Wintertide is a team oriented action-multiplayer survival game that uses a first-person perspective. Players traverse across post-apocalyptic towns and lakeside cabins in the Rocky Mountains, surviving against freezing temperatures, hostile wildlife and a continuously changing hazardous environment. Players use firearms, improvised weapons and stealth in attempts to protect themselves against opposing players and hunger crazed animals. Wintertide offers a unique reincarnation feature that allows players to return from the dead as certain wildlife, dependent on their survival score at the end of their life.
Competitive Multiplayer : Survivors Vs Scavengers is Wintertides first game-mode and is a 5 vs 5 survival team death-match.
Reincarnation : YOU ARE DEAD ! These words no longer mean game over, use your survival points to reincarnate as certain wildlife. Continue the hunt to aid your team, or make them your dinner.
Hunting & Tracking : Everything leaves behind a trail to follow including you. Hunt for food and avoid being hunted at all costs.
Crafting & Looting : You will need to search for crafting items and resources to stay alive in Wintertide. Craft fires to stay warm, Loot cabins and buildings in search for useful items that can further aid you and your teammates with survival.
Day & Night Cycles : This is something that will be ultimately fine tuned in pre-alpha play tests. Currently we have 12 minutes in real world time being equal to a 24 hour day in Wintertide.
Executions : Catch your enemy off-guard and you might be prompted to perform a special execution, If you have the right tool.
For the last year we have been working day and night to bring more than just an idea to kick-starter, we wanted something tangible to build off of. We are proud to announce that Wintertides multiplayer state is currently playable ! There is still lots of work to be done. We have an awesome foundation already laid and cannot wait to improve on the features we have already introduced. Our goal is to bring gamers a winter survival game that is fun, competitive and exciting. We have created a vast dangerous winter wasteland that we enjoy spending time in, we wanted to create a game that was not only challenging for our players, but posed a challenge for us developers as well. Randomly generated hazards and dangerous wildlife with a mind of their own helped us achieve this goal.
Using ray-traces from the sky we are able to detect landscape materials and randomly generate resources accurately.
Why Kickstarter ? We decided on Kickstarter as a our crowdfunding outlet because of its success rate and amount of dedicated backers we see support projects on a daily basis.Our Kickstarter page has undergone multiple transformations and will proceed to do so as time progresses. We hope you stick around with us as we continue our venture.
Risks and challenges
When developing a game there is always a certain amount of risk involved. This is true of both Kickstarter projects, and more conventional releases. However, risk can always be minimized through having a clear vision, an experienced team and strong planning.
We hope the above pitch highlights our goals and objectives for the project, alongside our passion and enthusiasm for what we hope to create.
Although we can't completely rule-out unforeseen issues, we aim to keep every backer up-to-date as we move forward with full-time development. We see communication being a huge part of running a successful Kickstarter campaignLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
