Trail of Ayash is an innovative and exciting open world game focused on the native American people, their sturggles and their stories in the Pre-Columbian era. Our world is a unique version of North America dominated by the myths and legends of Its Inhabitants. Various tribes interact with one another, engaging in diplomacy, war, and expansion. We included over seven native American tribes: Innuit, Onondaga, Cree, Algonquian, Chipewyan, Yupik.
We have crafted an open world rife for exploration and conflict. You will interact with the various tribes of Native Americans. That alone can make for a compelling gaming experience, but there is something more. Something much darker that lurks in the forests and wilderness. In the corner of your eye and the slight cracks in the earth. They hunger. Also, to survive alongside your fellow tribals, You will have to battle the stuff of nightmares. Creatures born from the minds of men and spirits that terrify the soul talked about in hushed voices around campfires by storytellers and shamans. The world of Ayash they are very real and the monsters of this world must be fought lest you lose your life or your soul to beasts both natural and profane.

Unique sacred medicine implemented into healing system. Our accuracy doesn’t stop at simulating AI and environments. We have incorporated the rituals of native Americans into our gameplay mechanics. Use sacred medicinal techniques with help from the spirits and plants around to heal yourself.

Period-accurate dialogues based on native beliefs and traditions. In our opinion, there’s nothing worse than a period or fantasy-centric story where everyone speaks in modern, anachronistic, American style English. Our dialogue is also accurate for the time. Allowing for players to truly roleplay as a part of the world that existed centuries ago.
Original skill system based on great spirit and religion. However, we’ve got a unique twist on that in keeping with our promise to meld native American lore with deep mechanics inherent in any good RPG. You will have access to Shamanism, Herbalism, Spiritual Healing, Animism, and all other differing playstyles. Multiple playthroughs and experimentation are encouraged and rewarded — jewelry craft inspired by real native American jewelry and cooking systems inspired by their recipes.
Quests are basing on native legends, myths, and ordeals. Unnatural forces dominate the world. You have the opportunity to save it, or perhaps you crave domination yourself? You can also subjugate the land becoming a worst beast than anything else in the world, or maybe You want to get by. You want to survive in our open questing system anything is possible. Be who You want to be. Do you get a nearby friendly tribal to help you build a bridge over a lake? He may ask you something in return but be wary.
Not all tribes are friendly. Some beasts walk and talk in the shape of men as part of our historical accuracy we have to acknowledge the darker part of native culture. Some tribes engaged in cannibalism, sacrifice, and executions. These all exist in the world and are hostile towards you. Do you fight them or sneak around them? Do you commune with their spirits to hide from them? It’s up to you, but you may die in the attempt. You will not be missed.
Become Ayash. Once a respected member of his tribe until a trusted family member betrayed and framed him. Alone and without aid Ayash must redeem himself amidst the intrigue of tribal society and the monsters lurking in the wilderness or perhaps avenge himself on those who abandoned him. The story is open-ended. You control Ayash; You decide who will live and who will pay, You choose how Ayash fairs on his trail.
We want to create an experience that hasn’t been seen before by anyone, and we have the dedication to do it. We want our games to be LOVED by our fans. We want to work with our community and get as much feedback as early as possible to make the game that fans want. It’s a rewarding experience when developers can talk to fans, and the fans can influence what we make in the best possible way. Indiegogo is perfect for that. Depending on how well we do on this Indiegogo your support enables us either to finance the full development by ourselves or to negotiate a publisher deal on our terms. In both cases, we can make the game of our dreams. The game you want. An RPG dream game on par with the greatest of the genre. We can do it!
We need funds to help support the wages of the dedicated people that are working on the game. As we said, the base Indiegogo goal will go towards creating the essential pre-alpha experience. We can then show this off to publishers as an example of the vision. Perhaps we can get enough to work on the game entirely through those Indiegogo funds. However we are confident that we can finish the game regardless of the outcome of crowdfunding, but every little bit helps to make our game fully realized. That is all up to you. We hope you consider supporting Trails of Ayash.
