About

An exciting online fantasy role playing game with an immersive story, character progression, unique loot, and a deep history for you to uncover.

While Varatta is currently in the alpha development stage, it will be a role playing game designed for you, the lovers of the RPG genre and even those who have never played an RPG and wish to explore a new world. We have much in store for you as you play and interact with the world of Varatta.

You will start off on the unforgiving lands of The Arylind Tundra as you further explore and conquer foes and challenges through quests, within dungeons, and much more.

You will have the chance to delve deeper into the world and discover the vast lands of the continent of Ya'Fjora and all of its 8 provinces and surrounding regions and eventually all the continents within the planet of Karidon.

With great emphasis being put on storytelling and lore Varatta: Slayer of Zel'Alar is sure to be a captivating gameplay experience every step of the way. So please, join us in creating the online role-playing game we would all love to see come to life!

We are raising these funds in order to build the foundations of Varatta: Slayer of Zel'Alar and to develop an alpha testable version through to completion with your continued generous support.

Varatta: Slayer of Zel'Alar will take place in a massive universe with a rich history and a deep, intertwined story for each and every zone. There will be mysteries and secrets to uncover to better understand the environment and its past as you play through the main story line. The full release of the game will contain different zones and continents for you to explore, quest, raid and have the ability to obtain unique new loot as you progress through the entire world.

 Varatta: Slayer of Zel'Alar will be easy to learn and understand but complex as a whole with a deep mechanical structure and a vast world to explore while uncovering secrets and employing a creative mindset to solve abstract challenges as you progress.

Questing should be a unique and exciting experience and not just a means to get through the game and get to "the good stuff". Questing will give players different choices on how they might want to complete quests and will be designed to really familiarize the player with the entire game. You may have no obligation to go on quests but the refreshing experience it brings along with it, as well as the new places, characters and items it introduces you to will make questing all the more enticing.

The most primal and astute race of people to inhabit the planet of Karidon known as the Mystic Elves of Norazia suffered a harsh and inevitable fate when their native lands were enveloped by the unforgiving seas. Those that managed to escape with their lives, spread out on all continents of Karidon in order to start over and reclaim their glory.

On the continent of Ya'Fjora, even most shrewd minds among the Mystic Elves would fall to a dark temptation which spoke of replenishing all their long-lost glory and rebuilding the once great empires they ruled... but things would not go as planned.

Ya'Fjora turned out not only to be home to a deity with insidious motives, but a land often invaded by beings from outside of Karidon in search of the invaluable treasure it possessed; The Vessel of the Void.

Little is known about the ancient history of the continent, for in the past centuries there's been nothing but brutal clashes between the savage clans who strive for survival, power and influence. Through the ages the only remnants left by the Mystic Elves have been old ruins of what appear to be altars of worship, but not much else has been found. Meanwhile the two most powerful clans, the Valydions and the Barvokans have managed to clasp the reigns of dominance— ignorant of the past the looms over the volatile continent.... but perhaps one clan has caught on to more than they should.

Much lies to be uncovered in the history of Varatta as old Titans are awakened and the guardians of each continent must battle for the salvation of that which they must protect. Primordials who wish to banish the past from controlling the future will put everything at stake... and it might just be up to the mortals to determine their own fate and future. Though it will not be easy.

With the many Gods, titans, guardians and their worshipers within Varatta, there will be regions and villages that welcome you with open arms and some who will want nothing more than to see you perish. Often you must find your way through tough situations by saying the right things and if that doesn't work, then brute strength.

The monsters that roam the world are part of a larger engrossing story. Spawns of a higher deity or bands and clans looking to conquer. The monsters and enemies offer deep insight into your environment and contribute to the entire story as a whole. You might find foes native to far away lands, recognizable by their strange characteristics, wreaking havoc which you must fend off strategically and quite often you will need to venture off to other continents to defeat the bosses in command.

The more you progress through your adventures, the more challenges await you. There will be solo dungeons you must conquer during quests, while exploring or in search of better armor and weaponry and once you are confident enough in your abilities, you will be able to go on raids with companions in order to grow even stronger and find some exciting loot to add to your inventory and eventually you will be able to embark on large expeditions that require you to be fully prepared and to possess a hefty amount of resources in order to sustain yourself.

