OUR MISSION

Samdosoft set out to move the gaming industry forward on a multitude of fronts. Samdosoft's ambition is to provide high-quality content in the VR ecosystem and thus boost VR adoption. More broadly, take a stand against harmful monetization responsible for the erosion of good game design. Samdosoft aims to lead by example, offering fresh ideas and innovation.

PRODUCT

Archgate: Pride & Accomplishment, a VR MMORPG, is designed from ground up for VR, further featuring:

- third-person Souls-like combat;

- ultra-high comfort, even during long play sessions;

- super-cute toy-scale graphics (in VR, your hero looks like a 35 cm/14 inch tall moving action figure);

- introducing the roleplay-as-a-service concept (meaning, Samdosoft provides professional game masters and voice actors to interact with the game world on the fly to spice things up, to keep the game fresh and unpredictable)

- deep social gameplay (various political systems, espionage, infiltration, ...);

- permadeath regions;

- designed to be a platform for content creators and reality show for their viewers;

- heavy emphasis on player individuality (single-shard server infrastructure, unique items)

- monthly subscription business model (limited number of active subscriptions);

- 3 years in development.
