Hi all! We humble indie devs at Wizard Games are working on a new game called Guns Royale! It's a multiplayer battle-royale style game kinda like the Hunger Games or Playerunknown's Battlegrounds where all players start at the same time and whoever can find the best gear and survive to be the last player standing wins. However this one is from a top-down perspective and designed specifically for mobile. Should be a lot of fun!

Please check out this sneak peak early gameplay vid and sound off with your thoughts and comments.

Augmented Reality!?!?
Check out this early footage of AR in Guns Royale!


Weapons

There are four different categories of weapons: Pistol, submachine gun, shotgun and rifle. Players are only able to carry one of each type of weapon at a time. All players start with the most basic pistol and nothing else. Pistols have infinite ammo, but do very little damage. Submachine guns generally have lots of ammo with a high fire rate, but lack high power. Shotguns do massive damage at close range with a lower ammo capacity. Rifles are higher damage weapons with mid-range ammo capacity and a decent fire rate. Weapons vary in effectiveness based on type and attachments making for hundreds of gun variations!

Clothing
There are five clothing "areas": Head, face, torso, legs and feet. Each item of clothing affects armor, visibility, speed and/or ammo carrying capacity. Finding gear to pad your amor stats is vital to surviving fire fights with other players. Improved visibility stats moves the game camera slightly away from the player's avatar revealing more of the game map improving awareness of close by competitors.

Stats Info
Each weapon or article of clothing has a unique stat set. The below info screen is shown during the game tutorial and is then also visible at any time in the game options menu. There are three levels of item rarity represented by the colour grey, blue and purple. Purple gear is the rarest and most effective while grey is the most basic.


Health Packs, Grenades and Backpacks

Health Packs
Once picked up health packs can be used at any time to restore partial health. It is best to take shelter when using health packs as healing takes place over time and is not instantaneous. Collecting as many health packs as possible gives the player a much better chance of staying in the game longer.

Grenades
Grenades are a one-tap weapon that do massive area damage. When the grenade button is pressed the player avatar will automatically lob the grenade in the direction of the nearest enemy. Grenades are a great way to target large groups or breakup the combat. If you see one coming your way, run!

Backpacks
Backpacks affect the carrying capacity for grenades and health packs. They also can grant the player a higher ammo capacity for all guns. Initially players are only able to carry a maximum of one grenade and one health pack with no ammo bonus. Each backpack has different stats enabling the player to carry varying amounts of health packs, grenades and ammo.

Character Customization
Here's the screen we're working on for the character customization. The idea is that you press one of the buttons and it opens up a window full of choices for each clothing category. As you can see the player will be able to change quite a bit about their look going onto the battlegrounds. We'll have tons of unlockables and fun items to keep the game interesting.

I'd definitely purchase this. I'm hooked on PUBG and having a mobile game that's based on a similar premise would be ideal.

How big is the map?

Glad you're excited! The map we're working on is really large. We're trying to hit that sweet spot where you can do lots of running around/hiding and collecting gear but still have a chance of running into people for some forced combat.
