It is a free-roam game where users will be able to interact with NPCs to unlock hidden terrain and talk amongst fellow players.

F.A.Q. (Click)






As a member, you can submit to folder Creator Editor Screenshots, this is for all of your canine creator/feline editor demo screenshots to be shown off. The rest is for the team only. We'll show off our work in the following folders! :)

WORK IN PROGRESS - wips.
SPECIES - model sheets and screenshots.
CONCEPTS - written and illustrated.
ANIMATIONS - model animations.

Hi. I'm sure this was expected by now. First, let me be very clear by saying that we are still going to do a Kickstarter. Just not anytime soon. The feedback that you all have offered on how to direct the Kickstarter has been helpful and informative. I can not express my gratitude toward all of you who have helped out with ideas. While I may only ever reply with "Thanks for the feedback!" (or I don't reply at all), know that I do read your comments and suggestions! For the game, kickstarter, and forum.

We (the administrators) are really busy right now with our real life priorities. So any form of patience you can offer is really appreciated. Please do not pry or pester for our personal information. Once again for your cooperation in this matter, you'll have our deepest gratitude!

For the delay on updates and progress I have heavily considered the release of the old, staff-only multispecies-demo. It has a lot of bugs and some of the models are out-dated. However I also feel it may be a good way to tide a lot of you over until we can provide a new update. On the other hand, answering repeat questions about out-dated models, out-dated animations, and a generally out-dated demo is not something I, or any of the team, really look forward to doing.... so that is on my mind, and I am considering it heavily.

Then there is the alternative of releasing the Decayed Reality/Iko demo for online play. My idea with this is hosting a server two to three times a week for users to play and chat on. Unfortunately, the old, old, old Decayed Reality/Iko demo has no large set of animations, it is only the old waddle wolf model, there is no user/pw system, and no way for the staff to really moderate other than to shut the server down when someone is misbehaving. As you can imagine, this could lead to a lot of problems. So I'm reluctant to this idea. Very reluctant. (Consider it a 2% chance of happening. :XD:)

Will model and animation / texture and marking work continue?

That is up to fatbirdshoes. I think things will continue as they are. Model work here, animation work there, some textures and markings now and then from the team.

When will the forum be 'fixed'?

Hoping relatively soon. I know there's been a few complaints about the Itera skin we use... even if it isn't THAT bad of a skin, LOL.

Can we expect a new demo/new demo content?

Not for some time, but I am considering making a new, updated demo .. for the Kickstarter, mostly.

Lastly, check out this Fundraiser to a good cause that we're doing for one of our very own community members who has hit hard times. It is unusual for us to do this, but they've been around for a while now, and we're sure that our beautiful community can help out.

For the delay in progress and updates this past year, I am sorry. For your unwavering patience, you have our gratitude.

Will felines be able to have tufts? I've seen the tiger markings on the feline models but without that bulky look, and round face it just doesn't look like a tiger. I've seen the markings on the bear models, and because of the round face, it actually looks similiar to a tiger.

When we moved forums all account information was left at the old one, so members would have to register again, yes.

Will the features of the animals be customizable and not just the colors? Could it be possible to have presets?

Please read the FAQ:

"
Will there be presets?

Yes. Yes, there will be presets. Your preset will have to be approved by the staff first. Why? Because we will be hosting presets online, so everyone can see your preset. Ziel: “You upload the preset texture to Photobucket or another image hosting site, and then in the character editor, select “use preset” under the section of markings you want to change.Then, once you’ve selected that, you’ll get a pop-up window. In that window, you will input the texture image URL. When you get in-world, then your preset texture will be loaded onto your character for anyone to see. People cannot steal your preset unless they know the direct link to the image, and you do not need to give them the file for them to see your preset.”?

Features will be customisable. For example the deer will have different antlers/horns to choose from. The Gryphon will have different beaks. Different ears for the canine. And a bunch more.
On top of that there will be something along the lines of sliders so you can customise the size and shape of your animal (skinny/fat, big ears/small ears, big eyes/small eyes, etc)
