Revival Overview

Revival is an upcoming Lovecraftian horror MMORPG set in a persistent universe. Rather than hot-bar combat Revival features a system akin to first-person fighting, where precision positioning, aiming, and reaction time secure victory. Players can carve out their own corner of the game's world through player housing; houses are persistent elements in the game world, leading to limited real estate spots, and ranges from small village huts to ornate mansions. An in-depth crafting system requires players to actively participate, by examining materials for quality (such as checking for blights and parasites) and actively crafting using required tools. As players interact with the world, and each other, the world grows—organically evolving in response to player deeds, and influencing subsequent events, such city expansion or the demise of a cult. To help facilitate the game's narrative GM's will play the role of heroes, villains, monsters, and gods, shaping Revival's story and directly interacting with players.

Revival Key Features:

  • Dynamic Quests - active GM's will present content in reaction to player choices, leading to unpredictable dynamic events.
  • Cross-platform - players will be able to access the game's world to some degree from mobile devices and tablets.
  • Skill-based Combat - secure victory by managing positioning, aiming, and reaction time.
  • Active Crafting - scrutinize materials and combine them by actively using tools, such as crushing, instilling, and infusing in real-time.
  • Living World - every action players take has a direct consequence on events unfolding in the game world.
