Marika Island is a battle royale game developed by Revelation Heroes Entertainment for the Nexus. Though based upon similar titles, Marika Island aims to be a title that provides a unique experience in an original setting. It was released on July 10th, 2019. The game is free to play, with cosmetic microtransactions. All new characters can only be earned through in game currency.
For eons, the island has existed outside of time and space, a completely unknowable location of eldritch origin that defies all natural laws. For the last few millenia, the island has been the personal playground of the Old God Khorn, who whisks away great warriors from their places of origin and forces them to fight and survive for his amusement. But as his power wanes, Khorn is more desperate than ever to feed off the bloodshed and carnage of his personal games.
Not only has Khorn grown more brazen in his abductions, but he has decided to change the rules, forcing his subjects to be reborn after each death and fight over and over again, rather than toying with them for his personal amusement before their inevitable deaths. So begin the games.
Season 1: Come a little closer
After abducting a new group of tributes, Khorn decides on the rules for his new 'games'. He also creates the Villa to ensure that the sacrifices have time to rest between bouts, so that they do not become to mentally drained to continue fighting for his amusement.
The few survivors left on the island proper band together, hiding in the recesses of the island and leaving behind clues that may help the new batch of Tributes to escape Khorn's wrath.
Marika Island is a first-person battle royale where up to 25 four man squads battle to the death. Each player selects a playable character (Referred to as 'Sacrifices' in game). No character may be selected twice in the same squad. All teams are then thrown out of a portal in the sky, with one player guiding the other three in a drop to the island.
Once on the island, players can scavenge for weapons, shields, and other items that is scattered around the island or in makeshift buildings created by previous survivors. Weapons can also be found in Mystery Boxes, strange relics that spawn random weapons, and in Loot Caches, chests buried by previous survivors that can be dug up to obtain legendary equipment or a characters unique weapon.
Unlike most Battle Royale games, Marika Island makes every effort to make melee combat just as viable as ranged combat, with melee weapons generally being stronger but more complicated to use, with the ability to block and parry with melee weapons.
If a player is downed, their allies can revive them. If a player is killed, they are still not out of the game. Their allies can pick up their fallen allies Totem, which spawns where they died (alongside a crate containing all their items), and burn it at a sacrifice altar in Khorn's name to have him bring them back. Other totems may be found around the island and burned at altars for aid.
Throughout the match, the game's safe zone will reduce in size around a random part of the map, forcing players into a smaller space. Players outside the safe zone will be assaulted by a field of energy which will eventually kill them unless they return to the safe zone. Players outside the safe zone receive a small speed boost as long as they moving towards the safe zone.
The last players alive win the match. If multiple players from a single squad are left alive, they are encouraged to kill each other, earning a small bonus to in-game currency if they succeed, though still winning regardless. All players are rewarded with in-game currency based on their performance, which can be used to buy cosmetics.
Marika Island also allows players to host their own custom lobbies or play offline with bots. Offline and peer hosted games can be modded with custom maps, gamemodes, weapons or characters as the player pleases.
Each character possesses a passive ability, a movement ability, an active ability, an ultimate ability and a unique weapon. All characters can climb a short distance up walls and other such obstacles. Ultimates charge over time and recharge faster when dealing damage.
All Season 1 characters are playable from the beginning.
Adam 361 The Defect Assault / 43yo / Male / Retired From A Land of War and Fear
One of thousands, Adam is a mass produced clone bred for war. He served his planet for 30 years, battling on the frontlines with a near flawless combat record, it was only when his commanding officer discovered that he held a rare genetic defect that he was discharged. 361's cells replicated at an unprecedented rate. Though he tried to argue that this made him a better asset, being a defect defeated the purpose of pure genetic cloning. His commanders informed him that his existence was a flaw, and would compromise his superiors authority. Disgusted by the poor judgement of his superiors, Adam fled, knowing that if he could not convince command of his worth he would be terminated by force. Going on the run, Adam started investigating the circumstances of his creation. But right as he began to scratch the surface of a conspiracy that possibly ran through the entire government, he vanished. Some say he was killed, others say he just picked a different fight.

