The page is dedicated to preliminary information on Identity's development and story.


What is Identity?[edit | edit source]

Identity is a modern-day open-world MMORPG for PC and Mac with complete freedom to do almost anything you can imagine at any time in first or third person views. Live as an honest civilian, a criminal, police officer, paramedic and many more. There are no levels or skill grinding, but talent and perk progression so that it’s the actions of you, not your character, which matter most.

  • An enormous online and persistent world controlled in almost every aspect by the players living within it.
  • Player-driven gameplay and economy with dozens of jobs and epic careers.
  • Action and fun around every corner with a player police force, gangs, cartels, businesses and more.
  • More casual games than we can list, from karaoke and cinemas to paintball matches and more.
  • Play on the official servers or host your own with your own rules and options.
  • No subscription fees and never pay-to-win.

Identity has been under development by only a few people and only for a few months. In that time we've gone far and done things that have never been seen in a video game before; Identity is already revolutionary, and we're excited to see how far we can take the technology and gameplay when we have the support of you as a backer!

Welcome to the official Identity website! This website is our temporary home while our studio of web ninjas finishes up the new website, but we've got just about everything you need.

Identity is a new game from Asylum Entertainment, the guys who brought you the world's most-played Altis Life. In a nutshell, Identity is an absolutely open and free MMORPG world where you're able to be and do just about anything you can imagine. There's something for everyone in a world with hundreds of other people all around you. Live a life of crime, justice, business or leisure where you truly can make a name for yourself and change the world you're a part of.

We're just getting started, but with the incredible support of our awesome new community we've raised the funds we needed to get the ball rolling and, as of the time I'm writing this, development is now going into full swing! It's our goal to build Identity with minimal outside support from game publishers so that we can retain complete control of development without having to cut corners to save money. Because of this, we're continuing the crowd funding we started on Kickstarter right here on our official website. With the continued support of you, our community, we'll be able to not only create the awesome game we've all been dreaming of but we'll be able to make it even better!

As we progress in funding we're going to reward you with interesting and exciting stretch goals. That's new features and such that aren't otherwise able to make it into our first release. If you haven't earned your passport stamp yet, check out the awesome rewards you can get in-game on our Pledge page.

Once again I want to say thank you to one of the greatest communities I've ever had the chance to be a part of. It's you who are making Identity the best game it can be and in return we at Asylum vow to work with our backers in complete transparency. We're going to be updating you regularly with what's going on behind the scenes, discussing some of the cool mechanics that make Identity work and of course sharing screenshots and videos when we have more to show.

Finally, I want to invite you all to stop by our forums where you can chat with the development team and share any ideas you might have yourself for Identity!
