About

Abatron is a real-time strategy, first person shooter, hybrid game that blends together elements from each genre into a simple to learn but difficult to master player experience. 

In a galaxy, far far away, war rages on for galactic dominance among many alien races. In an effort to avoid total cosmic obliteration, Abatron settles disputes in a controlled combat setting. Selecting their best warriors and technology, players battle it out gladiator style. Create large armies in RTS mode, then jump down into the battle as a hero to lead your troops to victory! 

You play as an Alien Overlord or Supreme Commander to defeat the enemy in Player vs Player, Ai vs Player, or Coop vs Ai modes. Collect resources, build defenses, and strategically create armies in Commander mode or take control of any unit on the battlefield to become a Legendary Hero. As a hero in FPS mode, deal death to massive amounts of enemies using special attacks that stack for even greater damage!

 With your Kickstarter pledge, we will be able to expand on the following awesome features!

FEATURES:

  • Switch between FPS and RTS at anytime - Play in TopDown view to control large battles and then with a click of a button jump down to the front lines and truly get into the battle first hand. Switch back and forth between different unit types in realtime.

     

                        

  • Hero mode abilities - Become a legend when you take over a unit to play as a Hero in first or third person mode. Heroes have specialized attacks that are different with each unit type. Find the unit that fits your play style and show off your skillz.

 

 

  • Map Based Strategies - The greatest War Minds learn to use their surroundings to gain advantage over their enemy. In Abatron, strategically lure local deadly alien critters to help fight your battles. Subdue the Critter Queen to gain control of her and use her awesome power against enemy fortifications.

 

  • GPU Heat and Exotic Landscapes - Abatron turns up the heat in your gpu with stunning environments and exotic landscapes. Explore the beautiful, hand crafted, worlds that span many different planets. Play on planets such as Nekros where Lava and Ash cover the surface and other planets that range from icy and barren to lush and exotic.
  • Cyborg Aliens - Experience a marriage between flesh and metal with the Haagenti race. These barbarian hordes have evolved their bodies by fusing limbs with technology to create the ultimate killing machines.                                                                                 
  • Research and Scavenge Technologies - Gain advantage by researching technologies or scavenge the world to find secrets left behind from long past battles. Explore the map for resources, power cores, and even battle buffs.                                                             

     

  • XP and Leveling - Level your Hero up to level 10 and become GODLIKE on the battlefield. By gaining experience through combat, each level increases players damage or attack speed. Buildings automatically gain experience with each unit created, so level 2 buildings produce level 2 units...etc.

  

  • Solo, Coop, and PvP - Play Solo, Coop, or PvP in any of our game modes. Be the last one to live in Free For All mode or grab some friends to take down the evil Haagenti together in Coop vs Ai mode.

               

               

      


The objective of the game is simple, defend your core and destroy your enemies. Construct walled defenses armed with different types of turrets. Scavenge for resources to build factories that create different types of units. While your army grows, jump into First Person mode to level up your hero and unlock awesome combat abilities. Once you have mastered your fighting skills, gather your forces and then lead them to battle.

 Who is W3 Studios?     

W3 studios is a small dedicated group of highly passionate game developers who want to bring gamers together. As a Son, Father, Grandfather team, W3 Studios was founded in early 2013. Games had always brought our family together. When I was a kid, our living room was not like others. Instead of a couch and tv, we had a Lan setup with several pcs ready to game at all times. Over the years, we enjoyed many different game genres such as StarCraft, Doom, Quake, and Empire Earth... but we wanted a game that everyone liked to play that wasn't genre specific. With Abatron, we have set that vision into motion, surrounded ourselves with highly talented team members, and are ready to unify the gamer world =) 

Our team members have worked on the following awesome games! We plan on leveraging all of the experience each brings to the table to make the game you always needed, but didn't know you wanted. Hold on tight and get ready to be blown away in the final version of Abatron!

 

 


 

 

Full Release  

Abatron full release will be available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The full release will be distributed on Steam.

Early Access  

EARLY ACCESS will be released on Steam only. Early Access will be available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Other Platforms 

We are interested in consoles, and will make decisions about those versions based upon campaign success, interest, and opportunity.

 

 

 

 

 

The above stretch goals will remain in place throughout the development process.  The support we receive will allow us to more quickly reach our development objectives by hiring additional artists, coders, and modelers.

We need your help to complete the full vision of Abatron. We've gained a lot of experience and have some great AAA talent working on the project but we're still too small of a team to finish this ambitious game with all of the great features we'd like to add in a reasonable amount of time. That's why we need an additional $125,000 to hire the extra animators, programmers, and artists to do it right. 

Join our community and spread the word to your friends. We want to build more than just a badass game, we want to bring gamers together with a strong vision and a shared passion for the love of rts and fps gaming. Support us now and help shape the evolution of Abatron!

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

With any ambitious project there are a lot of risks and challenges to consider, but with the right team and dedication any obstacle can be overcome.

We already have a really fun game at its base so the risk is already lower but the challenge is to scale up and add features within our budget and timeline.

We think some risks are worth the reward so we've already self funded this far and just need your help to accelerate us to the finish line!