Aeserius Deykin Luna III The Moon King Assault / 39yo / Male / Moon King From a Land of Adventure and Exploration
As a young man, Aeserius knew he was destined for greatness. Born on Earth, Aeserius parents were wealthy aristocrats, but he had no interest in his inheritance. He wanted a far greater prize. He wanted the moon. Throughout his younger years, he studied at the University of Greater America, earning a double degree in History and Medicine. Fresh out of college, Aeserius boarded the next shuttle to the moon and finally took the first real step towards his goal. But when he left the vessel that took him there, he couldn't help but be disappointed. Initial colonisation of the moon had been immensely successful; the early colonies had prospered under the guidance of the Earth's government. But as it always did, Earth had quickly become greedy, and what had once been a distant paradise had quickly devolved into yet another bland extension of it's predecessor. Aeserius knew he could return the Moon to it's glory, and he wasted no time in putting his plan to action. Rallying those who had been born on the Moon, Aeserius declared his new home a sovereign planet, and ordered those loyal to Earth to return home immediately. The Earthlings laughed at him. But Aeserius was mere inches from his goal, he would not be swayed now. Swiftly and mercilessly, he and his new army subjugated the Earthlings, forcing them into shuttles and returning them home with a message: If you seek freedom and prosperity, come to the moon. But only if you will obey the Moon King's rule.

When Mera was young, her parents died to the scourge of the vampyr. Orphaned and alone, Mera was taken in by the Sisterhood of Flaming Hearts, a sect of nuns who worshipped the Holy Flame and defended the church with fire and blade. She buried herself in her study and proved herself worthy of training to be a Holy Knight, an extension of the flames will. The day she swore her oath, the Flame in her church burned fiercer than ever before. The Nuns said it was a sign that she had been chosen by the will of the flame. By her eighteenth birthday, Mera's name was known throughout the land as one of the Holy Flame's most devout followers. She was the youngest of her order to ever lead her own convent, and under her watchful eye her nation flourished, free from the fear of the many evils that plagued the world. But when the Dark Lord returned, he quickly set his sights on her. He became obsessed with her, and made every effort to have her join him. But her faith never wavered until the very last moment, when the Dark Lord revealed a devastating truth. In that instant, she vanished, never to be seen again.
Holy Guardian Mera purges the wicked with the light of the holy flame. Whenever an ally is attacked while within four metres of Mera, the attacker becomes marked by flame.

Bobo The Psychic Gorilla Defender / 17yo / Male / Gorilla From a Land of Gorillas and Science
Bobo was born in captivity. He never particularly minded, but he did wonder about the world beyond his enclosure. For years, he was both experimented on and taught by his human handlers. From them he learned a great deal, and over time his intelligence increased exponentially. The day he spoke his first words, his handlers seemed overjoyed. But Bobo's fate lay elsewhere. During a raid by a mysterious shadow organisation, Bobo's enclosure was breached. Though he cared for his human friends, Bobo wasted no time in escaping, bowling over armed men as he went. When he made his way into the outside world, Bobo was confused to find Gorilla's everywhere. He had assumed that he was the only intelligent Gorilla around, but in the outside world, certain Gorilla's lived alongside Humans as comrades, friends, even family. Bobo was readily accepted by society, but he quickly learned why he had been kept apart from it so long: Bobo, and likely the rest of his family, held special power. He could feel the minds of others near him, and reach out and alter those minds. His power was both useful and dangerous, and Bobo swore to his new family and friends that he would use it only to benefit society. Bobo never had the opportunity to make good on that promise however, as he disappeared just a few days later.
Wild at Heart As a Gorilla, Bobo is capable of climbing much faster and higher than anybody else. He is also able to leap from one surface to another and hold himself in place with one hand, allowing him to shoot while perched on a wall. He is also capable of climbing and standing on surfaces others cannot, such as trees.
Leap Using his powerful limbs, Bobo launches himself high into the air. When he lands, he knocks down anybody next to him. If he hits a wall he can immediately grab on and start climbing. 10 second cooldown.

Vanishing Point Bobo uses his psychic power to create a bubble around the targeted area. While inside this bubble, his allies are completely invisible to everyone except their allies, and they make no noise. Firing or being touched while inside the bubble will break the bubble. Otherwise, the bubble lasts for a minute.
Mind Spike A pink gem that allows Bobo to focus his psychic power. It's primary fire unleashes a psychic bolt which ignores armour and instantly hurts the targeted enemy, but consumes a lot of ammo. Secondary fire releases a wave of force that pushes enemies back but deals very little damage. Ammo regenerates over time. Regenerates faster if Bobo is not under fire.

