    [​IMG]Inner Void Interactive has news the Kickstarter for their RPG inspired by Middle Eastern and Asian cultures is now live. Here is the usual video, and some details.


    Zaharia is an RPG with an oriental and middle eastern flavored setting, inspired by Middle East cultures charm and made with care to be original but, at the same time, plausible and convincing. The player will be able to create his own character and use him freely, writing his own story in the world of Zaharia without neither compromises nor constraints.

    While exploring the game's world, the player will discover its centuries-old history, and will come in contact with a world radically different from the ones inspired to European Middle-Age.

    Despite the freedom given to the player, the game will have a strong narrative part, and any single character and quest will be made with great care to be settled into a complex, evolving and living world.

    Then the player will create his/her own character and live uncountable adventures across the world of Zaharia, without forgoing his/her conceptual freedom to make any kind of choices, both inside and outside dialogues. All choices will have a more or less effective impact that will make the game evolve consequently.
    • Isometric 3D graphic;
    • Turn-based battles based on our original rules' system;
    • Narrative and Interpretative non-linearity, allowing the player not only to choose which quest to follow, but also to make choices and solve problems in many different ways;
    • A free-roaming world, Fallout style;
    • A large number of skills and stats to manage, in order to customize your own virtual alter-ego in every small detail;
    • An original setting created from scratch, inspired to late medieval Persia and Arabia, and completely different from the classic fantasy settings;
    • Development of mature themes: slavery, sexuality, racism, theology, philosophy, morality, politics and so on;
    • Five main factions to choose from, each of them deeply characterized and different from the others;
    • Innovative magic system, making mages something more than portable siege weapons
    Now after reading all that that if you're still not interested, the developers have a early prototype for everyone to try. Not many games do, so this is a nice surprise.

    Zaharia prototype
    On the occasion of Kickstarter, we developed a little prototype with some alpha features. The prototype has a stand alone story with different endings, according to the choices of the player. This prototype is not representative of the final product, click here to discover how it will evolve during the development.

    Note that Mac and Linux prototypes may be unstable, due to the lack of testers, but we'll work during the Kickstarter campaign in order to fix their problems.​
