WE'RE NOW ON STEAM GREENLIGHT! ALL SUPPORT GREATLY APPRECIATED!



Steamcommunity.com

Lightrise is a skill-based, player vs. player combat game which at the core is focused on fun, fluent and fast-paced combat. Lightrise gives players a combat experience not quite like anything else available out there.

Lightrise has much more depth than a traditional one-shot, one-kill FPS, but at the same time does not have any of the familiar restraints such as classes, roles and load outs that are typically found in games of the genre today. Right from the start, each player has access to an identical arsenal of spells and skills - the playing field is as even as it could be - no flavor of the month builds, no over-powered load out configuration.

Every player can shoot a bow, cast a fireball or swing a sword without any artificial restrictions. Every win and loss will be determined solely by how well you play in that moment.

Features

  • full tutorial for new players
  • fast-paced and responsive player control
  • over 25 unique skills
  • global leaderboard
  • regional servers cover US, EU, AUS, ASIA and Japan.
  • Ability to make customized rooms and restrict by password, XP and even highest allowed ping.
  • global chat with IRC integration/kill callouts
  • several unique game modes planned in addition to traditional Duel and FFA.
  • bolts, CCs, AOE's, rays, cross-heals, knock-ups, drains, leeches and more
  • target practice mini-game
  • create parties with minimap blips for group duels!
  • high ceiling 100% skill-based gameplay (the highest?)
  • manage health, stamina and mana with stat-transfers, potions and food
  • no builds, classes, choices or loadouts!
  • no limit on the number of abilities a player can use at any time (except those self-imposed)
  • amazingly simple, intuitive keyboard setup
  • auto-cast option for every skill
  • extensive avatar customization for uniqueness including color
  • currently up to 10 players per room (could increase)

Lightrise 0.9.7 patch notes

News

0.9.7 - May 22nd, 2015

- Removed dynamic LOD levels for now because they were causing a lot of load lag.
- Raised minimum detail distance on trees since it was causing some casting effects to be seen through trees
- Yet another potential fix for equipment groups between players (and self) getting out of whack. This one might actually work!
- Fixed an issue where if you selected a spell after beginning a melee attack, it would switch the camera prematurely.
- Fixed suicide death every kill.
- Made wins give more XP, left losses the same. Made max XP loss per fight 125 and upped max XP win per fight to 250.
- Fixed issue with minimap having transparent areas due to tree conflicts
- Fixed melee still doing damage on Dueling game mode
- Updated many textures
- Reduced blind from link stream on BloodDrain
- Disabled melee back damage until I can figure out a reliable solution for it. Chances are I'm going to have to redo melee, with the "sweeping" colliders as I have them now, there's a lot of error in registering back vs front reliably.
- Added hit effect feedback on hit player for Lightning strike

I signed up for alpha, and am really impressed with the combat. You've somehow made it more fluid than most of the big-name companies have been able to. It feels like Darkfall (original) when moving and using spells.

I look forward to the population growing, so that I can work on my duel win ratio! :)
