REDEFINING A GENRE
A NEW GAMEPLAY BRAND
MAN IN THE ARENA is not just a game.
It's a gameplay brand and franchise that will redefine the Battle Royale genre.
Its goal is to deliver one of the most definitive multiplayer experiences of this decade.
Bringing major innovation to both the Core Game Loop and classic Moment-to-Moment Shooter Mechanics, the MITA gameplay brand is creating a truly unique and captivating player experience.
Tying the core loop and gameplay mechanics together is the brands overarching allegorical themes and meta game, that aims to inspire players world-wide to replicate the in-game attributes required for success in their everyday lives.
CORE GAME LOOP
A PURPOSE-DRIVEN JOURNEY
We are taking the player experience from aimless wondering - to a purpose-driven journey. Central to the gameplay brand, is a choose-your-own-adventure style core game loop that requires players to continually decide what path they will take through the games unfolding narrative.
It's no longer about just about staying alive, it's about moving forward and achieving your goals. The core game loop brings meaning and purpose to the player experience, as players literally embark on a purpose-driven journey throughout the world.
To achieve this, unlike the unpredictable flow and random variables that characterize the current Battle Royale genre, players are given strategic foresight enabling them to focus on tactical execution of long range plans. This leads to an unparalleled emergent narrative experience for both players and spectators alike.
TACTICAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT WITH DYNAMIC REAL-TIME CONTROL
We are changing player's mindset from looting & savaging to tactical resource management. Our moment-to-moment gameplay has been crafted to reinforce and support our core game loop, equipping and facilitating the player on their purpose-driven journey.
We bring subtle yet powerful innovations to the classic Shooter mechanics creating a truly innovative and engaging player experience. Players' primary focus is on collecting, allocating and dynamically managing the games key consumable resources which have been fully integrated into all moment-to-moment mechanics. The execution of a particular strategy is no longer dependent on the players loadout or loot items, but rather how they manage and deploy their available resources.
A TRANSFORMATIONAL QUEST
It's time to bring the hero's journey to competitive multiplayer and move beyond the basic gladiatorial arena theme of PUGB, APEX, Warzone, & Fortnite.
Why am I in this world? Why is my playable space reducing? Why are people trying to kill me? The current genre provides very superficial answers to these questions and only loosely connects the underlying narrative with the core game loop and moment-to-moment mechanics.
MITA integrates theme with gameplay mechanics in way that has never been done before. We are creating a competitive narrative adventure with the core game loop acting as an allegory for mankind’s timeless pursuit of wisdom and high-achievement. Players learn the necessary personal attributes one must possess to attain such things.
The moral argument we present is simple but powerful, which is, to be successful in the game, just as in life, you must constantly set goals and then actively work to achieve those goals. Success comes by progressive realizing small goals throughout the entire core game loop.
