The game features 6 different classes with 5 protagonist races and 1 antagonist race. Gamer will have a choice between 5 races to play for, where each class has its own story behind, different motivations and various extraordinary skills as well as weapons. The range of choice out of that quantity of races gives a player competitive advantage in various aspects. While one race can apply heavy damage in combat but poor in defense, the other is more agile with solid protective skills, yet other races are better in crafting and magical skills.
The race of powerful and beast resembling creatures with mind and intelligence. Cold rocky wastelands on the North of the mainland are the homes of Harangs. Dense fur covers their bodies warming during cold climate. Strong bones allow them to carry heavy things in long trips. Sharp fangs and claws are essential weapon for Harangs to hunt. Thanks to their ancestry, they are the best in hunting and crafting on the entire mainland. Fearless Harangs are loyal to their ancient customs and traditions. Harangs distinct themselves as generous and gracious, however they are also very testy. Sometimes their temper can turn into ferocity.
The homeland of this race is caves and dungeons. There are long passages, corridors and mines under the ground. Gneisses are the inhabitants of them. Stone creatures, massive and heavyweight, they don’t need to eat. Big hands and very wide shoulders help gneisses to lift gigantic rocks. Gneisses are adjusted to darkness and don’t need air, therefore they sometimes live at the very deep bottom under the ground. Mighty strength captivated in their stone bodies can terrify anybody. However, profound wisdom is characteristic to this ancient race. Slow, but with crushing physical dominance over the other races, gneisses propagate justice and value relics of the terrestrial bowels. Minerals and stone that are delivered to the surface by gneisses allow them to develop craft arts and magic.
Trilins are creatures – true children of the forests. For ages, trilins live in sylvan territories on the mainland. Fast and agile they can hide reliably on branches of high trees deep inside the forest. Their body structure is similar to human’s system. However, they have a tree bark covered all over instead of skin. Trilins are lower than humans and have more flexible body. If humans have muscles, trilins have knotty weave of roots and branches. Therefore, this race is distinctive by its flexibility and smooth grace. They love and honor their native forest as well as protect its territories and borders. Wide settlements of trilins are famous for their elegance and beauty harmonizing with sylvan flora. Adventurous lifestyle of trilins in forest formed their cheerful, roguish and adventurist temperament. Closeness to nature rewarded them sensitivity, and their tendency to contemplation – delicacy of perception the phenomena of nature.
The race of intelligent creatures has been living on the island for centuries. Frequently, they had sand storms and wild hurricanes risen on the island and constantly forming its surface and the landscape. Flora and fauna have adapted to rough living conditions. Nature of the race has been changing with the nature of environment. These harsh conditions made those wise creatures hardened and acquire courage and patience. Their eyes were always looking forward over the horizon. The romance of adventures attracts curious and enduring nomads, gives new knowledge and experience to pass them to the future generations. The body structure is similar to humans’, however; nomads are taller, darker and rougher in skin due to their eternal journeys. Their faces gained unknown features and their legs, hardened with constant walking, became powerful and durable. Flexible slim bodies can last without water and food for much longer time than humans. Their arms and hands evolved, ossified and lost their symmetry. Tenacious and long fingers allow them to climb rocks and hold even during strong winds on plains. Loyal to each other, tight-knit and united in front of dangers and difficulties, nomads, however, remained mysterious and weird for the rest of the races.
Human race lives on the mainland. Their colony is very wide and diversified. Fertile valleys, spreading fields and rich lands belong to humans. There are many human cities and fortresses as well as small villages on the mainland. Tough, strong, noble and full of dignity, humans have been wisely reigning native territories generation after generation making their race prosperous. Noble king, brave warrior and hardworking peasant – each representative is famous for his loyalty to the folk and faithfulness in the nation. Wealthy story and deep traditions allowed humans to build kind and respectful relationships with other races and nature forces on the mainland. With their spirit force, true intentions and righteous lifestyle, human race created a civilization on the mainland letting them develop agriculture and other crafts. Such character integrity and moral stability reflected on their appearance, and every human become handsome in its own way. There is a harmony in their facial features and body structure. Honor and bravery gained the trust from the other races.
The hero is determined by your preferences. Your abilities and stats rise depending on the amount of enemies you kill or the number of quests you accomplish. Every decision is yours anyway.
