Story-driven RPG with real-time combat


For long ages past, Artara was a place of great peace and beauty. Then… a mysterious event took place. Within a few generations, the land was broken and the skies darkened. More than a thousand years has passed since then.

As a young boy, you came upon the base of an immense tower, uncovered by another violent earthquake. Deep below sleeps an ancient power. Since that day, you have been drawn inexorably to this place. Your task is to lead a group of champions and reach whatever resides on the last level. There you will face the ultimate choice…

Main Features:

  • Deep story
  • 13 hand-crafted levels across four graphic themes
  • Advanced combat system – tactical real-time with slow-time where tactics > equipment
  • 7 diverse classes with unique skills and new progression system
  • No XP system, discover ancient knowledge to unlock new skills and carefully design your characters
  • Adjust the party as needed, depending on the challenges you face
  • Random combat and random loot system
  • Rich equipment, crafting, enchanting
  • Upgradable city as the main training/equipment hub

    Lead a party of your strongest champions and discover the history of the land and the tower itself as they explore the depths. Follow the main storyline, and complete many secondary quests and puzzles. The place is rich with lore if you wish to uncover it. The tower is unthinkably huge, and it has a consciousness. She is fair but you do not know her true agenda, and she is watching you…

    Defeat all that stands in your way as you descend the massive tower. Battles take place in real-time with a slow-motion option. You will need tactical acumen and careful use of your team members’ skills and strengths to prevail. A diverse range of enemies spawn in different locations. No two encounters are ever the same.

    Choose from seven classes, each with its own roles and unique skills. Influence the battlefield to your advantage and control the flow of combat. Create walls and traps. Summon various allies. Stun, slow, and daze your enemies. Inflict burning, poison, and bleeding. Shatter their armor or elemental resistance. Boost your champions with a wide range of buffs.

    Protect your fragile damage dealers with your strong warriors. Reposition your heroes across the battlefield in response to new threats. Mana is a finite resource and it regenerates slowly. You will always have dozens of options during combat, but you cannot execute them all. So choose wisely.

    Establish your city at the base of the Tower. As you discover forgotten knowledge, you can upgrade buildings and train your champions in ancient techniques, provided you have the necessary resources. The ToT RPG system is refreshingly novel, with each attribute equally important for all classes, whether front-line melee tanks, fragile but deadly range characters, or physical-damage dealers. Craft and enchant a massive range of weapons and equipment with resources found during your exploration.

    Event Horizon is an independent studio. Our aim is to create an engaging story-driven RPG, featuring a new class progression system along with exciting crafting and enchanting. The novel slow-time option in the real-time combat allows careful preparation and tactical awareness to be used to devastating effect.

    The final version of the game will offer about 30 hours of gameplay. Early Access (8 hours of gameplay) is scheduled to start in 3-4 weeks. The full release is planned for 2-3 months after that, following refinements based on the feedback received.

ABOUT THIS GAME

For long ages past, Artara was a place of great peace and beauty. Then, a mysterious event took place. Within a few generations, the land was broken and the skies darkened. More than a thousand years of decline has passed since then.

As a young boy, you came upon the base of an immense Tower, uncovered by yet another violent earthquake. Deep below sleeps an ancient power. Since that day, you have been drawn inexorably to this place. Your task is to lead a group of champions and reach whatever resides in the depths of the Tower. There you will face the ultimate choice…

Tower of Time is a classic RPG with a few added novelties. It has hand-crafted levels filled with various enemies, challenging puzzles, and engaging story-lines. Its dynamic real-time combat with slow mode requires tactical awareness and careful preparation of the party.

Features:

  • Engaging story – set in a world where technology met magic with devastating consequences. Hundreds of lore books and scattered pieces of information slowly reveal the history of Artara as the protagonist approaches his fate.

  • Find secret locations, cleverly hidden in the environment. Travel through hand-crafted levels where every single place is carefully designed. Discover forgotten scrolls and guess their powers based on the cryptic description. Meet various NPCs, some native to the world and some coming from… strange places.

  • Advanced combat system – unique real-time action with a slow-time feature, where each match is played on one of many separate tactical maps and where even most powerful champions can fail without refined tactics. Plan ahead and position your party accordingly. Use slow-time to react to new threats or negate enemy skills. Converse your magic energy and survive all enemy waves. No two encounters are ever the same.

  • There are seven classes to choose from, and your party can be adjusted at will and anytime, depending on the challenges you face. Each champion has unique skills that can be upgraded and re-trained at will. Those upgrades often change the nature of the skills. For example, your Summon Elemental skill can either be a durable melee Ent with high health and armor or a fragile Water Elemental with devastating range attack. (In Early Access six champions are available, as the seventh joins your party at lower levels).

  • New character progression system: there is no experience to gain. Instead, discover ancient knowledge to unlock new skills and carefully design your characters. Each character could be turned into a powerful and durable attacker or a skill-based champion.

  • Defeat powerful elite enemies wielding diverse skills and spells. Assess their strengths and weaknesses carefully to succeed. Complete combat challenges for item rewards and unique enchanting recipes, or just to test your new party setup.

  • Gather crafting crystals of various types to create items of different power. Discover ancient enchanting recipes that, while very expensive, can change the nature of the combat, granting regeneration aura or immunity to special effects.

  • Upgrade your city as the main training/equipment hub and repository of all the lore you find.

Hello,

Any comments to our project are highly appreciated. Our aim is to create classic RPG where story is as important as the graphics/effects. Some examples of what we consider as "classic"- Might and Magic series (III-V), Wizardry 7 and 8, Baldur's Gate

Expected gameplay time for full release is time 20-30h, depending on how deep player will want to get involved in discovering the history and lore of Artara.
