Patch Notes: The Game is a satirical top-down multiplayer twin-stick shooter with a new patch coming out every ten seconds!
Patch Notes: The Game is our satirical baby. We play tons of different games where the developers continue to patch and patch and patch the game, attempting to balance, but really just end up making the OP guy more OP. That's what Patch Notes: The Game is all about. It starts out balanced, but with each patch, each player changes. Every patch effects the gameplay while still keeping the core of what the game is about: killing your friends when you are an overpowered, unbalanced mess.
The game right now is in a prototype state. We have all the base mechanics set up and some great patches in there, but there is still much to be done. We want to put in more levels that are larger, have obstacles, and really add to the experience. We also want to add tons of more patches that really make the game completely crazy such as:
- Cannot move but randomly teleport to a different part of the map every 3 seconds
- Cannot stop moving
- Your bullets don't hurt but instead push players
- Your bullets speed other players up
- The game switches to a 2v2 instead of a 1v1v1v1
- Two people meld together to become a monstrosity with one person controlling movement and the other controlling shooting
- When your bullets hit someone, they create a bullet-stopping wall
- Two characters are lifelinked
- You have a bounty on your head and give double points if killed.
- YOU BECOME A COLOSSUS AND EVERY OTHER PLAYER HAS TO KILL YOU BEFORE YOU KILL THEM
And that is just SOME of what we have in store.
So why should you trust us to make this awesome game? Well, for one, we are not new to game development. We have worked on games both academically and professional and each of us holds a degree in our respective field (Design, Art, and Programming). Also, as obvious as this might sound, we want to make this game great. That means making sure that when finished, Patch Notes is polished and bug-free on the Xbox--either arcade or indie games. We will be constantly playtesting it, and making sure that the visual and audio feedback is there to make the whole experience of Patch Notes phenomenal.
With your donations, all of this can happen. Finishing Patch Notes: The Game is going to be a large and difficult process, and with your help, we can put in the tender, loving programming and art to make our game stand tall.
