In the first in a series of blog posts on the Ashes of Oahu site, the development team reveals what players can expect when the game launches. The series begins with "What is Ashes of Oahu" and introduces readers to the basic elements of the game, some of its unique lore and what makes it different than other RPGs on the market. Subsequent articles will "deep dive" into specific topics and features.

Specifically, we drew upon the stories and culture of the Hawaiian Islands for our narrative inspiration. How could we bring some of the powerful histories of the pre-colonial Pacific islands into a post-apocalyptic future? What would a post-apocalypse even look like in a paradise? Our developers have traveled to the island, consulted with experts, and studied extensively to ensure that these considerations make Ashes of Oahu a dramatic fictional departure from other games in this genre.
