Hey! We are a new video game development studio founded by a team of 13 people who just got out of school and we are transforming our end-of-studies project into a real video game! To finish the game, we need your help (and your money)!
If you're tired of the long games of LoL and DotA, of managing minions, of buying your items, if you only want the fight between Heroes, if you want to choose your spells, and jump straight into battle, Halzae: Heroes of Divinity is made for you! All the players being with equality, only talent, training (and a bit of luck) will make the difference!
- Support a team of students who want to take it professional!
- Move with WASD (or ZQSD, we're open minded) and aim with the mouse!
- Choose four spells in the beginning of the game, and pick up Halzae's essence to use them!
- Break ultimate crystals and unleash (way too) overpowered spells on your enemies!
- 6 playable Heroes
- 4 unique Arenas
- 5 competitive game modes, and many more arcade modes
- Participate to tournaments and events
At the beginning of the game, you choose your Hero, who has a basic attack and a specific capacity, and four spells, among all the spells of the game. Choose them carefully, or you'll feed the fishes!
Each of the different arenas in Halzae: Heroes of Divinity is set in a unique environment, as the Egyptian desert or Greek ruins. Some arenas host a game mode specifically designed for them!
You will be able to fight your friends, and not your friends, in several game modes, in free-for-all or in team. Some modes will only be available in arcade mode, where the rules fade! Others will only be playable in specific arenas!
Each game has a fixed duration, no longer than 10 minutes, and that will be all the time you have to defeat your opponents! And if you reach the end of the timer without having decided who's the best, there will be extra time, and the gold objective! Huge pressure on your shoulders guaranteed!
Heroes are the main characters of Halzae: Heroes of Divinity, and here are some of them, and their stories!
Kara is a young woman full of energy, and rightly so: her body is able to store Thor's thunder, the God who chose her. Equipped with a bionic arm acting as both a prosthetic and as a catalyst, Kara unleashes her electric strength on her opponents. Perpetually looking for conflict, she fills her sister's absence by an ironclad will.
Fire a sphere of electric energy at your opponents, and use your dash to deal damages to everyone you hit and stun them against a wall or escape an enemy spell (if you're skilled enough)!
The robot Striker is a particular invention. He was originally designed to allow its creator, the big sister of Kara, to work without suffering from fatigue or disease. Its use was diverted for malicious purposes. Trapped inside the prototype, Striker's creator associates herself with the Roman God of Forge, Vulcan, with the goal of destroying all the copies.
Project his holographic blades on your enemies, and protect yourself with Striker's personal half-shield ©®™!
Maverick has infiltrated the arena on the service of the Goddess Nemesis. True bounty hunter able to take down his targets with a single shot of his guns, this raccoon uses his agility and his precision to get out of even the most difficult situation. Completely neutral during the Great War of Liberation, he applies the unforgiving punishment of his Goddess by frontally attacking the two sides.
Use his guns and blast everyone off your path!
Coming right out of the universe of Imaginary Rebirth, the cyborg Ciel allies with the great Quetzalcoatl to transform the arena into his new hunting ground. He's able to make the atoms explode with a single punch, and set himself apart by both his elegance and his savagery. Not really interested by the divine war, he still wishes to prove he is the dominant species in every world.
Break the very fabric of matter, and detonate an atomic explosion inside the bodies of your enemies!
The main way to deal damage and win games in Halzae: Heroes of Divinity, is to use the many spells there is in the game! Here are some of them:
The most basic spell there is! A fireball is launched, and crashes on your opponent, causing damages in an area at the impact! How many will you burn?
This spell has a huge reach, deals good damages, and will stun those taken in its area of effect! Take cover when you see your enemies launch this spell!
The light arrow goes through everything in its path, becoming stronger for each obstacle it pierces. Attempt long shots to deal immense damages on your opponents!
Launch this ice spike that deals damage at impact and spills ice, slowing down enemy Heroes! Take this opportunity to hit them even more!
This spell spreads poison on a large area and poison everyone which has the misfortune of being there. Use it at a good distance, and observe your enemies slowly dying (machiavelical laughing mandatory)!
In Halzae: Heroes of Divinity, you fight in several arenas, each being set up in a unique environment!
Ra's Temple is located in Egypt, just at the foot of a great pyramid. This small desert arena is suitable for quick and continuous fights till the last second! Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch are particularly adapted to this arena.
Helios' Square, built in honor of the God of Sun, is located in Greece, on Zeus' territory. The central zone of this arena is crucial for victory, so be ready to give your life to control it!
In the heart of Japan, Amaterasu, the Goddess of Sun, created, after long years of work, a magnificent garden. It was converted into an arena as soon as the Gods fell. On this grand arena, you must coordinate your attacks and your movements with your teammates, if you don't want to end up as losers!
Numerous game modes are available, in two categories. The game modes most adapted for competitive gameplay are grouped in quick play, while the arcade mode allows you to get rid of rules! Here are the main ones:
The simplest game mode there is, take down as many opponents as possible and cross the threshold before the end of the timer! If you don't, prepare for a short and intense extra time!
It's the same thing as before, except you fight with your team, so don't forget to cooperate!
This game mode can only be played on Helios' Square, the Greek arena. Here, two teams fight for the control of strategic areas. Those give points to the team of the players being inside them. "It's always better to die fighting, than to save yourself like a coward!"
Present exclusively in Amaterasu's Garden, the Japanese arena, this game mode sees the opposition between two teams, each having a flag in their bases. To win the game, you have to capture that flag and bring it back to your base! Be discreet, become a thief!

Imaginary Rebirth is a saga of science-fiction novels with a touch of fantasy. This work borrows its writing codes to the Shonen style, so it can assert itself as a hybrid novel approaching from the Light Novel. Hence, it perfectly adapts to the video game format, and proposes a great adventure across the mysterious world of Aether. Tobias is a trainee magician who, in a quest for truth regarding the death of his mentor, will have to travel far and wide across many times and parallel realities. He will meet Ciel, one of the playable Heroes in Halzae, who will be one of his antagonists.

All 13 of us (except one) just got of school and all 12 of us (except one) just got out of Créajeux (big up), a French school specialized in video game related jobs. And here are each and everyone of us, in a drawing, (almost) always fully representative of the person (there were long debates^^)!
Risks and challenges
As with all the video games, there are risks related to the production, such as delays provoked by bugs. As the production progresses, some changes to the game may occur, artistically, or gameplay-wise. Even if SaltClock Studio is a recently founded development studio, we are confident in our capacity to finish the game and distribute it on Steam.
Above all, we want to make a game that you enjoy spending time on. Making this game and participating in this adventure is a constant source of motivation for us, and we love to develop it, and play it!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
