## Gameplay Video Explanation + Kickstarter Announcement!

We are proud to announce that our kickstarter is planned for the 13th of May! Please spread the word around you!

We also released a new video!
It explains two basic gameplay mechanics of Umbra: The first one is the Resource Opposition system is design to balance the freedom of character development you have. The second one is the Elemental Effect Interaction, managing the effectiveness of Fire, Lightning, Water and Ice according to the environment and skills combos.

Hi Gobonzo,
What exactly do you mean by “when we contribute” ?
On the Kickstarter page, there are various rewards allowing you to acces alpha, beta or prototype of the game, this is the way people will be able to acces the alpha/beta release 🙂

Cheers,
Daniel

checking Kickstarter again and i still don’t see any mention of early test builds, or what level of funding will provide access to them, or when they will start.

Ah ok, let me explain :

The earliest version we will release is the GDC 2015 prototype: It will not be on Steam, and it will not have update. It will simply allow people to have an early look of what we build for the GDC 2015. This is the $40 rewards “WIZARD” The real early access will start around November 2015, using Early Access, will be technical oriented and will provide weekly updates. This is the$35 reward “SORCERER”

The Beta of the game, close to the actual real game, will be release later, but I cannot tell when at the moment. This is the \$25 reward “APPRENTICE”

Hope it helps 🙂
