Battle

Fight waves of enemy hordes and progress throughout the world in order to unveil the mystery that threatens the destruction of the realm.

Unlock/Select skills

Progressing throughout the game will unlock new skills. Choose your own skill combinations and find the perfect one for the challenge ahead.

Skills

Double shot: instead of firing only one arrow the archer can now double the damage by firing two arrows at a time

Piercing shot: the arrow will pierce and damage every enemy in a lane providing they are of the same type. 

 Bomb shot: the arrow will hit one enemy target and do splash damage to enemies in local area, including adjacent lanes.

Stomp shot: the arrow will hit the first target in the lane and do blowback damage, pushing back the whole lane of enemies.

Ice shot: the arrow will freeze a target upon impact. The target will remain frozen for an amount of time, or can be shattered with another arrow, of different type, destroying the enemy caught inside.

Fire shot: the fire arrow will create a fire wall for an amount of time, upon target impact. The firewall can be passed, but will damage enemies as they do.

Skill combo usage

During battle you need to constantly think about your skill combinations and try to eliminate all your enemies. All this while keeping your eye on skill cooldown times.

The game takes place in a fantasy world, a mystical land cracked in two. Arco is a hunter, an archer living in the woods at the bottom of a huge chasm stretching hundreds of miles. One day a huge tremor shakes the entire world. Everything is shaking apart and even the earth below opens up into what seems like bottomless cracks, swallowing entire species into the dark abyss beneath. This is when Arco's journey begins

 Arco the hunter

The protagonist of the story, a young elf hunter living in the woodlands inside the chasm.

Drys the forest guardian

The forest guardian can seem older than time itself with his slow speech and uncertain movement, but even though no one really knows how old he is, he does speak of his childhood as if it was only yesterday he was a small and adventurous acorn.

Harlow the traveling merchant 

A mysterious pig-like creature, who follows Arco in his travels exploiting his need for arrows.

Kokin the fungus creature 

A small inhabitant of the fungus forest. He annoyingly invites himself onto  Arco´s journey.

 The Trolls

The trolls are not very bright creatures, they start appearing at the forest after a big earthquake, for some reason they try to stop the archer in reaching the village. 

The Fungus

Strange lifeless fungi creatures will sometimes spread spores upon dying, if another creature passes through those, it will go on a frenzy and run to the bottom at double speed.   

The Slimes

Mud creatures living in the swamp, can surprise you emerging from the ground at any point of the lane. 

And many more...  

 The Woodlands

Once lush and idyllic forests are now overrun by quirky creatures in need of way too much attention.

The fungus forest

Strange, but beautiful lands overgrown by poisonous mushrooms far and wide. Don’t underestimate the inhabitants of this place, they are well adapted and have developed a dangerous collusion with the environment.

The Marshland

Be weary of the wet, muddy and misty swamp lands. You never know when a creature might suddenly appear from the squishy, greasy ground. Careful this world doesn’t swallow you whole. In grease no one can hear you scream!

Team Arco consist of three handsome fellas with a combined experience in game development of over a decade.

Dennis Risborg is working as a designer and producer on Arco. He’s previously worked as a games producer, running several teams on multiple games.

Jonas Christensen is the programmer and have worked on a couple of game titles before using his awesome skills on Arco.

Juan Garcia is responsible for all the beautiful artwork you see in our game he is also designer. He has years of experience and have worked on many titles before this.

 Arco will be available on PC and Mac. We will be distributing the game through Steam as well as DRM-free download. 

Potential Platforms

PlayStation 4 and Xbox are definitely stretch goals, but we would love to provide the game on as many platforms as possible. Wii U, handheld devices, and so on. At this point it’s all up to you, the backers. The more you guys can help us out, the more platforms we’ll try to get the game out on.

Do you even need to ask? Kickstarter gives us the possibility to reach the exact dreams we have for this game. To not have to limit ourselves and our vision. We feel that our vision for this game is exactly what many of you want and we don’t want to compromise this by going to a publisher.

Kickstarter is what we need to realize our dream and, we believe, the best way for us to create a game you want to play.

Risks and challenges

This is a team with years of experience however, like with all projects there are obstacles we need to overcome. Right now our biggest challenge can be solved by all you great backers out there. As we currently don’t have any money for development we have to do other jobs to earn money.
We would love to spend all our time and effort on Arco and bring you the best possible game, so help us get the funding we need and we’ll make sure to bring you a great piece of entertainment.
