Stretch Goal #2 Surpassed

Posted by Riley Dutton (Creator)

Good morning OrbusVR backers!

When I woke up this morning I was excited to see that our overnight supporters had brought us over the $20k mark; which means we've now officially unlocked Stretch Goal #2: Additional World Boss.

Let me just take a moment to tell you about these World Bosses and why they are so great to have in the game. We'll have dungeons with bosses for 5 people to tackle, and every dungeon also has a 20-person "Central Boss" that will take a big push to defeat. But the World Bosses are on another level entirely. Not only will they be designed to require massive numbers of players (30-40 is our initial target) to take on, but even finding and summoning them is a task which will take the entire server community. 

For example, one current design for a World Boss requires that everyone facing the boss have a special type of protection potion active. So that will require the server working together to unlock that recipe, then creating enough potions for everyone to take on the boss. Then, it will take the effort of explorers in the game to discover the boss location and the method of summoning. Finally, it will take a whole legion of dedicated combatants to take it on and defeat it. This isn't something you tackle with just your Fellowship or your personal group of friends, this is something that you rally the whole community around.

Explorer's League

Our next Stretch Goal which unlocks at $30k is the Explorer's League. This is a new faction in the game that is all about exploring the realm of OrbusVR. Whether it's a scavenger hunt, a puzzle hidden deep in a forest, or discovering an ancient piece of lore text hidden away in a sunken temple, these folks want to send you on an adventure!

So if you're the kind of person that loves exploring every nook and cranny of a game, or you just love the idea of discovering a long-lost secret in the game, you're in for a treat.

Continue to help us out by spreading the world to all your friends and anyone else you think might be interested in VR, and together we'll get there!

Best,

Riley
