Welcome to the Indiegogo funding page for Stone Rage. We have reached a point where the alpha phase of Stone Rage is in sight. It has been a long road and it is thanks to the support and ideas from fans like you that we have continued to push forward and make our dream for Stone Rage a reality. We will begin alpha play-testing and bug fixing very soon which will be a huge milestone for the project. Now, while we are getting closer to the alpha phase we need one more push to get us even further. There is still plenty left to accomplish and with the money we make here we will be able to step up our production and get our game into the player’s hands sooner. We truly appreciate your support and thank you all endlessly for your contributions that we receive here. Together we can bring Stone Rage to the foreground of the gaming world and make it the exciting, bone crushing, multiplayer experience it was always meant to be.

Stone Rage™ is a Free-To-Play online third person multiplayer action game set within the Pleistocene and Eocene eras, featuring prehistoric tribalism, prehistoric landscapes and prehistoric animals. Players will take control of a single character of either a human class, neanderthal tribe or animal genus and wreak havoc in either survival, team objective or deathmatch game types. As players win games and progress through achievements, options in weapon layout, upgrades and personalized character customization will be unlock, giving a large array of choices to those who do not wish to completely conform to a single archetype.
Every character has a set of unique traits and abilities, as well as unlockables to modify their effects and tactical usage, ensuring that no two games will play the same, and no one player is by default more or less dangerous than another. Situation and opportunity play as much a part in winning a game as how well players use their character skills and environment to their advantage. Since tribal skirmishes and hunts take place across a wide stretch of land, players will encounter sprawling forests with prowling smilodon, vast plains with marching mammoth herds and gastornis scavenging the remains left behind by the prey of dire wolves!
Animal classes: One of the most boasted qualities about Stone Rage is its animal classes. Stone Rage offers a wide array of animals with different tactics, and abilities that will keep players gaming for days. We have put strenuous effort into picking out the best classes possible to keep players entertained. Our classes include the Entelodont for stealth, the Woolly Rhinocerous for defense, the Gastornis as a scout class, a Cave Bear for warrior class, Saber Tooth Tiger for the hunter class, and finally the Mammoth as the heavy. We also provide support animals for each animal class, which are playable as well.
Human/Neanderthal classes: Stone Rage contains two different groups: the Humans and the Neanderthals. Each group has its own set of six different playable classes. There’s the warrior, the guard, the archer, the hunter, the shaman, and the ubermensch. Each class performs an important role on the battlefield and will be vital in ensuring victory for either the Humans or the Neanderthals.

Stone Rage is looking to meet the goal of 60k (55k with ig fee). With this money we will be able to pay our hard working developers for all of their time and dedication for the very first time. We will also be putting this money towards the long list of expenses that come with releasing a game, such as: server and website costs, upkeep, advertisement, and taxes/misc. fees. Reaching our goal of 60k will allow us to get Stone Rage up and running sooner and the further we go beyond that goal, the more we will be able to put towards our development team and advertisements and help Stone Rage to reach even more gamers looking for a gaming experience unlike any other.
Stone Rage is a game unlike any other. Everything that is going into this game has been discussed and debated over by the entire team to ensure that Stone Rage will be the most unique and well-rounded game on the market. The support given from fans and contributors helps us to further improve the already impeccable structure of a game that is sure to be one of the most talked about experiences to come out of the indie scene in years.
The Stone Rage team is made up of young, hard-working developers that are looking to leave their mark on the ever expanding gaming world. Everyone on the team donates what free-time they have to helping Stone Rage move along at a quick pace, whilst also ensuring that no detail is overlooked. It can be tough for the developers to work around school, work, and family to bring a game of such magnitude together. But your contributions can help us to keep pushing. Most of the funding will be given to this hard working team and will help them to recuperate the many hours put into making Stone Rage a truly amazing experience.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our goals as a team and the vision we have for Stone Rage. While your donations help us greatly, it is your support and kind words that keep us going and working hard. We want all who play this game to truly enjoy the experience, and become entrenched in the world that we have dedicated so much time to create. Our passion is making video games that will be remembered years from now and we firmly believe that Stone Rage will be one of those games that people are talking about and playing for decades to come.
