Greetings from Russia!
We are thrilled that you have decided to check out our game project LIFE IS FEUDAL, and we are excited to have the opportunity to explain to you what we are trying to achieve! Everyone on our team are highly experienced gamers, and we just can’t get enough of hardcore MMORPG games!
Almost 3 years ago we decided to build our own online world, in which players could immersive themselves in a highly realistic medieval environment, and so LIFE IS FEUDAL was born. Being huge MMORPG fans, and being fans of medieval-themed titles, a realistic medieval scenario was an easy choice for us as a setting.
Although our team doesn’t have a large rolodex of past titles, LIFE IS FEUDAL comes from the heart. The quality of our current game is a testament to our commitment and love for what we do, and if anyone doubts that a start-up team can accomplish the impossible and build a large and vast MMORPG, check out LIFE IS FEUDAL! For the past 3 years we have worked very hard and diligently on putting together the most impressive PC Sandbox MMORPG.
Life is Feudal offers a host of incredible features making our game truly unique! It offers something for everyone, and the diverse and varied gameplay is enhanced by our continued commitment to adding new and cool features over time! Backers of this campaign will enjoy unlimited hours of adventuring, and very few players will ever be good enough, or skilled enough, to explore the rich and massive environment! Here is a quick breakdown of our games main features:
- Massive Seamless Open-Ended World. LIFE IS FEUDAL features a massive 441 square kilometer open seamless world! Our game has an island-like continent with different biomes such as plain, dense forest, steppe, desert, tundra and marsh, for example. All of the terrain is untouched nature inviting players to settle or invade! The continent is scattered with rivers, lakes and bays, and even has a roaring volcano!
- Free Terraforming & Tunnel Building. LIFE IS FEUDAL features 100% free terraforming and tunnel building! Dig tunnels, mines and moats, and expand them in all dimensions almost without limitations! You can raise and lower ground levels with a land fall effect. Substances include soil, rock, granite, ore veins, clay, sand, and many more!
- Free Modular & Predefined Construction of Buildings & Objects. LIFE IS FEUDAL features more than 100 buildings and objects! Most buildings can be placed anywhere with free rotation and are predefined. Fortifications are modular allowing you to design and build your own unique castles with pattern, towers, gates etc. You can even place palisade walls and fences.
- Rich Crafting System. LIFE IS FEUDAL features a crafting system with more than 500 recipes, including but not limited to mining, smelting, forging, logging, carpentry, construction, masonry, architecture, farming, taming, procuration, cooking, tailoring, fishing and hunting! Crafting is enriched through clever use of mini-games.
- Almost Unlimited Number of Unique Alchemy Combinations. LIFE IS FEUDAL features over 40 billion alchemy combinations unique to each player! Unlike other online games you need to learn, experiment and create your very own unique combinations. Alchemy is not just a matter of character skill, as it has strong emphasis on players spending time and resources on creating good recipes and combinations.
- Innovative Mini-Games Concept. LIFE IS FEUDAL features a plethora of mini-games that adds immersion and fun to the medieval crafting process, and allows gamers to play isolated parts of the game directly from a browser! Mini-Games offer an opportunity to improve on a given craft, and rewards players with bonuses.

- Physics-Based Melee & Ranged Combat. Physics come into play as well, as does the quickness of the attacker and defender. A swift use of a sword at a high velocity causes extensive damage.
- Realistic Player Damage System. With fractures and bleeding wounds you can create different unique combat tactics.

- Double Health & Stamina Bars. Double health and stamina bars represents your body status better. Players can be knocked out or dead, can be temporary out of breath or totally exhausted.
- Original Battle Formation System. In massive battles, react accordingly to the combat situation and provide your Unit with a certain bonuses. But to receive these bonuses Unit members must be well organized and always keep formation.
- Innovative Battle System. Battles will happen on an instanced server, without interference of 3rd parties, without senseless obstacles and with full statistic records. That is how history of feudal wars will be tracked!

- Wild Animals Tracking & Hunting. You can find different tracks of different animals and follow them.
LIFE IS FEUDAL has a tentative official release date of 2015, but this is subject to change and does not mean the game will not be available to download and play online a long time before that! The truth is, we plan to have an early ALPHA available right after successful finish of this campaign, and next year in 2014, there will be additional content and features added to the game, taking it to the BETA level.
