Description

Malmyr is a hybrid of city building and automation games. In contrast to other well known games of these genres the player is not meant to build the biggest city or largest factory. Malmyr's gameplay is focused on logic and creativity to accomplish the game's challenges. Each of the 12 missions of Malmyr's storyline have their own look & feel and compel the player to learn something new. Especially the quite unique resource transport mechanics stand out.

History

Since we can remember we wanted to make games. Not to get rich or become famous: We want to create awesome experiences for players. After finishing our studies, we decided to go for it. This is our first project. We might have no funding, but we are making up for it with dedication and love for detail. Our Vision: Making dreams come true! Philip has a master's degree in the field of game development. He handles the tough design questions with very talented hands. He made his first steps over 15 years ago, when he started making games with the well known RPG Maker. Working on games is the thing he always did. René just finished his master's thesis about game-based learning in the field of computer science. He is the one who produces a lot of the code (and bugs). As early as in kindergarden he drew race tracks and Super Mario levels on paper and "played" them. Now he finally has the skills to make games that others can enjoy on their computers.

Features

  • A main campaign with a continuous story, consisting of 3 acts with 4 unique missions each. Will you find out what your destiny in the lands of Malmyr is?

  • A sandbox mode, where you have all buildings available and start with copious amounts of resources.
  • About 50 buildings.
  • About 50 resources.
  • 12 Magical Runes and 3 special Runewords.