We have a great vision and high hopes for the future of Varatta. The story is written to carry into the future as an even better and more enthralling gameplay experience than when it started.

Our ultimate goal is to exceed expectations with an RPG that provides endless hours of enjoyment and to familiarize you to the universe of Varatta starting with the release of Varatta: Slayer of Zel'Alar and through to further progressions of the RPG, then ultimately we wish to revamp and scale up the entire project and welcome you to a bigger universe of Varatta as a groundbreaking new MMORPG while keeping the same uniqueness and feeling of familiarity with its predecessor RPG! We hope you join us and stick around to see what the future holds, because it will surely be worth it and your endless support will remain appreciated through every success and milestone.

•The world of Varatta consists of a deep story line we will work hard to familiarize you with through actual game play and interaction with the in-game universe.

•We would like you to feel as if at any given moment and location, you are standing on an area with great history and a unique story of its own, often times gaining a further sense of clarity and greater understanding of the world as you play on and uncover the mysteries of the vast lands around you.

We are estimating to have the alpha version of Varatta: Slayer of Zel'Alar out and ready for our backers to test by October 2018.

Upon successfully reaching enough funds to develop the initial foundation of the game with your help, we will need your continuous support to raise the funds needed for the full release of Varatta: Slayer of Zel'Alar which is estimated to be around the winter of 2020!

•Create Varatta with considerations of your feedback strongly incorporated into the development process.

•Design mechanics and ways of interacting with the game that add scale and new dimensions to the whole experience.

•Create the world in such a manner that gives the player a sense that the flow of time is persistent regardless of the player's input into every aspect of the game.

•Make choices matter inside the game— similarly to the real world.

•To give you options and create challenges where you must consistently weigh out the benefits of each choice and be tactful in overcoming those challenges.

MOST IMPORTANTLY— To earn your feedback, input, and approval as our supporters, player base, and lovers of the role-playing game genre.

We want to spark your curiosity within the world of Varatta and for you to feel that your character is an alternate representation of yourself within the game, whether you want to play as:

 At Atlantra Entertainment we are a team of developers who love the role playing game genre. From the beginning, role playing games have always been near and dear to our hearts. The ability to explore a vast world to control your own destiny and to be a part of a universe that's so different yet just as grand and intricate as our own has always been a huge factor in the sense of satisfaction we get from playing an RPG, and it's no wonder why role playing games have the followings that they do.

In 2016 we came together in creating a role playing game that would be enjoyable by all to play. We initially started with an idea to make a game that would take place in its own world with a deep history and enveloping lore that you would love playing just as much as we would enjoy the creative process of making it.

This is why we wish to take on this massive project to create Varatta as a brand new, fresh, and exciting RPG experience with the goal of welcoming people like you and all those who love to play RPGs or games in general to join us in the process of creating both a community and a game that will provide us all with endless hours of enjoyment.

We have been working interminably at constructing an enthralling story with great depth in past, present, and future in order to carry Varatta forward for many years to come, meanwhile our modest team of developers have been tirelessly laying the groundwork for the foundation of the very early stages of the game. We are working on building a product to better present the entire experience we want to bring to you and in order to do that, we're going to need your generous support in developing and delivering the content you want to see.

We kindly ask you to join us in developing the very beginnings of an exciting RPG that will provide endless hours of fun and magic for many years to come.

We would like to thank you in advance for your help and generosity. Your donations will not only provide the initial funds needed to allow us to continue developing Varatta but also the invaluable inspiration and motivation to keep pushing forward in developing something that will exceed your expectations.

Your generosity truly means the world to us. Thank you again for joining us on our journey to bring you something you'll love playing just as much as we love making it.

Risks and challenges

Thankfully thus far all the challenges that we have been met with haven't posed too many problems or delays. The main challenge at the moment is getting the funds required to push the project forward to a stage where we have a product able to be enjoyed by others.

Another aspect of the project that may pose a challenge is coordinating the entire story of Varatta that we have worked on for over a year to create into a playable story line that makes sense and is enjoyable to play by everyone.

We're confident that we have a solid grasp on how to move forward with creating Varatta to ensure a captivating and wholesome gameplay experience for all and we're looking forward to facing the challenges with your support!
