AQUARYOUNS World is a 3D online strategy and business simulation game and will set the focus on economic activity.

You starts as AQUARYOUN and leads his human civilization to glory and honor.

The underwater world on planet Earth is divided into different Zones with different environmental conditions, such as average temparature, current, algae growth, ...


(Different zones with different environmental conditions)

In each zone, humanity has marked hexagonal Plateaus for colonization. Neighbouring Plateaus are grouped in Clusters, and each Plateau is subdivided into 61 hexagonal Claims, which serve as basic cells for department construction.


(hexagonal claim on a plateau, preALPHA)


(Plateau Design 2.0)

You start with a single control center on one single Claim in the corner of a Plateau...


(Control Center, preALPHA)

...steadily building up your economy, spreading your influence on other Claims and trying to dominate the entire Plateau.


(Animation Department Building, Plateau Design 1.0, preALPHA)

You have to create complex economic cycles with factories to produce resources and process them into goods to create ships.


(Pioneer Ship, preALPHA)


(Factory with Guppy Ship, preALPHA)

The depth of the economic levels within AQUARYOUNS World will increase from time to time. We want to make a game for the arcade gamer, but for experienced economy gamers, too.


(View over the plateau, Plateau Design 1.0, preALPHA)

Beware of the other players and the NPC enemy that is already strengthening its economy in the same Plateau! As soon as you hold control of your Plateau, you will probably start wondering where to go next.

You can enter a specially created control room to see your influence growing. It contains a strategy table to show you all plateaus of the current zone as well as a detailed map of the selected plateau cluster as a hologram projection. This projection shows you the current diplomatic relations, available resources and current events.

(Tour control room, preALPHA)

AQUARYOUNS World intelligent placement algorithm aligns the in-game spatial distances with the real-world geography. In combination with a location-based day/night-cycle, this will help you experience, AQUARYOUNS World as a future version of our Earth instead of some random ocean planet.

Although AQUARYOUNS World is a online game, it will contain a classic DEMO mode in which players can taste the AQUARYOUNS World feeling. The DEMO mode will be playable without any registration. If the player thinks he is ready for the complete AQUARYOUNS World experience, he will have to sign up. This will push his current stage of the game (single player) to the server (multiplayer).


(Login Screen with DEMO Mode, preALPHA)

AQUARYOUNS will allow you to individualize the appearance of your avatar and civilization!

Custom textures, own colors, modifications for the 3D models of your ships, special logos and non-standard naming or your graffiti on your Claims.

Let your imagination run wild!

Perform research in your labs and even discover new and unknown raw materials by combining resources with different attributes and name any material that you were the first to discover!

(comes with Stretch Goal "Research System")



In the distant future, when climate change, tectonic activity and human experiments have caused the sea level to rise beyond all expectations and continents on earth have ceased to exist.

Humanity has learned to live underwater in the shallow regions of the one global ocean.

Nobody knows the secrets deep down in the ocean! Discover unknown areas and ...

...find out what Nepû means.

...get in touch with the Wæ,krÿs and learn why everyone thinks they are decended from wandering and businesses-making greed.

...discover what space actually has to do with our world ocean.



AQUARYOUNS World will come with more than 21 departments in detailed 3D optic.


(Harbor, preALPHA)

Sulphur Factory by djamacat on Sketchfab

Build recycler to prevent an ecological catastrophe and to reclaim resources from the rubbish of your civilization. Or create a mighty trade empire by exchanging goods on the stock market for the universal in-game currency "Prions" (not to be confused with "Qurons" which are used to buy customization and individualization).


(Selection of more than 21 buildable departments, preALPHA)

Each one of the more than 21 departments provides his own inventory and business feature.


(Department HUD for Research, preALPHA)


(Department HUD for Generic Factory/Smelter, preALPHA)

In the large and detailed encyclopedia of AQUARYOUNS you will find information about each department.


(Encyclopedia HUD, preALPHA)



More than 6 ship classes will be available in AQUARYOUNS World.

Each class is based on a default model. You have the opportunity to customize...

