Description

Elemensional Rift is a clash of the elements rooted at a long standing family rivalry of the Elemensional siblings! The balance of power is losing stability and the seeds of the green-eyed monsters are blooming. The fate of the NRverse hangs on the outcome of this clash! The survivors will shape the balance of the elements to their desires with the glorious prize of omnipotent until the return of the next sibling rivalry clash. Up to four players playing simultaneously to create a true battlefield of chaos. Simplistic gameplay to pick up but plenty of ingredients to strategize around and master. Attack with brute force, torment with ailments, bind by sapping their elemental energy, destroy the environment, and whatever else it takes to defeat your foes. A multitude of different gameplay to provide a variety of matches that will keep a refreshed and exhilerating experience.

History

Elemensional Rift began as a solo developer project when NR, utd. lost Psunna during H-o-H development. The purpose of Elemensional Rift was to develop a small enough project with minimal expenses that a single developer can result in raising enough money to help Psunna be able to return working with NR, utd. During the development, Psunna was forced to move on and away from the art field and that allowed NR, utd. to re-evaluate the design to give more depth and meat to the inner mechanics. This change led to a shift in scope to really polish the mechanics and provide much more attention to the more subtle details and greater immersion with the overall feel while maintaining a scope a single developer can manage a quality experience in delivery. Elemensional Rift made it's first public appearance at Momo Con 2015. During that time, it was also running an IndieGoGo campaign. While the campaign did not gain much traction from a solo developer managing so much, the backers that were garnered have been extremely supportive and involved in the shaping and balancing of the cast since. Elemensional Rift's next public appearance was SIEGE 2016 where a lot of new insights and internal designs have since been shaped to change designs that are to come, such as the story mode. Elemensional Rift is currently getting ready for Momo Con 2016.
