Welcome to the Beasts of Bermuda Wiki
What is Beasts of Bermuda?
In Beasts of Bermuda, you play as a prehistoric creature native to the mysterious islands of Bermuda: a tropical ecosystem absent from any human contact. With its propensity to storms and shifting tides, Bermuda is an ever-changing ecosystem. Choose from up to 18 currently available creatures, herbivore or carnivore, and battle your way through the severity of hunger, thirst, stress and predation, which constantly threaten your survival. Play whatever suits you best, whether it be a flying, swimming or running creature, and thrive on the islands.
It is currently under development, and was first released on December 21st, 2018 as a primarily multiplayer server experience. Check out the game's Steam page here!
What does Beasts of Bermuda offer?
Beasts of Bermuda offers the experience of playing in unique niches as an aquatic, flying, or terrestrial creature. Certain creatures specialize in unique gameplay. For instance, piscivores offer a different lifestyle to traditional carnivores as they are both adept at swimming and running.
It also offers unique map elements. Whether you're seeking a cave for shelter from a storm, waiting for the tide to drop in order to walk across to a new island, or migrating to avoid a forest fire (currently unimplemented) or depleted watering hole, the map is always changing and the world is alive.
The playable creatures in Beasts of Bermuda all have their own unique abilities. Some can grab their prey, others can pounce massive distances. Some can even climb up walls. Large carnivores can sniff for prey, and herbivores have special bonuses for herding together. Every animal is different in Beasts of Bermuda, and a lot of effort has been put into making the mechanics enjoyable.
Comfort is a unique mechanic that determines how healthy your creature is. At its highest peak, a creature can grow well and healthy. At low comfort, however, a creature becomes stressed and may die. Stress can be caused by (but causes are not limited to) standing near too many carnivores, exposure to a harsh storm, or over-eating.
Beasts of Bermuda also gives players free choice of how they want to look. Skins are completely customizable, allowing the player a free range of color choices, whether it be for camouflage or dazzle. Additionally, the talent mechanic lets a player choose their creature's specialties and spend points into different kinds of play styles, such as extra health or speed.
Breeding is also available; offspring will be mixtures of their parent's corresponding skins and colors as well as occasionally sporting mutations of the leucistic, melanistic, and wildcard varieties. They also inherit some of the talents of their parents.
Many different challenges are always present on the islands of Bermuda that threaten survival. One must find food and quench their Thirst in the ever-changing environment. Different animals the player can choose from having different means of obtaining food. Some are carnivores, needing to hunt and eat other players to survive. Other creatures are herbivores, and thus have a more peaceful means of eating. Piscivores are a mix, being capable of eating other players, or eating fish for survival. Along with the necessities from day to day survival, mother nature is always at your heels with unpredictable Weather, keeping the game interesting and entertaining to play.
- Life-cycle - This is the nominal game mode, and by far the most popular. The player must begin as a juvenile of any species and grow over time, becoming more powerful and eventually competing with other players. Gradual ontogeny is also a feature under this category that adds to the realism aspect of growing from a juvenile to an adult; eventually, accompanying model changes differentiating younger members of different species from their older counterparts. This mode is coupled with a talent or skill point-based system, in which the player becomes more powerful in ways they can choose. An additional aspect of this game mode is the currently work-in-progress Trial System.
- Combat - A gamemode that involves constant battling. Players will spawn as adult creatures and can kill other players in order to gain ever-increasing points. However, when you die, a percentage of your points are transferred to your killer.
- Free Roam - In this gamemode, the player can select any creature to play as 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 gamemmode to socialize, explore, or fight.
Regardless of the selected mode of play settings may differ from server to server-based upon their 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 is still very much under development. Future development will likely focus on expanding our playable creature roster, improving the quality of our graphics, models, and general assets, and then implementing additional game modes beyond Free Roam.
The game released on Dec 21st, 2018 on the game's steam page. Also within their steam page is the devs' patch notes where you can read in detail what new mechanics have been implemented. The best way, however, to keep up with development is to join their discord here: https://discord.gg/KZKzGTT where you can ask the Devs in the appropriate channels about the current build of the game.
What creatures are planned to be playable?
The following creatures have been confirmed for Beasts of Bermuda and have a model. Most are currently playable. Any on this list that are not currently playable will be in the future.
- Allosaurus (Not playable yet)
- Oryctodromeus (Not playable yet)
- Rubeosaurus (Not playable yet)
- Tropeognathus (Not playable yet)
- Tyrannosaurus rex
- Utahraptor (Not playable yet)
The following creatures have been confirmed to be added to Beasts of Bermuda but do not have a model yet.
There is a chance that the following creatures will be playable due to the interest of the developers in expanding the niches available to players in Beasts of Bermuda. Many of these animals are selected due to their unique niches or ability to utilize certain gameplay mechanics. Many are piscivores, aquatic creatures, flying creatures, or semiaquatic creatures.
(One of) Sarcosuchus, Deinosuchus, Purussaurus (SA)
Carcharodontosaurus/Yutyrannus (having one does not mean we won't get the other later)
(One of) Polacanthus, Sauropelta, Edmontonia, Gastonia, Borealopelta, Antarctopelta
(One of) Therizinosaurus, Deinocheirus
Contectopalatus or other ‘small’ Ichthyosaur
(One of) Hatzegopteryx, Quetzalcoatlus
Discussed creatures are animals that have been discussed to be added, but have not been confirmed and are less likely to be added. The developers hope to have at least two creatures of every "type" added to the game. With the proper resources, some of these creatures may be added.
Where the words (one of) appear, only one creature of that group will be added.
The list of discussed creatures is as follows:
Masiakasaurus (Possible SA)
Majungasaurus and/or Ceratosaurus
(One of) Aralosaurus, Corythosaurus, Iguanodon, Ouranosaurus
(One of) Centrosaurus, Einiosaurus, Monoclonius, Pachyrhinosaurus, Pentaceratops, Styracosaurus, Torosaurus
(One of) Dacentrurus, Kentrosaurus, Lexovisaurus, Tuojiangosaurus
Hyneria (Limited SA)
Of course, this list may be expanded. There is a channel in the game's official Discord in which to suggest Mesozoic creatures with unique abilities.
Why does Beasts of Bermuda need Donations?
Beasts of Bermuda needs funds to commission and contract professionals for services related to modeling, animating, sound creation, skin design, level design, and just overall improvements. Up to this point, the game has been created by Predatoria and Vipe, two indie developers focused on the coding behind the game, with freelance contribution from several contributors. Most of our current models are from asset stores and we want to replace them with professional models. To bring our game to the next level of quality, we need to network with professionals in all departments of game design rather than just indefinitely coding more mechanics into the game, which requires funding neither of us can afford to do.
