Drop Fake is focusing on creating a multiplayer sandbox strategy game with an interesting mechanic. Katherine de León stated that she likes to make games where there are as many unique stories as there are players, which should tell us a lot about the idea behind the upcoming game. The current idea is for the game to be free, easily accessible, with no pay-for-power or pay-to-win options.
