Arkhados: A FOSS fast paced 3D Arena game

Arkhados

I’m happy to present the game that I’ve been working on for some time now – Arkhados.

Arkhados is a fast paced multiplayer action PvP arena game where players move around and try to kill each other by casting various spells. Arkhados is entirely skill based, meaning that there is no automatic targeting and no random elements like critical strike chance or dodge chance. Think of it as a child of Quake and a game from MOBA genre.

Arkhados is very fast paced. There are no mana costs and arenas are quite small which makes gameplay very fast. Games usually last less than 10 minutes.

  • 5 distinct heroes each having 8 spells and two secondary spells
  • 2 game modes: Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch
  • Replay support

Cool stuff! This looks like it could be a candidate for cross platform to android. Good luck.

Thanks! :smile:

I don’t have any mobile devices except for old Nokia phone though, so porting to Android isn’t probably feasible. Also, I don’t know what kind of games people can play on Android but Arkhados is quite intensive and requires both precision and speed so mouse is required.

Like I wrote over at OGA… would be a perfect candidate to port over the level editor from OpenRTS, no?

(Like I wrote in OGA) Good idea, I’ll definitely investigate it.

Thanks for the suggestion!
