The epic story of Graywalkers spans more than 2000 years of background history, providing a deep and rich world, flavored with new takes on old legends, and mysteries waiting to be discovered.
The vision for the Graywalkers Purgatory has underlying foundations that will guide it through its development from beginning to end:
Best of Turn-Based/RPG Features – The game was inspired by some of the best turn-based/RPG games we love: the X-Com series, Fallout Series, Jagged Alliance series, the original Wasteland, Baldur’s Gate and Arcanum. We’ve melded the best features we loved from these games and added our own ideas to create a unique but familiar experience.
Epic Story, Deep Mythos & New Mysterious World – The epic story of Graywalkers spans more than 2000 years of background history, providing a deep and rich world, flavored with new takes on old legends, and mysteries waiting to be discovered.
Emergent Gameplay – We wanted to create a game where the player’s decisions and actions have the ability to change and affect the world in profound ways.
Community Interaction – One of the reasons for us being here on Kickstarter is to build a community behind this game. We want them to be a part of the development of this game as much as is reasonably possible. Part of this is our Crowd Content initiative where we will be willing to accept Content for the game as donations such as 3D models, animation, 2D art, Music, Sound, Effects and others.
Game Type – It is a 3D 3rd person role-playing game with strategic and tactical elements. You can toggle between Isometric and Perspective views.
Game Modes – There are 2 Game Modes; Campaign is the single-player epic storyline, Freeform is a single player experience where everything is procedurally generated and your measure for success is affected by influence, resources and power.
Distribution – We are planning on distributing on as many digital platforms as we can get on, including Steam, and hopefully GOG, Desura and others. Steam Keys will be available.
Current State – The game is in the Pre-Alpha stage and we currently have a combat demo. If successful, we aim to release the game in 18 months. We do plan to release an early access version when we have a solid playable full alpha version.
Platforms – The game will be created primarily for the PC (Windows, Mac and Linux). Additional platforms may be added depending on stretch goals. Potential platforms where we will port the game are PS4, PS Vita, XBox One, Wii U, Ouya and High-end Tablets (iOS & Android)
Custom Hero – Your player character is a special one, even among Graywalkers. He is your fully customizable avatar in the world, where you can choose his or her gender, race, appearance, path, skills and special abilities. Lastly, you choose how he will save the world.
Races – You can be Human or one of the Hybrids, like the Cambion, Nephilim, Dhampir. Additional possible races are the Wolfkin, Faechilde and the Hunterborne
Recruitment – Find, convince and recruit your Graywalker team members from a pool of at least 40+ playable NPCs, each with their own style, personality, motivation, relationships and history.
Levels & Experience – Gain experience points through missions and improve your characters skills and abilities each time you level up.
Strategic Management – Manage your resources, personnel, influence, technology, research, crafting and scavenging.
Exploration – Explore a country sized island with different regions, each filled with interesting locations to visit, scavenge in, influence and control.
Resources – Scavenge for resources, rebuild lost technology, recover ancient relics of power, and research entirely new technologies that fuse the powers of ancient magic and known science.
Character Paths – “Paths” are the equivalent to classes in typical RPGs. Choose a path to take such as the magic-wielding Arcanist, the weapon masterArmsmen, the stealthy Agents, the spiritually blessed Diviners, the firearms expert Soldiers, the hand-to-hand specialist Martialist, the perceptive Scouts, the versatile Adventurers, the intelligent Techs, and the lucky Survivors.
Enemies – Encounter many kinds of enemies such as zealot cultists, rival gangs, dangerous criminals, demons, fallen angels, feral vampires, rabid werewolves, zombies, ghosts, witches and other supernatural creatures of legend.
Combat Choices – When in combat, you can choose the quick and easy Strategic Combat or the down and dirty Turn-based Tactical Combat.
Strategic Combat – Resolve combat quickly and automatically especially when fighting enemies you know you can overwhelm.
Tactical Combat – Control up to 6 characters per team, and have multiple teams working in concert to execute tactical maneuvers against many or more powerful foes.
Special Abilities – Each character has a list of special abilities which are dependent on his Race, Path and Style.
In addition to the core features, there are several features which may make the game stand out
Wyldekarde RPG System – The game will utilize a simpler version of the upcoming generic table top rpg system.
Emergent Gameplay – What you do and don’t do will affect the world and have consequences which will change it as well. This is common in strategy games but is rare among tactical turn-based games.
Procedural World – The game will rely on procedural content for the Campaign but most heavily in the Freeform mode of play.
Crowd Content – This initiative will allow people to share their talents to the game by contributing content such as 3d Models, 2d Art, music, sound effects, animations and others.
