Deiland - RPG, adventure and sandbox game in a little planet
Deiland is an adventure and RPG game with some special sandbox mechanics: farming, crafting, building, combat and more on PC and PlayStation 4!
Deiland is an experience for a single player which seeks to surprise players with every detail. It is a calm game, with a carefully crafted visual aspect and an interesting narrative.

A long time ago, when the universe was young, children were sent to Minor Planets. Their mission was to awaken the magic of the Crystals kept within the planet's interior. This is the story of Arco, the youngest of these children who lives on the smallest planet, Deiland. The tiniest of them all.
Of course, looking after a planet is a lot of hard work, no matter how small that planet may be.
Deiland is a small living world, where everything evolves according to the actions taken by the player. There are many species of trees, plants, crops and flowers that will make our planet a unique and special place.
In addition to the day/night cycle, natural effects occasionally occur that the player must learn to take advantage of: meteor showers, storms, shooting stars, auroral borealis or hurricane winds.
We can also make small constructions that will make our lives easier: bonfires to warm ourselves and illuminate some areas, wells to store rainwater, fencing to protect crops, etc. Little by little we will develop our skill as a builder and extend our cabin, with a workshop, a kitchen and a laboratory.
Deiland is our home, and living on this small planet will be an unique experience to each player.
Planet Deiland is sited in a universe shared by a number of different races: humans, anks, cat children, etc ... and where magic is very much part of life. Along the game we can visit other external locations, like planet Ankora. This places are oriented to the exploration, to complete special quests and get items that we can not produce by our own.
Arco is a 10 year old boy who lives on Deiland in solitude. He does not know about his past or what his purpose on the planet is; that is something that he will discover with time.
Arco interacts with his environment through the tools he manufactures in his workshop. Each new tool enables new interactions and game mechanics; furthermore, tools can be improved leading to even more advantages.
We will have an ax to cut down trees, a hammer to build, a hoe to grow things, a fishing rod and even a magic staff that will help us channel the magic of the Crystal.
Arco is a very special child, he wears a red cape and a pendant with a small Crystal stone.
Our little planet has attracted the attention of some characters who live in nearby locations. Soon they will come to meet us and offer us deals and barter with products that we can not get on our own.

We devised this project from the artistic and visual to the mechanics and development. That's why we started working a lot in the narrative and the concept phase to design the characters and all that involves them. This is a small sample of our initial work.

We consider music an essential artistic element to transmit emotions in a video game. That's why we have created a unique Soundtrack for Deiland.
The musician Paco Mitos has composed 14 themes to accompany the whole experience of the game.

In addition, we have been lucky enough to count on some compositions by Rafa Giménez, who brings his artistic quality in composition and production to some scenes that convey the peace lifestyle on the planet Deiland. He has completed the OST with 6 themes more.

We are a small team of young people who are very enthusiastic about video games. We have been working together for several years on mobile games. The development of Deiland has been our biggest challenge so far, in all aspects.
We have also received collaborations from the animation school Primer Frame.

Deiland is a game that is already in a state of advanced development (having already invested more than a year on development). Most of the pictures and videos we have shown are already integrated in the game and we are just a few short months away from finishing the first version of the game.
The game will be released on PlayStation 4, but we would also like to prepare a PC version (by mid 2018) and this is the main reason for our funding requirement. Furthermore, we would like to include some stretch goals: more 3D characters, enhancements for Arco, new objects and other locations off the planet that will extend the gaming experience.
Deiland is a very narrative game, so it has a lot of text to translate. Our financial resources are limited and we would like to include more languages than we can handle today. Part of the money raised will be used to cover these languages. What languages will be added? This will depend on the provenance of our backers.
We want to hear from you and this campaign is a splendid opportunity for us to listen to what you have to say that will surely indicate improvements to be made and suggestions for the final version of the game.

Your social support add new Crystal, increasing the magic power of Deiland. Each Crystal level will unlock special magic contents in the game!
Risks and challenges
The Chibig studio comprises a small group of people who have worked hard for a year to advance significantly the development of Deiland; consequently, the game will be a reality soon and incompletion rendered an impossibility.
Deiland is our first video game for consoles and PCs and is our longest development (so far we had only released mobile games). This can cause some small problems that require additional polishing (such as improving some mechanics, balancing the difficulty, etc.) that we intend to achieve through the feedback provided by the players. We want Deiland to be a good and memorable game, and for that reason we are counting on your help in this final phase of development.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
