Players will team up with 2 friends, find a great combo of characters, skills and weapons and beat endless procedurally generated dungeons to acquire new items and weapons, level up weapons and characters to solve the mysteries of the world of Sipheria.
Battle Arena Mode
With planned gameplay mode for 3v3 Team DeathMatch, Capture the Flag, Domination etc that reinforce and build a deep end-game progression loop with the Dungeon mode.
Cross Platform Development
With the goal of reaching millions of players with our games, we plan to develop on Unity, enabling cross platform play for all our players, starting with PC with our dedicated game client and progressively release on Mobile. (Consoles TBD)
