HYBRID BEASTS

Hybrid Beasts is a unique cross-genre game that brings together strategic turn-based action and open-world exploration and adventure. At its heart, teams of never before seen creatures battle against each other to conquer and defend regions of a mysterious world full of secrets, quests and adventures that are being discovered in the process. Hybrid Beasts aims to push things forward in the genre by introducing a number of novel and original features.

Features (Battles)

  • Local multiplayer for 2-6 players, online multiplayer and single player modes
  • Many original and rarely seen weapons like:
    • Huge lasers burning through the landscape
    • Sticky mines to build complex traps
    • Weaponized animals like flying fishes or armored armadillos
    • Glue cannons to keep enemy forces from advancing
    • Divine interventions for large scale destruction
    • Ice spells and snow tornados to freeze over landscape and water
    • Build large structures like bunkers, defensive towers or underground caves to rapidly change the battlefield
    • Disruptor mushrooms prevent some weapons to work in certain areas of the battlefield which can be used for complex playing strategies
    • Various shields to defend yourself and redirect damage back towards your enemies
    • Voodoo dolls to turn your enemies into zombies
    • Scuba gear to play underwater
    • Time travel for wicked long-term strategies
    • Pet cemetery weapon to bring back killed team members. However, they may be “alive”, but they are not the same...
    • Pandora’s box and other large scale weapons for massive destruction
    • Invisibility and smoke mushrooms to hide your team from enemy eyes
    • Plants and trees that grow over time continuously changing the battlefield
  • More common weaponry like shotguns, rockets, grenades, rope and jetpack is also available. Every beast needs at least a shotgun and a jetpack! ;-)
  • Power-Ups like “Double Damage” or “Super Jump” impact gameplay
  • Random events like asteroid impacts, earthquakes, blizzards or alien invasions make battles more exciting and balanced
  • Many different and devastating endgame modes that go far beyond the typical rising water
  • Most game elements can be customized and even be completely excluded from battles if players prefer to do so. For example, players can adjust the damage-dealing power and probability of occurrence for most weapons, items, power-ups, random events and endgame modes.

Features (Exploration and Adventure)

  • Explore a large, open world called “The Kingdom” with lush forests, frozen glaciers, arid deserts, uncharted volcanic landscapes, and other secret and well-hidden regions.
  • Regions drastically impact gameplay. For example, in a forest, you can dive into the clear water, whereas in colder regions, the water is frozen to a solid block of ice that can be walked on. Near the volcano, on the other hand, the water has been vaporized by molten lava that immediately kills any beast that touches it.
  • All landscapes and battlefields are handcrafted and designed with strategy and deceitful ambushes in mind. The possibility to randomly generate battlefields is additionally included.
  • The Kingdom is packed with quests to solve and mysteries to discover to ensure long term motivation. Complex storylines can be followed to unravel the secrets and lore of the land.
  • Currently over 60 battlefields can be discovered, conquered and defended on your way to be the supreme ruler of “The Kingdom”.
  • Hybrid Beasts has been developed to allow for extensions of all major game elements. Expect new battlefields, random events, power-ups, endgame modes, quests and weapons to be added regularly.

Features (Technical)

  • Hybrid Beasts is being developed using MonoGame for multi-platform support and cross-platform multiplayer.
  • Release is scheduled for PC (Q4, 2015), Linux and Mac OSX (Q2, 2016).
  • Achievements will be included!
  • DRM free
