zaharia with no multiplayer or free-to play features and we didn't have enough funds to develop it on our own, so we decided to work on a lower budget project. Creating a second KS campaign would have been too risky, another failure would have meant the end for Inner Void Interactive and for Zaharia.

The new project, temporary called Project Frozen World, will be settled in a post-apocalyptic world where the remains of humanity are facing a new Ice Age. Project Frozen World will be a roleplaying experience in which the player will constantly struggle to survive, leading his/her party across a white wasteland.

We won't throw away all the work we did on Zaharia and working on Project Frozen World will allow us to develop various gameplay mechanics that we'll be able to use in future games, we will also be able to use some of our time to further improve the setting of Zaharia, in order to create a better game in the future. 

We still hope to develop Zaharia and maybe Project Frozen World will be profitable enough to let us start again working on Zaharia. If you want to know more details about the reasons behind the temporary suspension of Zaharia and the development of a new project, you can find a detailed article on our website at this link.  

More details about Project Frozen World will be revealed in the future, stay tuned!

      I hope you are eventually able to bring the Zaharia game to life. I thought the setting had great promise. But I also understand the business pressures and the need to start small.

      I'm looking forward to hearing more about Frozen World, too.

      Hope you manage to make Zaharia eventually. The demo had enormous premise, and kept me interested a lot more than a lot of finished games.
      Keep us updated on your next project - if it has similar customisation and characterisation as Zaharia, it'll probably be another one for me to back.

      Good luck :)

      Sad to hear about Zaharia, but happy to hear about your new project.

      Have you thought about starting a campaign on Indiegogo campaign with no fixed target amount? This watt you would get some funds in any case.

      Good luck with the new project, guys! It sounds like a neat idea, and I hope you'll let us know when any big news about Project Frozen World comes up. :)

      I do hope that Zaharia gets made someday but perhaps it was just too ambitious for your studio's first project. It sounds like Frozen World will have a lot of the same gameplay elements as Zaharia, so I'm definitely interested. If you guys decide to run a modest KS campaign to fund it, consider me a likely backer. Look forward to hearing more.

      Like many others I'm sure, I'm still quite interested in Zaharia but I understand it may not be feasible at this point in time. I will definitely look forward to your Project Frozen World though, and I will still be hoping for Zaharia in the future. Good luck and can't wait to support you!

      Best of luck with the new project!

      thanks for update...
      would LOVE to see Zaharia come to life!
      although a 'smaller' project, Frozen World sounds very cool!
      (no puns intended lol)

      Still very interested in the Zaharia setting, so hoping that it will succeed. But Project Frozen World sounds interesting too! :)

      Cool! Wasn't a fan of the original setting. A frozen post apocalyptic Wasteland however is exactly my taste! :)
