Drova – Forsaken Kin
Main IdeaDrova is heavily inspired by the first entries of the Gothic series as we grew up on them. It comes along with a grim dark pixel look and is set in a celtic setting. It offers a world where the player is just one among many.
Main DescriptionDrova is an open world RPG. It is based on Celtic mythology and it is set in a so called otherworld (Anderswelt) surrounded by fog. It is grim world and everyone tries to survive so it might happen that your believed best friend will cut your throat for a penny.
There are two factions in the game the player can join. One being the celtic inspired people who believe in nature and one being a culture inspired by romans who believe in human supremacy.
The game itself is very traditional. It doesn't come along with questmarkers or a minimap. Everything centers around natural world building and environmental storytelling. It offers a dynamic world and the players actions will change the world over time. On top of that there is a complex combat system with multiple weapon classes and magic. While it is skill based, stats are more important in the end - quite like in the old RPGs as well.
