Pangaea: New World is an innovative and unique FPS multi-player action game with dynamic & interactive open worlds
Pangaea: New World is an innovative and unique open-world, multi-player action game that, at its core, is a post-apocalyptic, survival, sci-fi shooter game. We performed in depth studies of a wide array of video games and genres and we were avidly and enthusiastically inspired by games such as: Stalker, Metro2033, RAGE, and Infestation. The inspiration we received from these games has driven us to create some highly ambitious content and taking cues from other genres and combining them in unique ways that make players rethink the depth and breadth of an action-oriented first person shooter game.
We are not only making a game, we are creating an entirely unique and innovative world. That means a new RPG system, entirely new art, new characters, animation, and whole lot of lore and dialogue. Pangaea: New World will be a kick-ass shooter game that has RPG elements, character customization, menacing mutant combatants, a killer story, challenging end-game content, competitive multiplayer capabilities that are tied together in an unrelenting and obstinate world where players can encounter other real players as part of their daily routine.
Pangaea provides the opportunity to encounter human players going about their business, this is something you would expect it in the real world, but to have it happen in a first person action game is unexpected and enriches the entire gaming experience. You will have the ability to ignore people just like you do in the real world, or you can engage with them. That freedom and the game play ramifications are incredible, unique, innovative, cutting-edge and transform Pangaea from a video game into an epic gaming experience for the ages.
Fans of the genre will find many interesting features in Pangaea:
This new world of the post apocalyptic event of the failed attempt to destroy the alien Ark has left behind a brutal world that is a struggle for survival. The game requires each participant to develop their character by building and incorporating better weapons and equipment to explore new territories either alone or in cooperative groups of friends.
There are fierce battles along the way with random opponents that may be encountered on the road while exploring uncharted territories. There will be a wide array of complex tasks that must be accomplished sometimes in groups and sometimes alone. There will be intense battles against marauding bandits for control of the territory.
Pangaea: New World, will permit without any extra loading, a single server for many users that integrates a unique distribution system. Under certain conditions, the other players that are encountered en-route, will be able to participate in a single server ecosystem with global events, trade, fight or simply diverge into their jobs. The player is a key figure in the world at all times, even with thousands of users on the server.
Food impacts many aspects of the game and we have established it is vital for a player’s survival. There will be many long campaigns that will require food for players that food must be either be carried along as provision and then supplemented with food that is hunted or picked. Pangaea is a very dangerous place and a player can encounter many types of situations that will require high-energy physical engagement. On a campaign a player can come across anyone of many violent and savage creatures and they must either flee or fight. There are a vast array of anomalies that can be encountered in Pangaea and always the possibility of encountering others that you have to engage in battle.
As the world emerged from the catastrophic annihilation, both the man-made and natural, the Earth slowly began to replenish itself, but there are always consequences. The high levels of radiation created a new ecosystem that has emerged in the untamed and unexplored world of Pangaea
The radiation that once was the rapacious and predatory destroyer of life has now become the progenitor of a vast array of mutated plants and animals. Pangaea has spawned, in all of its vastness and immensity a new territory, where you can find previously unknown plants and animals, both friendly and some so dangerous that a simple sting or bite can be lethal.
The game features various forms of mutated animals that have their own specific skills and these animals can be both dangerous and beneficial this feature adds an element of both suspense and intrigue to the game as a vast array of creatures will be encountered along the way with the need to make decision on the risk and benefits of the creatures.
The new world of Pangaea is a savage place where the motto of the day has change from “kill or be killed” to “kill and kill again.” Today, unlike life before the “Ark,” people’s only goal is to survive in this world, and in order to survive in this world of constant and hidden dangers, you must be hyper vigilant with a warrior's spirit and mentality. You have to be ready to fight at a moment’s notice and in order to fight you must have the proper weapons to wage war.
When the world, we once knew, went to Hell and with the emergence of the new world many warehouses and various military installations were looted and there was an increased concentration of firearms: pistols, submachine guns, shotguns, and sniper rifles ... The list is endless. All over the Earth there was an outbreak of genocide. Scientists had created super-strong armor, capable of negating the powerful strikes from firearms. This new and improved armor had the ability to sustain a direct hit from small arms fire and was, almost completely able to rebut the damage from bullets.
