Riftwalker || Sandbox Basebuilder for Android (and Others)
Wanted to share a little project we are working on. Riftwalker! As a gamer I've always felt most phone games lack the depth to feel like a "game". A lot of them were either just too simplified or a jumbled mess. Now me, I've always been a gamer and I wanted a phone game that I could play and be proud of.
Along came the idea of Riftwalker, a project within scope of myself which now with the addition of Facebook funding and a sponsorship of a team, that vision has grown into an incredible masterpiece in progress.
So Riftwalker is a strategic basebuilder that takes place after the events of the shattering - an event that shattered the very world, believed to be the end of the Old Order, the reigning theocracy of the time. The player controls an island that he/she can shape to their liking, this island drifts through the void. Decorating and building it to the player's liking, the player will need to obtain resources in order to flourish.
The player can only produce the resource of their own faction. In order to further develop their technology, build and expand on their base the player will need to raid or form trade routes with other players, guilds and alliances.
So we're almost ready, now it's just tying everything together - servers have been developed and so has the database. Leave your thoughts in the comment, would YOU play riftwalker?
