Test your reflexes and your will to survive as you escape the incoming Supernova! Do you have what it takes to NovaScape?
NovaScape is a mobile phone based video game application, in which the player will control a spaceship using the gyroscope within their phone. The player will tilt their phone from left to right in order to control the side to side flying motion of their spaceship.
The inspiration behind NovaScape came from a very simple game I used to love and play called Cube Runner. The purpose of the game is to achieve a high score based on flying distance, the longer you fly by avoiding the obstacles the more your score would increase. What I want to do is take Cube Runner to an entirely new level, with much more intuitive controls and a greater user interactive experience.
That is when I thought of NovaScape! An endless action video game where the user would control a spaceship using the gyroscopic function built into their phone, to fly though space and avoid all obstacles in their path.
The game starts out with a brief video intro of a supernova explosion where the plane will be frantically flying away from.The video will smoothly transition into an over the shoulder game play view of the spaceship. The background will be moving and obstacles will be flying at the plane from the horizon.
The purpose of the game is to achieve a high score by flying the greatest distance possible while avoiding incoming asteroids and meteors. The longer the player stays alive by avoiding these impacts the more their score will increase and the harder the game play will get. Such increasing difficulties will included; meteor showers, black holes, comet strikes, etc.
The two main obstacles in the game so far are Asteroids and Meteors. My vision is to have many more obstacles developed to make this game truly blossom into the game I know it will become.
If the player crashes into such objects, their health bar will decrease and the Supernova will encroach ever closer. Better watch out! If you mess up too many times you will be engulfed within the fiery abyss to never see the universe and all its splendor again... Or you could just press replay and give it a second shot. Good Luck! Lets see if you got what it takes to NovaScape!
As of right now NovaScape is in its early design phase with much more work on the horizon. Were ready to move into the Development phase, the only issue is funding. I have been able to get NovaScape this far with family investments along with multiple loans but I have run out of money. On top of running my newly formed company 3 Bros Studios, I have to work a full time job to make ends meet. Its time for me to take NovaScape and 3 Bros Studios to the next level and dedicate 100% of my time and energy to this project. I am 75% there and need help with this final push my make my vision a reality.
That is where Kickstarter comes in to play. With the help of your pledges, we will complete NovaScape and get this amazing game out for everyone to enjoy. I need your help Kickstarter, help me kick this game into the final stage of development and finally finish and launch this game.
-Take NovaScape from Design into the Development phase.
-Finalize iOS Development and move onto All other mobile platforms.
-Create a Multiplayer NovaScape Pro edition with an HD format.
-Finalize and Perfect all Animations.
-Add even More Obstacles to overcome.
-Have NovaScape be a 100% FREE application for all to enjoy.
-Eventually move from mobile devices to PC, Xbox and Playstation!
Once NovaScape loads you will be taken to the main screen. On this main screen your options will be to :
-Play the game
-Learn how to play the game
-Enter the Space Station to choose or upgrade your spaceship
-Check out the Global High Scores
-Edit your Settings ex.(Music, Gyroscope Sensitivity, Sound Effects)
-Connect with Facebook (Share stats, Records and High Scores)
During the gameplay the player will collect special bonus stars that can be used to purchase upgrades such as:
*Iron core upgrade (less damage taken upon impacts)
*Increased health bar
*Modify color of spaceship
There are 4 ship designs so far, my goal is to have over 10 completely unique and iconic ship designs! This will be possible if my pledge goals are reached with Kickstarter.
At randomized points throughout the game, a bright shooting star will fly over the ships wing and take a flying position in front of the player. If the player can catch up to the shooting star and collect it, the gameplay will be transitioned into a first person cockpit mode.
Within this cockpit mode the player will press a hyperspace button flashing on the screen in front of them and send them through hyperspace. During this hyperspace boost that will last 10 seconds, the spaceship will fly through a bunch of bonus stars.
When hyperspace ends, the spaceship will be launched into a new and colorful galaxy.
If the player fails to catch up to the shooing star in a set amount of time, the star will shoot off and you will have to wait until it comes around again. The incentive behind the bonus round is to:
- Add a bonus score multiplier
- Hyperspace to a new galaxy
- Increase the players score
Within the game, there is the ability to share and log your stats and high scores on Facebook. There will also be a Global Leaderboard and the ability to look up users personal stats via a Usercard.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
As we all know designing games is a tough challenging road and full of risks to overcome. I believe that the reward is in watching your users enjoy your hard work that you have spent hours designing, coding and implementing. So far NovaScape has come from my personal investments to fund all of the operations that entail the video game development. I decided to go the Kickstarter route due to the availability of external resources and feedback I can obtain.
There is minimal overhead associated with NovaScape and my start up company 3 Bros Studios, LLC but I plan on expanding and hiring shortly. My passion is to take my visions of video game imaginary and bringing them to reality. This undoubtedly takes resources in the form of money, which at my age are hard to come by. Therefor I have to express my need for help on this project.
I have been working night and day on this game and to get my company afloat. I will stop at nothing to achieve my dreams of running a top notch game development company, not only for mobile devices but for all platforms.
That being said, if this Kickstarter fails I will only get up, brush myself off and try again. I will take what I have learned from why I failed and apply the knowledge to a positive future.
The risk associated with this projects bottlenecks to the point of personal investments that if needed I will continue to find a way to make. If needed I'll work two jobs to make this game happen and make sure it is taken the the level of perfection I such desire.
So that is it Kickstarter, that is where you come in to play. Help me make this the next Hit Sensation that the mobile world has yet to set their sights on. Help me get my company off its feet and begin to fly higher and higher to always develop the next "big thing".
Thank you again for reading my story. I hope you have some insight now to who I am and what I am capable of. I will stop at nothing to obtain what I have set out to achieve and I hope you will stop at nothing to help me.
As of right now, NovaScape is in its early design phase with much work to be done. I want to improve the spaceships, the obstacles and every galaxy you hyperspace to. I want to take NovaScape to the next level of design and development with all the input I can obtain from kickstarter and every other source available.
I want NovaScape to be the next Temple Run and take this mobile market by storm. I need to hire a team to back me with 3 Bros Studios, LLC so I can implement new and interesting ideas. Everything is looking great so far but like I said before there is still so much more work to be done and that requires funding. So with the help of Kickstarter I will make sure that NovaScape will be the next Mobile Hit Sensation.
