What is ReROLL?
ReROLL is PIXYUL’s first game, It’s an ambitious project with an unusual approach, the game is an Online Open World Survival Action RPG, maybe we could call this an OOWSARPG ? But it’s really more a Crowdfunded Persistent Online Open World Survival Action RPG, so that would make it a CPOOWSARPG…!!! It’s probably easier if you start by watching this video
and then afterward check-out this page
which gives you an introduction to the Skills System, Crafting, Exploration & the Reality System Sync.
Please, take the time.
The game will have an “isometric view”. Since this term isn’t very well known, the best examples to give would be games like: Diablo, Titan Quest or Path of Exile. This is a traditional view (also called camera) for Action RPG

What’s the gameplay?
The goal is to survive and have fun in the sandbox. Everything in the game is geared toward this, to do so we’re pushing three main gameplay pillars:
It’s up to you to decide how you want to play and how you want to balance between each one in the game.
So this thing about the drones and…
Sorry to interrupt, but the answer you’re looking for is probably below in the Drone-Sourcing section.
Why not make a MMO with this gigantic world ?
It’s an awesome idea and we’ve been dreaming about this.
It may be in ReROLL’s future, who knows? But not now, it would be adding an incredibly ambitious goal on top of something already ambitious enough.
It’s important to break down and tackle challenges one after the other; in the meantime that’s one of the reason why the game is online and persistent from the start.
These are good steps toward what could be one day an MMO.
When can I start playing ?
We expect to deliver the first playable BRICK
Mid-2015. We will need your comments and suggestions on the different alphas we will make available before the first BRICK is delivered. Giving us your feedback will have a direct impact on the quality, so the more you participate the better are our chances to deliver something memorable. Obviously a lot of parameters has to be taken into account to reach the Mid-2015 delivery date. The amount of money we’ll be able to raise will have a direct impact on quality and production timing.
In a nut shell, BRICK 1
is a first playable part of the world (25 sq/km) which is fun to play and contain a first iteration of all the gameplay mechanics we want for the subsequent releases. The Area is Downtown Montreal.
I’ve checked the shop, you’re selling Characters ?
Yes and no, we’re selling Game Packages which includes:
- Lifetime access to all of ReROLL BRICK’
s & updates for the Single Player & COOP gameplay modes.
- A character with some equipment and skills.
If you want to know more about the skills, how you learn them, etc…you should check out this page
The more money I spend, the more equipped and skilled my character is, it sounds like a a Pay 2 Win !
ReROLL is not a Pay 2 Win for a number of reasons, chief among this: This is not a Free2Play and there is no PVP therefore there is no unfair advantages toward someone else. No one is going to “beat” you because he spent more money in the game.
Equally important, nothing is locked in the game. You can start with a Basic Character and learn any skills and become whoever you want.
Our goal is to make the game fun for all types of players and characters.
If I support you: How do I get my copy of the game ?
We will send you a link to download the game and a key when it’s ready
Will the game be available on Steam ?
Too early to say
What languages ReROLL will be available in?
The only two languages we can commit now are English and French. Depending on how much money we’re able to raise and the interest from the community we will look into other languages of course.
What are the system requirements ?
It’s too early in development to give hardware requirements. Our target is to run on old machines and to support a wide variety of hardware. We will be announcing the system requirements at a later date, so stay tuned for an announcement down the road.
Will there be a DRM ?
Not in the usual sense BUT you’ll need an internet connection to fully appreciate the game.
We know how controversial this can be for some of you but it’s at the heart of the fantasy we’re building, especially the Reality System Sync
These gameplay mechanics are very MMO-esque and it needs data input to simulate reality.
Now we will allow you to play offline and there will be no DRM preventing you to do so
but the experience will be downgraded (and potentially seriously downgraded if you can’t connect at all).
To make sure there is no ambiguity: We’re primarily building an online game. Offline capacities will be a back-up solution.
How about Mac or Linux version ?
Too early to say, sorry, we can only commit to Windows support for now. Hopefully our budget will allow us to expand.
How about other platforms (Consoles, Tablets etc…)
We need to secure first the budget for the PC version which is our starting point. If opportunities arise, be assured we will look into them.
