Welcome !


I am very pleased to welcome you on the official crowdfunding page for the Gates Of a Ruined Empire project! Thanks to the Patrons like you I can develop the G.O.R.E. project as a truly independent creator. Without the need to satisfy the publisher's whims, We are able to create a complex game that puts the game experience above monetization.

By supporting me, you have the opportunity to be a witness of the whole process of creating the game.
We started together from scratch, and thanks to your support the project is growing faster and faster.
If you are not my patron yet, I cordially invite you to join us.
If you care about playing games that do not treat the player like an idiot, add something to the pot.
Together, we are able to collect the budget necessary to create an extraordinary game.
Join us and let's make this game together.

  • If you are not familiar with Gates Of a Ruined Empire, I invite you to visit our website, where you will learn more about the game itself. The game is quite complex, so describing all aspects of it on the Patreon website would create a huge wall of text. If you want to be up to date with news, subscribe to us on Twitter
  • If you want to know for what purpose we are currently collecting money, go to the goals section on this page (left page on PC / Top on a mobile device).

A brief description of what Gates Of a Ruined Empire is:

  • G.O.R.E. is a classic RTS, in the sense of old Warcraft and Starcraft gameplay, which means you have control over each unit individually. The game, however, puts the main focus on development strategies instead of the arcade approach
  • Branching modification of weaponry of units during the game, forcing the player to adapt the strategy to the prevailing conditions.
  • A complex combat system referring to RPG systems
  • Advanced graphics based on the Unreal Engine 4 engine, will make you feel like you personally took part in the battle.
  • Anti-rushing mechanics that make sure G.O.R.E. is a strategy and not an arcade like.
  • Instead of "Stone Scissors Paper" you have "Stone Scissors Paper Lizard Spock". Thanks to the fact that the unit has slightly more parameters than attack and defense.
  • A deep single player campaign aimed for an adult player.
  • Complex game world, having its own history and cultural determinants.



What is it all about?

G.O.R.E. is a game designed for adult community who appreciate intellectual entertainment.

My basic goal is to create a game that will have a low entry threshold, but due to the complexity of the mechanics contained in it, achieving the championship will require time and work on your skills.

I want to allow players to modify and adapt their approach to the game, so that on the multiplayer battlefield always has a variety of tactics and behaviors.

META is my biggest enemy. When I was designing G.O.R.E. mechanics, I did my best to avoid the possibility of working out the one and only meta behavior pattern.

My goal is to offer players the opportunity to constantly experiment in the field of equipment and behavior patterns that he adopts during the battle.

I do not want to allow a situation in which everyone will repeat the pattern of behavior, learned from the movie on youtube.

Gameplay in G.O.R.E. is to be your work and ideas first and foremost. Innovation will be promoted in the first place.

I do not expect everyone to love my game.
I create it for a specific group of people who value the opportunity to develop their strategic skills in a creative environment.
Personally, I miss games that posed a challenge to the player.
G.O.R.E. is not a game designed to make everyone a champion in it.
However, it will give you the chance to become master on fair terms.


About Dark Oath:

My name is Matt and, It all started with my rather risky decision, about abandoning my previous work as a programmer and trying to use my skills to fulfill my childhood dreams. Dreams about creating computer games...

Bored with games offered on the market, I decided to present to the world my vision of a complex real-time strategy, in which a multitude of possible approaches to the game, will allow players to have long-lasting fun, which will always offer something new.



Over the years, I thought about creating this game. I created a complex world in which the action will take place, I designed the mechanics of the game so that they are balanced and give the players as much space as possible for their own creativity, while maintaining the consistency of the universe.

The time has come to act. Thanks to my many years of experience as a programmer, I know that my goal is achievable and I have already started to implement it. And thanks to this website YOU can support my work and help me to carry out my project more efficiently.
Join me and my Patrons, to create together the best RTS game ever created.



Thanks to Your support, Dark Oath Games are growing, gaining the opportunity to cooperate with the best specialists. Together, we create a development studio that will meet any challenge


Why Patreon?

As I wrote at the beginning I am a programmer. I have a lot of experience in designing and creating high-end software. I can design and write code 24 hours a day. All I need is coffee and cigarettes.
To create the game at a high level is also required to have a right software. The basic software licenses for creating the visual layer cost over $ 1,000 dollars a month. Thanks to this page you have the chance to help me pay bills so that I can fully focus on my work and project development.



I am also aware that I am not an expert in every field. That is why I spend part of the funds on remuneration for specialists cooperating with me. I want the quality of the final game to be at the highest level, which is why I also care about work with people who have the necessary skills to meet the challenges of the project.

The costs are quite large, but thanks to the community we can easily meet them. Thanks to this, we gain the chance to create a game that is designed in every aspect to ensure the best possible gameplay experience.




How do I want to fund this game?

Patreon is the first phase of financing this project. How quickly I prepare a playable demo of the game depends on how much money we collect here. Then I will be able to fully present to the world what the uniqueness of my project is all about. I also want to recruit the right people to the Dark Oath Games during this period, in order to be sure in the future that they are able to meet their tasks.
The final stage of the funding of this project will be a Kickstarter campaign. Funds will be used to refine and expand the material that we will have after the end of the Patreon.



What will you get out of it?

As I have already mentioned, the campaign on the Patreon is the first and most difficult stage of project fundraising. My goal is to create the base structure of the development studio and to prepare a playable demo in full quality. Therefore, the Patrons will receive the most profits from the support for the project. A copy of the finished game is just one of the prizes. My goal is to provide G.O.R.E. with a balanced multiplayer service with a ranking system and a polished look. Therefore, the Patrons will also receive unique 3D avatars for multiplayer games, thanks to which the whole game community will know that it is dealing with the person who provided G.O.R.E. with key support. You will also get access to the decision process regarding the details of the graphic design of the game, and the ability to suggest gameplay elements. Moreover, each of the Patrons gains access to materials showing the progress of work on the game. If you are curious how a game is created from scratch, these materials can be very interesting for you.



The number of prizes for patrons will increase along with the progress in financing the project. I do not want to promise you anything I cannot deliver, but I am convinced that together we will achieve the goal and create the best RTS game what the earth has seen!
And you'll be part of it!



It's time to embark on a epic journey!

I hope that I interested You enough to join my Patrons.
Become a part of it and join the group of my patrons. We have a long and satisfying road ahead.
When we do this, we will be proud of ourselves.
See you in the world of G.O.R.E.!
Matt
