About

 Coming soon!

Whether you are online or offline, the game world is ever changing. You could log off one day with a huge clan expanding around your territory and wake up tomorrow and find that clan gone and replaced by several smaller clans.

The game can be played both when you are online and when you are offline. When you are online, you can tactically direct your armies to harvest resources, attack enemy cities, aid your allies, or conquer neutral resource nodes, cities, or shrines. Of course, you can train your troops, construct buildings, and research upgrades. You can also perform quests and other tasks to expand your influence and grow your clan.

When you are offline, you can send your troops for one last assignment, or tell them to stay in the city to defend from possible attacks. You can also schedule troop training, building constructions, and research upgrades. You will also rely on your clan members and other allies to help defend your cities and any troops you have placed outside.

While the game has no single player or story element to it, the players will be the driving force behind much of the story. Weave an epic tale of brotherhood, honor, and betrayal by the intricate nature of shifting powers in the landscape around you.

You could be locked in a deadly war with a neighboring clan only to find them suddenly pulling back because they were attacked by another clan. You could be joining a huge clan secretly hoping to climb your way up the ranks and topple it from the inside.

Because players get the most out of the game by banding together into clans and how clans grow from player contribution, the world will shape itself depending on your clan power. It’s a completely different experience to play in a huge clan vs. a small clan, and even more so depending on if your clan is warlike or peaceful.

To help the emergent story along, events will be announced in the game to reward players for taking certain actions. An event could happen on a weekend that encourages every clan to participate in warfare, and it will no longer be safe to go out and harvest nearby resources with your troops because you need them home to defend from possible attacks. Or maybe there is an event that spawns a giant boss that encourages everyone, even rivals, to band together and defeat him.

Servers in the game are also connected. Each server serves as a realm, and players can attack each other across servers. Each server holds a king title that players may fight for. Players can also hold control of king titles on other servers. It is completely possible for a player to hold multiple king titles across multiple servers.

Players can band together to form clans. Players can perform quests and donate resources to literally grow your clan to provide greater benefits, such as increased XP or more resources generated over time.

Clan members can send each other reinforcements during war, lend and gift resources during time of crisis, or group close together to create a link formation to buff each other (more on this below).

A lot of events also have an clan component to it, and top clans will be rewarded with both literal rewards and fame. Top clans will be announced to the entire server on a weekly basis, as well as winning clans from any ongoing events.

Depending on how you place your city, and how your allies place their cities around yours, you can link your cities together in several available formations to buff each other. Some of these buffs may be to increase your building construction speed or troop attack power. Some formations will require you to separate the cities apart, which while giving you great benefits, put you at risk because your allies will take a longer time to reach you with reinforcements.

The players are not the only one who will take advantage of this. Neutral and monster cities will also utilize these formations, so sometimes it is vital to break the outlying cities and outposts before attacking the central city unless you have an overwhelming force.

Recruit and train legendary guardians such as dragons or dark knights to lead your attacks against your enemies. Some of these have specific requirements you must meet before you can even hope to find them.

You can upgrade your guardians and lend them to your allies. Each guardians come with their own unique movesets and buffs when they lead your armies. Your entire strategy changes depending on the type of guardians you can recruit. Some guardians are good at defense, and some are good at managing your city, and some are really good at attacking players or neutral cities.

Netherfire Entertainment is a mobile game developer located in sunny California. We have had prior experience working on strategy games in our past jobs. Some of these are:

As you can see, we’ve made some of the most played strategy titles in the past, and we’re already quite familiar with the typical challenges, roadblocks, and potential pitfalls that come with their development. With our experience, we can avoid mistakes and create a game with a clear vision and execution that matches this vision. We know what players look for in a strategy game and we are not afraid of providing a unique experience that we know the players will like.

We are a small studio that is relatively new. We now have about sixteen people and it took us six months to get to where we are now with this game. We want to continue to add content, new features, and polish until our first launch. Our goal is to continue to support it after launch with additional content and features. However, we want your help.

In our current plan, we want to put another two months toward the development of the game. In mobile game development, companies usually want to launch their games fast and add contents after the revenue starts to come in. We feel like this is disrespecting the players, so it is our goal to create a unique strategy experience that is complete upon launch. To do this, we’ll need additional funding from players like you. Otherwise, we’ll be forced to launch the game early in the hopes that it generates revenue to keep us going with this project.

 Your pledge money go directly into making the game. They will also go into making your pledge rewards and shipping them to you. We have invested in getting the project to this point and more money will allow for a more polished game. Your support ensures that we reach that point without having to release the game early.

 We currently do not have the means or the manpower to ship products to every single country in the world. While we would love to get the goods to you guys, it’s just a bit difficult for us to handle right now. As of now, we will only ship to US addresses.

If you live outside of US, all we can do is offer you the advice to seek out a parcel freight forwarder. Just have your rewards sent to a US address and they will forward it to your address, no matter where you are. They will be able to provide end to end tracking, but be warned such a shipping service is very expensive ($150+).

In the future, we hope to be able to directly send the rewards to our backers no matter where they live.

Risks and challenges

Netherfire Entertainment has successfully delivered a number of games (you can find us on Apple App Store, Google Play, and Amazon Store) in the past. We are fully committed to this project, and like we pointed out earlier, the point of Kickstarter is to allow us more time to polish the game and deliver a better experience. Your pledge now will not only allow us to do this, but also allow you to purchase in-game currencies at a discount and exclusive Kickstarter rewards.

Our pledge is that we will deliver what we have written on this project page as concisely and clearly as we can. So please read everything on this page - every kickstarter project is unique, and the commitments we are making to you regarding this project are completely defined here.

The biggest risk for us would be falling behind schedule and releasing the game later than we planned. We’ve constructed a carefully laid-out strategy to prevent such an outcome, complete with detailed game documentation, clearly defined milestones to achieve, etc. But video games require a great deal of R&D, especially if you are trying to deliver a unique experience and not a mere rehash. No one can predict for all the potential possibilities or problems during this process. Production delays unfortunately happen all too often in our industry.

Our most resource-intensive feature is our art. Because we are trying to provide a unique experience and feel to each slot machine, this requires completely different themes and art styles. While this is a great experience when done correctly, there are risks associated with this amount of work. We may run into implementation issues in executing, but we will do our best.

The good thing for us is that we are planning to launch this game and add in all the features we promised here after the game is launched even if we meet unexpected problems. So rest assured that everything written on this page will be delivered.

Another particular challenge to a project like this is negativity - We love your input, and really enjoy all the great suggestions that come from the large majority of our supporters. We can't include all the suggestions that we get, nor can we give you specific feedback other than noting that we do read all the comments and messages sent to us. So think before you post - threats, ultimatums and entitlement are unlikely to get you what you are asking for, and very likely that everyone else (ourselves included) will get less.

Have an issue? Send us a note - and please don't support us if you aren't satisfied with what the project is returning to you. Nothing would make us happier than having 100% of our supporters be 100% satisfied with their pledge rewards!
