Today, the German developer is excited to unveil their next big project, an alternate take on 19th century Europe, where the greatest minds of their time — historical and literary icons like Nikola Tesla, Dr. Jekyl/Mr. Hyde, and Thomas Edison — must band together to stop a powerful occult force. Fog & Silver was awarded an Epic MegaGrant, and is in active development.
Today, NUKKLEAR GmbH, the development studio whose credits include games like Destroy All Humans, Comanche, and co-developer with Funcom on the upcoming Dune survival game, announced that they have been awarded an Epic MegaGrant, worth $25,000 USD, to develop their original IP Fog & Silver.
The Epic MegaGrant is awarded to game developers who are innovating in the 3D graphics space. In the dark and fantastical world of Fog & Silver, NUKKLEAR has created a concept full of highly detailed and realistic environments and rich narrative, worthy of funding from one of the biggest companies in the gaming industry. While the game is still in development, the team at NUKKLEAR is working hard to bring this concept to life.
Set against the backdrop of an alternate 19th century Europe, the world of Fog & Silver combines dark and mysterious supernatural forces with highly advanced technology. But the rift between followers of the occult and followers of science runs deep, and a powerful force threatens to stoke the flames of conflict and throw the world into calamity.
Players take on the role of a fully-customizable Exalted, tasked with bringing together the world’s greatest minds — scholars, inventors, scientists, and wielders of great supernatural powers — to battle against the monstrous horrors that have been unleashed upon the world. As players recruit more of The Exalted, they will unlock powerful abilities to unleash in intense combat scenarios, and branching storylines that bring more life to the world of Fog & Silver.
The Flying Ferdinand, a massive, multi-functional airship, will serve as a hub for the team of historical and fictional icons, and the main mode of transportation on their global adventure. Players can use the onboard crafting station to upgrade their own abilities, and those of the ship, whose arsenal can be called upon to turn the tide of battle.
Like with the characters in the game, the environments will be a mix of historical and literary locals. Players will journey with their team of Exalted everywhere from the dungeons of the Tower of London, to the ritzy carriages of the Orient Express. Each area has been touched by technological advancements and the hands of the occult, making them feel distant yet familiar. Missions are dripping with rich detail, with secrets begging to be discovered.