Terrifying creatures born by Darkness gained rotten flesh and ugly shape. Every thought of the Lord of Darkness incarnated into a horde of dreadful demons. Each demon is destined to execute his disgusting and ruthless purpose. Furious and bloodthirsty, dressed in creepy armor demons have no mercy. They are driven by hate towards everything live and beautiful. They have only one passion. The passion for destruction!
Edge of Destruction is a huge universe combining multi-storied levels. The game reveals various remarkable places and locations as you progress through missions. Places, each harboring their own mysteries and danger. Behind each location, there is a great story of its origins and events to be revealed later in game progress.
The Great Forest
Gorgeous Forest is full of life and is a home for many creatures. It is a homeland of Trilins. On the way through the Forest, a hero can meet shelters of Trilins, Sylvan Fortress Gryndorion and more. Nooks of the Forest hide secrets and mysteries. Dense flora of the fertile Forest doesn’t leak sunlight which creates a puzzling atmosphere around.
Withered trunks of dead trees stretch their curved branches to empty and bleak sky. Huge pieces of barks exfoliate from trees and fall with dry leaves. This part of the Forest was poisoned and doomed to a slow death. Demonic spells revived the trunks of dead trees; wild snags wander around this place harassing and scaring travelers. Dried earth roughened and cracked, mysterious holes and passages have been revealed.
Dead and abandoned swamp side. Dense stinking goo by loamy coasts and dark waters. Toxic gas bubbles swell on the surface. Bluish smokes hover over the swamp. Forgotten passages and lost paths to the underground caves hide under the stones. Trees on the age of the swamp stretch their branches over the waters. Curved trunks are eaten by wild and malicious beasts. Dark shadows, mysterious spirits of rotten swamps rise from the fog and ambush strangers.
Arches of the Caves are burnt and covered in soot. Magma threads, once flowing in these places, are hardened in bizarre and grotesque forms. Rising from the floor, hanging from the ceiling and dripping from the walls, they emphasize the atmosphere of this space. Lava streams pour through the wall cracks. Occasionally, fire fountains and a sheaf of sparks may shoot in an unexpected way. There is a lava lake boiling on the bottom of fractures.
Lying in the foothills of the forest, the area is covered with furry snow, like a blanket. Wind blows from the cold Gray Mountains, snowstorm is spinning among trees covering deep snowdrifts where any stranger risks to fall down and freeze to death. Snowy paths lead to the lake with black waters imprisoned into ice.
Mysterious and tough country makes the stranger to be cautious.
You can hunt wild Dagarzes in the Great Forest and chase Rodonds in Gray Mountains. These furious beasts are difficult to be defeated, but their fur and claws are quite valuable. Small Yolkes, that typically gnaw tree trunks are easy to be caught. The Spirit of Withered Tree – Jizaraga can be a friend of yours. Therefore, you shouldn’t anger her as swamp zambles – ghosts of the Black Swamp bow her. Epic battle with Flaming Epidavr in the Burning Caves is expecting you as well as a clash with the ghost of Iron Warrior of the Ancient Ruins.
Since it’s an adventure game with a unique story, extra weapons, skills and other customizing stuff are upgradable for the main character. You will be able to choose specific clothing items, equipment and improve fighting and magical skills throughout the game progress.

We will also offer special and rare clothing items, which will make your character, stand out even further from the rest. Let's be honest, who doesn't want to beat the enemy in style?

We will compete in clan wars and post on the forums, just like everyone else. All in all we try to break the common separation of developers and players by becoming part of the community, interacting and engaging with one another and building a strong bond between us, the players and the game.

Risks and challenges
As The Edge of Destruction is our first major project, not surprisingly, we can come across some challenges in the developing process. Game development bears a certain degree of risk by all means. Obviously, there may be some delays in production because we are responsible for every detail to be perfect. We constantly make revisions, experiment with design and game mechanics. Therefore, some features and design pieces may take much more time to create than we could expect.
The important side of the projects is squad staffing. We have professional and ambitious team here, and everyone is highly involved and enthusiastic to finish the project. There might be a case, when somebody wants to leave the project for a reason. The last thing we’re going to do is to stop the project development. We do have an experience and will have funds to replace those who quits. Moreover, hiring more talented staff will definitely accelerate the development process and will add more creativity along with passion.
We try to cope with tight schedule and complete the game on time. However, there may be such moments, so called ‘force majeure situations’, when something can go wrong. In this case, we will be giving 150% of us to overcome all the challenges.
