An Online Arena Combat Game
Our break out game project is an online game, 3rd person combat game based on Ancient Gladiator Arenas. We're bringing this game of death for public entertainment to life on a massive multiplayer scale. Take on the role of Gladiators as known through history and battle for honor and glory against man and beast!
This is not the usual 3rd person combat game currently online and playable today. For this game we bring the twist of the real life vital points of a human anatomy. Fighting will drain stamina and it will take cunning, timing, and everything you have to survive!
What are the differences?
Unlike your typical game of combat, you wouldn't be taking hundreds of hits and shrugging them off! Running, jumping and fighting will take stamina and taking damage to different body parts will have real consequences you can feel. Damage and states will change depending on where you are hit, causing you to have to change your tactics if injured.
3D Development Concepts:
Above are some of the concepts for our Arena maps and Gladiator Characters that will be turned in to 3D models soon enough. The funds we will raise now will go to the development of everything that needs to be made in 3D. There are tons of concepts and list of items that will be developed during this Kickstarter campaign and released as things move along, such as;
Expanded Enemy AI
Weekly Tournament System
The initial funds raised if we are successful here will go towards paying the team as we move production pipeline. Environments and characters will be concepted and then modeled, AI developed, sounds recorded and merchandise ordered. (and that's just in the first few months!) We hope to raise more than our goal but with these basic funds we can start bringing this game to life and showing you what we can do!

Risks and challenges
Every project campaign has a risk & challenges; Development delay, man power shortage, backend technical problems or difficulties; these are somewhat causes delay which results for delayed product update. However, these are normal to come for every project; developers are experiencing troubles way bigger than the mentioned above, But we always keep in mind even with these problems and challenges is that the project; whatever it takes, it must move forward.
Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
In our opinion, the biggest risk/challenge in this project/campaign is failure to receive a supporters or backers which I believe is the most painful feeling as a developer. Imagine if no one supports you, you’re alone.
But when it comes to the things which the backers will receive from pledges, it is a part of our priority and it must be done smoothly.
