Suddenly you have been shrunk.

 

Without knowing why, you found yourself in the world of small creatures. Why that's happened? Have all the humanity been shrunk or are you alone? There are so many questions that you should answer but before you do that, you must find a place to hide, because you didn't feed your sweet squirrel for a long time, and it's starving now.

 

With Smalland, lots of terms of survival have been changed and appeared quite a detailed game. The wind can blow your items, even your building if you didn't build it strong enough. The rain can be pretty dangerous, it can cause puddles. You're really small, and puddles are not just puddles anymore.

 

As a tiny person, there is a huge adventure that is waiting for you full of the lively ecosystem and great moments. You must be careful and craft creative items for staying alive in this crazy world. And if you want, your friends can join your adventure. With your help, we can make this project real.

CORE FEATURES

STRONG ECOSYSTEM

One of the most powerful features is having the really strong ecosystem. Animals have to survive just like you. They have to find a place and food and sometimes they become really dangerous for you. Ants can steal your items, you can be a meal for rabbits. Animals can kill each other and it may lead to an increase in animal populations. For now, we haven't implemented it for every animal yet. But we will.

HIGH-DETAILED WEATHER SYSTEM

In Smalland, The Weather is more than just a feature. As the weather conditions directly determine the behaviors of the animals, it makes nature incredible change. The Rain can turn the terrain into a pond. Weather conditions are important elements that you have to be really careful.

FLOOD SYSTEM

When it rains for a time, low or pitch surfaces can be flooded. How much it will damage depends on rain type and how long it happens. You should be sure about your building is not built on a low surface. For now, this system is not physical because of optimization issues but we want to improve this system and unfortunately, it's not possible without Indiegogo campaign.

WIND SYSTEM

If the wind is strong enough, it can blow so many things away. Your items, your building, even your body. So when you build something, you must choose the right place or make your building strong. You must deal with the wind. If you are outside, trees or giant things can be a lifesaver. And don't forget, you can make the wind your friend and you can have fun with it.

EIGHT-PLAYER CO-OP

Connect with your friends through an endless adventure and challenge that will test more than your skill! Check the leaderboard to see where you rank around the world. If you don't care the leaderboard, it's not a problem. Just have fun!

ABOUT SMALLAND & INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN

TELL ME ABOUT SMALLAND

Smalland is a survival game that shrunk you and throws into small creatures' world without knowing why. Before you go after the questions, you must find a place, food and take care of your other needings. Because the terms of surviving have been changed and the world wants to eliminate you.

 

In totally dynamic world, you must survive with the creatures that have to survive just like you

Avoid being a meal for giant rabbits, mice, cats, squirrels or small creatures. Connect with your friends and join the magnificent adventures together.

IS IT JUST ANOTHER SURVIVAL GAME?!

Yes and no.

 

Generally, it's a survival game. If you don't take care of your needs, you'll die. But it's not all. We want to put things that we loved by other survival games and also what we want to see.

 

This concept provides us an incredible space. We could make a pretty spirited nature and use other animals that we don't often see. When it rains in game, nature becomes foggy and you hear the rain sound. It's not usually more than visual and atmosphere. But when you become small, rain can hurt you. You can see so many things that are affected by rain. And we can use all of these kinds of details.

 

So we want to break the rules and make an alternative survival game. We don't want to let you find comfort easily. The world must challenge you every time. When you think you're safe, things getting boring, the game should break the peace. And our ecosystem and concept are really helpful for this.

 

Of course, we don't say that the game keeps the same enthusiasm forever. But we can make it longer and fun with you. We've heard lots of brilliant ideas from people and we added some of them. We can say, there are lots of huge differences between other survival games.

THEN WHAT ARE THESE DIFFERENCES?

Downsizing, Ecosystem, Dynamic weather.

 

Downsizing, is not all about your downsizing. The game has been created based on this concept. For example, there are lots of foods around the map and normally they are big for you. So if you can reach an apple, you don't get hungry for a long time. But wind's or rain's effects can be terrible. Giant animals can easily catch you if you don't be careful.

 

Our another big difference is that you are feeling the vitality of life. But this happens during the day. If you are not ready for the night, that's meaning you can't see other days. We'll give more details about what happens when day becomes night. We are working on the ecosystem. It has not been implemented each one but when we look at the ants or bees, we see they are doing their jobs great. They are going to find foods and some of the ant colonies could be really aggressive.

 

So our best advice is when you build your house, you must be really careful. You don't want to be raided by ant colonies or don't want to be settled on the path of a rabbit chasing its prey.

Weather is really effective. We don't want to make it just a visual. It should be looking good of course, but it shouldn't be meanless. Temperature, wind's direction, and intensity, rain etc. are important things. What you're wearing, where you're settled when you're going to hunt. All of these are affected by weather.

CAN WE SAY THERE WILL BE ALTERNATIVE MAPS?

Yes! Our Indiegogo campaign will determine how soon it will happen! We think this concept can be used lots of types of maps. You would find yourself in really crowded neighboorhood or the top floor of the apartment. But our main goal is finishing current map until the game will be ready.

THEN TELL ME ABOUT YOUR INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN
