Syrenaica is a Chilean game company... and they're currently developing their first game. Oscar Contreras, who has worked as a Development Director at Electronic Arts, is the founder of Syrenaica. Their game Evilot is an interesting and vibrant, yet familiar puzzle/defense game. You can visit their Kickstarter page to learn more about their game!
As Count Dolfus, an evil overlord, you want to enjoy some R&R and live the rest of your life in peace. But with lurking heroes and adventurists looking to steal your most prized possessions, it proves to be a difficult endeavor.
To repel these do-gooders, you must rally your army of minions and protect whats yours!
Evilot plays like a standard puzzle/defense game, but with some unique gameplay added in.
The team has developed a "combo mechanic" system, to make the game more engaging to the player.
Once you have placed 3 units in a row or column, those units are removed from the board and get replaced by a single unit, but at a much higher level.
Choosing your defense, which units to send in, are recurring decisions you must address. This adds a strategy element which other known titles lack.
Another feature which makes this game unique is how you amass your army. Rather than collecting resources and having to buy units, you build up your combos, then you will be able to place more units onto the board. Bigger combos, bigger army.
With your help, the Syrenaica team will be able to raise enough funds to record Evilot’s soundtrack with a LIVE orchestra, which will be performed by the Macedonian Radio Symphony Orchestra. This will be possible once Syrenaica reaches the initial goal of 10,000 USD, any additional funds will be used to improve the game.
Syrenaica's Kickstarter project ends on Friday September 7th. Thats ten days from the time this post goes live.