Xexanoth The Parasite Specialist / Unknowable / Genderless / Eldritch Being From an unknowable realm
Born before time itself, Xexanoth was once a powerful Eldritch god. Slowly moving throughout reality, consuming all in his path to meet some unknowable goal. After spending millenia with his brethren consuming galaxies and growing to near limitless power, Xexanoth was defeated by a mere mortal. This pitiful being pierced his flesh with metal from the stars, and ruptured his spirit with the tainted light. Stripped of his godlike power and shunned by his kin, Xexanoth was forced to take on a form far from befitting a being of his stature. Unable to consume the cosmos as he once did, Xexanoth now feeds off the pitiful lives of mortal creatures to regain his strength. Khorn dares to humiliate him by trapping him in this unworldly prison, but Xexanoth will have his revenge.
Brain Worm Xexanoth itself is a small parasite about the size of a football. When its host body is destroyed, the player takes control of the parasite itself and is forced to slither away until it can find a new host, either the corpse of a dead tribute or spawning a replica of its starting host after 30 seconds. While in its parasite form, Xexanoth moves faster and can slither up walls, but not jump, and it has very little health. If Xexanoth takes over a corpse it gains all their items. If Xexanoth possesses a corpse, it takes on their passive ability. Xexanoth will always wrap around its hosts face.
Forced Movement Xexanoth forces its host's body to move in an unnatural way, crumpling in on itself and falling to the ground before leaping upwards. 10 second cooldown.
Release your Mind Xexanoth spits a glob of mind numbing acid to make potential hosts more receptive to its will. Affected enemies take a small ampount of damage and become plagued with hallucinations of Eldritch horrors which periodically cause them to scream in anguish, revealing their location. Can be cured by an ally. 6 second cooldown.
Destruction of Form Xexanoth pushes its host to their limits, causing them to move faster and jump higher. After twenty seconds or if the ultimate is activated again, the host body will grotesquely bloat and explode. Xexanoth may immediately spawn a new host body if they wish.
Will of the Parasite A shred of Xexanoth's former body, the Will of the Parasite is a large strip of flesh that covers the right arm and ends in a terrifying mass that can be used to maul opponents. Using alternate fire will make the weapon stretch forwards about ten meters to pull distant foes towards Xexanoth. This is the only weapon Xexanoth keeps if it's host dies.
Default Xexanoth's default appearance is a pale worm like creature. Its default host is a young woman in her mid 20's with dark black hair and glassy, dead eyes. She is wearing a dirt covered red jacket over a navy blue T-Shirt with blue jeans and black sneakers.
Pharoah's Curse Xexanoth is a dark grey creature with many legs. It's host is a male mummy wrapped in pale yellow bandages with glowing red eyes and decayed flesh.
xX_Jormungandr_Xx The Unstoppable Hacker Specialist / 31yo / Male / Hacker From a Land of Technology and Progress
Records of Jormungandr are scarce and vague. The first known use of the handle was when it appeared buried in the code of the National Bank of America's servers. Shortly after, employees discovered that millions of dollars had been discreetly diverted from their clients accounts to seemingly nowhere. Early speculation assumed Jormungandr was one of the banks employees, though this was later disproven. Almost a year later, several classified documents belonging to the highest levels of government surfaced on the black market. When this came to public attention, a virus activated, replacing all information on government computers with the image of a snake eating it's own tail. These attacks have made Jormungandr one of the most sought after individuals in the world, though many believe it must be a group of hackers. In truth, Jormungandr is one man, who seeks nothing more than to prove that he is unstoppable. Or even, as he prefers; inevitable.
Infinity Whenever Jormungandr calls out an enemy, they become highlighted. Highlighted enemies appear to all allies, and Jormungandr can see their exact health values, as well as their ultimates charge. Only three enemies may be highlighted at a time. If an enemy is not seen by Jormungandr or any of his allies for 5 seconds, the highlight will disappear.
Parkour Jormungandr mantles objects faster than other characters, and slides over small objects. He is also capable of wall-running. His normal ground slide is also faster than other characters.
Surveillance Jormungandr throws out a stationary camera. Whenever an enemy passes one of these cameras, the feed is transmitted directly to Jormungandr. Only 3 cameras may be active at a time. 20 second cooldown.
Hack the Planet After channeling for one second, Jormungandr hacks the targeted enemy, removing their HUD and disabling their abilities for ten seconds.
Iron Fang An axe said to be capable of cleaving mountains in half. Secondary fire will throw the axe, creating a small explosion of frost where it lands. Secondary fire will make it return to the user, dealing damage to anybody it passes on the way.

He wears a green Hawaiian shirt with orange floral patterns and beige khakis shorts. He wears brown sandals with white socks.

But the next morning, she was nowhere to be found.
