Introduction.png

Beasts of Bermuda is a survival game in which you play as a prehistoric creature native to the mysterious islands of Bermuda: a tropical ecosystem absent from human contact and full of prehistoric life. With its propensity to storms and shifting tides, wildfires and even tornados, the Bermuda is an ever-changing ecosystem. Choose from several creatures, including terrestrials, flyers, aquatics or semi-aquatics, and battle your way through the severity of hunger, thirst, stress, and predation, all of which are aspects that pose as constant threats to your survival. Play as whichever creature suits you the best, be it an herbivore, a carnivore, a piscivor or even an omnivore and learn to thrive on the islands of Bermuda.

The game is currently under development and was first released on December 21st, 2018 as a primarily multiplayer experience. Check out its Steam page here!

What does Beasts of Bermuda have to offer?

Beasts of Bermuda offers the experience of playing in unique niches as an (semi-)aquatic, flying, or terrestrial creature. Certain creatures specialize in unique gameplay. For instance, semiaquatics offer a lifestyle that is different from traditional carnivores and marines, as they are both adept at swimming and running.

The game also has unique map elements. Whether you're seeking a cave to shelter from a storm, waiting for the tide to drop to walk safely to a new island, or migrating to avoid a forest fire or a depleted water source, the map is always changing around you and feeling alive.

The playable creatures in Beasts of Bermuda all have their own unique abilities. Some can grab their prey, others can pounce large distances, and some can even climb up walls. Every animal is different in Beasts of Bermuda, and a lot of effort has been put into making the mechanics unique and enjoyable.

Comfort is a unique mechanic that determines how healthy your creature is. At its highest peak, a creature can grow well, but at its lowest, a creature becomes stressed and can die. Stress can be caused by (but is not limited to) over-eating, staying near ungrouped creatures, and exposure to harsh storms.

Beasts of Bermuda give players free reign over how they look. Skins are completely customizable, allowing the user a free range of color choices, whether it be for camouflage or dazzle. Additionally, the talents mechanic allows players to choose their creature's specialties and spend points in different kinds of playstyles, such as extra health or speed.

Breeding is also an available mechanic; offspring will receive a mixture of their parents' corresponding skins and colors, as well as occasionally sporting mutations of the leucistic, melanistic, and wildcard varieties. Offspring will receive inherits based on their parents' talent trees.

Many different challenges are always present in Beasts of Bermuda. One must find food and quench their thirst in the ever-changing environment. Different animals have different means of obtaining food. Some are carnivores who need to hunt and eat their fellow players to survive. Others are herbivores, and thus have more peaceful means of eating. Piscivores are capable of eating both other players and fish. Along with the necessities of day-to-day survival, mother nature is always at your heels with its unpredictable weather that keeps the game interesting to play.

Current Gamemodes

  • Life-cycle - This is the nominal game mode, and by far the most popular. The player begins as a juvenile of any species and grows over time, becoming more powerful the bigger they get. Eventually, accompanying model changes will differentiate younger members from their older counterparts. This mode is coupled with a talent or point-based system, in which the player becomes more powerful in the skills they choose. An additional aspect of this game mode is the work-in-progress Trial System.
  • Combat - This game mode involves constant battling. Players will spawn as adult creatures and can kill other players to gain ever-increasing points. When you die, a percentage of your points are transferred to your killer. Train here to improve your chances of survival or just have fun!
  • Free Roam - In this game mode, the player can select any creature to play without the cost of punishment for death. This mode offers a relaxed atmosphere in which the player can do as they wish. Players tend to join this game mode to socialize, explore, or fight.

Regardless of the selected mode of play, settings may differ from server to server based on the owner's preferences.

Where is Beasts of Bermuda in its development?

Beasts of Bermuda began development on January 16th, 2017. Currently, the game offers a fully functional game world with many combat mechanics and map-based survival elements already in place. Make no mistake, our game is still pre-release and very much under development. Future development will likely focus on expanding the playable creature roster, improving the quality of the graphics, models, general assets, and then implementing additional game modes.

The game was released on Dec 21st, 2018 on the game's steam page. Within their steam page are the game's patch notes where you can read in detail what new mechanics have been implemented. However, the best way to keep up with development is to join the official Beasts of Bermuda discord (https://discord.gg/jYaRG5X), where you can ask the developers in the appropriate channels about the current build of the game.
