Jullian Gollop, creator of X-COM, should be familiar to anyone that succumbed to sleepless nights spent defending the planet from sectoids. Now, Gollop is aiming to deliver another addictive experience by kickstarting his new project, Chaos Reborn.
Gollop’s latest is giving him a chance to return to his roots, as he breathes new life into Chaos: The Battle of Wizards. He explains that Chaos Reborn will be equal parts sequel and re-imagining, as they bring the game up-to-date with a high quality presentation. Furthermore, the slick design and visuals will complement the game’s core design focus, which is the magic combat system.
“It is all about summoning a host of weird and mythical creatures, moving and fighting with them, and using your wizard to attack, defend, buff and de-buff with large array of spells. It is highly tactical and fast paced.”
Players will develop their tactical skills as they ascend through the ranks after starting off as an apprentice wizard. The ultimate goal of progression is to become ranked as God, influencing the fate of the cosmos, and proving your mastery of Chaos Reborn.
Mastering your skills in combat will aid you on an epic single-player RPG experience called the “Realms of Chaos.” This mode forces players to start as a new wizard and explore the Realms of Chaos, defeating the Wizard Kings to build your power, and deliver it all in a procedurally generated package.
Chaos Reborn will be giving players new realms to explore every day and once you’re ranked Wizard King, you will be able to design your own realm for other players to conquer. Combine all of this with the hundreds of different types of equipment, and Gollop’s return to form already sounds promising.
