Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
This list will be updated without notice to reflect the most current and accurate notes of the game, website, and team. Check back frequently to keep yourself informed.
What is Isles of Eventide?
A project early in development, we intend it to be an online multiplayer animal roleplaying game. You will be able to create and customize animal characters from a set of three species (horse, feline, and canine), explore and experience the vast open world setting, and make new friends in our community.
Who runs Isles of Eventide?
Bloodstream Studios owns, maintains, and oversees the development of Isles of Eventide, while a small team of volunteer moderators assists in community related problems.
What is Isles of Eventide being made from?
Unity3D, Photoshop, SAI, Blender, Maya; various free or paid for services. As we are still in early development, the exact tools we are using change over time. Once the final release is out there will be a proper credit to the tools used in development.
What playable animals are there in Isles of Eventide?
Initially you will be able to play as a feline, a canine, or an equine.
Can you add [insert species here] as a playable character?
It is the desire of Bloodstream Studios to eventually add more playable species, but this would only happen well after the game has been released and stabilized! We are not going to disclose which species those may be. However we will never add humanoids.
Will there be items/accessories for my character to wear?
Yes! Some accessories may even prove useful for your characters, adding to your stats and making daily survival, or fights, easier!
Will there be pets/familiars?
Yes, you will be able to obtain companions. Their exact functions at this time are still being discussed.
What does the world look like?
It is an expansive and beautiful archipelago formed by an old volcano. Each isle has its own ecosystem.
Can my computer handle the game?
We can not offer minimum requirements for being able to play the game at this time. We will have many levels of rendering quality to allow people with older and weaker computers to run it. You WILL need a very strong computer to run it at full quality. We will know more about exact and ideal system requirements at a later date.
Will there be PvP/player versus player?
Not upon the initial release of the game. It may be considered in future updates.
Is there a back-story, or a history, to how the world came to be?
Yes, however we do not want to ruin all of the fun! You will find out when you play the game.
What is the release date?
There is no set release date for the game, as it is difficult for an independent studio with minimal funding to predict that with any accuracy.
Will there be presets (a pre-designed/custom texture material for your character)?
There will be a significant amount of beautiful markings, layered markings, and multi-color options in the process of creating a character. It will be easy for you to create your unique character without a preset!
That said: yes! There will be presets. Initially they will be obtained through contests, as we do not intend to open up presets to the public for a while.

Can I be a part of the team?
We appreciate your interest in joining our team! The need for moderators is limited and when we do feel it necessary to hire more mods, we will have a system in place for applications. If we need more assistance with things on the development end, we will put a bulletin up. Please do not PM the staff asking to be hired.
How much does the game cost?
The base game will be free to play. There are planned expansions and features that you will be able to buy to enhance the experience and help contribute to the support of continued work on the game and website!
Where do I report broken rules and bugs?
No game out yet, no need to report bugs! That said if you need to report a user on our forums, you can use the "Report Post" option found in the cog-wheel (next to the thumbs up) in every post, or send a direct message/personal message to ONE moderator with a link to the problem with unedited evidence.
Will there be another Kickstarter? Have you considered [insert crowdfunding site here]?
We are discussing future possible crowdsource campaigns at this time, but we can not yet tell when we plan to begin funding again. This subject is being given considerable thought and if you have any suggestions regarding how we could have done the first kickstarter better, please send a direct message/personal message to Misne
Things are quiet. Are you still in development?
Yes, we are still in development as of August 2019.
Why don't you post progress if you are still in development?
We don't believe in releasing any content to the public that we ourselves aren't okay with seeing. Our team does not see a point in showing off a model that we plan on redoing, or is not done, knowing full well our well-meaning userbase will point out things we have already discussed. Not to say we aren't open to creative input, but we simply aren't at a stage yet where we feel we can appropriately apply the creative input of you, our player.
