Punta Del Este, Uruguay -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/10/2014 -- Fans of video games, consider yourselves warned: when the Gods go into battle against each other, mortals must choose sides. But choosing the winning side when cosmic war erupts can be a lethal undertaking for mere humans. That’s the premise of Tantra Rumble, an action, Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA), and TCG game combined into a single gaming experience by GameOlic SRL, a team of ten indie developers using Unreal Engine 4. This free-to-play multiplayer online action PVP/PVE game gives gamers complete control over eight characters who are involved in battle arenas with strategy-based team maps.
Players who enter the realm of Tantra Rumble are engulfed in a titanic conflict because of the fracturing of the Trimurti which formerly sealed the alliance among Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma. With the breaking of the Trimurti comes the release of the Maras, demonic entities who emerge from the shadows to claim the lands which the mortals know as their own. This battle for divine supremacy embroils mortals into the war where they are forced to choose sides. The only hope for the outmatched humans comes from eight mortals, each powerfully armed with unique abilities, who will be the judges charged with determining which God is the supreme deity.
Tantra Rumble can be played solo, with friends, or with a clan, thanks to the game’s balanced matchmaking system. Community action is a key feature of a successful online game, and that’s one of the reasons that the GameOlic team opted for a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to help them expand their limited funds. If crowdfunding can raise $141,000 by December 3, the company can focus on finalizing development of the game. Their developers are die-hard, dedicated gamers who have been working on Tantra Rumble for 12 hours a day for the past six months, but progress will be delayed unless extra funding can pay necessary costs that will deliver a high-quality game.
GameOlic is built upon a solid foundation in information systems management and security. Five friends who were committed to the riveting world of video games and related applications got together in 2010; they began financing themselves by making websites, payment solutions, server security, and anti-cheat protection for games. Two additional recruits were added, and then they made the mobile games Garden Combat, Fatal Fall, and FlyCal, which are available for IOS Android, and Windows Phone. Throughout the growth of their company, they never lost sight of their dream to create multiplayer free-to-play games for PCs and consoles. In February, 2014, they began work on Tantra Rumble. Using Unity Engine, they made significant progress on programming, features, design, and game play. When EPIC Games launched Unreal Engine 4 with its new royalty system, GameOlic’s team jumped at the chance to develop on what they regard as an amazing engine, even though it meant learning the functionality of an engine from the starting point. The decision paid off, bringing great progress in development.
The eight mortal heroes whose task is to judge the Gods are: Banar, of the King Cobra tribe, bearers of the power to wreak massive damage; Satya, one of the strong chimeras, who once served under a cursed entity; Abikara, from the tribe of heavenly, divine beings, controllers of the natural elements; Druka, belonging to a warmongering tribe known for its pride, deceit, and arrogance; Karya, an exiled asura who can readily befriend mortals or turn into an implacable foe; Samabat, from a tribe of summoners with the power to invoke and control divine monsters; Vidya, whose tribe possesses the ability to heal and resurrect the dead; and Nakayuda, of the Earth’s caretakers, with martial arts skills.
Players of Tantra Rumble will be able to communicate among one another and build a congenial environment with features that include guilds, in-game voice communication, and chat rooms where players can discuss the game. Players will also be able to post their accomplishments on their walls, record a video, and automatically upload to their channel or begin a live stream directly from the game, thanks to Tantra Rumble’s full integration with Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch.
The development team understands the challenges and risks of a project like this, but they also have the experience and zeal to create an engaging video game that will create a community that is part of the extended family of GameOlic. Gamers, too, are engaged in battles for supremacy, but for them, the price is fun.
