Skylands of Arnythos is an open world third-person role playing game where the player is thrown into a world where a set of mystifying events occur, your goal as an Apprentice will be to piece together the meaning of the events and their significance within the world. The game play and the story changes depending on the player’s actions and the world will respond to the player’s decisions and behavior.
The game takes place in a world called “Aliaterra” which means “Other Land” in Latin. On a skyland called Arnythos. The skyland of Arnythos is divided into 3 Provinces, Una, Yira, and Nori. The prequel will take place in the province of Yira.

Skylands of Arnythos is being developed by myself and Sarr. The original game design and core systems are all made by Sarr, while I primarily focus on visual effects and game play scripting as well as most of the upcoming graphic design work. We both basically met each other on the Unreal Engine marketplace, I’ve always been inspired by his vision for the game and I am excited to join him in the creation of Skylands of Arnythos!
Fully featured Blueprint versions of the systems used in the game are currently available on the marketplace, this is a great way to support us!
