Aderyn’s Cradle ("Cradle" for short) is the next step in fantasy first-person RPG gameplay. You are the Oracle, the last link to a long-lost god. Your adventure through the Cradle will force you to grapple the polarizing forces of the Holy Trifecta: humanity, nature and the gods. Throughout your journey, you will uncover the history of Aderyn’s Cradle piece by piece through completing quests and puzzles, fighting anomalies, and exploring the natural world and intricate ruins of the Aderian civilization. To complete your mission, you must harness the power of the five forces through Mana, the lifeblood of Anora, in order to perform powerful magic. Along the way, you will fight the corrupted creatures who would use these same forces against you. Together with the Guides, you will ultimately bring Aderyn’s Cradle back to Anora and restore balance to the lost land.
Cradle will immerse you in smooth, realistic, intuitive combat, so that progression through our intellectually rich and emotionally resonant narrative campaign is as exciting as can be. We don’t just want you to buy our game; we want you enjoy it enough to play from start to finish, and again, and again, until you’ve experienced every piece of the lore, the environment, and their rewards.
This project is an ambitious one for an independent studio with no large backers, which can only offer royalty checks and company shares as compensation for the hard work of creating this game. In order to meet the goal of a 2017 release, we must succeed through crowdfunding alone at this early stage of production. Nonetheless, production will not halt even if our crowdfunders do not meet their bottom line. Thanks to the dedication of the core team of Mojo's leaders, and their determination to see this project through, production will continue on the face of financial setbacks. Without proper funding, however, the pace of production will be slow, and the 2017 release surely pushed back.
We won’t cut any corners, nor settle for a minimum viable product. Our goal, In short, is to bring you the very best of everything, from visuals and mechanics to story and sound. We are a company made for gamers, by gamers. With Cradle, we aim not just to create something fun, but to drive the medium of videogames forward as an art form. We hope you’ll share our vision!

Use of Funds
We are coming to Indiegogo to ask for funding to build a proper vertical slice ofAderyn’s Cradle which will give a more accurate view of gameplay. What will this “vertical slice” look like? It’ll be a section of our Icelands open world environment, complete with demonstrations of all main in-game elements. Through it, we will showcase our combat, weapon augment application, lore, an environment-based movement puzzle, and more! Once this vertical slice is done, we will be expanding our crowdfunding to encompass all remaining funds needed to finish the game.
Specifically, we will be using the funds received from the current IndieGoGo campaign to create in-game assets and to compensate freelance artists for the work we need to finish the vertical slice. Additionally, these funds will be used to cover the costs of software, technology and other enterprise applications that are needed to get the job done.
Our plan is simple: to use the funds bestowed by all of you who are already part of the vision of Cradle to create a clear and full showing of it so as to share its vision with the rest of the gaming community and with potential investors. If we have clear communication of the game's vision alongside this key vertical slice, we are confident that we'll be able to secure the rest of the funds needed to finish Aderyn's Cradle.
