Battle Royale Redefined
WELCOME TO INSULA
Welcome to Insula, the BR, that's not a BR. Insula is moreso, a creative vision, of what a BR could be. While it is based on the primary underlying concepts of the BR genre, we have strived to give it depth, and turn it into an experience you will truly remember. We have removed the more blatant and cumbersome mechanics and replaced them with system designs that we believe will give you, the player, a more engaging experience... a sense of purpose.
Insula is not just a battlefield where a bunch of players will duke it out for bragging rights. It has history, it has a life of its own. It is a living world with many experiences waiting to be discovered. It is beautiful, it is primal, it is deadly. It just also happens to be the locale of a great warriors battle. Will you be that warrior?
Welcome to Insula, we hope you enjoy our vision!

World BuildingWe know that people are visual, and that sometimes words and descriptions just can't do it justice, so here are some quick environment shots as we bring the play area and level assets into the production build. We will include some building interiors, building exteriors,...
BEAUTIFUL BUT DEADLY
The floating island of Insula is both beautiful and extremely deadly. The various biomes that make up the islands' ecosystem are home to all manner of frightful beasts. These creatures may be territorial, short tempered, or flat out hungry... some just kill for sport.
The environment itself also poses it's own array of threats. There are no shortages of danger here on Insula. Happy trails settler!
Then there's the pyramid. No one knows what it is, or where it came from. But when that thing appeared... the whole place went to hell.
