    What is it?
    Tolroko is a John Carter ( you know, that epic ancient scifi saga that inspired Starwars, Avatar, and just about every other scifi saga the last century ) inspired open world game. The goal is to create a random generated scifi/fantasy world much like Mars in the Barsoom books. The name Tolroko comes from the name of the planet in the game (Tolroko is the second planet orbiting the planet Toldaro, which is the third planet orbiting the star Tol, yes why not invent a star system and language for describing its composition)...I'll explain later *::)

    What does it look like?
    Some early screenshots from the project.

    Morning on Tolroko..

    Flying over a small settlement.



    Tell me more!
    And yea we are building a fresh new engine for this project, built using our game engine construction kit ZeroFps. The game world is generated and streamed from a central server supporting multiple players ( it works much in the same way Terraria does ).

    In the future we hope to have John Carter like flyers and other kinds of vehicles to help you explore the world. The players will be able to trade with the randomly generated cities and settlements spread across the desert.

    Feature wish list - These are main features we dream about at night.
    * Huge procedurally generated Barsoom-like world.
    * Player & Npc controlled physics driven Flyers & other vehicles.
    * Huge procedurally generated cities & smaller settlements.
    * Trade goods between cities in an Elite-like manner with the help of your Flyer.
    * Pirate hideouts.
    * Pirates attacking trade lanes.
    * Multiple intelligent races and tribes.
    * Reputation system, earn reputation for different factions by trading and missions.
    * Diplomacy, unite all the tribes on the planet to bring piece on Tolroko and ultimately win the game.

    The outfit the player wears looks something similar to the star trek outfits.

    looks pretty nice really, for 3+ years of development you certainly have done some mighty nice progress!
