About

 New Gameplay Trailer: 

Warped: Metaverse is a 3D Action-Adventure game that challenges players to use interesting mechanics learned through the course of the game to defeat enemies and save the world. Players interact with the world through Jay, a hero chosen by fate to stop Kreinold, a villain bent on causing mayhem.

Players are free to choose how they progress through their quest, and liberating worlds from Kreinold's clutches allows Jay to meet new comrades and fell dangerous enemies. Players are free to progress at their own pace and can re-visit conquered areas whenever they wish. Additional endings, hidden collectibles, and engaging side-quests encourage replay-ability, and help truly immerse players in the rich worlds of the Metaverse.

Additionally, each world the player explores throughout their journey introduces new mechanics to Jay, borrowing elements from other game genres such as platforming, puzzling, action-combat, and more!

Each world has it's own immersive setting; you can enjoy fun activities from discovering hidden treasure, to solving challenging puzzles, or even RC-car racing.

 The history of Aldora tells of a peaceful and quiet Multiverse filled with many Realms; unique and different, yet connected. For as long as even the ancient can remember, every cycle of thirteen years the Realms would align and channel the mysterious and power energy of The Beacon to choose the next Anointed of the land. Anointed individuals had powers above others, allowing them to walk through the Realms and ensure peace throughout the lands.

For reasons unknown, Kreinold The Fallen stole the power of The Anointed for himself and begun sapping the power of Realms for his own purposes, casting the cycle asunder. Jay became chosen by Destiny to take up Fate's Blade, liberate the oppressed Realms, and set right what once went wrong. 

Following a horrible accident Jay's memory was wiped, and he was banished to a different Realm. Our journey begins with Jay's old friend and mentor, Odis, finally completing his communicator-inator... (his name not mine) and bring Jay back to his old home. As Jay travels through the Realms he will gain each of the land's power until his final confrontation with Kreinold where they face off, the fate of the Metaverse in the balance.

Will you answer the call to Destiny?

Jay in "Hero's Outfit"
Jay in "Hero's Outfit"

Jay is a young, charismatic, and friendly hero with a backround shrouded in mystery. He lived in the lush, beautiful Realm of Arcadia, until one day he left without a trace. Uncover Jay's past as he goes not only on a journey to save the Metaverse, but also a quest to discover himself. Jay also gains the unique power to learn the powers of Realms he travels through in order to aid his quest, and these mechanics will allow the player to defeat enemies and overcome challenges otherwise beyond reach.

WHO IS ODIS?

Odis has been with Jay for several years as they've worked on scientific projects together. He's always acted as a mentor and guide for Jay, working with him through thick-and-thin, teaching him how to explore and interact with the world around. He not only acts as a guide for the player through Arkadia and beyond, but he also appears as a friendly face who assists Jay with interesting and helpful gadgets!

We had a huge amount of fun experimenting with music for Warped Metaverse, and working on the project has really pushed us to improve in some rather unexpected ways.  

One of the main tasks of a music composer for media is to know when not to get in the way of on-screen action, when to lead the emotion through a scene, and just as importantly when not to. This was something that took time to get right; repetition of little motifs and ideas seems obvious, but adding it in a way that the player doesn't consciously notice, unless wanted, is a challenging task!  

Something seen a lot in music loops nowadays is the lack of variation in dynamics. As such, we decided to experiment in this direction, and it quickly morphed early on in the process to having a lot of small swells and fades; this was tricky to get right in a way that the player wouldn't find annoying, but felt very satisfying once it was in place, and became one of the core aspects in tying the soundtrack together.  Just using music samples (no live instruments...unless this gets funded, of course!) to accomplish this, however, was quite the challenge, as something that would come naturally to a live player becomes massively clunky and mechanical with samples. However, we used this shortcoming as an advantage, crafting a unique feel and sound to the music.


          If successfully funded, there will be four main improvements to our music:

  •  Blending orchestral and non-orchestral sounds together will give extra depth to the soundtrack.  
  •  Reworking the existing pieces, as there were so many little ideas or fragments of pieces that didn't have time to be made, would really bring the OST to life.  
  • Most importantly audio-Wwise (please someone get that joke!), will be integrating an adaptive audio engine in order to really enhance player immersion. 
  • Lastly, a lifelong dream is to work with a live orchestra. I just had to add this one!  

Thank you so much for taking the time to consider pledging! We really hope you enjoy the Kickstarter demo music, and I personally can't wait to compose more for you in the future.

Why Kickstarter

Warped: Metaverse is a game that is already in a state of advanced development (having already invested more than a year on development). We can finish the game on our own, but we want to involve you in this development. With your help, we can make the best possible version of Warped in a timely manner.  

If successfully funded, Warped: Metaverse will be released on Windows, Mac, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. However, the exact timing and scope of each version will be determined by the success of this Kickstarter campaign.

Risks and challenges

PrimeShots Studios is comprised of a small group who have worked hard for about a year to develop Warped: Metaverse thus far. Regardless of funding this game will release on PC, but as our first publicly-released video game for consoles this project will be our longest and most difficult development.
