About

Trive is an open-world sandbox game. What does that mean? The game does not tell you what to do. You are free to explore a tropical island and do what you wish. The following are features of Trive:

  • 2D Platforming
  • Randomly-Generated Island Sandbox
  • Customizable Character
  • Tribes of NPC's that run themselves
  • Ability to Join and Create Tribes
  • Tool Crafting System
  • Building System
  • Living Ecosystem with Animals and Plants
  • Tribe Chief Skill Tree
  • Modding
  • Flying Carpets
I've been working on this game for the better part of four years. This was done while completing my undergraduate. Just as my computer science programming skills developed, so did my game. It has undergone many changes in the past few years. I am a programmer, however, not an artist which is why I've created this Kickstarter.
 

     Trive is being developed by a single developer with help from multiple      artists.
