It is the year 2015 and the observatory of Arecibo located in Puerto Rico captured a signal from alien galaxy, specifically from the constellation of Auriga.
The sciencists manage to calculate that the signal was sent when it was 34 B.C. on Earth. Nine years later, in 2024 the signal was decrypted thanks to quantum computer D-Wave Two.
In the message that was sent 2058 years ago was written: "You are not alone out here, visit us", together with attached plans for a one way quantum gate. In 2417 humans did the first successful tests and the quantum gate was ready. The first exploration spaceship was sent just two years later. When the crew arrived, they found an abandoned planet. From the founded artifacts the sciencists find out that civil war ocurred here and the planet was abandoned because of the influence of a molecular weapon changing the DNA of indigenous people. The sciencists also found a message with coordinates of constellation, in which the whole civilisation has moved. Unfortunately, only a name of the constellation was decrypted successfully: Azulgar. And thus, the mankind has no other choice but to start looking for the mystery surrounded constellation Azulgar to also finally find the origin of the message with the invitation. As a player, you take command over one of the stations and exploration ships in order to help with searching.
Legend of Azulgar is explorational type of RPG which takes place in deep space full of threat and hostile creatures. As a captain of space ship UEF Bretonia it is up to you to explore never visited parts of the universe and find technilogies which will help you in fight against the enemies. Your journey will be accompanied by a hundreds of random events and tasks, trading, awesome battles in action and strategic mode and mainly the eye-catching story which will take you through the know and also the unknow universe.
PROCEDURALLY GENERATED ENVIRONMENT, ORIGINAL UNIVERSE FOR EVERYONE!
Whole universe is generated systematically into blocks where each block gets its own newly created parameters, each time there are different objects, stars, enemies and random events located inside of them. Same thing happens to all items and tools which will have random parameters in certain range, like in Diablo fo instance. Each new item will be original version of itself, it will also have a different value for other players. Rarity of the item will be distinguished by different colors like for example in Word of Warcraft. And thanks to that Legend of Azulgar can offer infinite variations of universe and every new game will be completly different than the previous one. The player himself is by discovering the new parts of the universe and by his own decisions building his own story, which will literally become unrepeatable experience.
INTERESTING ABILITIES AND VARIOUS FIGHTING MODES
The game is not missing a tree of abilities as well, inspired by the most sophisticated version from the Ultima Online. Like the Ultima and other RPG’s you will have several hundreds of experience points at your disposal which you can invest into abilities of your experts in your ship. So for instance you can invest some experience points into weapons officer to increase fire rate or chance of critical hit for your weapons. You can also improve engines, energetic core in order to keep the shields up as well as weapons and life support and thus get the small chance of deflecting the bullets or obtaining highter capacity for shields. Every professional is definitely interested in combat system as well. It’s implemented in two modes. Player can then decide whether he’s going to fight in the Action or Strategic mode. Action mode offers the full control over each individual space ship in your fleet where you can use various keys to arbitrarily switch between individual space ships. The ships which are not currently under your control are controlled by the artificial intelligence inspired by your own moves. So you can effectively use a small fighter to damage the enemy engines and then jump back to commanding bridge from where you give the order to attack while having control over the biggest space ship in your fleet. In strategic mode you have the ability to control your ships as groups and formations, as we are used to from various RTS games. The system of strategic combat is mostly inspired by the game Homeworld 2. So you can control individual ships, groups or the whole fleet by the mouse and strategically position your space ships over the battlefield, send fighters and attack the enemy. You can also use all the installed weapons on the commander ship as well as on the other fighters. If the ship has many weapon systems installed you only control the selected weapon group and other weapons are under the AI’s control. So if you currently control the front and main turrets, side flek turrets will automatically fire after enemy fighters.
During the game you can also bring the new pilot into your fleet who will have his own ship, experience points, outfit and will be controlled by his own intelligence. Similarly to Diablo, the secondary pilot will be assisting you in the battles with the help of his own small fleet or will be mining raw materials while you will be busy exploring the space around the newly discovered star. The same way you can switch between fighters you are able to control the secondary pilot as well.
The multiplayer is also the part of the game which offers the same possibilities as written above. But the universe will be full of other players divided into several fractions. Individual fractions will fight each other over areas, planets and materials. Unlike other MMO’s where you practically play for yourself until you encounter stronger enemy, in Legend of Azulgar is the collaboration of community very important. Based on that, the business relationships will be developed in between members of one fraction or clan as well as their achievements. Each fraction not only has its own ships but also structures and stations which they have to defend. In the multiplayer you can look forward to constantly attack the enemy stations, planets and mining spots as well. The multiplayer will also not be missing a story which will be the same for each player. Wihole story of the universe will get changed by individual players by certain ammount. The story will be constantly modified according to the behavior of players in the game.
Decisions of each fraction or clan will determine into which direction the whole story of universe with thousands of players will go. So for instance if some fraction manage to destroy the planet and create a black hole, soon there will be a solution in which hundreds of player must collaborate together in order to close the black hole.
Legend of Azulgar is the unwritten book which awaits for players to write their own story. You will enter the infinite and unpredictable universe in which the danger and of course the action awaits at every corner.
