Games of Glory is a MOBA-crossover, inspired by different video game genres. It borrows its fundamentals from MOBAs and integrates the faster action controls and the flexibility in weapons choice of shooters. The persistent universe and social aspects are inspired by MMOs, and the opportunities for clone customization are drawn from Hack & Slash games. Games of Glory incorporates eSports as part of the setting, with players being able to join and create clubs, and choose different roles like star player or coach. ESports is at the heart of this experience and we hope to make it accessible to everyone!
The Games of Glory are the gladiator games of the Synarchy, the intergalactic empire controlled by the seemingly all-powerful Synarch. The Synarch imposes peace over all in his dominion, and protects them from the Exoi. The Games of Glory serve as an outlet for citizens to blow off steam as well as a medium to resolve large-scale disputes. The winners gain fame and money, as well as political influence.
