Rebel Camp Games started out with me as solo developer who made ARPG Emberheart and released survival game Forests of Augusta. Now we are a core team of 2 people working on a prototype for a pirate themed ARPG called Oceans Dark: Curse of Mithra. We have made a lot of progress in just 3 weeks time. We aim to have a prototype done in 2 months, where we will go to possible investors/publishers with. I have rich family members who’ve shown interest in funding the project. And then there’s other funding options like kickstarter, epic dev grant, Belgian Game Fund Organization, etc…

Here’s a gameplay video of the first testversion of the Vertical Slice that was done in just 3 weeks time with a core team of 2 people!!
