Endeavor is a game where players form alliances to battle for land control and race to build a beacon to win the game. Each player is a robot who starts with a region of land to exploit, build upon, and gain resources from in order to expand his territory. Each server is called an Endeavor and players will choose which ones to join. There are hundreds of players in each Endeavor, all competing or joining forces to complete the beacon first. An Endeavor will continue for roughly 3 months, until one alliance takes the victory!
Each robot is initially equipped with a claw, drill, rocket launcher, and jetpack. The equipment, fuel type, and hull of a robot can be upgraded. For regions that you own, you can build or remove terrain blocks with your claw/drill. There are many objects and mechanisms available to guard your land from opposing players who will be looking to steal from you! Additionally, smaller robots can be constructed to mine and gather resources for you.
The ultimate goal for a player or alliance is to construct a beacon. The alliance to first complete this task wins the game and that Endeavor ends. Building the beacon requires lots of time, resources, and every type of Microblock available in the Endeavor.
Each region is a different biome separated by rivers. Each player begins the game with one region, but many regions will start off unclaimed. These unowned lands are occupied by creatures in the game that will attack players. Unowned regions can be taken over by force if the Microblock is found. There is one Microblock for each region, which represents it’s ownership. Region biomes include mountains, forests, deserts, floating islands, plateaus, badlands, islands and snow regions.
In addition to the player versus player servers, there will be a free-build server which allows players to create custom regions that are voted on to appear in future Endeavor games. You choose where the monsters will spawn and which bosses protect the Microblock!
Microblocks have two main purposes: region ownership and giving the robot extra abilities. Each region contains a Microblock, and stealing them allows players to take a region from another player. Additionally, Microblocks can be attached to the player’s robot for extra abilities such as improved drilling, flying, speed, teleportation, or combat.
Toast started out as a mobile development company that has produced dozens of apps and games for iOS. We are currently a team of five and based out of Lafayette, Louisiana.
Endeavor has gone through many phases and development cycles before becoming what it is now. It started out as just a voxel engine experiment on the side and is now our main focus. We have huge plans for Endeavor's future, but we will need your help in getting it there! Thank you for being part of our vision and providing your support and feedback!

Risks and challenges
Some of the biggest obstacles we face deal with creating and maintaining a server that can handle a large amount of people. This is why we focused on the multiplayer aspect from the ground up, and have spent much of our time tweaking it for the best experience possible. From what we have developed so far and with the help of your funding, we believe we can complete Endeavor within a year!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