  • the weapons,
  • the engines,
  • the armor...
by adding or replacing individual modules. Or you want to change a ship to a ground vehicle? With this hugh range of possibilities you can...
  • build pioneer ships and travel to other Plateaus, distant Clusters or even a complete different Zone. Land there and start working on another control center to spread your people and your influence.
  • make war with other players and beat your enemy to the seabed with a mighty submarine army.
  • train special ground units and troops to infiltrate your opponents' vessels and departments.


(Concept Arts Ships/Ship Classes)


(Concept Arts modularization of two ship classes)



AQUARYOUNS World comes with a minimalistic HUD interface, so that nothing will stop you from getting lost in its underwater world.


(Ingame HUD, Plateau Design 1.0, preALPHA)

Our Global Identification, Selection & Moving Object, short "GISMO"...


(GISMO presentation of all layers, preALPHA)

... is a single button that presents you with an arc-shaped context menu. The possible options vary with the selected elements (department, unit, terrain, …).



AQUARYOUNS World will initially be published in English and German with further languages to come as the game spreads around the globe.

You will be able to play AQUARYOUNS anytime, anywhere. After the Start of the EarlyAccess AQUARYOUNS is available on STEAM. Or simply open http://aquaryouns.games in your browser, desktop or mobile, and dive under!

We are also going to release AQUARYOUNS for Google Play Store, Apple App Store, Windows Store and Consoles as soon as possible.



AQUARYOUNS World is only one game of a series of AQUARYOUNS games, multiple games - all placed int one universe.

But what do we mean with "One Universe" and "Multiple Games"?

And what the hell is AQUARYOUNS?

We don't mean a game that is strategy and RPG, tetris-like and business simulation, point-and-click adventure and MOBA, all at the same time.

No. We don't.

We wouldn't want to play such a game. We mean several games of different genres that share the same world data!

What if...

...you could let your RPG character stroll right through the department block that you've built in your business simulation this very morning?

...your 5-minute mobile arcade game in the bus could boost the productivity of the factories in your business simulation?

...the war that your alliance started changed the point-and-click adventures all over the world – forever?

...you fought this war yourself in a MOBA game, affecting the outcome of a battle in the main strategy game?


Think of

as a complete big game world which will only work fine with more than one separate AQUARYOUNS game. We see all games in the AQUARYOUNS universe as singles released from the big music album "AQUARYOUNS".


This principle of many games sharing the same world is one of the heart of AQUARYOUNS!

The AQUARYOUNS games will not only share the same timeline, ALL games will interact with each other. That means the data of an AQUARYOUNS World player will be shared with another AQUARYOUNS game in real time.

Everything is connected and live.

Let's try a thought experiment:

Assume that you are playing an AQUARYOUNS point-and-click adventure. You discover an interesting department in the AQUARYOUNS universe. Finding some quests and items, speaking with people or interacting with a certain room.

Suddenly everything changes around you. Your dialogue partner flees, the room is shaking, all lights turn to red. You want to know what's going on?

You switch the room and see that the whole department is deserted. After finding the control panel you notice the cause: The claim and the department is under attack (triggered through an action in in another AQUARYOUNS game).

Now you have to choose:

Leave the department and the claim as soon as possible or join the defence.


At the same time a player of AQUARYOUNS World receives the "department under attack" message. He'll see, that his building is under attack from an enemy player. He has to organize a defence and order support to the location.

Now both players, one in AQUARYOUNS World and another one in AQUARYOUNS Point-And-Click-Adventure, try to defend the same department although they play different AQUARYOUNS games.


That describes the heart of AQUARYOUNS:

All games share the same universe at the same time.


Our greatest goal is to make the exciting vision of the legendary AQUARYOUNS universe available to all prospective seafarers.

It must not be, that the size of anyones Quron-wallet* decides if he or she can dive in or has to stay on land. AQUARYOUNS is not a sealed off underwater-area on our mother earth.

Everyone, whether big or small, should be able to experience AQUARYOUNS!

So we want to release some AQUARYOUNS games free to play. For us this also includes free content updates.

However we are just a small studio that needs a budget to continue working too.

In this case we have to find a fair way between undisturbed game pleasure and getting a budget.


