LightBulb Crew have revealed more information about their in-development MOBA game, which is currently seeking funds through KickStarter, and the persistent universe in which it is set.
The Games of Glory are the gladiator games of the Synarchy, the intergalactic empire controlled by the seemingly all-powerful Synarch. The Synarch imposes peace over all in his dominion, and protects them from the Exoi. The Games of Glory serve as an outlet for citizens to blow off steam as well as a medium to resolve large-scale disputes. The winners gain fame and money, as well as political influence.
Embodying one of the powerful Clones, the player will impact this eternal battle for power with each victory or loss of a Clone impacting their faction’s influence. Following those merciless fights, each player will raise his notoriety in the eyes of the Synarchy’s population. The more recognised the player, the more impactful and important are their actions. Synarchy’s future is in the palm of their hands and no one could presently forecast the consequences that it may have in the medium or long term.
These dynamic evolutions in the script will directly shape the game’s content. Announcements of new factions, introduction of new clones from a victorious faction, new arms and equipment, or even game mode modifications will be direct consequences of player’s actions.
“From the beginning of this project we wanted to give our community a central role, even more regarding the event that will change the Synarchy forever. For us it is incredibly exciting, even we do not know what will happen in Games of Glory.” comments Anders Larsson, CEO of LightBulb Crew “We also believe this will increase the enjoyment for those who are not competitive players but also interested by the game’s story.”
As a complement of the power games system, players will be able to unveil the secrets of the Synarchy through solo or club quests, in direct link with the different factions and Clones. Does the Synarchy aim to invade new systems? What are the origins and the secrets behind each Clone? Which dark plots are threatening the power in place? So many questions that will find their answers through these exciting quests.
For more details about the game, along with information for potential backers, head over to the KickStarter page. Games of Glory is also looking for votes on Steam Greenlight.
