Get ready for the world's most competitive fantasy PvP game.
9LivesArena is a unique online RPG that is focused on 1v1 PvP in combination with an AI companion called an Ooogy that works for the player even when they are offline.
Platform: It will be released on PC initially and then ported to Xbox and Playstation.
We are also developing a companion App for mobile that allows you to order your Ooogy around to do your grinding while you are away from the main game.
Companion App: Android and iOS
- online/offline companion that works for you 24/7
- permadeath + persistent progression
- fast character development
- no fixed classes - create your own character template
- unlock loads of spells, abilities, bloodlines, spirit animals...
- resource gathering and item crafting
- blockchain based ingame items and characters
Afraid of the grind? Then 9LA has a surprise for you! It’s called an Ooogy, your AI companion that works for you. And here’s the kicker: Ooogies even continue to work while you are away from the game! Think of an Ooogy as a Tamagotchi on steroids. Think that’s great? Well, it gets better. There will even be a companion app! Whether you’re at the beach, at work, or in bed, you can order them around from your phone. You tell them to go mining, and they keep working — just as long as you leave them enough food!
“The way of the warrior is resolute acceptance of death.” — Miyamoto Musashi
Create a unique hero, train against other players in the training's grounds and level up your character. Only when you feel ready, enter the 9Lives Arena! How many victories can you achieve with 9Lives?
Your account has a shared and persistent bank box where all items and resources are safely stored. Your Ooogy levels up over time and thanks to his help, progression becomes faster as he helps unlock new bloodlines, new spells, new weapon arts and new spirit animals for you which are unlocked permanently for your account.
A character that lost his last life in the 9Lives Arena will turn into an oversized statue if he is one of your three best heroes with the highest amount of personal victories ever achieved.
Are you getting hungry to take names, and lives while you’re at it? For the truly warrior-born gamers, it will be worth the anticipation!
Unlike in traditional MMORPG's, leveling a character only takes a few hours at most. Yet, when you try new builds you might want to give it some additional practice in the trainings Arena. As your Ooogy progresses you come by great equipment much faster or have it already sitting in your bank box.
Characters have a head, chest, arms, waist and leg slot as well as one or two weapon slots. Mix armor pieces the way you like.
Every item is crafted based on blueprints. When crafted they can turn out grey, green, blue or purple. Grey items have the lowest stat budget and purple have the highest. Develop your own item strategies for your builds in combination with abilities and spells you choose. Which stats end up on your item is totally random. Craft as many as you like to get the items with the kind of stats you prefer. No pay to win here folks!
“Good against remotes is one thing. Good against the living, that’s something else.”- Han Solo
Our Items run on blockchain technology giving you true item ownership.
You will be able to trade items and characters with other players. You'll be able to see how many of an item still exists in the game and how rare they are. Certain type of items will become more rare over time as they will be taken out of circulation when a character that was wearing them dies permanently in the 9Lives Arena.
Because we are utilizing blockchain technology, anyone can audit and verify the number of items and ownership of items.
Lost Atlantean Mage Armor set
The Lost Atlantean Mage Armor set is exclusive for Kickstarter backers of certain tiers. It comes in the form of 4 crafting recipes that allows you to craft the head, chest, arms and leg pieces indefinitely while the belt cannot be crafted. All belts in 9Lives Arena are non craft-able and therefore, the rarest armor pieces in the game. Note: belts have no stats - they are vanity items.
When your Ooogy tries to craft an armor piece, it can turn out to be various quality grades ranging from the lowest grey, green, blue and the highest being purple. This is the same for every armor piece in the game to avoid pay to win! No matter how rare the looks of an armor piece or weapon are, they don't give stat advantages over more common looking armor and weapons.
Nevertheless this set will be sought after for years to come and can be sold to other players by our backers or kept for themselves for eternity :)
The Demon Skull Belts
Any Belt in 9Lives Arena comes as a limited edition. When a player dies wearing a belt, that belt is out of the game reducing the total amount left in the game. The only way to have your epic belt shown on your statues is to die on your last life wearing it... over time certain belts will be sought after and become true collectibles. The belts offered during Kickstarter are very limited edition belts and for Kickstarter backers only!
The random Ooogies
Like a classic Kinder Surprise Egg you never know what kind of Ooogy you will get.
Random Ooogies offered during our Kickstarter campaign will be a mix of a number of common and 12 royal genes and will therefore vary in appearance. The more royal traits your Ooogy has, the rarer it will be!
There are currently more than 200 million possible genetic combinations for Ooogies.
Statistically speaking, in a group of one million Ooogies, only 2 would end up with all twelve royal traits combined with the mix of common traits. But even then, the odds that those 2 would look the same are near impossible.
These are extremely Rare items that players can transfer into 7 different games (the number of games will grow).

Right now we have a fully playable alpha version of the game, which for us, by definition, means feature complete. The core gameloop is up and running.
As an indie team our marketing budget is tiny and Kickstarter will help us to reach out and connect to our core target audience. Together we can shape and balance the game into the best possible experience our core players can wish for.
Inviting you in waves will allow us to scale the back-end without giving anyone a horrible experience. It is crucial for us to have a great scale-able client/server environment ready when the game goes into official release.
Besides our initial funding goal we really want to reach US$ 500K. That would allow us to grow the team with your help and actually add an additional experience to the game.
The Spirit Warrior - Resurrection Royal
With that mode in place, heroes that died on their last life will not immediately enter the permadeath heaven. They will instead turn into spirit warriors!
These spirit warriors will be able to enter the eternal hunting grounds. A huge environment where you are thrown in with a huge amount of other Spirit warriors. A bit like a Battle Royal on steroids because whenever you kill a player in this mode you get a life back. The moment you have 9 lives restored you teleport out!
Or the moment you actually die you also teleport out. Which means if you died initially as a spirit - you are gone for good and your character turns into a statue! Or if you killed lets say 4 guys and get killed, you port out with 3 lives restored!
We are really excited to add this mode to the experience of 9Lives Arena. help us make this dream come true! Share the Kickstarter among your friends that might be interested in this kind of game! :)

Risks and challenges
Most of the project risks are already eliminated. The game is currently fully playable at Alpha stage (feature complete). Now its all about balancing, bug fixing, polishing and adding more content in the form of more ingame items, skills, weapon styles, animations etc...
The only risk remaining is the service side, we want to make sure we deliver a stable client server code and an initial online experience that is as pleasant as possible. This is one of the two reasons we decided to use Kickstarter because through the different pledge levels we can invite you guys as early as possible and scale the backend by inviting more and more players in waves...Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
