My name is Matthew Norman, and I’m a Co-Founder of Epoch Games. Epoch Games is a global, fully-online volunteer team developing The Lays of Althas: Sundered Order (LoA:SO), a single player, open-world, original low-fantasy RPG being developed in Unreal Engine for the PC. Currently there are 38 of us working on the game and we are near to completing our first Demo.
Keep in mind that, at this time, we are still a completely volunteer development team. Likewise, all of our open positions are volunteer and we cannot offer any monetary compensation at this time. When we begin receiving funding, we have a Revenue Share and Stock Sharing plan in place, where all developers on the team will earn a percentage of all revenue made by the project and own stocks within the company.
The Lays of Althas: Sundered Order
LoA:SO, as mentioned, is a single player, open world RPG being developed for Unreal Engine 4. Althas is the name of the low-fantasy fictional continent that the game will take place on.
Ever since it’s early history, Althas has been a land shaken by conflicts. In the early days, these conflicts pitted the Anointed Kingdoms of Men against dark and demonic forces that threatened them. However, with the passage of time, the world has changed: the Anointed order is eroding away and new powers are rising. Another war looms on the horizon, a war of personal and political motivation. Thenodar, a burgeoning new kingdom in the North, and Anorthile, one of the last of the three remaining Anointed Kingdoms, now prepare for a war that will shake all of Althas. Old demons and new enemies gather in the shadows of both lands as each sets their sights on the ruined wilderness known as The Feralands.