Creating the best possible AQUARYOUNS-experience with a low-budget development process (and hopefully an active community of players and fans to guide the way) requires compromises.

One of these compromises will be that we won't release all these games all at the same time. We'll start with AQUARYOUNS World.


* Qurons are our ingame currency



Once AQUARYOUNS World has hatched from its EarlyAccess phase, we plan to launch AQUARYOUNS Arena soon after.

AQUARYOUNS Arena is a MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) game, featuring 1-vs-1 and group-vs-group battles. A single Plateau serves as the arena for epic and action-packed battles that determine the outcome of the wars in AQUARYOUNS World.



A tetris-like / casual / arcade game for your 5-minutes-waiting-for-the-bus or the 15 minutes before you really turn off the PC and go to bed. Each game directly impacts the productivity of a factory in AQUARYOUNS World.

Compare your scores in local, regional and global leaderboards and become the best factory manager on earth!



A collection of exciting point-and-click adventures, set in the AQUARYOUNS underwater stage.

Visit your own Claim from AQUARYOUNS World or travel the entire ocean! Take on quests, gather items, and find out why Earth looks the way it does in the AQUARYOUNS game world!





Our greatest wish is to gather an active and strong community of players! One of the reasons for launching this campaign in the first place.

Naturally, an Online Game like AQUARYOUNS needs many players to be fun. This makes Crowdfunding the perfect platform both for collecting the funding needed for the final development spurt and for gathering a great initial player community!

The more of you sign up for EarlyAcces and the more of you spread the word, the better a gaming experience AQUARYOUNS will become!

You can help. NOW!

Please register on our website https://www.aquaryouns.com as well!

After sign-up, you'll also get a unique sharing link to refer your friends to - and for every friend that signs up using this link, you earn points which translate to in-game Qurons!



Until now

  • We've already invested hundreds and hundreds or working hours in game design and development.
  • The core game mechanics are defined, and the world is set up and designed, lacking only a finishing polish.

Crowdfunding Campaign

  • The campaign will run until end of March.
  • It will provide us with enough funding to finish setting up the server infrastructure, correcting plenty of bugs beforehand, and hopefully allow us to go even further and include more content and features earlier – see the "Stretch Goals" section.

ALPHA

  • Pledge on the "Pioneer" tier or above in order to be one of AQUARYOUNS "First Pioneers" that prepare the ocean floor for human civilization!
  • We plan to launch AQUARYOUNS World as a Closed Alpha version in the second quarter of 2019.
  • The ALPHA version will include:
    - 21 different departments (some lacking part of their functionality)
    - 11 different resources
    - blueprint system
    - GISMO HUD
    - civilization profile with 2D avatar (Aquaryoun)
    - messaging system
    - bug report system
    - feedback module
  • During the ALPHA phase, very regular (up to daily) updates will be deployed that may affect all game aspects (game-play, UI and design, infrastructure,...).
  • This is when we need your feedback and constructive ideas most!

BETA

  • Pledge on the smallest level or apply on our Website https://www.aquaryouns.com for access to the Closed BETA!
  • As soon as the Closed ALPHA passes the first tests and everything runs smoothly, we'll proceed to the Closed BETA phase, probably at some point in the third or fourth quarter of the year.
  • Throughout the entire BETA phase, we'll provide regular major and minor updates with new features and bugfixes. At the same time, we'll slowly start the development of the next AQUARYOUNS games.
  • All unlocked Stretch Goals will be integrated during the BETA phase.
  • Towards the end of the year, we'll open up access to the entire world (Open BETA).

Release Candidate

  • We don't want to make any promises for when AQUARYOUNS World will be released for good, since it strongly depends on the scope of the game, which in turn depends on how many Stretch Goals we'll achieve and how many new features will be requested by the community during the ALPHA and BETA phases.
  • There is no end to development: AQUARYOUNS won't ever be a one-shot-finished-title, but a living and evolving world!





Most of the Stretch Goals represent additional modules that give variety and depth to the game and thus will enhance your gaming experience, ultimately increasing your fun with AQUARYOUNS!

So, here's what you can help to unlock:

We are extremely excited about this project. We hope that you are, too.

So, go ahead and support this campaign! Now, it's up to you.
