Game Overview: Ashes of Oahu

Q: For those who aren’t familiar with Ashes of Oahu, can you give them a brief overview of the game?

A: Ashes of Oahu is an open world, post-apocalyptic RPG shooter where you tap into the power of the spirit world to liberate the Hawaiian island of Oahu from the army that occupies it. It is inspired by native Hawaiian stories, traditions, and beliefs but with a unique fictional twist that brings in ghosts, raiders, and gods. Explore 25 sq/km of beautiful locations throughout Oahu, Hawaii and craft items from Hawaiian resources you find throughout the island. There are four distinct factions to work for or against. We have over 75,000 lines that create a massive and engaging narrative where choices truly matter and can lead to any one of over 100 different endings. Guns take on new and amazing powers thanks to the Magical Weapon Mod System.

 

 

Q: What was the inspiration behind Ashes of Oahu?

A: We wanted to build a post-apocalyptic world that was beautiful instead of dead and brown. We also built the game with a passion for all things Hawaii.

Q: What makes Ashes of Oahu unique compared to other RPGs?

A: The combination of magic and weapons makes for a very unique style of gameplay. Which factions you work with will shape your skills, unlocking a very unique experience to the type of player you are.

Q: What are some of the fun skills, abilities, and powers gamers will be excited about?

A: The powers of the gods are really fun in the game. There are movement-based powers like bird or shark farm along with elemental type powers like lightning or volcano. There are spirit-based powers that even let you take over another body.

Q: Customization looks to be a big part of Ashes of Oahu between factions, endings, and narrative. Why was this so important as you developed Ashes of Oahu?

A: Having a world that is shaped by your decisions was a critical part of our design. We tried to think about how players might approach many of the different missions in the game and allow for multiple ways to complete them based on the different gameplay styles. Ashes of Oahu is a game where the player is the fulcrum around which the world revolves.

Q: Have you received any feedback from the Hawaiian community about the game? Curious how it has been received.

A: In speaking with some elder Kapuna, they really liked the idea of showing off Hawaii, its rich history and stories to the younger generations. There is a lot to know about this beautiful part of the world and its people. We also spoke with a number of native expert Hawaiians to get feedback about what was okay to talk about and what we should change. This has been extremely important in making sure we show the correct respect to the native Hawaiian culture and beliefs.
