Drifters_Logo_1.png


Drifter is a Single Player Demo story based on Drifters MMORPG Storyline. This Game is being developed by an newly found Indie Game Team. Team Name isn't finalized but there are current going under Ultimate Eclipse studio logo and team is call Ultimate Eclipse Game Studio.

Description:
This game is a sub storyline of the original game called Drifters: Legend of Ultar. This Sub Storyline is about the first set of pirates who washed up on the shores of Avalon. In this epic adventure players will be in control of Eric, a Vice Captain aboard the Ecuador, which was a pirate ship belonging to the Burning Sun Pirates. This Tech Demo will take players on an epic adventure fighting Deadly creatures, and Bad-ass Bosses. The main point behind game is to show off some of our MMO ideas and environment features and such, giving players a taste of the MMORPG Vision or in other words this is our Tech Demo of MMORPG.

Tech Demo Title: Drifters: Prophecy and Destiny
As the three (3) Burning Sun Pirate ships are returning to their hid out from a successful treasure hunt they encounter an other pirate crew (3 Ships) who quickly engaged them into a brutal sea battle. As the six (6) ships battle it out on sea a dreadful supernatural storm developed right on top of them and as the surviving ships try to flee there are sucked into abnormal whirlpools caused by the storm.

Eric washes up onto the shores of this mysterious island, clueless as to where he was or where to go he heads in-land in hopes of meeting civilization or his pirate crew. As Eric venture into the forest of this unknown island he soon notices the island had this strange evil feeling reminding him of an evil place he had been to a few years ago, as he ventures deeper and deeper into the forest he comes across very strange yet beautiful plants which he has never seen before. After a while of wondering around he comes upon a old village ruins where he encounter a beautiful Native girl Named Elena who was in trouble, Eric quickly helps her then afterwards the girl ask Eric to accompany her to her village. Thus Eric makes is journey to the village that will change his life forever, as Eric get deeper and deeper into the forest sees more strange plants and creatures he then figure out he wasn’t dead, he isn’t dreaming nor was he in his world anymore but rather he was in a place he remembered from a story his sister use to tell him when he was a child, the story of “The God of The Eclipse“, “Eden” the Eclipse God who was sealed away deep into the Island of Avalon.

Finally Eric and Elena reached her Village, and Eric was brought to her Father the Chief of the village who then had a long conversation with Eric in which Eric then learns about the Prophecy of the Drifters. A prophecy Created by the Ancestors who gave their life to stop Ultar the Sub-God (Sub-God means mortal being with godlike powers) of Darkness from resurrecting Eden. The prophecy reads:

“Men Will come from beyond the seas, from beyond our world, they will wash up on the shores of our beaches. You must Name them Drifters, only they posses the power to either stop or free Ultar. The Drifters will determine the faith of both our world and there’s,”

The then tried to convince Eric that this was his destiny but Eric holding on to the reason for becoming a pirate refuses to help them but rather wants to get back to the seas to continue his search for this mystery person. Thus the Chief told Eric the only way he getting off island is if he helps them win a war, having no choice Eric was pulled in the most horrific, terrifyingly scary, ruthless, blood rushing war he has ever seen.

And thus the Prophecy of the Drifters Begins, or so we thought.

Gameplay

Game Type:
-> Fantasy
-> 3rd Person
-> Action Oriented Role Playing Game

WIth gameplay style like guild wars 2 or tera online. Players will be engaged in a fast pace action combat, wielding powerful spells or skills, in this world of magical creatures. Because the pirates are new to the world, the game will have around 10-15% pirate related stuff which washed up from the ship wreckage, within MMORPG the percentage goes up as the pirate are washing up faster and been on the island awhile longer.

What we will be building is an RPG TECH DEMO of the MMO game NOT the FULL MMO GAME ON THE UDK. It is possible but it’s a lot of stress no one has time to put up with.
