Today marks the beginning of a new age for Slashware Interactive; I am now fully committed into making this dream a reality!
I wanted to share my vision with you, and what better way than telling you about our first three projects for our interactive division?
Expedition: The New World
This is the first project we will be focusing in. There’s a working beta already and we have even got some crowdsourcing funds via 8bit-funding.com, we will take what we have and turn it into an awesome, fun and easy to pick and play game.
Our sources of inspiration are many and diverse: Seven Cities of Gold, Pirates!, Colonization and The Oregon Trail among many others. We are hoping to create an extensible framework to support playing on a XV-XVII century world sandbox, and for people to be able to create their own scenarios. Within time, people will be able to acquire special boxed editions with extended historical scenarios and cool booklets.
A massive world to explore full of mysterious races and locations; PixalWorld is a multiplayer browser based game in which you can explore the world and leave your mark on it. Build your own cities with your friends, compete in local arenas and get stronger weapons and armor. Train monsters and take them with you. All in glorious pixel art style!
There is a lot of work committed already into this project, but even so it’s not yet ready for the masses… We will make it accessible so people can jump straight into it, and add the missing critical functions and content (allowing people to create buildings and training monsters) and content (a giant world to explore, the remaining races and all the mythology behind them)
Based on the universe of Joseph Hewitt’s GearHead, and with his active cooperation, we are creating a full fledged giant mecha post apocalyptic massive multiplayer browser based amazing interactive game.
You will be able to assemble your own mecha (all official GH mechas are going to be here), salvage parts from battles and play a Cavalier in the Earth after the night of fire.
Battles will be a mix of tabletop and Active Time Battle, we are going to have all kind of vehicles (not only mecha), and you will be able to assemble your mecha lance and perform coordinate assaults!
We already have a bunch of cool pixel art made by Denzi, the rising pixel sun. You are going to love it!
