G.A.R.D. Realms LLC, The Time Machine is a project I started in 2011 with the idea of bringing back what I considered to be "real MMORPGs" to the ailing genre, bloated with disposable throwaway installments. In the midst of a recession, the project has suffered from an almost total lack of reliable funding until now. It wasn't until noticing the success other projects were seeing with much less shown and available to backers that I decided it would be criminal not to charge full-steam at an IndieGogo crowd sourcing campaign. GARD Realms Presents: An MMO based on the book from "H. G. Wells" called The Time Machine This classic novel written so many years ago by one of the founding fathers of Science Fiction comes to life and is ready for you to experience in H.G. Wells The Time Machine – It’s About Time. Utilizing the advanced technology of the top MMORG games that you love, GARD Realms makes it possible to travel through time the way The Time Traveller did in this epic tale. The pages of the book are only the beginning…. Come see what time has in store for you. We need your help getting started: All the funds raised go to the development of the BETA as a server, software and the coders pay for 1 year to get us an track to release the BETA then the full game. Any contributors will get a few stocks and the full game when it is out and for the life of the game! Higher lever contributors will get special visit trips to G.A.R.D. Realms as soon as we reach our goals and release the game past the beta stage.. The Impact Contributing will make the game a 1 year project as apposed to a 3 year if we have to do it with our own funds and equipment, we have what we need to do the 3 year plan already but can make allot more money on a 1 year plan and beat out the competition: This project will make allot of money and we can split portions of the profit to the contributors and any investors willing to help. We have a combined 3 year game making experience and a great team of developers and are all gamer's so we know what gamer's want. We are making our progress available to every on on Facebook and our website to excite every one and make sure we have a presence and every one will know when we are ready.

An unlimited World Working in hand with our crafting system, there are a multitude of time zones and a lot more on the way, we will keep cranking out the zones as long as the game is live.. Truly Unique Races In G.A.R.D. Realms LLC the playable races and breeds aren't confined to being purely graphical changes from one to the next. We follow the book we created the game off of and added a lot of new aspects to the races to make the game more unique and more customizable. Available Breeds · 1800 HumansConstituting the 1800s Time Travelers, 1800s Humans have the largest amount of customization available to them. AD 802701 Morlocks- Morlocks are humanoid creatures, said to have descended from humans, but by the 8,028th century have evolved into a completely different species, said to be better suited to their subterranean habitat. They are described as "ape-like", with little or no clothing, large eyes and grey fur covering their bodies. As a result of living underground, they have little or no melanin to protect their skin, and so have become extremely sensitive to light. The Morlocks' main source of food is the Eloi, another race descended from humans that lives above ground. The Morlocks treat the Eloi as cattle, and the Eloi do not resist being captured. However, because of the Morlocks' adaptations to darkness, the Eloi have an incredible fear of the dark and are terrified of being underground.. AD 802701 Eloi - The Eloi are the childlike, frail group, living abanal life of ease on the surface of the earth, while the Morlocks live underground, tending machinery and providing food, clothing and infrastructure for the Eloi. Each class evolved and degenerated from humans. The novel suggests that the separation of species may have been the result of a widening split between different social classes, a theme that reflects Wells's sociopolitical opinions. The main difference from their earlier ruler-worker state is that, while the Morlocks continue to support the world's infrastructure and serve the Eloi, the Eloi have undergone significant physical and mental deterioration. Having solved all problems that required strength, intelligence, or virtue, they have slowly become dissolute and naive. They are described as being smaller than modern humans, having shoulder-length curly hair, chins that ran to a point, large eyes, small ears, and small mouths with bright red thin lips. They are of sub-human intelligence, though apparently intelligent enough to speak, as they have a primitive language. They do not perform much work, and in the book and 1960 film when Weena falls into the river, none of the Eloi help her. While one initially has the impression that the Eloi people live a life of play and toil-less abundance, it is revealed that the Morlocks are attending to the Eloi's needs for the same reason a farmer tends cattle; the Morlocks use the Eloi for food. This is why there are no old people, and why the Eloi seem to fear the dark. Weena- Main female ELOI in the game. Other. Most the players are custom in the game with a large amount of custom items making an unlimited amount of players Funding Requirements and Milestones Here are a few items we're looking forward to demonstrating once we get to certain milestones.
