Reign of X (ROX)
A new deep strategy RPG on Steam PC
- Experienced industry veterans creating a rogue like strategy RPG title
- Beat enemies with unique classes & skills
- All 100+ characters including enemies can be added to your squad
- Strategically switch between heroes to conquer the monsters
ROX is a rogue like action RPG set in a medieval, high fantasy setting . You take control of the main protagonist, but as you progress through the game, you are able to unlock other heroes with different classes and abilities. You can also switch to these heroes to level them up.
The objective of the game is to train your heroes and then use them to take control of various areas of the map by defeating that region’s unique boss. Eventually you will take the whole world map, and this must all be done without dying.
- Complex Opponents - Strong opponent AI.
- Destroying opponents makes them join your team.
- Fight as an army with those you have saved--108 Heroes to save in total.
- Destroying your opponents gives Enn their abilities.
- Only with the power you steal from your opponents can you defeat your enemies.
- Two different world ravaged by the battle between Heroes and Monsters.
- You become what you kill, as you defeat enemies you take on their powers.
- Your character takes on the defeated monsters characteristics and your armor transforms to take on the qualities of the monsters you kill.
The dark ones have been released from their confinement, spreading like a disease along the idyllic lands of the Chymeria. Their cursed darkness ravaged the land, changing people—elves, humans, and dwarves alike. They were mutated into monsters bent on death and destruction, turning the land into a doomed hellscape.
Word of their horrors has reached Enn, an elven warrior who was raised to protect those in need. Along her journey, she encounters other heroes who are duty bound to protect those being consumed by the spreading evil.
But what is this darkness that is invading the lands and the lives of Chymeria’s people? Where did it come from? As each new victory brings more information, Enn is starting to think she would rather remain in the dark…With little standing in the way of the destruction of the world, she must rise up and fight the spreading darkness. No matter the cost.
- One main character, but multiple characters can be unlocked through progression.
- As you conquer regions, you must manage their resources. Resources are used to craft weapons, armor, gear, and spells. Resources are also used to power portals to open up new regions. If resources are mismanaged, then portals might get shut off to these various regions.
- All characters have different skill trees.
- Regions and their contents are all randomly generated at the start of each play through.
- Defeating each region’s boss will make the remaining bosses more powerful
As you play through ROX, heroes cards will come in droves and unlock unique skills.
How to obtain:
- You can gain it from the rare chest box randomly spawn or drop.
- Every monster you encounter, you have the option to slay or to heal it. If you choose to slay it, then you have a chance of an equipment dropping. If you choose to heal it, you'll sacrifice your life force, and you'll obtain the purified hero (card) correlated to the infected monster.
- From the elaborate event, story.
- Once you recruit the heroes, they become your mercenary. Combine the hero’s skill to improve battle skills and defensive measure against enemies.
- The 108 Hero cards are associated with the inventory system and effects weapons and armors. The number of collected heroes adds to the accumulated XP of Enn.
- The power of your troops(Heroes) depends on your management of their match formation.
- Each character has a unique skill tree
- As the character gains levels, the skills increase in power as well
- Defeating region bosses give the player the ability to tweak or modify a particular portion of the tree.
○ Defeating region 1 boss gives the player the ability to modify a skill by increasing its damage output.
○ Defeating region 2 boss then gives increased attack speed. So now the character has both increased damage and attack speed to his skills.
- Characters have three basic stats: Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence.
- Stat numbers all affect skills and abilities of the character.
- For example, a high dexterity character will naturally have a higher dodge chance.
- Regions are all procedural generated at the start of a Character’s session.
- Each region will contain an assortment of monsters based on the procedural generation.
- Also, regions provide resources for crafting gear and spells as well as resources needed to unlock other regions. Players must decide which regions to unlock as they go along in their progress.
- It is entirely possible that a region will become unavailable for that play session through a series of bad choices made by the player.
- Each region will also have a unique main boss that the player must defeat in order to gain control of the region.
- Player must spawn regional bosses by completing objectives within that region.
- Simple and clear, well-trod formula and executing it with incredible style.
- You can customize your own HUD. It can be moved wherever you want.
- Players must perform a variety of different actions in order to spawn a boss.
- Example #1: Player must kill X amount of mobs for boss to spawn.(simplest)
- Example #2: Player must deal X amount of damage in a single blow to a mob.
- Example #3: Player must solve a logic puzzle.
- Any combination of the above and more, depending on the region level and difficulty.

Although we aim at a delivery the game items when we release the game in November 2020, but we are planning to ship those merchandise products early in November 2019. However, there are always unexpected problems in place such as translation, printing, shipping, so please bear in mind that this is an estimate.
T-shirt sizes will be sorted out in the pledge survey that will be sent when the Kickstarter campaign is over.
No shipping costs for the digital products, but physical products need it. Shipping cost is NOT included in the pledge but will be added once you’ve decided at what level you want to pledge. We know that shipping cost is hard to be calculated because it’s depend on the package and the country, but we promise that we will try to minimize the cost.
- We intend to complete ROX with the money raised by this Kickstarter.
- The producer will manage the budget in correspondence with the production schedule.
- The majority of the money raised will be used in the production of the game.
As an award winning artist and an art director for game studios including Relic Entertainment, Smoking Gun, Klei, and IGG, I have met so many talented people. We had similar interests and most importantly, passion for creating good games. That was how Reign of X (ROX) project was born 4 years ago. Through the years, I have been the main driving force of the project but all of us working full time and working on this project in our spare times was not enough. Recently I left my job to fully focus on this game and after spending tens of thousands of dollars from my own pocket, it got to this point.
This Kickstarter will determine the fate of ROX and 4 years of our team’s hard work. Our goal is to bring the most immersive combat RPG title for gaming community and I hope we can launch this game, together.
Risks and challenges
The completion date for the game is an estimate based upon our past experience. However should some features take longer than expected to implement, there is a chance that the completion date will slip.We promise to remain transparent with backers and to keep them up to date with any changes. Rest assured, though. We will make this game. That's a promise. But to truly make the game we dream of, we need your help. The money raised from this campaign will do just that.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
