Legends of the Seas is an unique free-to-play multiplayer strategy game that has you up against a friend or a random opponent in a tactical battle of the wits.
My inspiration for this game came from just sitting one day and pondering over the similarities and differences between board- and video games. I have always been a fan of board games that don't have any element of luck attached to them, no dice rolling, no card drawing and no spinning of wheels or anything similar. I mean games like Chess, Checkers, Go and Stratego, games that put you 100% in control of your fate. I came to sad realization that there aren't many video games like that, if any.
So I set out to create a spiritual successor to these games. A game that makes use of the advantages that video games present, while keeping true to the main key elements that made these games so great. The key elements for me are the absence of luck and the near infinite possibilities and strategies.
Here are some main features and goals of this game that I try to focus on:
However, to make this a good and successful game I will need your help:
The biggest risk for this project is not building up a large enough user-base which is essential for a multiplayer game to function. Also finding a way to keep this a free-to-play game and still be profitable while not making this a pay-to-win game.
To make this game playable even when there aren't a lot of active players I have planned to make the game playable over longer periods of time, where you will be notified when a match is found for you and when the opponent has made his move. That way you can close the app and return to it whenever you find suitable without having to wait for another active player. I will still need to work on making a good match making system, because in a game like this a suitable opponent is what makes the game really enjoyable.
And I have already figured out a great system to make the in-game currency relevant without making it a pay-to-win game. You don't have to worry about that as I don't want this to be a pay-to-win game no more than you do, as that would be going against everything that I created this game for.
If you can't make a donation, then there is still a couple of ways you can help:
