WE GOT GREENLIGHT!!!

Dark Drive is a classic side-scrolling Action-RPG game that was made in retro style to let player enjoy the familiarness and was combined with the action style of newer game generation for the best balance.

Dark Drive was inspired by Metroid, Castlevania: Symphony of the night and Devil May Cry. This game, Dark Drive, will make player explore the story scenario and fight actively through it with the main character. We will do our best to make Dark Drive become a memorable game.

We had been trying to create the concept of Dark Drive for a very long time while we were having full-time jobs, and then after we had all the conclusions, we decided that this game has potential and agreed to start the production process. In order to develop Dark Drive, the Rambutan team assessed that we would have to put all effort and concentrate all power on it.  We quit our jobs to make this project become true. This project will take one year and we will require funds for the followings:

- Software: Purchases of licensed software for developers.
- Sound Designer: For better sound quality, we have to hire a Sound Designer to work with us.

We choose IndieGogo because we would like everyone to take a look at our project and be the judge of whether "Dark Drive" should be created or not, and this is our main objective:

"We will create enjoyable game which will make our players feel that it is totally worth paying for."


"The Horizon... 
It is a gigantic fort in the space, 
built as a monumental symbol of power of the mankind in the beginning of the 3rd Millennium 
and equipped with assault machines and artificial intelligence able of developing weapons on their own."

After the construction was completed and before its first debut, The Horizon was taken over and completely controlled by a Union’s agent from R.A.A. (Risk Against Agent) unit, the agent No.1 whose codename is Nate.

The pursue of Nate and The Horizon is difficult due to the fort’s special ability to space jump and its omnipotent camouflage system. The Union will have to use extreme measures in order to recapture The Horizon.

They will do it, even if The Horizon may suffer some damages.

Besides seizing The Horizon, Nate also took a hostage, who is the daughter of R.A.A. agent No.21, codename Spik. Nate secretly contacted Spik and, without any explanation, made a negotiation with Spik which requires him to travel to The Horizon.

Therefore, Spik decided to travel to The Horizon to rescue his daughter, and to find out the reason behind Nate’s action.

  • Weapon

There are two types of weapons in this game, Melee Weapon and Ranged Weapon. Player can match their weapons of choice and can freely change weapons. 

  • Ranged Weapon 

Ranged weapon can attack an enemy from further distance.

   

  • Melee Weapon Combo

Melee weapon can make combo freely.

   

  • Drive System

Drive System is a special attack that has limited usage from Melee Weapon.

   

  • Upgrade

Melee weapon, Ranged weapon, Drive system and Combo will eventually get their own upgrades through the story progress of the game, for the fun of finding out "What's the next upgrade will we get?" 

  • Various Scenario

In the adventure of finding the truth in "The Horizon," you'll be faced with many scenarios that have different settings and put you in various situations. Gameplay will vary and become more challenging.

  • EPIC Boss Fight!!



Spik : R.A.A. No. 21

Age : 30

"Spik is a careful and strategic person. However, he is likely to act by his own decision more than the organization’s rules. He has no mercy for anything vicious." 

Mary : Spik's daughter

Age : 9

"Mary is an adopted child of Spik, yet he rarely has time for her. Her real father is Demitry, a mafia godfather who was assassinated by Spik."

Nate : R.A.A. No. 1

Age : ??

"Nate’s history is unknown. He is a genius with well-rounded skills who became the first R.A.A. agent. No one has any idea of what made him seize and take over The Horizon."


We are determined to accomplish the project “Dark Drive” and have set Stretch Goal in order to keep improving the quality of the game. When the fund allowance reaches specific points, we will do as follows;

With our long years of working in the game industry, this is the first big project we have ever started on our own. We have begun the project since 3 months ago and now is the time to drop everything else to fully concentrate on Dark Drive.

Every creative project must go through various obstacles. We often discuss and debate in order to brainstorm better ideas to apply to our work. In the end, we will achieve our goal.
