Each beast has a matching set of abilties to choose from. You select 4 abilities you want your beast to use in battle. Create your own strategies and builds by finding out the ability combinations that fit your playstyle the best.

To strengthen and harden your beasts for the challenges which await them, you have to train them first. Go and explore the world, fight enemies, win battles and complete quests. Your beasts will gain experience by settling your fights. As they become stronger you will have to choose their destiny by selecting an evolution path for each of your beasts. 

Each beast has unique evolution paths. The chosen path influences the way the beast behaves and fights. You may specialize your beast to be super fast, or maybe you want your beast to have thick skin to endure longer during fights. It is your decision, choose wisely.

Your team consists of up to 5 beasts you can control during fights, out in the open world. During each round of a battle you have the option to switch between your active beasts. As all beasts have their strengths and weaknesses you have to setup your team correctly in order to meet the tough requirements in this new surrounding.

Two beasts of the same species can mate. Breeding gives you the opportunity to banish beasts which are especially good at certain combat aspects.

When you fight beasts out in the open world you have the option to banish them into a crystal. If you weaken them enough during the fight you can use an empty crystal and try to banish the beast. Depending on the species of the beast you have to use certain crystals to increase your chance of success.

Crystals can be found at certain locations, they can drop if you are lucky and they can be manufactured. There are various kinds of crystals, each one specified for a certain beast species. If you want to increase your chance to banish beasts successfully you have to use the appropiate crystals for the various beast species.

EVOKE features a simple, round-based combat system. The beast hunters will choose the abilities they want their beast to execute, simultaneously. The beasts will then attack, dependent of the attack speed. After both abilities have been executed, the next round will start. If the beast hunter wants to switch their beasts during combat, they are able to do that, at the cost of a chance to attack. If a beasts health points reaches zero it is too weak to be able to stay longer in our reality and it will be banished to its crystal.

The strength of an attack is influenced by various attributes. Each beast has a fixed base value for every attribute. These values can be increased by training the beast and specializing their evolution path.

There are currently three professions in EVOKE. Each profession gives you the ability to empower your beasts.

In EVOKE you can freely move around in an open world. There are dozens of quests that waits for you. Many people need your help and as you gain more knowledge of the mysterious beasts, you are even more valuable for mankind. While travelling through the world you will meet different species of beasts, each of them with its own peculiarities.

We are planning to support multiplayer for various aspects of the game in the future. If the funding is successfull, we will look into ways to make the various game systems support multiple players. There are possibilities to support duels and battles between players and there is also the potentiality of making the game fully multiplayer compatible, EVOKE as Online-RPG. Furthermore we want to look into ways that multiple players can work together to defeat world bosses, dungeons and much more. As the development is still in an early stage, we have to figure out various technical challenges of supporting multiplayer in EVOKE first. We will update you on our plans of EVOKE's multiplayer support.

We are a group of software developers, which have decided to use our skills to make something cool. Furthermore we are all gamers since we were young kids and we miss the old classic games. So we started working on a concept which combines classic gameplay elements with new interesting mechanics. To realize our plans and goals we need your help. There are dozens of projects that had great success and were started on kickstarter. We want to make this game together with you, the community. Because the community is the most important part behind every game. Kickstarter is the best place for funding because you, the passionate gamers are involved in the whole process. We appreciate your support.

Mainly we need the money to work fulltime on the project, pay licensing costs for software, legal stuff and of course the biggest part development of the game. We want to expand our team to deliver the best quality possible for this game. A big part of the game is already developed and we payed for it ourselves. We are now at a point where we need your help to carry on. We need to found a company and get it into the commercial register to release our game. Our developers have to be paid and we also want to improve the technology behind the game.

Our current plan for EVOKE after the campaign looks like this.

Closed Beta  

The first beta version of EVOKE will be playable by backers who obtained beta access. We continue the development of the game and use the community of beta players to test our systems, find and fix bugs, stabilize gameplay and incorporate community feedback.

Early Access  

The first public version of EVOKE will be playable by everyone who purchased the game. Early Access helps us to tweak and test our systems in a larger scale.

Release

EVOKE is stable and complete thanks to the support of our amazing community. We will continue to incorporate community feedback and we will start working on future updates.

The community is the most important part behind every game. Your opinion matters, please let us know about your ideas, because they can and probably will influence the game development. We will read every feedback carefully and we look forward to talking with you about our plans. Some of you will get the chance to play the game early during beta, we will give you access to private discussion forums.

 You can customize your rewards by adding extras to your pledge.

After you pledge add one (or more) of the following amounts to your pledge, by clicking the "Manage Pledge" button. Keep your selected reward tier. After Kickstarter we will contact you to specify what addon(s) you want to receive.

Risks and challenges

While a big part of the game is already done, there are still lots of things to do. As with any video game, there are a huge number of tasks and hurdles that need to be completed. However, we have a team of experienced developers that are focused to deliver the best quality possible. We understand the faith that backers have in this project and are very thankful for your support. We try to be very transparent with everything that goes on while developing the game. Lengthy research has led us to plan as much as we can before going to kickstarter. With that said, we may have to change above listed features while development, maybe because they’re not fun, influence gameplay in a bad way, or because they don’t work out technically. We will keep you updated!