After the destruction of the old world, a new and more deadly arms race began. The new arms race has spawned a new breed of weapon. This new and superior high-tech weaponry is characterized by high-capacity, low accuracy and long cool down periods energy weapons. But they found a counterbalance to nullify this weapon. Using a targeted attack focused on the weapon’s high-frequency waves, the new weapon would the collapse and negate the energy weapon.
Pangaea is a new world where war is not only a reality, but it is a necessity of life, either kill or be killed. In a world typified by atavistic behaviors, your clothes are not only needed for protection from the elements, but from savage attacks. In the new world your clothes are more a necessity as essential battle equipment than as a fashion statement.
There are many types of armor in the new world and each has it benefits and disadvantages. Heavy armor, is able to securely protect against small arms fire or other types of projectile weapons, but the weight, which provides protection from firearms, has a negative impact on running speed and agility.
There is armor that protects against energy weapons, but the wearer of this type of armor is left vulnerable to projectile weapons such as small arms fire. There is a highly developed armor that will protect against all of the weapons in Pangaea, but that armor is lethal to the wearer. These are the realities and choices that must be made in Pangaea, and that impact the survival of the wearer. The vests that are worn for protection have many pockets and the enables the warrior to carry many types of amulets to ward off evil, harm, illness and to bring good fortune to the wearer.
Pangaea New World adds an atmosphere of economic reality to the game by providing the players an opportunity to influence the regions economic stability through the production, sale, and trade of items that have significant economic value. There will be vendors and merchants and the players will have speculate on the prices and sell independently.
The new economy of Pangaea is vastly different from the way goods and services flowed prior to the coming of the Ark. Today Pangaea is a truly market driven economy where only the goods and services needed for surviving are produced and sold. The economy is large and diverse featuring many shops with a wide array of products. Immortals are the source of many products sold in the shops, but the diversity of the economy is also visible in the goods and services that are traded by travelers.
These travelers inject not one products but unique and innovative products that are developed through the necessity of other cities that are visited by these vital travelers. These markets are regulated by price, geographical need, and the ingenuity of the local entrepreneurs.
There are very few vehicles that remain serviceable, so not only being able to drive these relics called transports is a great skill, but the resourcefulness and ingenuity involved to repair them is vital also. Pangaea when searched there were only hundreds, if not less of serviceable vehicles found and many of these had to be stripped and salvaged for the parts to keep others roadworthy.
Many of the old military warehouses had been destroyed and abandoned, but for the brave people who were willing to explore and scavenge are able to find massive amounts of military equipment, but most of this equipment has to undergo some type of modifications to properly operate in Pangaea.
The modification, maintenance, repair, and upkeep of the transportation assets in Pangaea is vital for the proper functioning of the inadequate and insufficient system that serves the people. It is just a rare to find mechanics that have the highly developed and specialized skills need to keep this miserable equipment working. These three jobs are highly skilled and even more in demand because they are vital for inter-city travel that has become a fee for service industry.
After the destruction of the world as we once knew it, there emerged very mystical and powerful anomalies. These anomalies are breaks in the fiber of the time and space where time and reality seem to be distorted. Fear seems to be a very real and uncontrolled emotion that is deeply experienced by humans that come into contact with these anomalies.
These anomalies are very strange places that are very frightening to most humans. Time seems to behave in some counter-intuitive way. The feelings and emotions that most people feel are very different from the normal ones when in contact with these anomalies. These anomalies are concentrated in close proximity to the “Ark” and they seem to have appeared immediately after the first penetration of humans inside the Ark.
These anomalies are very insidious and terrible zones inside Pangaea, but there are always have been and always will be the brave and fearless that are ready for the wildest and most challenging adventures they are able to find.
As we begin this odyssey through Pangaea we will take look at the pivotal role that scientist play in the entire ecosystem. It is the scientist that create new types of armor, weapons, potions, poisons, medicines, and so much more. There are people that are brave scavengers and treasure hunter that will risk life and limb to find these precious new world artifacts that hold extraordinary levels of value to players.
