In Obliita, you command the most powerful gods, legends and monsters from world mythology in the battle for humanity, as you wage war against friends and foes alike. Use your minions unique elemental abilities to transform the terrain of the battlefield to suit your personal style and strategy. With their own elemental strengths and weaknesses, each terrain type can be used unleash epic levels of destruction upon your opponents.
This is the world of Oblitia. I had the honor of meeting 2 of the guys of the team at the Wizard World con in Richmond. When I first walked over I was curious. The name wasn’t one I knew or familiar with. The moment I walked up the first thing I noticed was the cards. They looked like a cross between trading card games and those cards they give out with codes on it for games. After I looked around for maybe 20 seconds is when I met 2 of the small team of developers. This became a meeting that had a great impact on me, as I’m just a casual gamer but I could see how this could become a huge game to everyone.
The game consists of over 300 creatures that you develop and cultivate. In the process they gain abilities that can effect the environment, weather, and terrain. Giving the potential for numerous variations on how the creatures can appear and react. Now like many that are reading I first thought of Pokemon. But you would be so wrong! The game is built to take the idea of an RPG, role playing game, but expand it in ways that other developers have never thought of, like quest battles and taking your online world to the next level. Imagine you and a friend talking about how you both have Agni, Vedic Fire God (one of the creatures from the game), you start talking about the features and attributes of your character. What you will start to notice is that your characters are nowhere near the same. The game allows for a true customization of your characters bringing you into a true experience of the game. After meeting and learning about the game from these guys I became super excited. I’ve always loved RPGs. From the simple games like Pokemon to games like Zelda and Final Fantasy. I feel this game will be right up there.
The game is still in the middle of finishing being developed. Check out the links that are provided and keep looking at the site for more details. Also with the launch of the podcast look out for even more news. The team behind Oblitia is also launching a Kickstarter that I’ll be giving more details on. This is a game that I can see a huge market for and I bet from seeing art and checking out the trailer you do too.
