Indie developer Wyrmkeep Entertainment is requesting your support in making Inherit the Earth: Sand and Shadows a reality. Funding an adventure game through the "usual" channels can be quite difficult, and this is not the type of game most big game companies are looking to publish or even know how to market.
With your help, Wyrmkeep will have the freedom to create the game it believes adventure gamers are seeking.
The first game, Quest for the Orb, finds Rif the Fox being accused of stealing an ancient human relic known as the Orb of Storms. He's innocent, and is able to convince the authorities that he has the skills to find the actual thief. In the company of two guards, Rif embarks on a quest to do so.
Although Rif is eventually able to prove his innocence, the Orb is apparently lost.
The Morph Tribes of the Known Lands continue their efforts to live with the loss of the Orb, which they used to predict the weather. There are rumors of the artifact’s survival, but none is credible. Even Rif doubts these rumors.
The arrival of a chieftess’ daughter with a startling revelation leads Rif to embark on a new adventure to learn the truth – assuming he can avoid the doubts of friends, threats of foes and the ravages of a great drought.
Wyrmkeep expects development to take approximately nine months from the date the project is successfully funded. The game will be released in English plus other languages depending on Stretch Goals met. Additional platforms may also be added.
A Kickstarter campaign is in progress until August 19, 2014. Wyrmkeep would appreciate your support.