Once these artifacts are found and presented to the scientist the process of experimentation begins and the scientist find more and more truths, theorems, and the resolutions to the many mysteries that surround Pangaea. The longer the scientists are able to study and research the artifacts and mysteries the more information they discovered and were able to use this information to their advantage.
This is an example of one of the mysteries the scientist solved about the interaction between the artifacts and their effect on the immortals. The immortals are very hard to kill and will not die a natural death. They are very powerful beings in Pangaea, but the scientist have created potions that when properly mixed and ingested by humans provide them with immortal-like abilities.
These potions have the ability to enhance perception and recovery time. They can increase the ground speed and many other capabilities of humans both mentally and physically. These highly valued chemical mixtures have the ability to create super soldiers from the extracts of these extremely valuable, rare, and potent artifacts.
Finding and recovering Artifacts is a very arduous and challenging task. They are mainly located in close proximity to the voluminous and exceptionally hazardous and precarious abnormalities that sprinkle and pepper the dangerous and unsuspecting landscape of Pangaea. The more perilous and precarious the access to the anomaly, the more powerful properties they contain. There is a critical chemical process that must be mastered and then implemented on the artifact to extract the precious and potent liquid . The Immortals that inhabit Pangaea have also made numerous discoveries about the impact the fluids found in artifacts and mixing them in different proportions have on them. The different fluids in their capsule sometimes provide amazing results, sometimes positively and sometime negatively impact their body. Even the immortals have to be skilled in the arts and science of chemistry and to create the desired potion. With a large number of mixed liquids at the disposal of both humans and immortals the skill and knowledge of the chemist is vital if created in the proper proportion you have deadly "cocktail" that can give a person a truly amazing power.

As the very resilient and irrepressible Earth began its remarkable and magnificent ascent to life there was a vast array of flora and fauna began to flourish in the new environment and climate of Pangaea. There were many types of common vegetation that could not adapt to the new climate, but the new vegetation have developed through Darwinian evolutionary protocols− survival of the fittest. These new species of grass thrive in both sun and shade, are very slow growing, and are drought-tolerant.
The newly developed flowers of the Pangaea were extremely different and adaptable to a very harsh and predator ridden environment, so the flowers adjusted and modified to become predatory themselves. The predatory plants derive most of their nutrients from trapping and consuming animals. They have adapted to grow in Pangaea where the soil is thin and poor in nutrients.
In the continuing struggle to survive, many plants have developed adaptations to cope with predators. One of these tactics is to produce sharp thorns. This deters large animals from stripping all of the foliage. Another method of protection is for a plant to produce chemicals that either kill or deter an animal or insect from eating that plant. Plants that have both toxic chemicals and thorns are equipped to handle many different threats.
The list of occupations, professions, and trades is very long, but all of these jobs must be completed in order to provide a stable and growing economy and society in Pangaea. There is, of course, a need for the medical professions to heal the ailments of the citizens. The need for chemist and engineers is always high because they are the people that create and maintain what is referred to as the good life. The trades are also much needed professions because the tradesmen are the people that build the needed infrastructure for society for Pangaea.
The ease and comfort of one’s life in Pangaea is heavily governed by the profession one has. Having an extremely profitable profession has the ability to transform one's life from a fight for survival to a nice life with some luxuries and hope for a better future. The need for a good profession is vital to the lifestyle one is able to live. The profit one makes from a great profession will facilitate the purchase of the most high-tech weapons and armor available on the market. If weapon and armor design and manufacturing is your profession - you have the ability to personally create new innovative and unique weapons and armor that are more powerful than anything else on the market.
As Pangaea began to emerge from the darkest of time after the coming of the Ark and the annihilation that followed many survivors surfaced and the dire need to survive brought these people together in a harmony like not seen on the Earth before the coming of the ark. The communities that spring from the ruins of Pangaea were marked by cooperation and civil behavior. The division of labor was good and everyone pitched in to further the human race. This massive cooperation had many benefits such as the development of many cities, towns, forts, and many different types of settlements that spawn human society once again. This was a Utopian society where everyone was equal and everyone worked according to the needs of the larger society.
