About this project
Terra Mango is an LBS (Location-Based Strategy game) for Android and iOS devices [it really is an MMOLBTDRTS (Massively Multiplayer Online Location-Based Tower Defense Real Time Strategy game), but the guys in marketing said we had to shorten it a bit...]. As a player, you can build virtual towers where real buildings exist, battle with troops, in real space, in real time. Nearly every building in the world can be captured and used to build your team’s base. You can capture your house, your neighborhood, and your city!
You start off by collecting resources which appear all over the world; these resource are used to build your defenses as well as your army. You can build and upgrade towers on almost any plot of land which has a building on it. From here, you and your teammates battle your way through your enemies’ territories and conquer their land.
- Free-to-play and never pay-to-win
- Billions of real-world buildings to conquer
- Towers interact with other towers and troops around them; it is possible to chain enough towers together that it affects the outcome of a battle across the country!
- Story-driven gameplay and characters with real-life events playing out in the game itself
- Deep and meaningful team collaboration
Terra Mango becomes a lot more exciting as you collaborate with your teammates. It takes manpower, brute force, and resources to conquer the entire nation for your race. By teaming up with others, you can take over large swaths of enemy territory with one easy sweep.
However, the collaboration doesn’t end there. For example, you have to build research towers to unlock new technologies for yourself. Your research towers can be pooled towards a collaborative research network; as a team, the collective knowledge will give you advantages over other species. Whether it's an awesome new unit or a sweet new ability, you won't know what you're working towards until you unlock it... but you do know it will be AWESOME and help to make your race unique.
There are so many different ways this game can be expanded, and we at Breadboard are right there with you along for the ride figuring out where this game excels most. With such an active (and enthusiastic!) team of developers, your voice is heard about new features for gameplay. We are committed to creating an experience that is fun and engaging and pushes the location-based genre to the next level.
Let us start by saying, the game is going to be developed regardless of the outcome of this Kickstarter. However, with that said, this Kickstarter will allow us to give a much better experience much faster. It will help polish the graphics and UI as well as improve performance to give the smoothest gameplay possible! And most importantly, it allow us to get feedback from you and the community, so we can make a game that you'll love to play.
Risks and challenges
As with any large-scale MMO game, there are many challenges in the development process. While most of the development of the game is already complete and mostly ready to play, we recognize the potential for future setbacks which may cause the game to be delayed in development.
One major challenge is the cost of the parcel data which we use to give the user the most augmented experience; to mitigate this roadblock, we have been working with the supplier for months on negotiating the best deal for deployment. We have already integrated their data into our framework at a low cost and are ready for scaling.
As with all online services, we have to constantly worry about performance including rare scenarios and scalability. We have been working hard to improve performance and test gameplay at scale. Our team is responsive to ongoing issues, and we are confident that we can solve any performance issues addressed when the game is launched nationwide.
As we mentioned before, this game will be developed regardless of reaching our Kickstarter goal. We are close to launching a product and would really like to go above and beyond to provide a better game experience.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
