I will still be accepting pledges for certain rewards and add-ons at http://www.chaosdrift.net/store/ after this project ends.  Swing by and secure your copy of Chaos Drift!

Also, please look for us on Steam Greenlight!

Stretch Goal #1:  Crafting and Mining Implemented - $6800

If we reach $6800 by 11/23/2013, I will add a crafting system and a mining system to Chaos Drift.  You will be able to mine different rocks in the regular dungeons of the game for certain materials, and even have a small chance of finding rare gems.  You will also obtain some materials from bosses and regular mobs.  These materials will be able to be crafted into various weapons/armor/ and other relics.  Do you want to see this in the game?  It's up to you, Kickstarters!  

Chaos Drift is a nostalgic RPG experience.  It features a gripping story and gameplay inspired by the RPG classics of yesteryear.

Chaos Drift will allow great freedom to the player in terms of exploration and character growth.  As players level, they will be able to allocate stat points to whatever stat they wish, as well as choose which skills to augment their base class with via Chaos Orbs which they socket into their items.  Chaos Orbs grow with AP you earn from battles, giving you new and more powerful skills.  

The world of Chaos Drift is alive and vibrant.  Remember the homeless man you refused to help in the last town?  He remembers you too.  Except now he's found a place among the Society of Assassins.  

Remember the grieving mother you helped send a letter to her son?  Her son has decided to return home.  I'll bet you wish you decided to kill the boss monster in that optional cave... or all his dear mother may find is a corpse.  

The world of Chaos Drift is not just large in terms of size.  But it is filled with countless things to do.  It has depth.  Throw in the fact that you will be traveling through time, and the decisions you make become larger than life.  It will leave you yearning to replay the story again and again, wondering how different things could have been.

Risks and challenges

The number one challenge with being the sole developer is keeping my motivation. Working behind closed doors by yourself for weeks and months at a time requires superhuman concentration and effort. A successful project will give me the accountability and drive that I need to keep going in my efforts.

As with any project, there is the possibility of setbacks with the planned release date. I am confident that with hard work and transparency with the community, this project will be a total success.
