New Independently Produced Post-Apocalyptic MMORPG
Hello El Moochadores! Right now on Kickstarter there’s a new MMORPG seeking funding. Produced by EFROB Gamebox, Skies is a Ukrainian developed RPG set in a post-apocalyptic world. I’m just guessing English is a second language to the game makers, but excuse that and check out the game’s synopsis below:
In the early 21st century solar activity increases dramatically. Just within two weeks, people lose all the benefits of civilization: cities are cut off electricity, factories are stopped, streets are immersed into chaos and disorder.
People are dying: disasters, heat, fires, diseases and mess quickly destroy the population. Cities and forests are burnt out… Rains are now dirty and dangerous, water supply systems do not work, the lack of food and drink is killing human civilization. People are searching for a shelter, hiding from the riots, heat and ash rains. Ash mixed with radioactive dust has veiled the sky, thus depriving them of the last source of energy and communication. The planet falls asleep… sunlight no longer passes through the dense layers of clouds.
Later on destruction of human empire has been restored after the terrible disaster. Game starts in 2150-2170. Some people survived in shelters that had filters cleaning the air and water from the ashes. Burning reactors faded after centuries of storms and rains, dust began to settle on the surface of the planet and the sun’s rays reappeared after 150 years of darkness.
Is the mankind strong enough to restore what they’ve destructed over the last century? What life is going to be like now?
According to their web site the game is already in development, and when finished will have 8 square kilometers of in game space; A complicated multi-level economic system dependent on player actions; PVP and TVT combats (what’s a TVT?), and a novel expanding the universe and characters. Check out the Kickstarter (link above) for more information on rewards for pledges, or visit the Skies Website. You can also follow the games progress on Facebook. Below I’ve posted the Kickstarter promo video along with a video showing a sample of the game play.
