Default Winterheart's Guild - Officially Unveiled

May 2nd, 2007, 19:36
You may recall back on RPGDot we revealed a new action/RPG being made in conjunction with band Sonata Arctica, titled Winterheart's Guild. Developer Zelian Games has now signed up for SpeedTree and the resulting press release has officially unveiled the game. Worthplaying has the announcement and a large batch of screens:
Winterheart’s Guild, developed by Zelian Games using its in-house ZelianX engine, is a post-apocalyptic action-RPG. The setting is a harsh, brutal Earth, after the destruction of civilization at its technological peak. In this world, resources are scarce, and the environment is as dangerous as the enemies that the player must face.
The world is mostly covered in snow and ice. It’s not only the health of your character that matters, but also warmth and energy. Valuable items are hard to come by. In this world, you truly feel the value of finding a good weapon and a reasonable stash of ammunition.
After the cataclysm, Earth’s population was diminished to a fraction of what it used to be. The planet was covered in snow and ice and resources were scarce, making survival extremely difficult.
Before long, several opposing factions started to emerge: the Dark Mages, the Technomancers and the Order of Nature, among others. Those who did not join the rising factions became known simply as “the free”. These villagers chose a simple way of life, and attempted to live in peace with others.
"Winterheart's Guild focuses heavily on natural outdoor scenery, and for this reason we needed the best possible tree engine and models,” said Zelian Technical Director Marius George. “During the integration phase, it quickly became obvious just how much effort and time it would take to create a similar system in-house.”
The band members are apparently characters in the game and head to the official site for more information.
More information.

Very interesting look to things, familiar 'tech vs magic' themes interspersed with post-apoc an other stuff … should be interesting.
