TumbleStone, the game

TumbleStone is a First Person Multiplayer Action video game in an heroic fantastic universe where magic is everywhere. The gameplay features full destruction of the environment which promises unique matches.

Precisely, at the start of the game, the player chooses a hero among others with different spells and passive skills which is the key to a richer gameplay and to develop many tactics. Next, the player chooses a map on the mythological planet of Tryon which proposes different primary and secondary objectives. Each match can be multiplayer (PVPVE). At the start of the map, the hero is level 0. Then, during the game, the player kills enemies to collect TumbleStones and gain levels. Each time the hero gains a level, it can learn a new spell or improve another one in order to intensify the epic battles waiting for you. The action is orchestrated by an original music composed for the game.
