Forsaken Fortress is a special RPG game in which you build your base, defences and assemble your team against monsters attacks in a post apocalyptic world. In this game you must explore the wastelands for material you can use to upgrade your base, build turrets, walls and parts of base like clinic to heal your squad or training rooms and assemble your team from variety of professions – you will also need to keep their moral high.
This game uses the Unity4 game engine so a GNU/Linux client will be made.
What is Forsaken Fortress?
Unlike many other existing post-apocalypstic RPG, Forsaken Fortress emphasize on base management, defense, team management and resource collection. In the game you need to build and defend your base from waves of hostiles and to use the break time to explore the surrounding environment for supplies and to work on missions. In order to survive in this dangerous world, you need to assemble and maintain a specialized team that is made up of unique and individual characters. You need to utilize their professional skills in order to achieve optimized team functionality. The game also incorporates many simulation-derived elements, such as building entertainment for the team to maintain morale or upgrading accommodation for the team so they can rest well.
While an RPG at heart, Forsaken Fortress draws influences from variety of sources and all that elements work together to provide a cohesive and engaging gaming experience.
Base Defense and Management
Your base will be assaulted by a range of hostile forces, ranging from rival squads to the twisted denizens of Earth’s surface. Position your forces, upgrade your weaponry, and maintain the perimeter to ensure survival during prolonged sieges!
Resource Collection and Story Based Missions
While your base is not under attack, your squad will need to collect resources and work on missions in the surrounding environment. The most coveted prizes will not be left unguarded, and you may have to fight tooth-and-nail to acquire what you need. Balance survival with completing the mission — an improperly planned all-in strategy could easily lead to disaster!
Rich Character Development and Interaction
You squad is comprised of unique characters.Each character has unique personalities and traits. These traits can be positive - such as the Cat Eye (better performance at night) - or negative – such as Cowardice (a propensity to flee from battle). Traits can be dynamically developed throughout the game. For instance, if you frequently send one person into bloody combat, he or she might develop a trait of Aggressive (may ignore orders during a fierce combat). You can interact with different characters to manipulate their attitude towards you. For instance bribing will increase the relationship temporarily, while developing friendship will increase the relationship in a long term.
Outfit and balance your expedition teams to suit the needs of the mission, and assign squad members within the base to where they will be needed most – fences will need repair, bunkers will need gunners, the injured will need healing, and supplies must be distributed. Balance labor and relief to maximum squad members’ morale.
Your team will respond to working and leisure conditions as a real team would. Match team members for harmony and effectiveness, determine performance rewards, and construct base facilities to maintain morale.
Squad-based realtime combat system brings you maximum tension and a brutal combat experience. With enemies that are ten times stronger and a thousand times more vicious than humans, the only way to survive is to rely on technology and tactics. If you don’t act quickly and intelligently, you will be overwhelmed. Control your character while issuing orders to your comrades. Cooperation between different squad members is a critical part of achieving success!

Who is Photon Productions and why support Forsaken Fortress?
We are an indie studio with a goal of bringing some new experience to the futuristic RPG genre. What you see here was put together by a small team comprised of two artists and two programmers in a small underground bunker near new york. We have been working part-time on this project for nearly half a year. Making a RPG game like this is difficult. During this half year, we have experienced many difficulties such as, time shortage, losing manpower, etc. And we realized that it is almost impossible to achieve what we promised without turning part-time staff into full-time. Kickstarter is our best chance of getting funded. And in fact, the Kickstarter’s competitive mechanic is making us more productive and dedicated. We eager to bring you the best that can be offered!
Your funding will be going towards the acquisition of new staff members, pay for software licenses, and to maintain the employment of current team members.
With your help, we will make this game the best it can possibly be! Thank you for your time and your contributions!
