Altough the game is not completely funded, we will resume developement of the game. It may take a bit longer, but we will get Varas to you!


The Game

'Varas - Legend of a thief' is a classic RPG game for pc set to release in the winter of 2014*.
At launch, It will be available in two languages: English and Dutch.
For more languages, see the 'Further Funding'-section.


* Title and release date are subject to change at any time. If the release date were to change, so will the delivery date of the rewards.


The Story

Varas is a 7-year-old boy living a simple life in Hope Village, a remote farm village. While playing with his friends, he discovers a cave with a special power causing him to have the same nightmare over and over for 8 years.

8 years later, an organisation called "The Thieves" comes for him. They take him to the capital of Lagrah -Faeyth- where he is trained to become one of them.

On his 17th birthday, he is promoted to the rank of "Thief". This allows him to enter their private library where he discovers about his family's past with this organisation. And more importantly: the reason he was brought into the organisation and trained to become a thief.


All dungeons contain many surprises, such as treasures to collect, traps to outsmart, hidden paths to be found and beasties to defeat

Features

'Varas - Legend of a thief' has several unique features including:

  • No random battles: unlike several other games in the genre, all enemies are visible, you won't get jumped at out of nowhere.
  • 30+ locations including cities, forests, mountain landscapes, dungeons, ...
  • Over 10 hours of gaming PLUS additional sidequests worth over 10 more hours of gaming experience.
  • Unique and replayable puzzles and minigames.
  • A very unique disguising system: choose different disguises for each mission. Some may immediately ruin the mission, while others may give you a huge advantage.
  • Create your own story: your choices influence how the story unfolds.
  • The world changes over time: merchants travelling from town to town, but also plants, trees and animals evolve as time progresses.
  • As soon as we pass €1000 we will start working with professional musicians on making a unique soundtrack for the game.


Disguising is an important feature in "Varas - Legend of a thief"


Why are we using IndieGoGo?

Of course, there wouldn't be great games without proper resources.
That's why we need the public's help to raise funds for our game so we can make it as awesome as possible.
We will be spending the funds on i.a. graphical artists, musicians, scripters, software, hardware and eventually translators and voice actors.

Also, we will give 5% of our earnings to other IndieGoGo projects.

Further funding

When we reach more than our original funding goal, we will load you with even more grerat gifts, see below:

  • When we reach € 4800 we will add FRENCH to our list of languages.
  • When we reach € 5100 there will be semi-voice-acting on English. This means that every character will have a set of vocal expressions.
  • When we reach € 5400 we will add GERMAN to our list of languages.
  • When we reach € 5700 we will add SPANISH to our list of languages.
  • When we reach € 6000 we will add ITALIAN to our list of languages.
  • When we reach € 6300 there will be FULL voice acting in English.
  • When we reach € 6600 we will add PORTUGUESE to our list of languages.
  • When we reach € 7000 there will be semi-voice-acting for all supported languages (English version will have full voice-acting).

Are there any risks?

Not really.
The only risk is that our project will not be funded in time.
But even if it doesn't, we still have a full story, a wide array of quests and we are already busy developing the game. So we will probably still release the game, even though it will be less awesome if we do not reach or funding goal.

The only thing that may be risky is that we will not be able to send rewards to our backers if we do not reach our goal.
If that were to happen, all backers who pledged € 25 and up would receive a customised gaming disc. Everyone who pledged less than € 25 will receive their rewards as described to the right.


Thank you for backing us!

STAY TUNED FOR FURTHER UPDATES!

Of course, a good RPG is worth nothing without a nice, bustling city.