But like human society from the dawn of the species the strong began to prey on the week and the battle for power and influence began and utopia was no more. The World of Pangaea, divided into three very distinct and diametrically opposite poles: Mutants, Humans, and Kinects. Where each group is seeking wealth, revenge, power and authority.
We want to create an epic Post Apocalyptic first person shooter game that transcends the games usually encountered in this genre. But, it's been almost impossible to get funding through traditional methods for a game like this. The great thing about Kickstarter is that we can go directly to the people who love to play these games as much as we love to make them.
Plus, we don’t have to make compromises with a publisher. We make the development decisions, we market the game, and we don't have to answer to anyone but you – our fans. Our relationship with our backers is even more intimate using Kickstarter. We can be more transparent with development and give you an inside look at what goes on day-to-day with the programmers, artists, and designers of Pangaea New World.
We want to give you a behind the scenes look at the game's development, and we have fun stuff planned like developer blogs, web broadcasts, dev chats, and much, much more.
We need to raise 250K to fund an experienced team to do this right. We are asking for more than a lot of the other Kickstarter projects and that’s because we are not only making a game, we are creating a entirely new world. That means a new RPG system, entirely new art, new characters and animation and whole lot of lore and dialogue. We’ve also designed the game to have a flexible budget and scope, so if we reach our target budget goal, we have a great list stuff we can add into the mix through stretch goals. And, additional money we raise will go straight into the game to add new levels, companions, NPCs, features, and even entirely new parts of the world that will add hours and hours to the adventure.
We are indie game developers from Bishkek (Central Asia), and we have already created games called the EVO, EVO 2, Levorium and Age of Wars that were very successful. Our team members have worked diligently and independently to collect various components of this game by visiting a vast array of dilapidated factories and buildings to derive keen insight into how a post apocalypse world would appear.
We spent many years studying similar games to glean and incorporate the best ideas we discovered, but most importantly, we drilled down on the questions, comments, and suggestions of you all -- the gamers. We combined all of the information and insight extracted from many years of research and gamer engagement to create Pangaea New World a unique and innovative game that is fun and exciting to play.
We chose Kickstarter, the leading crowdfunding platform, because it has a massive community of enthusiastic, engaged, and organized members, which allows us to have open dialogue with this community throughout the process. This process allows us to create the game exactly the way the Kickstarter gaming community wants to see it and this brings a purity of development that we could not find anywhere else.
We will engage this community from concept through execution. Pangaea New World is a First-person shooter video game centered on a gun and projectile weapon-based combat through a first-person perspective. It is a multiplayer online game which is capable of servicing 30 - 40 players simultaneously in a single quest.
There is constant development
Development Based game play
Study System quests
Creating characters (NPC)
Creating monsters mutant animals
3D Development of modules for the implementation of the first buildings of the city

Creating the key points of the world. (Forts, camps, etc.)
Risks and challenges
Our Studio LVR has many years of experience in the development of video games. We have provided support services in collaboration with some projects and we have been the lead developers on our own projects. In 2010 we published the online game EVO. We are currently beta testing the online strategy Levorium and with an anticipated release date of December 2015. Since June 2014 most of the team has been working on Pangaea: New World a MMO, FPS shooter game. We have written the history of this project, created the game map, and created more than 20 gaming scenes. We have focused a tremendous amount of work and effort on the game mechanics. Our goal is to create an immense open world for players in this post-apocalyptic atmosphere. We bring many years of experience to this project and our team is working 7 days a week, which is extremely challenging, but this is a labor of love and if things don’t feel right we have been know to scrap an entire section trying to make this The Perfect Game. We don't want to release an incomplete game because we want you to feel like your money is well spent. That being said, this raises an issue and creates a scenario in which timelines become more flexible than we want them to be. The actual funding and collaboration from the Kickstarter community, will alleviate the pressures of this issue. It allows our primary developers to dedicate more of themselves to this project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
