What features make Skara unique?
The following represents the vision behind Skara. Take into account that these features may NOT be in the game yet. See the next section for more information about the game’s ‘Development Roadmap.’
AWESOME GRAPHICS: Just because an Indie Studio is making the game doesn't mean it has to sacrifice on quality. We have cut no corners in graphics or design. Skara will be one of the first video games released with Unreal Engine 4, and it won’t be difficult to see how wonderful this engine is, even when working with a small team.
SKILL-BASED GAMEPLAY: Skara is about skill, timing, accuracy and practice. As in any Versus game, knowing your combos and the best moment to use them is crucial for survival in the arenas. Dodge, counter-attack and execute your enemies with spectacular fatalities. But watch your back, you could be surrounded! The best players and teams will be honored as the Heroes of Skara.
5 RACES: Choose one of Skara's "races," each with a unique fighting style and history. Players will get to choose how their character looks, from the armor design to the fighting style, and their actions on the battlefield will determine the future of their people.
GAME MODES: There's not always time to play for hours on end. Players can open Skara for a five minute skirmish or for several hour long faction battles. Game Modes will include Free-for-all, Team Deathmatch, Siege, Kill the King, Dominion or Capture the Flag.
ARENAS: Skara is comprised of arenas, which players enter to fight. These arenas differ widely in look and feel, from lava pits to forests to towns to soaring mountainous regions. Some game modes allow for factions to fight to dominate the arenas as territory. This will be charted on our interactive map.
FATALITIES: Customize the way enemies are dispatched with spectacular fatalities, following the venerable tradition seen in many versus games.
FACTIONS: Ruling Skara will require teamwork. Players from a similar "race" will band together to fight with other groups in hopes of dominating the world. Members of the same faction can perform special combined attacks called Team Actions. The better coordinated the team, the more chances they will have of winning a battle.
Since Skara is far from finished, it is important for potential players to see our schedule for improvement. This carefully thought through and unlikely to change, nevertheless we reserve the right to alter it from time to time.
The final version of Skara (July 2015) will consist on:
The class and battle mechanics in this game are very engaging. There's a lot of diversity in potential play-styles and a lot of complexity, but it's accessible enough for first time players. The game looks really nice as well, and it's accompanied by a pretty good soundtrack. For a game in its pre-alpha state, there's a lot to like, and an insane amount they can still go with it.
Skara is a competitive hack and slash which features fun gameplay, pretty good graphics considering the game is still in a pre-alpha state, and the sound effects are great. However, there are not many people playing it right now, which can lead to some repetitive matches against bots, and there are some framedrops and lag issues. I have seen the game's developers do pay attention to its community and are hard working, so hopefully most of its issues will be fixed by the final release. I recommend getting the game if you see it on sale to support the developers if you like what you see in most pictures.
This is a pretty fun game for those who enjoy action and adventure games. The core elements of the game play work very well and each individual aspect of the game play is well polished and designed effectively. The graphics in the game are remarkably well done and the animations are convincing and bring the game world to life. The sound design is very good too, the music adds a new dimension to the world. I would highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys action orientated adventure games. The graphics and sound design are top notch and the game play is very good too!
