How long will the founders’ edition be available for sale?
That is still under discussion. It will undoubtedly be available until the start of early access stage. We are debating if we should keep it available after that or not.
Is there a story in the game?
There are various quests and objectives in addition to random encounters. The central premise is that you are the chief of a small Native American tribe fighting to take back your people’s land and lead the tribes in the process. You create your narrative in this dynamic world.
Is the game based on historical accuracy?
This Land Is My Land is not a simulation game. It unfolds at a specific place that represents a time when the Native Americans were cornered in making a tough choice of assimilating with the foreign civilization or perish into history.
Our goal is to provide you with a Native American experience, unlike any other from a different perspective of the typical frontier game. The enemy will learn, adapt, and adjust their tactics from the actions you make and keep each playthrough dynamic and unique. They will remember and predict player actions and continually pose a threat to taking back your lands. That is the kind of experience we are delivering to you with This Land Is My Land.
Why Native Americans?
At Game Labs, we always try to bring unique perspectives into the games we create. This Land Is My Land, fills the lack of a Native American perspective, allowing you to become a fearless Native American warrior. We understand this is a sensitive topic for many, but we still took on the challenge to create it, and we can reassure you it is not about who was right or evil or promoting stereotypes. We are immersing you in a unique game world.
What tribe does the player represent?
There are no set specific tribes in the game.
How did you go about writing a story from the perspective of a Native American?
We always do extensive research on subjects we chose to make sure our games are relevant to the context they cover. That includes the active involvement of the community during development. In terms of the story, This Land Is My Land lets you create your narrative, and find your way in the living, changing world. Due to the nature of the game’s systems, each playthrough will unfold differently because the AI will also adapt to the actions and decisions of the player. The geographical landscapes will remain the same, but camps, cities, mines, patrols, animals, hideout, allies, and many gameplay aspects will be different for every player.
How big is the map?
The map is over 100 mile square playable area.
Will there be character customization in the game?
There will be some customization features but not one that will change the looks and sex of the character.
Can we play as a female character?
There are no plans for female characters at this moment.
Will there be more melee weapons? Spears, war hammers, more knives, etc.
Melee weapons are currently used for stealth kills. We like the idea of switching your primary weapon to kill or stun by using knives, tomahawks, or clubs. However, this is not in the works yet and will remain under consideration.
Will there be body armor?
No, we do not have plans for body armors.
Will there be enemy tribes?
