Our Goal
From day one we set out to develop an exciting and compelling RPG with a vast story and interesting characters. The project that emerged became a modern RPG that evokes nostalgia, but also improves on many of the pitfalls of classic RPGs that we remember so fondly.

Modern technology has allowed us to design and develop a beautiful and vast 3D world, with stunning towns, dungeons, depth of field and verticality that adds to the game's atmosphere. The 360 degree camera allows the player to fully explore the 3D environment, rotating and zooming to find hidden paths or just to get a better look at the world.


The Story
'When men turn to an ancient darkness to enslave the world, the sun will bless the chosen four with the power of fallen gods'

Two hundred years ago a great war waged between man and magic. This conflict created giant fissures in the earth's surface, which began to spew a strange mist that conjured terrible monsters. Today, the people of Varos fear magic and those who possess the power to wield it.

Step into a world rich with history and lore
As you travel through Varos, you'll learn about the history of the world and its inhabitants. In particular, you'll hear about the ancient war, how it almost destroyed Varos, how it caused continents to be split into islands and how it left scar-like rifts along the planet's terrain.


The Characters
Varos is a world ample with diversity and well-developed races. It was important during the writing process to explore different kinds of beings, including the beings living in Varos. You'll discover an interesting mix of races as you play, each one with its own variety of lifestyles, beliefs, and outlooks on life.


Exploring Varos
We've designed the world of Varos to be both vast and beautiful. We really want the player to make the most of the camera design, rotating and zooming to get a better look at the world and environments as they travel and explore. We will also be using this opportunity to hide secret areas, loot and Easter eggs in Sol Ni Koro.
No forced backtracking!
We're avoiding filler, so there will be be no forced backtracking through areas the player has previously visited. Sure, you can backtrack if you want to search for secret areas, loot or just power level your party. But you absolutely shouldn't have to.


The Combat System
The combat system in Sol Ni Koro has been designed to be at its core fast paced and streamlined, but also fun and exciting!

Unique Character Skills
Each playable character in Sol Ni Koro has a completely unique skill set. Characters will gain new skills in two ways:
1. Levelling up
2. Equipping 'Scrolls'
Each character and his or her skill set will prove useful in different battle situations. For example, Nova's skill set 'Magic Arts' is focused around offensive magic, while Lalune's skill set 'Sword Arts' leans towards physical/elemental attacks and de-buffing the enemy.

Scrolls
'Ancient parchments left behind for those that have been blessed by the Sun'

When equipped to a character a scroll will grant a visible stat boost. But what's particularly interesting about scrolls is that they will grant an invisible bonus too. Some scrolls will grant the character a special ability, skill/spell or secret stat boost as well. Scrolls will also behave differently when equipped by different characters, it's all about experimenting!
