Default Lords Of Xulima - Ultima VII & Wizardry had a baby

Hey all!

You might recognize me from my game sale thread I've had going in the "Blah blah blah" forum for awhile, but I'm posting to let you know about a new RPG coming out that I'll be working on (voice/audio). Since most of us are fans of older RPGs, I figured it would have some interest here:



"In Lords of Xulima, we have set out to make a challenging, turn-based RPG in the vein of the old school classics. We're making a game filled with character development, puzzles and often difficult strategic combat. Our goal is to create an immersive environment and a challenging combat system; how you choose to play it will be entirely up to you.

Lords of Xulima is an isometric, turn-based, single-player, 2D role-playing game. It is set on a mythical lost continent called Xulima, where the world makers lived in ancient times. The game features a vast, challenging world where you will lead Gaulen the Explorer and five of his companions on an epic journey filled with the struggles of Gods and Men."


Features
• More than 60 hours of true role playing experience.
• Create your party with up to six characters, choosing between 9 classes and more than 100 unique skills.
• Strategic turn-based combat in first person view: Battle more than 100 enemies with unique skills and powers.
• A vast continent to explore, with different environments and climates: You are free to go anywhere you want from the beginning of the game, but take care; the lands of Xulima are extremely dangerous.
• More than 30 dungeons: Castles, towers and temples await for you to discover their secrets.
• The depth and challenge of old school RPG classics, but with a modern, intuitive interface.
• Enchanting hand-drawn 2D graphics for landscapes and maps, mixed with 3D, pre-rendered models to bring smooth animations for characters and creatures.
• Available for Windows, MAC and Linux.
• Languages: English, Spanish.

More detailed information is available on the Indiegogo page with pitch video/trailer and everything.
---------------------------------------

Crowdfunding campaign just went live this morning and the pre-orders up to the $75 tier are surprisingly affordable compared to most projects (free shipping too). They also need to get on Steam Greenlight, so even if you don't pre-order but still like the project, hop over to the Greenlight page and give it a thumbs up!

Thanks for checking it out, and I'll be available periodically to answer any questions about the project.

Actually, if you would use words "Wizardry" and "Ultima" in your description, it would make it much more appealing for me.

But as you reached your goal anyway, I am glad for you!

(If it will please you, I have your game in "favorite" list of Greenlight since it's appeared there. Too bad it not got much deserved attention yet...)

This one looks something like I would give a try - the graphics are very detailed, while keeping the oldschool feel, and the gameplay is a unique and refreshing mix of two of the best series. I definitely think you guys deserve attention. Good to see that the project is funded.

Thanks! Yeah honestly everything I've seen of the game shows that they're doing it right. Insane attention to detail and overall game design.

They've figured out a way to do a Kickstarter (they're based in Spain so it's been a bit of a hassle) and they'll be launching the KS campaign after the weekend. Picking up right where they left off so the first goal is now a new questline & more portraits (which look awesome/professional and will be shown off on the KS campaign page).

Also just in case there's any confusion, making the Indiegogo goal was huge but they're still releasing the game regardless (Q1 2014). The crowdfunding campaigns are there to improve the game even moreso than what they've already got. Game's going to be great no matter what happens
