landsofhope2Regal Computer Services, veterans in the field who have been creating browser-based RPGs for the last 15 years, have started seeking funding for their newest project, a continuation of their successful title, Lands of Hope. With a fanbase of 100,000, Lands of Hope was Regal’s most successful title, and now the tale continues with the next installation in the online, open world, browser-based RPG series.

The game will be extremely accessible, taking place entirely in a browser window without the need for downloads or installation, and will feature hundreds of hours of gameplay. The player can freely explore, encountering dungeons and ruins, uncovering the history of Myzan, and leveling up one of 140 skills and powers across 9 classes, all with their own backstories, weaknesses, and abilities. Lands of Hope Redemption will also feature integration with Facebook and Kongregate, and the first stretch goal will allow offline play. The game will also feature crafting and gathering systems to allow players to strengthen themselves through better equipment, and skills such as stealth and stealing will be available, allowing you to choose how to play the game freely. Combat will take place on an isometric plane against single or multiple enemies and will be turn-based to contrast with the real-time world exploration.

Lands of Hope Redemption is slated for a September 2014 release if its modest $7,000 goal is met, with a Beta coming this summer. Backers can expect access to that Beta, extra classes, special areas, and the ability to design influential characters in the story. Lands of Hope Redemption is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter.
